He and She Photography. Wedding photography.

Louis Pang is a professional wedding photographer. His shoots are almost perfect.
However, as compared to the photography site I saw today, He and She Photography, Louis Pang's photography seems to be a little bit too serious (for me,personally.)
I didn't mean that's bad, I just have different feeling towards them. Just do not know why, when I see this site who they also shoot for some weddings and engagements, naturally I think of Louis Pang. Of course I do like Louis Pang's work too! So, there's really no good or bad between them.

But, honestly, after seeing too much of those perfect-photos-with-perfect-colours-perfect-lighting-perfect-photoshopskill-and-perfect-etc., I started to feel... tired? Although perfect means good.
When I see this site, I feel fresh! It feels so casual, more relaxing. Yea, I like the word casual.

The cutest part, for me, is that the photographers themselves, the He and the She is a married couple with a baby (coming soon, I guess). It's like, they bring their love to people, to inpire people. Through the camera lens, they capture the natural smiles and the true happiness with their passion and love :)
It also make us feel closer to the photos, unlike those perfect professional photos, these photos makes us feel so... intimate, so personal, so real.

They describe themselves as this:
"the “he” refers to a fellow named randy, and the “she” a gal named erin.  together, we are he & she photography, a husband and wife photography duo based out of orange county, california.

we strive to turn your love into art. it might sound corny, but it’s true! it’s our passion. our photography style can best be described as photojournalism meets quirky fashion photography. we are very influenced by the aesthetics of fashion photography, yet our unobtrusive approach enables us to create a documentary of your wedding from an insider’s perspective. i suppose you could call our style “natural light-lifestyle-fashion-photojournalism.” try saying that five times fast :)"

See, so cute :D

Ferran Adria

I want to introduce you to Ferran Adria. Deemed the worlds greatest chef at the world greatest restaurant. Ferran uses his extraordinary creativity and courage to present his "art" to his guests. at his restaurant "ElBulli", the guests doesnt have a menu. but they are served about 28 to 35 dishes carefully assembled by the team at ElBulli. The philosophy of the restaurant is to let people have an emotional response to the food. Ferran treats a humble pear just as he treats expensive caviar. His team always shares their new discoveries and works hard with open ideas at their "experiment lab", which really looks like a lab:
they even have special signs and codes to categorize their ingredients. 
I just admire how much dedication these people have put into the subject they pursue. 

more about Ferran Adria:
hope you enjoy this documentary where my Anthony Bourdain (one of my most favourite celeb/ author chef) decodes Ferran Adria

enjoy~!  :D

In A Better World.

I went for this movie alone that day. I knew it's an Oscar winner for best foreign language film. I knew it would be great. But, honestly, I didn't have too much of expectation before watching it. Really, and sorry to say that, I was just thinking to kill some time instead of wondering around the mall alone.

However, it is really good. At least it's more than what I've expected (alright, I didn't have much expectation -___-) Although for me it's not the Oscar level, but well, it is good. Indeed, it won Oscar.
There are scenes touched my heart deeply, just like how the book - The Kite Runner - did. I had many 'omg' and 'shit shit shit' between the film (of course it's me mumbling in my mind).

Anyway, you should watch it. I will let you to interpret the film yourself.
Worth watching.
