Water Lily Fanatic

One of the best feelings that a photographer could ever feel is when his/her photos get appreciated, voted, and wins a competition. Water Lilies is one of the subjects I like taking photos of.  They have got vibrant,attractive colors that look great in pictures, and I’ve taken hundreds of them. Three of which have received the Best Photo of the Week Award at Pixoto.com.

The weekly award is the most sought after award by photographers who join Pixoto. It’s because it is the only award that has money involved.

One of my recent water lily photo which bagged the Best Photo of the week Award.

Taken with a Canon 550D + 70-300 IS USM Luxury Lens

The competition is always a tight one battling for the weekly award. You win some you lose some. But nonetheless the fun is always there seeing you photos competing with other photos from photographers all over the world.

These are some of my photos that did well but fell short of getting the weekly award.

Kaoseng’s Famous Sunrise

Kaoseng’s famous sunrise, well at least to Filipino photographers in Hatyai Songkla, that is.

Kaoseng is a place in Songkla, which is a hill by the beach and where the sunrise is magnificent.  A lot of Filipino photographer’s would wake up very early in the morning, and take the 45-minute drive to Kaoseng to witness and capture the sunrise.  Their pictures have won various awards in pixoto.com  Pixoto is a worldwide online photography community and competition. It is a melting pot of people who are into photography both professionals and novices,  and people who just love to look at good pictures.  It is also the site to look to if one is planning to purchase pictures for personal or business purposes.

Here are 4 samples of my husband’s photos of Kaoseng Sunrise.

Songkla Zoo Photo Contest Honorary Winner



My husband’s photo of Nancy, an Orangutan “The Nancy Pose” won an honorary prize in Songkla Zoo Photo Contest. He received a certificate and free membership card.  With the card, all four of us can go to any zoo in Thailand free of admission for a year.  You might be wondering how much was the cash prize.  The truth is, there’s none.  But as what my husband said “Mai pen rai” (never mind).  For him, as an amateur photographer and an expat at that, to be chosen is already a great honor.

We are hoping that this will be an annual activity of Songkla Zoo.

We are looking forward for SONGKLA ZOO PHOTO CONTEST 2013!!
