sometimes photography could be as simple as about being close to the nature. i think misma reflects this concept on her photographs really really well. and of course other concepts too. everything is just so beautifully captured, i could spend hours browsing at her old posts.

i love photography, even though i always feel i'm not good enough. i think it has been a while since the last time i took some photos, so i decided to force myself to sit down and just do it, before i ate all those hearty lollies. here are a few shots for much love monday project. i think i enjoy detailed objects photography most, compared to portraits and landscapes photography. what about you?
