    Default Serendipity

    When shooting casual, unthemed shots, this is the main style of photography?

    in case u dunno what the above means, it's "taiko" in SGspeak...

    Just like the ones I used to know~"

    Hi.

    Talking about me?

    Anyway the actual meaning from www.dictionary.com is :

    1) The faculty of making fortunate discoveries by accident.
    2) The fact or occurrence of such discoveries.
    3) An instance of making such a discovery.

    You are right about "taiko" in Singlish. A "taiko" with luck and good result.

    Me getting into photography is "taiko" occurence.

    And taking good photos alot of time depend on "taiko". I don't think there are alot of photgraphers can guarantee that every shots are great. Especially from film.

    So i call myself "serendipity".

    haha it means fortunate accident.. which is ahem how I take my shots too

    I was shooting some top view of two saplings in a field... some symmetrical abstract shot... then two pigeons flew across, casting a nice pair balance and their paired shadows... hope it's serendipitous!
