Home Improvements

>> February 18, 2014

It's been 4 1/2 months now since I moved here and believe it or not, I still feel quite unsettled. The house is basically complete with everything we need. But I feel like it still lack some homey touch to it. I've been spending quite some time moving furnishings around, placing decorative items on surfaces, experimenting what would look good in the space we have. It's challenging to decorate - aside from the fact that I don't particularly excel in interior design (other way of saying I have poor taste in that aspect) - this place is way bigger than my condo back in Makati - so much space I feel like I must fill in.

I finally had a chance to hang the photos I printed on canvas on December. I actually thought it's big enough for my plans on our wall, but apparently it still feels small. Nevertheless, I don't think I can afford at the moment to print this in a real big blow up canvas all over again as I find printing services here (good ones) quite pricey! So I guess at this point, I have to live with what I have.

Took these photos in Boracay Island, Philippines in 2009. This sunset series is my most favorite series of all the sunset photos I've ever taken. I feel accomplished that I finally got it printed - and hung.
It does look small. I'm sure it would look way better if it was bigger, but too late for that. 

This is what the side wall looks like. The scratching post on the wall is a must if we want to spare our shelf from cat scratches. The little grass plant under is a cat grass. It's completely destroyed now.
I've also found myself in love with succulents and cacti. I want to fill our house with it.
And of course, 2 out of 6 of my lovies - Lottie and Pansie.

It's a beautiful space, Marvie... with the photos hanging on the wall!

I work and live at night time. I am a person deprived of natural light. I rarely cook in the morning as I'm almost always asleep, else busy with house chores. As much as I love natural light in my photography, I'm afraid I don't usually have that luxury, unless I sacrifice my sleep, or make an effort to stay up longer during the day to do a cooking + photo session. So I depend on my flash, and sometimes, available light from my fluorescent bulbs. Although, in my opinion, nothing beats the natural light, I am, so far, satisfied with my shots using my flash that I learned to love.

I always look forward to the weekends for some sunlight.
