Weekly Photo Challenge: Let There Be Light!

Hi everybody!

Wow, I’ve just realised that it has been a millenia since I did my last entry for the “Weekly Photo Challenge”. I do apologise; I haven’t really been inspired to take photos of anything really ><

Anyways, here is my entry for the week! I went with a couple of friends to Sydney Aquarium for their birthday. Having not been there for over 6 years (yep, it’s been that long~) it was an eye-opening experience to reminisce in the memories of my younger childhood (how cheesy does that sound hehe)

Upon walking around the place, there were various sea-life which had neon lighting within their tanks, casting the whole display to release numerous rad colours. All photos below were taken on my iPod.

First it display this dark blue colour...

And then it changed to this aqua blue colour.

Hope you all enjoyed this week’s entry, and hopefully I’ll be back next week for the next challenge! Thanks for reading, and have a wonderful day!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite

Hello everyone!!

This week’s theme is “infinite” and honestly, the photo I took a couple of days ago was seriously a coincidence.

I went to St James Station to visit the State Library, and it was the first time that I had actually taken any photos there. On that day, I had realised for the first time that it was a truly stunning train station to be at. The photo below was taken on my iPod.

Looking down the platform towards that tunnel, not sure when and where it ends.

Hope you enjoyed this week’s entry! Sorry if it seems lacking ><

Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

Hello everyone! Wow, it’s been ages since I last did a photo challenge. I do apologise, and in all honesty, I feel absolutely guilty about it ><

So, here are my entries for this week!

This first photo was taken in the library on the 8th floor at my university. Bored as hell from the countless pages of readings, I was inspired to actually take a moment and ponder upon the view which I had totally ignored.

An early morning start at university. The view itself helped keep me motivated to finish a couple of readings before my first tutorial.

The next photo was actually taken the next day, after my girly cravings kicked in early in the morning. Green tea latte with waffles drizzled with chocolate sauce? Why the hell not?

The next morning, I decided to spoil myself...no regrets ><

Weekly Photo Challenge: One Shot, Two Ways

HI GUYS!!!

It hasn’t been long since my last entry for the weekly photo challenge due to me being TRULY delayed and everything but this time I am on schedule (lol)

This week’s theme is “One shot, Two ways”, which means that the photographer has to take a photo in both a horizontal and vertical view. My entry this week was taken during my trip to Melbourne with my family early this year. When my sister and I visited the State Library of Victoria, I had taken a photo of the “La Trobe Reading Room”. The layout of the room was just breathtaking, and to think that it was found in the actual library is truly amazing.

So, hope you all enjoyed this entry and I’ll see you all next week!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreshadow

Hi guys!

So this week’s topic is “foreshadow”. Below is a photo that I had taken this morning. Whilst finishing off some homework, I had ordered a Green Tea Latte for the first time. It was absolutely gorgeous and I knew that I was in for a fantastic ride. The coffee foreshadowed a very progressive yet distracting study session.

Thank you all for reading and I hope to see you all next week!!

Weekly Photo Challenge: The Golden Hour

Hi guys! Firstly, I have to apologise since I didn’t do a post for the photo challenge last week. It was just too busy for me and I didn’t get a chance to go out and find “inspiration”. I figured that since I was inspired to take anything last week, then there was no point to taking part of the challenge. And to be honest, my idea for the theme didn’t really work out since my actual “companion” doesn’t exactly exist anymore… So yeah, so sorry about that ><

Anyway, this week’s theme is “The Golden Hour” – the first and last hour of sunlight of the day. Below is a photo that I had taken on my Melbourne trip during the beginning of the year(I took a lot, I know ><) This was when the sun had started to set over Melbourne. I was back in my hotel room getting changed to go out with the family for dinner since the sun started to set at around 8 at night! The quality is, yes, terrible but the photo itself I believe was so beautiful.

The sunlight felt amazing. Sadly, the window couldn't open so I couldn't take a better photo ><

Weekly Photo Challenge: The World Through Your Eyes

Hello, hello. This week’s photo challenge theme is “The World Through Your Eyes”. A tough one in my opinion but then I realised that I had taken something very recently.

I made a trip to the Art Gallery of NSW during the last week of the semester for an university assessment. It has been so long since I had last been there yet not much has changed since I last had been there years ago. One thing in particular was the scenery around the building. Despite it being winter, the weather was beautiful on that day, and I just had to take a photo before I regretted it. 

I remember I had to squat low in order to take this shot properly. I say that this shot is considered quite successful since there wasn’t any cars or buses to disturb the scenery.

I was really luck to take this shot without any disturbance or weird people looking at me ><

I also had the sudden urge to take a photo of a beautiful tree up ahead. How I took it was from right below the tree, 5 steps away from the tree and then 10 steps away from the tree. Once again the sun was beautiful therefore making the shots more majestic than ever.

10 steps away from the tree. It was so magnificent that I couldn't help but take photos of it :)

Anyway, this is my post for the week. I hope you all enjoyed it and I can’t wait for next week’s!! I’m absolutely loving these challenges! See you all soon~~
