Babie-bee, originally uploaded by MVNDee.

Babie-bee said that i dont have a real job hahaha just cause i basically can come in whenever and leave whenever and request day off the day before hahha.

So i went to bed late last night because i was watching "the ditchdigger's daughters", which touched my heart and brought tears to my eyes.

Very inspirational! So i decided to email the author Dr. Yvonne S. Thornton to say thank you. And to my surprised, she responded to my email, wow!

I will order the book as soon as i get paid! I think they should make this book a requirement for HS students...

Anyway, i drove my dad's car to work today because my car was blocked by a truck and i didnt feel like trying to get it out, plus i'd need to get get gas ahhaha. My office key is in the key chain with my car key, so i didnt have the key to the office. I stood downstairs waiting for the security guard so i can ask him to open the office for me. Waited and waited and no sight of him.

Then finally, i saw the maintenance guy. He's a really nice person. Always says hi to me and asks how am i doing. So i asked him if he can open my office for me. He told me to wait so he can go grab the key. On the way to the office, we just chatted. Then he asked "do you have babies?" ahahhahahahahah, that cracked me up hahahaha, i responded "no i am not married yet" ahhahaha. I think he asked because he saw me with the kids before hahaha i took them to the office a few times hahahha.
Then he followed with "do you have a boyfriend?" ahaha i said "yes i do have a boyfriend!" ahahhaha. Funny!

Anyway, time to get to work =)

p.s. yes! i am sooooo random i know, the photo has nothing to do with my entry ahhahaha

p.s.1. oh this morning babie-bee texted me with "happy anniversary my loving lil muiffin" ahhahaha how sweet of him!

coming soon ... hdr unleashed by kris kros

View on black
View in FULL

Truly, every page on this book contains my heart and soul. I hope you can feel my touch.

This is for beginners, intermediate and advanced HDR enthusiasts.

Looking for a good place to print my book. Suggestions welcomed.

I said in my previous post that it was my last posting before the release. But I just want feedbacks and suggestions from you. And I can't just take my eyes off from flickr. I guess I'm addicted to it.

Thank you for waiting. And wish me luck.

Sleep tight little buddy. Even President Obama doesn't have security this good.

As I've said in previous postings, when our boys were born, our Shepherd Romair took it upon himself to be their protector (as did our other Shepherd, Amber). I've often wondered what he would have done if we had ever raised a hand in anger towards the boys. Fortunately, we never had occasion to find out. See the comment box below for a couple more shots of this nature.

I've put together a set called Our Life Story depicting our life together over the past half century and containing over 150 images and descriptions which, for the most part, are in chronological order. Check it out and tell me what you think of it. Here's a sample page of a loose leaf book I've put together using the images and descriptions included in this set.

Korea: Seoul Workers

Dynamic doesn't quite describe how different Seoul is from day to day -- almost hour to hour. Things tend to get a bit crowded here with all the construction going on. It's a wonder how many businesses can fit, let alone survive.

Well, Now I got more experience to take similar Photos without putting my self in risk :)

I like this Poem :-

The Hooves of the Horses

The hooves of the horses - O' Witching and Sweet,
is the music earth steals from the iron-shod feet;
No whisper of lover, no trilling of bird,
Can stir me as hooves of the horses have stirred.

They spurn disappointment and trample despair,
and drown with their drum beats the challenge of care,
With scarlet and silk for their banners above,
they are swifter than fortune and sweeter than love.

On the wings of the morning they gather and fly,
In the hush of the night-time I hear them go by-
The horses of memory thundering through
With flashing white fetlocks all wet with the dew.

When you lay me to slumber no spot you can choose,
but will ring to the rhythm of galloping shoes,
and under the daisies no grave be so deep
but the hooves of the horses shall sound in my sleep.

-Will H. Ogilvie from Galloping

More messing about trying to make a highkey image in photoshop. My models are not quite as helpful as I would have liked.

(sorry - I've disabled comments, if only to save previous commentors from reading more of them. I do very much appreciate everyone's kind words!)

Morela says:

Mamula fortress was a prison once and this is a part of the wall in the courtyard, if you could call it that...
The fortress is now overgrowen with grass and all sorts of wild plants and flowers...
Definitly a place worth seeing when you're in Boka Kotorska bay

Buzkashi, Afghanistan

Popular game similar to polo. The riders have to take a goat or more usually a cow calf carcass rid with it around a flag and come back to drop it in a circle. No teams no rules. It is very violent but exciting. I nearly got trampled a couple times taking pictures and last week I got crushed against a barrier by several horses. Hope you like the shots (more in my photos)

Disclaimer: I will not be held responsible for any tiny wayward or wrong bits of grass you may find on this artwork during an ultra-close-up zoom. I'm sure this composite is of utter perfection, but if you may happen to find a tiny blob that gives away the fact I am not really coming out of my landlady's painting on the wall of her landing, do not write to me at my home address. Or any address. Dziekuje.

N.B. The 'painting' shows a candid snap taken during my lakeside portraiture the other week.
