This is old news, but just got wind of this and it’s fabulous.

What do you really need a space for if you’re not there all the time? Even if you are, clean lines are an inspiration.

Kudos. I need space like this, for sure.

“When Christian Schallert isn’t cooking, dressing, sleeping or eating, his 24 square meter (258 square feet) apartment looks like an empty cube. To use a piece of furniture, he has to build it”.

“Located in Barcelona’s hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeon loft. Christian says its design was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home“.

Ah. The Golf Swing.

The mystery, for us mortals, which often give false hopes on the range and on the golf course. For us mortals, the golf swing lets us down, too many times. But sometimes we get that one beautiful strike, and our ‘hate’ for the golf swing dissipates in to the ether. Just to be disappointed and as angry at it, on the next tee.

It’s a mystery to us many time, but in PGA land, there are many golfers whom exemplify beautiful golf swings. And just like anything professional, there’s always that element of awe and inspiration to them.

The golf swing is nothing like anything else. It is a fluid art form, wrapped in tin foil majestic (especially in slo-mo).

From the set up, to the back swing, to the ‘cocking’ at the top, then the crisp and direct down swing, which inevitably strike that synthetic art form of a golf ball, in a precise angle.

Then the product of that pro swing is a sharp and controlled trajectory of that projectile in to the atmosphere, tidily crushing the air flow and gently landing on the exact spot determined just seconds ago.

Well, a good swing is a thing of beauty. Below are the Top 5 Golf Swings.An opinion piece, I know, but you get the idea.

Here are Luke Donald, Tom WatsonRetief Goosen, Ernie Els, and Adam Scott, showing us all how a golf swing should be done.

The word around town was that a “wee” one was going to join us.  And for sure, another new born was about to join the party (well, at least in several weeks)!

On this day, I was the observer to a baby shower for Yumi, the mother soon to be.  Hami, sister of Hans and total planner of this event (awesome job Hami!),  invited me to be a part and fly on the wall for this great event. Hami had gained a sister-in-law and soon to become an Aunt, for the first time.

I was excited for her and her family- plus, to be a part.

Hans & Yumi seemed all together, about his new found wealth. But I would have understood if there were some butterflies in his stomach- this “birth thing” being a very big celebratory part of their lives, and all.  Well, at least I would have been, if I was him.

But they were troopers (I could tell).  With great (soon to be) grand parents and support systems, the two will be fab parents! They are for sure a great couple (…and deeply in love, I could tell).

As for the party, it was fab. Everyone enjoyed themselves, much. The other kids who attended were so cute as well! Sooooooooo hyper (I think they were very high on jelly beans..) =D

Hami was fabulous in planning and taking care of the whole shindig. Also, Hami gave Yumi several pieces of her knitting products (from her own knit line of apparel NAMU KNITS), and they were just beautiful.  And if that isn’t enough, Hami is a fabulous pastry chef! Look at them below!

In sum, Yumi received lots of children’s books, towels, toys, a tub, scrubbers, and clothing for the child. Nice, nice.

As fro me, I was smiles those several hours. I was very happy for all involved.

Congrats Yumi!  Congrats Hans!

All the best and hope to see you two and the new one, very soon!  I’m a fan!

PS:  The only regret is that I didn’t get a chance to eat one of the cupcakes Hami had made. Oh well. Better luck next time, eh?  My mistake, I know. Dang.  =D

I carry my camera almost every time I leave my apartment. My favorite camera depends on my mood (makes a big difference) and what kind of photographs I believe I want to take in that outing (this day I had my DSLR with me with my trusty 50mm).

It’s a philosophy (a philosophy many photogs dwell) and a habit which has been drilled in. It’s like when you don’t have your wrist watch on (for those of you who always are used to wearing them). Just feels like something’s missing.

Anyway, yesterday (on my way to Newark) it was one of those days I was very glad to have my camera with me. And it isn’t because there was an abundant amount of subjects I particularly wanted to take images of, but that I would have been very bored.

The photos you see below are ones taken from a very, very, very long traffic halt. It wasn’t overly unpleasant, but I did thank my lucky stars I went to the bathroom prior. It was that long.

See, the images don’t have to have spectacular weight (at least in personal/fun mode). As you can see, these are just items you’d see behind any traffic: barriers, rails, trucks, trailers, tires, bumpers, inside of my car, sky, etc.

But it’s a rolling story. It’s not a very compelling story, but it is a story- snapped & communicated within a 5 image frame. Nothing complicated but a total personal moment in time, explained in ‘paragraphs’, within the 5. No more, no less (because it’s my story). Not clear always mind you. However, we photogs always try our best. =D

Oh, by the last image of the sky, is when I lifted my head up to say to myself, “Finally!”

Then I was on my way to Newark. The Brick City!

Fun, isn’t it? Yep. I agree.
