another weekend...am supposed to work due to my as built drawings submission dateline. but without plan, i've been kidnapped by my dearest friends for a surprise photography trip...and we didnt even decided to have BBQ, just happened along the way (and we had 6o's style BBQ- we had everything spontaneous, we bought food in Lulu's fujairah, we went to baracuda beach for some booze and ooze, the only thing no pots:o). as am kinda out of my comfort zone lately and bit down, they've done this for me to cheer me up. that's really such a wonderful day i had. hugs to Mr. & Mrs Ali Parker, @Tina & Aram...u guys rox! I do not brought along my other lenses too. with my fix lense, am took portrait pixs. caught off guard x- pression of people that very dear to my heart. to keep them closer.
(note: those pixs that am on it courtesy of ap's shot~ thnx @AliParker)
well, i do love architecture, music, photography and everything about arts and of course...books too. when we were very much young (still do not have our own driving license), my parent made a point for me and my elder brother to visit library every weekend cos where i came from books were really expensive (in those days...you do know what they said about penguins...very rare). heck when i grew up. i do hate library. library just got stuck in 18th century and never move on. when you are in library, it feels like you are in 100 thousands old graveyard, all those cobwebbs, those smells, i say spooky.
but my love for books...still. then, now and forever. never dies. never. now with all the smarter phones, notebooks, flat screens, a, e, i or u,blackberry (mental note: i've never thought in mylife, the word "blackberry" can be used hand-in-hand with the word "torch", very creative!), strawberry, whatever they've called these days, i can have my reading materials anywhere and anytime i want.who would want to be in library?
cineplex...why there isnt bookplex?
why not those bookshops as big as ikea stores, as artsy as modern art galleries, as cool as theme parks, as hip as virgin records, as wild as national parks, with how the world been polluted today, no harm to have some indoor camping sites. open for 24 hours, organising sleep-over, slumber party, with poem & musical recital, bedtime stories, book clubs reunion...with pass-on marshmallows and serving hot chocs...
i say why not bookplex...
why not makes anything associates with books, reading sounds more artsy, fashionable, younger and up-to-date
anyway literature is actually "the art of written works"
when it is regard as an art. it is rebel, revolt and evolve.
who could have blame when everyones nowadays find lady G's and justin B's words are more romantic, mysterious than William Blake's and Kahlil Gibran's words...
