Pass It Forward: 3 Shutterbugs

Friday, 24 August 2012
I'm always drawn to beautifully composed images. I've been a shutterbug for a decade now. I was delighted to discover several women in the blogosphere who are just as excited about photography as I am. It's a pleasure to not talk about gadgets for a change and our discussions are often concentrated on creating images that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also ones that evoke emotions.



Malou of 33 Avenue




My pint sized friend, Malou is not only a stylish mom, she's also photography enthusiast who can often be found with her Leica slung across her body while carrying a Birkin. We met via our love for Hermes bags years ago and now tries to catch up whenever she's in London. She currently resides in Zurich but this nomadic lady has lived in various countries and speaks 5 languages. I guess she can add French to the list as she has just returned from a 3 month stint in Paris. She has my admiration for embarking on her remarkable journey to live her dream in Paris along with her toddler.





QY of Q9Y8






QY is another lady who is afflicted with the Hermes addiction. Isn't it interesting how our love for designer bags can engage a huge international community of women from all corners of the world? It was QY who first taught me to photograph still outfit pictures. She's a young mom of 1 who works in the I.T industry. She originally came from China but has lived in Germany for many years now.





Grace of A Life Unhurried





Let's talk about 2 degrees of separation here. I live in a small town with a population of 50 000 on a lucky day. What are the odds of finding a fellow immigrant, blogger and shutterbug who literally lives a mere 5 minute stroll from my place? In fact, it was Grace who found me through another friend, Alice Gao of Lingered Upon  whom I featured back in July. Grace is a Filipina Canadian who has settled down in England along with her husband. She's a food lover. Her blog is packed with incredibly healthy recipes and stunning photographs, a feast for the eyes and tummy.

  6. Marlene, you are too kind. Thank you. I must, however, make a correction so as not to mislead anyone. I'm not a vegetarian as I enjoy eating seafood, (but I avoid everything else including eggs and dairy). :) I appreciate your Pass It Forward posts. Thanks for introducing all these lovely bloggers!

  13. How lovely that you and Grace can meet, everyday if you wanted! Do you meet up often? I'm so thankful for the three ladies who live in Canberra that I get to meet often (though no as often as I would like!) I was instantly drawn to Grace's image, I love how she presents her photos...
