Tumblr, a different world where you would get naive in the first place with all these signs and words you really can’t encounter day by day. Moved so many people without them knowing, connecting people with imaginary lines even though they are miles apart.
Tumblr is a world, the only world wherein people living in it would understand you. As a matter of fact, it is ironic to say that the people you just know in a virtual world understand you more than the persons you know in real life.
Tumblr is like our best friend. You’re sad? You spill it. You’re happy? You blog about it. Anything unusual happened today? You share it. But it’s a big realm, you’ll see sorts of people with different personalities but you’ll end up getting to know each other people since each of us has a purpose here which is to blog and that’s the mutual thing among us.
“Oh yes! Another fly!” You can’t blame me for acting like a noob whenever I see flies around the front yard. They’re common visitors anyway aside from the bugs and such. I took this a while ago, I was bored again and tried to search for some to take a picture of. I guess these flies come around too often. Funny how they don’t care about me taking pictures of them even though the camera’s lens go too near.
Looking at this photo gives me hope. It gives me a reason to smile. It gives me a reason to live life to the fullest each day. It gives me a reason not to feel oblivious about the good things that are happening to me. It gives me a reason not to feel sad and bad anymore.
I know it looks so simple with only one subject, the fly. I just fancy taking photos of insects on plants I know this sounds cliche; I see their own world through the super macro effect of my point-and-shoot camera. It lets me look into their own world in a different perspective, not only in a human being’s eyes. Since I love to take photos of insects and other animals, I just consider them as a challenge to a photographer. You can’t control them, you can’t control them as they move, you can’t control them if how they should act in front of the camera. How much more when flies would fly and keep you from chasing them?
Where and when was it taken?
I just took it today, specifically during the afternoon since I was quite bored. Whenever I feel like taking photos, I always stay on our so-called front yard or whatever I should call it. I’d like to discover so many things there which is quite a good subject for photography!
Why do you want to join #ShutterBugsPH?
Honestly speaking, I think this is the fourth photography group I wanted to join if I’m not mistaken. For some reason, I want to be in it because I want to prove that anyone can be a photographer. I, myself, am not inclined to photography back then but the blogs that I followed inspired me to take photos and express through them. Now, with #ShutterBugsPH, it’s my turn to inspire.
