a quick update + a visual one as well …

.

of what happens when Penelope is asked to ‘cover’ an event. :D

.

.
Oh well, its truly not my fault that these aren’t your typical event shots. See the brain, neurons, camera and finger just can’t go in-sync. No buttons can be depressed when facing groups of people. crowd. mulling around. sitting around. eating. chatting. on a podium. with hundreds of spectators looking. behind a rostrum.

.

i just don’t get events.
speeches . parades . rallies . sports
i don’t get events.
i don’t photograph events.

.

.

But you know about the ‘never say NEVER‘ curse?
well…

.

I found myself obliging Shabs (yet again! <- said in a very nice way) with IAMD 2009. And this was truly more than obliging. It was a sacrifice! really. I ‘abandoned’ mom prematurely at a time where she needs all the attention and support. I wrapped myself up head-to-toe (event was held in a mosque that requires ladies to be covered up all so thoroughly). I sped – got stopped – fined – flirted my way out of it – escorted to the mosque – not a bad looking cop in ever so tight white tights – I swear I wasn’t looking! and imagining. Sheesh…

.
I don’t have the equipment(s) for events photography.
.

Since I don’t photograph events, why get expensive gadgets? So I don’t have the ‘tools’ hence I can’t take events.

YES! I am fast discovering how quickly this is becoming a chicken-and-egg story. Like most stories in life.

But regardless of the occasion and/or location, classic Penelope bloopers is sure to be there… lurking around and waiting for the right moment to spring.

yeerrrsssSSSSSHHHHH!

I actually scrolled my name across their logo and cheekily (it was cute at that spur of the moment ok??!?) used the “P” of my Plus as the “P” for “Penelope! … only to discover that the signing/petiton/authograph was meant for VIPs and VVIPs like Marina Mahathir. :D

.
.
plus, I stalked this little guy for 20 minutes before he let out an embarrassingly loud wail and ran, occasionally turning back and pointing the accusatory finger at the perpetrator (me)!
