As most of you know I have been doing the 100happydays challenge on Instagram (@dkwaye) and last Tuesday… I COMPLETED IT! Why did it take me so long to tell you on this blog? Well, you know, schedules… and VLOG:
In which I explain everything about my experience with the challenge and in which I have been able to compile all the 100 photos for your visual pleasure! 🙂
But if you want to see all the images at your own pace, there’s always my instagram 😉
Cheers and stay positive!

Yesterday I decided to give candid street photography a go. I was going to be in the capital city anyway, so I thought, why not? My adventurous mind was getting all thrilled at the thought that I was indeed going to be alone, since the friend I’d asked to come with me wasn’t free, but reason warned me not to be too crazy so I opted for a safe area – a tourist one!
Here’s the main street of Le Caudan Waterfront, where I chose to do candid street photography for the first time, all by myself:
Yes I know. Colourful umbrellas ♥
So I put on my hat, wore Candy (my camera) around my neck and pretended to be a tourist! I even spoke English (we usually speak French), stared around as if I’ve never been there (although I’ve been a thousand times since I was born), smiled… and followed the crowd, feigning to take shots of the place when in fact I was shooting… the people themselves.

All right, no ‘weekly photo challenge’ anymore; this time, this week, the Daily Post decided to host a slightly different challenge: the Phoneography Challenge! And this week’s theme is My Neighborhood…
All the photos are taken from my roof…
Can you see the little red house on an island? It’s famous around the whole country for being The Red House 🙂 I’m proud to be living just in front of it!

Hey everyone, I’m back! 🙂
Today I’m going to share with you something I do a lot when I stay at a hotel: I play with food! Well, not that kind of playing, but I like to just be creative with the presentation of my food in my plate. I usually do this mainly for desserts and breakfast. And desserts especially when there’s a chocolate fountain! (which we had this year!)
Therefore, simply scroll down and enjoy:

This week’s theme is beyond.
And here’s my photographic interpretation:
This photo has been taken from my roof 😛

Today, I’d like to share something special to you. I’m sorry if I’m missing the Weekly Photo Challenges – they’ll come a little late.
It’s Christmas time and every in the world, people are gathering within their family, among their friends, buying gifts, giving and receiving them, preparing Christmas dinner, and most of all, putting up the Christmas tree.

Anyone ever saw an Angry Birds inspired birthday cake? Ever ate one?

We are all photographers now. Within a world that is increasingly visual, when every person has a pocket holding a camera that happens to also be a phone, we are all just ten seconds or less away from being our own version of paparazzi. And we tend to think this is all quite normal, don’t we?
Because it is – normal, that is. But let’s imagine you want your photos to be more than normal. How do you shoot pictures, even with a simple smart phone, that are extraordinary?
If that is you, I suggest first that you think about what kind of photographer you would like to be. Some say it is about being a silent and objective observer – unobtrusively recording whatever it is that is going on at the moment. This is when you are a photojournalist, which plays an important role in how we perceive the world around us. The most talented photojournalists can recognize visual news, which might be the significance of a melting glacier, the smile on the face of an old woman or the drama of a child running out of a burning building. Your ability to capture those things requires command of your camera as well as being in the right place at the right time – and ready to shoot.
A professional photographer quite often gets much more involved in constructing the shot and using the technology of the camera to accomplish certain things. Let’s break that down into three pieces, things that even an amateur photographer could learn (learn, perhaps, as they are looking at photography schools as a possible educational pursuit):

Hello dear readers! As you’re reading this I would have pressed the ‘publish’ button for the 200th time since An Evil Nymph was born! Yeah! 🙂
I did a special post for my 100th post, so why not for the 200th one? For those who have been following me for a while, you might have read it: My Writing Mistakes [Special 100th post]. Because it was entirely on writing, I’d like to approach my 200th post differently: with pictures!
I was fooling around with my phone [camera + photo editor] instead of doing my homework during the weekend… (don’t worry, the work was done in the end) and I’d like to share some of them today.
