a happy day - xandra and simonthephoto 4

it ‘s a happy day. On Monday, Xandra and I went back to the Chinese university of HK  (CUHK) at where we first met long long time ago. Thanks Lawrence for helping me to take the photos — they are absolutely stunning and both Xandra and me love them a lot.

The baby is expected to arrive in around 10 days — very excited !!! So glad that we can put this photo session into action before she arrives.

PS. I think I was too excited on the day, since then, I was very very sick for the last few days. Though I could still work on the backlogs, the fever and muscle pain really killed me.  It ‘s getting better now, it may take 1–2 more days to recover completely.

We broke into took some photos in a lecture hall — this is one of the classroom I spent lots of time for my engineering degree long long time ago. The setting is still the same, but everything is renewed with much nicer AV equipments

    Hi Simon
    當天我是在惶恐的心態下拍照的,hehe,我其實真的有壓力的,因我很怕拍得不好或你們會不滿意,不過很快我便和自已講,今天是幫朋友拍照,不要想那麼多,拍得好不好也算罷,就當是一些生活片段和回憶的記錄就是了;所以雖然起初有些失誤;很快也能平伏到心情了,我想若再有機會和你們一家三口再拍照時,我相信自已應該會更能輕鬆的去拍。
    Simon,多些休息呢!我想這句話用在你我身上都很合適的,身體要緊,家庭要緊!有需要就聯絡我啦,湊B我也很有心得的!hehe!
    祝願你們一家平安。

  7. Hi Lawrence,
    don’t worry, the photos are perfect. I understand the pressure of "taking photo of another photographer", but you ‘re right, this is a RECORD OF LIFE, and I always believe that there is NO PERFECT PICTURE, BUT ONLY PERFECT MOMENT.
    Hi CC, mimi, calvin,
    thanks. Should recovered very soon, my Xandra told me:
    "傷風感冒…睇醫生就七日好,唔睇醫生就一星期好",再過一兩天就一星期了!
