capturing the blue hour -twilight

i have truly fallen in love with the blue hour, which is between half-an-hour to an hour after sunset
....i could not count how many times i gave a sigh and stood in awe at the beauty that this moment has given the world...i thank the Creator for this moment...

The blue hour comes from the French expression l'heure bleue, which refers to the period of twilight each morning and evening where there is neither full daylight nor complete darkness. The time is considered special because of the quality of the light at this time of day. --wikipedia

Kim is Eighteen - isn't she?

Kim has turned eighteen, and as her mother, I still could not believe how fast she has grown! She was looking forward to that day where she prepared for a couple of celebrations, though low-key in both... in this one she spent with family and relatives, while her friends organized a karaoke party on the following weekend....my mother baked a beautiful double-layered mud cake that was simply soooo delicious that one just could not get enough of it, her own recipe includes almond meal as one of the ingredients...simply finger-lickin!
my dear darling Kim, many many happy returns of the day and may you be blessed throughout with a happy and fruitful life!

Sunita - in a Sari

It was wonderful having the chance to photograph Sunita, her spontaneous and youthful personality makes her companionship such a delight. Sunita is from Nepal living in Melbourne.

I just love the way she handles herself in a sari....

Rolling back to winter - walking along St. Kilda Rd in spring

This album was taken last Thursday, 8 Sept to be exact...I was looking forward to a sunny, cool spring...but instead Melbourne was faced with a cold front, the day was even colder than I imagined, it even rained in the morning. After work/school, my son and I went to the city supposedly to meet my husband and one of my daughters as both were heading towards the city then...at that moment, the rain had stopped but chilly it was! Nevertheless I brought my camera, just in case. Well, it wasn't so bad after all, we walked towards the National Art Gallery and I was pleased that the sun was setting beautifully along the southbank....Thanks God, it's Thursday (TGIT)...
Ah, Melbourne and its four seasons in a day!
