Street: Lesson 2 Establishing Shots

On my mind is how to set a scene with an establishing shot, usually a very wide angle capture of a scene, designed to show the audience where the action is taking place.

How to make it interesting?  After all, there really isn’t much going on.  Which then leads me to thinking about why everything has to have action, has to have a point of interest.  Is it not good enough to just be; calm, serene, with absolutely nothing much going on.   I continue to struggle with this.

Share Your World: a Singaporean Nightscape

The Marina Bay area is stunning at night.  Loving Husband and I had a stroll on the promenade on Saturday while waiting for Darling Daughters who were at the Esplanade: Theatres by the Bay, watching the Stuttgart Ballet’s Romeo & Juliet.  It was a balmy evening, rather festive with cyclists, pedestrians & live music from an al fresco cafe, enlivening our walk.

100% Chocolate

Loving Husband & Older Daughter love dark chocolate, even the very bitter 100%. Younger Daughter and I prefer ours much sweeter and perhaps, milkier.

In considering where bitter fits in my life, I think our taste buds have it right: sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and for the new gourmand, umami.  It all contributes to our experience of food, and in a larger sense, of the world around us.  It is about finding the right balance, the right combination, the right amount.
