the pd trip

the annual concert was held about two weeks back, much to the acclaim of its audience. more importantly, much to our relief as well, that it went on quite smoothly. well, maybe not that smoothly. but the important thing was the audience loved it, warts and all. we had taken months to prepare for just those 90 minutes onstage (collectively la). the director had sort of given us an ultimatum (actually, he gave us an ultimatum more than once): with this trip to port dickson, he would be able to gauge if we had a concert or not.

for some of us, we thought that we were already doing okay, considering our minor parts we were holding. for the clutch players, well, the burden was on them, naturally.

and so, come the appointed saturday afternoon, we all boarded a bus to go to teluk kemang. i had purposely brought along my camera for the trip, intending to capture some candid moments during practice (which never happened). we had heard beforehand that the place where we were rehearsing is a beautiful site, and i was in eager anticipation.

you know, maybe i'll just let the pictures do the rest of the talking. apologies, if i don't convey the full grandeur of the place. i get whimsical sometimes, if not all the time.

so i finally got myself a new laptop. it was almost an unplanned purchase, but i got to thinking about getting a new machine when my old vaio just aborted this one process i was running (nef -> jpeg). that was probably the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back.

of course, the old vaio held a lot of memories on its hard drive. the logical action to take would be to transfer them to the new laptop. given the wireless network at home, this was almost a cinch. and after installing the pertinent software, i browsed all the images located in their new home. and that's when i found these all over again.

not quite as nicely composed or impactful as i'd like them to be (oh, the shame! to think that i was taking a photography class at the time... ), they still remind me of those days back in pittsburgh. and just like many of us, our university days definitely stay with us. some would be bitter, some would be sweet, but all teaching us valuable lessons that stay with us through our time here in this world.

to those about to embark on their own path, selamat!

the first

i'm not quite sure why i finally decided to put something up on the web. i've been resisting the idea for so long: for one, i've never been confident that i have something worthwhile to share. and another, i'm a little worried that i won't be able to fulfill this commitment. well, i have been posting some pictures on the web, but never on a space as public as this one yet. add to that, i'm not totally conversant with the current blogging systems or what-have-yous. but i guess i can always edit the entry if it doesn't suit my fancy. after all, this could well be just another flight of fancy, but hopefully, one that does end up somewhere further than the comfort of familiar surroundings.

what i can say for sure is that i have been greatly encouraged to take this whim on a further ride, thanks to some great fotopagers. not only encouraged, i would dare say that they've even inspired me to keep on trying to capture those great moments just lying in wait out there. thanks. i hope to continue seeing great pictures from these people, and i hope to be able to inspire people in turn with mine. it's probably going to be a neverending journey, but one i'll gladly take.

for now, this will be the start of it.
