Last week, I searched for a studio in one of the malls near our place. I need IDs for my application for SSS pension and I haven’t had my ID taken since I left the bank sixteen years ago.
I don’t indulge in selfies like most people do specially on Facebook where photos are so filtered you would think they all have flawless faces. They don’t look real to me. (Such an exaggeration to look good…haha). With such apps clearly on hand even with poorly taken photos, I think creativity is lost. I hate facing the camera especially in a formal one like a photography studio. I always prefer holding the camera and practise on my shots. The picture actually turned out nice with a white background to my dark pink top. “A little to the right ma’am”, the photographer said. “Would you prefer to remove your eyeglasses?” “No”, I answered. Let it be said that this is how I look on my 60th year. Mom got a copy of one of my 2″ x 2″ pictures and said, “ang ganda“. Who would admire a photo with a subtle hint of lines on one’s face except your mom? Laughs…. Oh but I had my hair trimmed and blown dry before I had my picture taken, that’s the secret 🙂
Got a total now of 1,842 blog posts including this one. I have clearly forgotten some of what I wrote a few years ago. Maybe some of the subjects are quite redundant to write about. Maybe there is a need to change the writing style or change theme. I like the clear lines of Misty Look though, I’ve been using it since I started blogging seven years ago. The theme is easy to customize and navigate and I like that you can change the header photos at every post. I must admit I often forget to update my other blogs. I have five including this main site. It is hard to start all over again but it is one of the challenges of blogging, maintaining a site and thinking of some worth-reading content of course.
How’s your blogging journey?
