Sometimes I wish I the ghost of Henri Cartier-Bresson would inhabit my body. It’s not just because I want to have a suave French accent, more so for his talent for snap-shooting photography. His goal was to capture the candid moments of life and it’s that kind of thing I attempt to do when I snap Mina and Panya on our outings.
I’m far from being an accomplished photographer so I end up with a boatloads of crap images which I have to sift through before finding a few gems to post here on the blog. I see a lot of bum shots, and ordinarily that would be a good thing, but in my case, the rear ends belong to a pair of dogs. In any case I thought I’d share some of these rubbish shots with you after the jump.
If you’ve reading this, then you clearly have more tolerance than I given you credit for, pat yourself on back. You are probably also thinking there must be an ulterior motive, and you’d be right. It’s for a good cause though – mine. I love the humble Canon G6 camera I use to take my photos, but it’s six years old now and it’s not as picture-perfect as when I bought it from the friendly photo chemist in town. I’d like a new camera and if I can’t buy one, I may as well steal one win one. And this post serves as an entry to a local photo competition. The prize is a swanky, compact Olympus PEN E-PL1, a modern camera based on the retro stylings of the original 35mm PEN that was released in 1959 (see the PEN story).
If you’d like to enter the competition, you can find more information on the IC’s blog. It ends November 12th.
