Greetings and welcome to my hand-spun blog+site. My photography journey has been incredible! It began with fun, then grew into passion, then I discovered profound love for it and there was no looking back. Please look around, the pictures here are the reflections of how I see the world. Enjoy exploring it.

post-vacation fever, a wedding and a birthday

Now that I’m back from vacation, I had very little time to catch up to the reality. I fell somewhat sick for a couple days but I’m back in position to shoot and rock my 3-day-wedding-weekend. Can’t wait! But, before I go, I have to pay a tribute to the legendary John Lennon. It’s his birthday today. I listened to John Lennon special in NPR this morning and got totally emotional.

Happy Birthday, John.

Enjoy a song I really, really like. I think “Kurt” from “Glee” did an excellent job in his rendition of “I wanna hold your hand”. Loved it!

This and that…

If you are following my blog, you already know the stuff that has been happening with me besides shooting weddings. It’s unbelievable how things happen in my life! I have this crazy side of me, where I decide to do something and I just make an attempt to do it. It’s not that these are just random acts of my mind. I prepare for things, I think through the dark and bright sides and then aim for success. Changing a job was an event happened that way. I didn’t really think that I would find another equally great job in this economy, but I did. I must have just gotten very lucky and I’m thankful for that.

In addition to dealing with my already insane schedule, I’m coping with a long commute to work everyday. That means waking up earlier, rushing to work and stressing about the traffic that I may have to face both ways. Although my husband advised me to stay calm about the traffic situation, my tragic mind (I’m still recovering from the fact that I will no longer be working with my husband) doesn’t completely allow me to do so. What do I do during that time? I listen to music. Today, for the second time, I got to hear John Mayer’s latest single on the radio. If you don’t know already, I am a BIG FAN of John!!!!! Here is a youtube video of his song “who says”. Fancy it!

My new favorite : song of the month

I never knew that I can take a country song so close to my heart. Well this one song deserves it all. Last night I was watching the AI final again. Heard the song “Pretty flowers” from Steve Martin’s new album “The Crow”, performed by two of the contestants. I instantly fell in LOVE with this song. The words are so sweet and real; so perfect for the people in love. I feel the song so deeply that I want to sing it (or play it to be on the safe side) for the love of life, but I have to wait twenty-five years before I can do that. Why so long? You have to listen to it in order to know it.

Here is the original version by Vince Gill and Dolly Parton. Enjoy!

Song of the month

Like many, I’m a music enthusiast. Growing up in an Asian household, I was bound to take some level of music lessons. While I quit singing long time back, I didn’t leave my love for music behind. I have to listen to music when I am cooking, cleaning, folding laundry, editing(definitely) and even when I’m coding! I think Pandora is awesome. Basically, I listen to >pandora all day long. Try it out if you are yet to.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE Grey’s Anatomy. I think the show uses the best music in the industry. I can’t say enough about this show, I don’t know how my Thursaday nights will be when this show is over!!! I’m also a BIG fan of American Idol. There are only three TV shows I watch regularly, AI is one them. I can’t decide who to root for this year. I guess I’ll wait until it comes down to top 6. This brings us to the song of the month (from me for you). I heard the song this week at AI, performed by Megan Joy. I found the cover of this song by Lauryn Hill with Bob Marley(It’s a song by Bob Marley). Although I’m not into rapping, hip-hop and all that, I fell in love with this song. Hope you enjoy it too.

Happy Friday…
