The concept is just want to express my life, like a journey stepping on the colourful tiles on the floor, and what I stepped on will be what the things I am facing or feelings..
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nōtan is a Japanese design concept involving the play and placement of light and dark next to the other in art and imagery. This use of light and dark translates shape and form into flat shapes on a two-dimensional surface. Nōtan is traditionally presented in paint, ink, or cut paper, but it is relevant to a host of modern day image-making techniques, such as lithography in printmaking, and rotoscoping in animation.
Today why I introduce about this is because I think we all can use this to apply in our photography when taking photos of the object that we want to focus on.
Notan is about placement of dark and light, in colours, in shade and etc..So in order to take a good photo that can greatly/obviously shown what or who is the main character in this photo.. you need to learn to play around with contrast or dark and light to lead the viewer's eye to your main subject.
Although I haven't really adapt this idea and apply it fully.. but I really think its useful to share with you all.
Other than that, I also tried to play with foucus the details on the snail and blur the background with the lens focus. But maybe I just noob, so din really feel that I got a perfect shot.
I hope next time can get better shots.. Comments and Critiques are greatly welcome. Thank you =)

My class lecturer last Thursday brought us a trip to Pulau Meranti to visit a Batik shop to let us experience batik before we start our assignment which related to batik. So that day my classmates and I went, and paid 60 ringgit for it =.= include the bus fee and lunch and the price for the canvas for us to learn batik on the spot.
For more details about this batik trip can check here

Black, white , grey
I wonder why the sky is grey
Dark, bright, dull
I wonder why I purposely make you dull
Come come, let the wind blow
Blow away the dust in your eyes.
I will paint your world red, green, blue.
Nothing much to elaborate but just normal practises of my phtoography skill last time. Will try to find time to post sth useful later.

Wake up in the morning, gazing at the sky, checking the weather, don't wanna get a dull weather
seeing the buildings and sky through the window, wishing to go out and have fun
and i came to here, a garden, a playground... gazing at the sky again... guess I am dreaming
looked around and saw the tiny flowers that seldom people will admire the tiny
only realized I already outside the cage, feeling so fresh
I wish i can have more time at here, the playground, to "play"
to play anything here, record every moment, thing creatively.
but time is always that cruel, and weather will never always good
time flies and evening have arrived
*note: pictures above is done with slow shutter speed and with flash effect. you can try out too =)
But the night still young, so I still wanna enjoy the colourful moments till night ends
End.. LOLZ i simply wrote like a story.. but doesn't really flow pretty well together.. haha
enjoy the photos. But I really wish I can have more time to...
