Since trying to do one post per week is actually a lot more tedious than I thought. Sometimes I forget my captions.
Going back to this project...
I was able to with David in HK to witness the printing of his book about macau.
It's called "Macau: Work in Progress". A six year compilation of his photos about Macau. It has some great images inside. Can't wait to get my signed copy!
Stayed for half a day inhaling ink scents and observing how this guy's 30 years experience show.
he sees color in an amazing way.
After having an exciting and interesting day at the printers, not much interesting, creatively, happened the next day. and in my attempt to "see" differently, this was recorded in my pixels
at least i tried. and i will keep on doing it.
same here, more or less
And then this photo.
Shot on our way back from a day trip to Hong Kong. Amazing how he grows so fast!
Now this photo...
It's the Banyan Tree Indoor pool I shot for a web publication about Macau. This are those times I wish I had a 17mm TS lens. But I just can't justify the cost if I get one. For now, I think I need to invest on more and better lights.
I spotted this man along the streets of Macau focused on his reading. Not minding the chaos of the tourist around him. Quite amazing I must say.
Last photo of Elias' grandparents before they left for home (Davao City, Philippines).

Our club is currently on preps for our yearly exhibition. This year's theme is something to do with motion. I am not submitting this photo but "motion" was on my mind while I was walking around looking for a photo.
and a product of creative juices running low...
A new look of my website is on the works. Head over to jojomamangun.com to have a sneak peek. Let me know too what you think.
The weather this past week has been a little crazy.
I have always liked that after-rain feeling. It's like life gets back to normal or something. I especially like the rain-wet pavement for its reflection. So, last wednesday after a rain, I walked around Macau (while waiting for my wife) to take some street snaps.
I love reflections (except mine)!
to be completely honest, this project is really taking a while to finish (haha). As much as I want to post better photos, I just can't. It's complicated.
But he "un-complicates" it for me.
look at those cheeks!

Today in Coloane.
as usual, clicking the photo will redirect you to my flickr page (just renewed), etc..
and btw, here's the first installment of a project I recently worked on. team portraits for Macau TrailHiker 2011
This photo i took last night was a product of creative juice running low. It is my very bad attempt at replicating/imitating/copying the cover of Joe Mcnally's (signed copy) The Moment It Clicks. I was reading it for the nth time for some inspiration (read: imitation).
I was also excited last night for today's visit to the Macau leg of the World Press Photo 2011 exhibition.

It was again full of inspiring and disturbing bodies of work. I saw the show last year and I have to say that this years winning images are less graphic.
It has also strengthened my personal belief that prints is still the best medium/final output for photographs.
As usual, click on the photo to redirect you to my Flickr page and see the larger versions.
Kris-Belle took this photo while I was putting Elias to sleep and petting Cuddy. Cuddy is doing great with Elias so far. She's gentle around him.
Maybe she's a little jealous but i think we are doing great in giving her, her needed attention. This photo i took last night reminded me on how behaved and good she is. I can't wait till Elias is big enough to pet her (Cuddy doesn't like rough plays).
Elias is one month today anyway. I think seven more months and they'll be for each other.
