Are you a fan of simon.the.photo on Facebook?

When I found that we could establish a fan page on facebook, I created one just for fun in July, and I never thought that I could have a “fan” … …

It ‘s so amazing that my facebook page have over 430 fans after two months (as of today), this is such a big number that I don’t think I deserve it.

Talking about fan, I ‘d love to introduce Natalie and Arthur, they are definitely the No. fan 1 of me.  When I had their e-session last month, I found out that Natalie has a collections of photos from this blog. She downloaded her favorite images (with comments and notes), print them out and put them in a very organized box file. With such a couple that loves my photos so much, it gave me lot of energy and inspiration on their photo day

date: 18 sept, 2008
locations: Wetland Park, Shek O, Central (night photo)

my fav photo of the day – it ‘s 7:00 pm and the sky was almost completely dark.
Thanks Natalie and Arthur for their willingness to stay so late on the beach to make it happen. And thank you my assistant Canly for helping on the lighting, she didn’t plan to get into the water, but she was willing to get completely wet finally (even she didn’t have any extra clothes to change) !!!!

Natalie suddenly said she love this photo which she had seen on my blog before, but it was too late and it was very dark … so I had to call my friends from Mars and asked them to fly a spaceship here to throw some light on them 🙂

    Simon. You are a big big Star. You make us like stars but you are a star yourself. You shine us all, from head to toes, as if the light radiates from us all. Originally, we are all pale, dull, breathless, quiet and shy. With you, we suddenly become adorably red on our faces. With you, we are energetic enough to make various poses for eighteen hours. With you, we inhale fresh air from the mother nature and forget about the dirt in the city. With you, we yell loudly as if nobody is around and laugh like a monkey. With you, we would do anything that we would not dare to do on our own, like getting wet on a beach with a write dress put on while pairs of eyes were searching on us. Once in a life time, we could be a star on this kind of big day. Throughout your life, you would twinkle with lots of joy.

  25. HI Arthur,
    Always love your long message, long email, long SMS, like a poem … … 
    BTW, email a few photos, which one you ‘d like to choose as the backdrop, I can email you the high resolution file then.
    For the rest of the photos, it ‘d be ready around mid Nov.
