As a kid, I was painfully shy and quiet. That was partly the reason why I took to the internet way back when. Writing has always come easier than talking out loud, and provides the opportunity to filter my thoughts. But even writing as a medium fails to tempt out the entangled mess of things that I harbour in my head most of the time; perhaps due to my inability to articulate them well enough to justify wasting someone’s time, or perhaps due to my fear of having to tend to the consequences of uttering controversial opinions.
It’s hard opening myself up to others I guess. But I have a strong feeling that it is the sense of alienation that resulted which turned me to the beauty of photography.
Details of the outfit- I adore the open back of my chiffon dress, but never actually had the chance to show it off when I got it, being weak against LA’s chilly temperate climate. Now that I’m back in the human oven also known as Singapore, nothing is stopping me.
I also ended up not bringing my awesome raincoat cape when I went to meet Ade and Puey for dinner; like most thunderstorms in Singapore however, the heavy rain ended pretty quickly- halfway through my shoot in fact. Pity.
