Picture Writing Project: Fireworks

It was one of those rare moments when I raised my head to the sky because of overflowing gratitude. Our hotel room was facing the city view. Everyone went out of the room and I was left alone. It was a few hours before new year’s eve and we were waiting until 12 midnight to feel delight in seeing little glow of lights from afar. And then, just then, I saw fireworks lit up just outside the window. It was like looking at those fiery lights at close up view. And I was able to take a picture. I’m a lucky girl.

Happy new year everyone!

365 Days of Picture Writing

I really need to sharpen my brain. I have this short-term memory that I need to set a reminder for every single thing that I need to do. In 2013, I came up with a project that I intended to start doing on the very first day of 2014, the 365 Days of Picture Writing. It’s already the 3rd of ย January and I am only posting my first photo now, how bad is that? I don’t want to cancel my project so I’m still posting it anyway. Better late than never, right?

I got the idea from Lisa Congdon’s art and illustration blog that I shared through aย postย months ago. My version of the 365 Days project is to take a picture each day of something or someone significant on that particular day. It’s a totally new life for me. I have left my first job and I’m planning to take on a business venture. It’s going to be hard but I believe that I can get through this. ๐Ÿ™‚ Since it’s a new year and a new perspective, I want to do things that I have never done before, things with great meaning, and things that I’ve always wanted to do but didn’t had the time and inspiration to even start doing.

So here you go, my very first photo for the year. Happy new year everyone! ๐Ÿ™‚
