Finally Joining ‘The Party’

[Written Yesterday]

Well, I am officially using Instagram. I uploaded my first ‘gram’ yesterday and my second one today. However, one thing I am realizing these days is that I am not very good at taking pictures with my smartphone [when compared to a camera]. Maybe it is because the resolution is not as high or maybe I am just used to capturing images with a camera. Well, whatever it is, I guess practice makes perfect and it will get easier with time.

[Photographing 2015] The Thirteenth Week

The thirteenth week of 2015 [more specifically, Saturday, March 27th] was a special one for me. I faced my fears and although I would love to report that I was brave and things went smoothly, that would be a lie as it wasn’t the case. But, you will have to wait until my next post to read all about it. The first image above gives you a hint of what I was up to.

And without further adieu, here are the photos!

  1. You’re supposed to capture moments rather than quality with Instagram, so you’re doing just fine! 😉

    I would love to read more about Fo Guang Shan. My mom had the privilege to visit a few years ago, not yet for me. We are members of their Malaysian chapter though, and there is one big monastery over here too. Some people are not too happy that they are too “commercialized” and not exactly doing things the strict Buddhist way, but I suppose it is alright. They are trying to attract more young people to be be involved with Buddha’s teachings and (hopefully) be good people so I think it is a commendable thing to do. It would be troublesome for everyone to be monks, but if more people practice good habits, the world will be a better place, wouldn’t it?

    1. Thanks, CL! But I am a perfectionist when it comes to photos [too bad it doesn’t spill into other areas of my life]!

      I am torn about how I feel about Fo Guang Shan. It is indeed a beautiful place but not what I was expecting. The Starbucks was a surprise but I would be a hypocrite if I criticized it as we enjoyed an iced coffee there to cool off as it was very hot and humid that day.

  2. I loved the rooster hehe. Does your bravery has anything to do with the Ferris wheel? I also tried it for the first (and only time) in Taiwan!

  3. Great photos again, Constance. Love the avenue of Cotton Trees the most, but those Unique Flowers are so beautiful. The Ferris Wheel looks really big. Good for you that you dared to go on it. Egg pancake sounds different, but I’m sure it’s delicious. 🙂
