The shy, the reserved & the least expected ones will someday come to the light. Comfort zone you say; how long I ask. What if some day you wake up, the zone you protected is lost? What if someday you wake up & find the walls you built is broken unbeknownst to you? How long will you hold onto something which is just your imagination? How about stepping one foot at the time? How about a hello to the world? Who knows, you could be a surprise to self if only you give a chance & believe in opportunities.
So what if you failed?! Who never did?! – Ever heard failure being stepping stones to success? Do you think or believe that’s a mere fantasy & fiction? – Good if you did believe that way because when you are conditioned to believe so, I’m sure you will believe in chances & opportunities as well. It’s all in the mind I keep telling you & yet again I will remind you of such.
Be mindful of this cherie – It is that one step at a time, always!
I’ve known none much of your music but yes, one thing I could always associate you with is your throat tearing vocal to the highest of the highest and to infinity and beyond.
I remember the days I made fun of your high screeching vocal ability because that is the only cue for me to recognize “Ah, that screeching singer guy has come finally” and I ignore but I ended up watching your entire music video.
I have few songs of yours in my playlist. I have been playing those on loop for no reason for long as I remember. Which means I have to admit I grew listening to LP though I did not realize that till now.
Never thought the day would come I would say this but yes, Linkin Park will never be the same without your screaming, screeching high pitched voice.
So, my dear Chester Bennington,
To me you will always be remembered as the guy with that high screech voice who was the catalyst for the band. Yes, I will miss your voice for sure.
These are the images of my amateur photo work when I began to photograph 2 years back as a hobby. Little did I know, photography & the photo edits would become my full time work. As days progressed, I began participating in photo challenges hosted by various websites, Instagram & posted few on Facebook. This has taken me to a new level of confidence of my new skill in photography.
I began to notice things,
things that are of minute in its detail;
things that are often interpreted as mundane, boring & no beauty at all;
things that are ignored & dismissed as no novelty by a mere human eye;
– I photographed all those mentioned above
Of recent, I have joined a corporate & my commitment to photograph & blogging has reduced over time. One night, I happened to go through my old picture works & its photo edits, realising how much I missed my blog & photography – I miss what I once enjoyed doing the most. These old pictures brought me back memories of sanity. The times I had no job, these were the “things” (as mentioned in the above points) that which had me sane & occupied.
Glad I came across WP’s Nostalgia Photo Challenge which gave me an opportunity to go through my archived photo work & enabling me to express my gratitude 🙂
WOW!!!!!!!! Cannot believe today has been a year exact i wrote this article “life at work and life with life itself” dated on October 14, 2014!! This was my second writing & i remember how nervous i was to publish & make my writing go public. You can read about the article here.
My first blog writing was on October 7, 2014 which i wrote here regarding the types of writers.
Hi again.. I’m usually not a person of many words but I have been feeling this urge to write something posting this picture.. Not sure what I must write though but there was a time I enjoyed writing and it felt so good and liberated. Overtime i stopped writing not because I was too busy or life’s demand took a toll on me but, I ran out of ideas and stuff and I became too idle. I even dreamt of becoming a writer.. But to write what is the question I had no answer.
Few of my good friends tried to put me back on track to write but, I simply lost interest & gave up writing .. I have been going through The Daily Posts different categories & various contests they conduct for each days & weeks keeping the participants’ skills alive .. So I decided why not let me try writing again. If it was my writing skills that made me create a WordPress blog account in the first place which later made me do amateur photography, maybe I could try and do both by posting a picture and write few lines about it. No pressure on myself to write as a must but just a thought to try something new to add life to my blogging skills. That’s all.
For this picture I posted now “In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Boundaries.” I have no idea why this urge to post this picture and write same time but seemed appropriate to me for weekly photo challenge – boundaries.. I have already posted 3 photos for the week’s challenge. This will be my fourth and final photo for the challenge. I’ve been participating with excitement since I learnt of this challenge from October 2 onwards. Guess I will try to keep up with the daily posts and participate much as I can..
Oh and by the way, my blog has completed its 1 year anniversary on October 7.
A BIG thank you to all my 84 blog followers and few e-mail subscribers who made me smile by hitting the follow button and still make me smile each time i see a “like” being hit on my posts by you generous all.. Thanks again to the followers & keep up with the follow updates 🙂
Hi. This is in reference to the weekly photo challenge themed boundaries.. This will be my first photo challenge i am participating in.. I have always been different ( so my friends say ) and have always wanted to try something new because things that are of routine bore me too quick!
Initially when i first created my WordPress account, i started off as a writer writing small time articles and blog it.. Eventually my writing interest faded off. I have been aimless and jobless for a while.. and it’s like i have so much time in this world and i got nothing to do. It was during this short term hiatus i reasoned out what my capabilities are and what i am capable of. It was at this point i realised what little i can do in my given time.. Of course i do have a lot of bucket list to do .. I see a lot of beautiful pictures on the internet that people post on Instagram and Facebook and i feel so missed out that i could not travel places and see how wonderful things around me are. Of course i envy those who travel and post pictures! I’m a human. I have to be fair & honest to how I feel about these things.
As days and months passed i started taking photographs ranging from randomness to silliness to non sense. It was during this time i self learnt what amateur photography is. It was through this amateur photography, i have leant to edit the pictures, well, I’m not so professional enough though but i can say i feel better than what i have started when i was clueless. Taking photos and spending time editing keep me occupied. I even lose my sleep editing. Such has become my hobby. ( Well yea, I’m a very poor sleeper too )
Okay, getting back to the point. My reason as to why i chose this photo of my desktop with a city image in it is because, i like travel. Meet new places, people, see the colours around, become mesmerized with the city, village and its culture, food and take photos. Since i could not have those in real (maybe some day i might) but watch through the internet, THAT “COMPUTER” IS A BIG BOUNDARY to me .. If only i could cross over to the other side through the computer itself!! Well hey! think of this way. Wouldn’t it be much easier for me if only i could get sucked into this computer literally, (like i seriously mean literally) each time i mentally wished “wish i could be in that place” and ZOOPPP! I’m in that place!!!!!
*Eyes open after wishing* Meh… I’m still here & my time is 12:30am.
Reality sucks! Doesn’t it?
PS: The scene in the above image on my computer is from the movie Anna aka MindSpace.
