2011 Recap


2011 is coming to an end... Realize we haven't done much, as usual. Folders of photos are still untouched. Films have not been developed. And the vision is still blurry... Nevertheless, it is still worth-while to look back and appreciate what we've achieved in the past 12 months.

Early this year, we created our website for wedding photography,, and did some serious assignment ;). Yay!

We completed our Paris Project (Part 1,Part 2), which composes of our photos taken in Paris in 2009 and 2010. And we finished processing them in 2011, finally!!

We participated in the IPA Street Photography Contest. Not awarded. But the process of selecting our photo entries (i.e., "cut" or "keep") was fun!

I explored extensively on film. Here is my favorites this year. 

We traveled quite a lot. In Asian and Europe. \:D/. More photos will be posted on 2012, I guess. And hopefully there will be Italy Project, Germany Project, or Vietnam Project :D

Sometime, I wanted to share more here with my thoughts on photography. And there's a time when I wanted to delete this blog as I'm not sure what's the purpose to maintain it. In the end, let only the pictures speak. Emotion that comes from a photograph to audiences, if any, should be the end result.

Anyway, I would like to thank you all for stopping by and wish you an awesome 2012 ahead!

Cheers !!!

Occupy Frankfurt - 2011

Occupy Wall Street is a people-powered movement that began on September 17, 2011 in Liberty Square in Manhattan’s Financial District, and has spread to over 100 cities in the United States and actions in over 1,500 cities globally. #ows is fighting back against the corrosive power of major banks and multinational corporations over the democratic process, and the role of Wall Street in creating an economic collapse that has caused the greatest recession in generations. 

As the financial center of Germany and the largest financial center in continental Europe, Frankfurt city could not be left out from this Occupy movement.

I was in Frankfurt on a Saturday afternoon to witness the scene. Occupy Frankfurt happened in a much peaceful and quiet way than what I saw on TV in New York. Few people gathered & camped out in Frankfurt's banking district. Probably it was just a start.

The mask of ‘V for Vendetta’, with the mustached white face frozen in a wide-mouthed leer, which is rather surreal and self-mocking, stood out from the crowd.

There was a debate event (I guess), as someone was giving a speech on stage, together with some music performance later.

Personally, I'm not sure if the protest/movement could make a big difference. Nevertheless, it has been amazing to see how the movement has spread globally and made us aware of these economic and social issues. For that, I choose these two photos to end the post.
