Thursday Thoughts: A Surprise Experiment

Yesterday, while roaming around London, my iPhone dies.

Luckily, I still had iPad Mini stashed away in my backpack.

So, I connected to the wifi to sent iMessages to my father to keep him updates on my whereabouts and I used its camera to continue taking photos.

The image was so much clearer and I felt I had a different photographic perspective to work with. So, it turned into quite a fun experiment.

Hmm… I may continue with this…

Developing Your Eye: Day 9 – A Pop of Colour

At present time, I think the world is a little bit grey.

Not because it’s the end of winter; I generally noticed that I don’t see much colour in life anymore. Perhaps it’s because of all the depressing world politics that we’ve gone a bit grey like the 70s.

We need more burst and intensity in our lives. Thus, I do keep my eye out for it. But I have found it difficult to find natural colours that are not a brand or supermarket bought flowers.

As luck would have it, I came across this beautiful door when I was in Chichester last week:

Besides the blue splash, I was drawn to the unique whale door knock. I’ve never seen anything quite like that before! Continue reading “Developing Your Eye: Day 9 – A Pop of Colour”

Developing Your Eye: Day 8 – Treasure

It doesn’t take much to make me happy.

The most simple of things can fill me with glee – and make me treasure the memory – for always: a comfy item of clothing that I will wear until it gets holes in it… a catchy song to dance to… a hot cup of tea… a beautiful sunset… t-switch inductions that allow me to hear better… a funny message from a good friend… my tattoo… I could go on and on.

Food often hits the spot.

It’s the minimal requirement of our lives and I also consider it an art form, as the cooks do put so much love, attention, and care into it.

Like a few days ago, the chefs at work created this pizza for me:

Developing Your Eye: Day 7 – Big

Go big or go home!

I think that was every cathedral master builder’s idea. It still fathoms me how they managed to build something of this scale back in the medieval days.

Alas, they still did it.

At first sight, Chichester Cathedral was very plain looking and rather small compared to others like Salisbury or Canterbury. But as I walked around, I found gems, such as the medieval ceiling art I mentioned in “Day 5 – Connect”.

Carrying on, I discovered these beautiful ceilings within the towers:
