A year ago today


A year ago today I started blogging, this particular blog. I was hooked by the prospect of presenting my "wanna be" photographs with parcels and tidbits of my life. A year has gone too fast, too fast for my liking. But I have something to show for it, this blog and the other blogs I addictively called my "passions".

Above photo is a sculpture by Australian Brett Whiteley entitled: "Almost Once 1968/1991". this particular one is installed just outside of the Gallery of New South Wales. Made of black butt timber and fibreglass, to me it exemplifies our lives and shared experiences.

We are but a product of this recycled world. Every carbon and atom that makes us today are parts of other living beings who existed before us. Even the air we breathe are the same particles that our ancestor and other animals breathed. We are a product of a our past...

Thanks Dong... I guess depending on what you want to achieve in blogging and your motivations you will inevitably reach that milestone. I think the first year is the hardest.

Definitely, sculpture looks so simple enough: one unlit posporo while the other one is a spent one. Just the huge size, approximately two stories high!

Thanks for dropping by...
