Weekly Photo Challenge: “Illumination”

Here are some photos I salvaged* from my London trip which kind of matches this week’s theme of “Illumination”:

My sister’s were in the way of the shot and wouldn’t walk out of the picture… oh well… (actually I didn’t really notice since it was raining at the time and my camera was getting soaked)

I have no clue what those buildings are… just attracted to the lights…

Well, when you travel over a few hours to get here and only have less than 30 minutes to take photos before the bus leaves… I guess you just have to make do with whatever lighting (or lack of) that you are given… here is my interpretation of the view of Stonehenge on 21st December 2012… winter solstice and coincidentally an important day in Mayan calendar…

  * For those that didn’t know, I had one of my memory cards wiped out so I lost a lot of valuable photos of places which I don’t know whether I will have another chance of going. Frustrating but there is nothing I could do once I’m back home. Oh well.

Weekly Photo Challenge: “Geometry”

I’m probably late for this theme of “Geometry”, but just took a photo last weekend where there were countless rectangles and triangles jumbled up in a photo. (Well it was actually a hastily taken photo while I was rushing between challenges in a photomarathon, but that is another story and will be told another time).

So the photo:

Actually, for the briefest of moments, I pondered over trying to submit this photo for microstock too (well, when you’re barren for submissions for over 5 months, almost anything you take you will start considering… haha). As such, I actually “cloned out” a security guard who was sitting there. Could you find where the security guard was originally sitting?

[P.S. BTW, I did submit two other photos to iStockphoto to try, pending results. I don’t have high hopes, but still hope that my next post will be with the “Upload Approvals” category instead of “Upload Rejections” one. **Fingers crossed**]
