Lights and Shadows

hubby has always been into photography and i must say, he’s got talent!

his equipment started with a digital camera upgraded into a DSLR. various lenses were acquired and now, its flash that he’s crazy about.

ive never liked the camera flash because, well, i prefer warm lighting in my photos. but when i saw what strobes, and creativity could do, i was amazed!

i never knew lights and shadows could be so beautiful in photographs

but its all very complicated, the angles and lighting and other technical equipment…

…i think ill stick with my macro shots and let him take care of the strobes

at-home-movie night

weekends are usually date days for hubby and i.  this satisfies my obsessive need to plan and keeps hubby happy because i dont agitate.

because im supposed to lie low for the last time this month, we i thought of an at-home-movie night and bought one of our more favorite snacks to accompany us and our gurgley tummies.

this was actually an impulsive buy when i went to purchase some coffee beans and found a couple of these on their rack.

the sales lady said it just arrived from who knows where, but i didnt need much to convince me to get a bag.

“its for hubby”, i reasoned.

ok now back to our movie night…HBO asia proudly presents…

sweeney-poster

we were not able to watch this film on the big screen because hubby is less than enthusiastic to watch anything with singing as part of the screenplay.

this thought makes me laugh because it reminds me of the time i finally got him to watch cine europa with me and i chose a french film

umbrellas-of-cherbourg

which turned out to be a movie with the whole script sung! hahaha!  he was so bored but i loved the film!

and so when i announced that our at-home-movie-night was going to feature Sweeney Todd, he was a little disheartened

but weighing the odds of not tasting these crunchy rinds

he opted to satisfy my fancy … mental note: check BP! (hehehe!)

tim burton has made some very interesting films.

big fish is one my favorite so far, well, because it has a nostalgic memory attached to it, a christmas my sister and i spent with my then future hubby …

charlie-poster11
charlie and the chocolate factory is another one.  i saw the original 1971 film which i loved.  i kept describing the story line to hubby (he does not read books) until i thought that he was thinking i was cuckoo with my imagination. then finally burton proved i was sane.

most of tim burtons films are products of a great imagination, mostly interestingly odd stories given a brilliant twist and so, i have high expectations of the demon barber of fleet street

and hubby has greater expectations of porky…

time together makes such happy memories!
