Even with the increasing number of friends who have DSLRs, I had not considered jumping into the bandwagon. I just wanted something that would fit into my pocket. I was contented with the photo quality of Sony DSC-TX5. Well, except for the night shots. But since I joined Project 365, I have come to realize that there are a lot things that I want to try but my camera just can’t. While I don’t have the means to get myself a DSLR, I am learning more tricks on how to make my photos a lot better with Gimp!
Here are some of my experiments which I submitted at Project 365.

After adjusting color saturation and brightness:
Gimp and all the other free photo editor rock!
It’s been more than a month since I joined Project 365. I admit I find it hard to produce a photo daily. For one, I don’t go out often. I’m not that creative either. I don’t want to stop at having done 10% of my target so at times, I grab anything, position it and snap my camera away.
But this one has become a favorite:
D.I.E. – Data Interface Operability. It is one of my tasks that is due end of this month. When I looked at this note again, it cracked me up. Seemed like someone is threatening me.
Here I am again, starting to do something that I can’t finish. This is even harder than the weekly memes. Seems impossible for me but I want to keep a daily journal and at the same time improve my skills at taking photos. We’ll see how this one goes. I hope I won’t get bored.
Living alone becomes too boring at times. I do have housemates but we prepare meals separately. I’m not good at cooking and I have long lost my drive to improve it. On work days, I usually eat a heavy lunch at the food court near the office and for dinner, I go to the food court near my place.
On weekends, I’m usually too lazy to go out so I just order my food online. It’s either KFC, Pizza Hut, or Mc Donald’s. I hope Mc Donald’s would someday reward me for my loyalty and this photo.
I’ve got a bad feeling that I won’t be able to complete the Project 365.
