Obviously, I Need You by bigcitydreams Obviously, I Need You by bigcitydreams
But still,
You need me to remind you
Just how much.
I never complain, because I never mind much.
Cold sunrises and humid breezes
Made you happy.
You were always such a pretty contradiction
Yourself.
Time never meant anything to you,
Especially when you were in your
Stupid blissful state of mind.
That always pissed me off.
You always forgot I existed then.
You were already in your own world.
I wanted to scream at you,
Tell you that a perfect utopia didn't exist.
And that you had better started facing the truth.
No matter how much you hated picking up the
Shattered pieces of the things that you
Broke.
:bug:


I was using my 75-300 mm lens, hence the extreme blur because I focused on the sky. I didn't mean for it to turn out like that but it's growing on me.

With that out of the way.. HOLY CRAP. 10 seconds is definitely not enough. I had to run the whole length of my backyard (about 15 metres), climb up a short step ladder and jump up on the fence into position. It took me about 50 different shots before I actually got a half-decent picture. I had to balance it on my air conditioner machine thingy because that was the only thing I could use. On the other side of the fence is a primary school and I actually dropped the umbrella while I was trying to get up in the middle of a photo hahaha. It took me half an hour to get it back over by using a curtain rod -.-
The weather was sooo hot too. I was sweating so much ^^;


Wheew, that was a lot of words.

I honestly wish I had better words to use for telling you that I love this photo, but I don't have, and I guess there is no better feeling than love.
I do believe it would look awesome in a sqaure shape, too, but anyhow, the effect is amazing as well like this

hehe don't worry, i have no cool lighting things either.
this was in my backyard, so the summer sun backed me up.

DIY lighting is always a possibility for me, until i have enough money
to get proper equipment (:
