The past days I’ve been thinking about what new stuff to post here. And I guess the best to post at this time would be what I’ve been doing for almost a year ago.
Around this time last year, I’ve been going around looking for photography opportunities. I haven’t been given that chance, until months later. One of my first few opportunities was with this organization running an event called “Give the Gift of Life Walk” I actually got in this event with the help of my brother. Luckily, they needed someone who could cover/take photos for the event.
The event was held early in the morning, somewhere really far from our place: High Park. It was the 1st of October, 2011, and our call time was I think 8:00 am. So considering how far the place is, and it’s our first time to go there, we had to leave early and it was one of those cold mornings where you wish you could just stay in bed instead. I even remember that I was wearing multiple jackets because I was still wasn’t used to having this really cold weather (considering coming for a really warm country.) And I was still really sleepy that morning because I couldn’t sleep well the night before. Had to wake up around 5:00 am to get ready, and left around 7:00 am I think.
What I like about going to places like this early in the morning, is the cold morning feeling with how the places looks like: green trees with red leaves all around. It really looked beautiful at that time, with not much sunshine yet. Though, it got warmer later in the day.
Anyway, it was a fun experience as I got to learn how to take better photos for such events, socializing with people, and to play with my cam and practice with my editing skills.
Here are some of the other photos (to view all other photos you can find them here.)
