Feature Post: The Amateur-Photographer (danywithdragons)

A bit of natural talent can go a long way with some time and passion, as proven to me by one of the most random yet intelligent and original people I know (aka my sister). Today marks my very first feature post about the talents and inspriations that surround me from day to day and for this very special occasion, I would like to introduce you to the one and only danywithdragons, or as you may have guessed, my baby sister.
As merely a high school student, danywithdragons utilizes photography as a way of expression throughout her explorations and discoveries in this journey we call life. With her unique eye, danywithdragons captures not only a beautiful scenery, but maintains the sense of nostalgia, tranquility, and comfort in each photo, transporting viewers into another place and time. With each photo, the viewer can almost feel that light breeze or hear and feel the rattling on the train, and take a momentary time travel back to the good old times.
This self-proclaimed amateur-photographer has barely crossed the starting line. Who knows what she'll bring forth in the future?

"I got a new phone that had a really good camera and I began taking random pictures. This soon became a hobby because all of them would turn out really well. "
"Right now, it's just a small hobby. I don't see myself doing much with it, but who knows?"

"Lately, I've been interested in incorporating shapes and lines. If you look at my recent photos, you can see that there's often some sort of line running through."

"I don't like to brag, but I'm a pretty hard core Netflix binge-watcher."

A true one-of-a-kind.

今日は用事でOpéraの方に行ってきました。いつもならちょっと早く出て、散歩しながら行こうかなとも思うのですが、今日はたまたま大雨。傘の上手な使い方をいまいち理解していないというか下手なわたしは、正直さしていてあまり意味がなかった様な気がします。笑 さすがに歩くのはちょっと大変だなと思ったので、今回はメトロⓂ️を使うことにしました。 帰りにも少しだけ入ったGalerie Lafayetteを一周してきました。高級ブランドがたくさんあり、さすがに買い物はできませんでしたが、見ているだけでも楽しい空間でした。靴のコーナーを撮り忘れてしまったことがちょっと悔しいです。ちょっと変わった形や色のものからクラシックな形のものまでたくさんあって、モール全体をわたしのウォークインクローゼットにしたいくらいでした。

前回入れなかったユニクロ。 ちょ〜オシャレでした。 お店のレイアウト、ディスプレー全てがなんだか高級感たっぷりでした。 値段も日本より少し高め?のような気もしました。


Exploring Paris Solo

One of the reasons why I really love Paris is that it's a great place to be for soloist like me. I prefer wandering alone at my own pace, although having company is great as well. Either way, exploring a city alone has really allowed me to get in touch with myself and make my own discoveries and meet new people. It was just one of those days when my insides were nudging me to get out and that is exactly what I did.
I've always wanted to brunch at Angelina and thought, why not just go? I took a trip down to Rue Rivoli and ordered the brunch best. Aaaaa the famous chocolat chaud was just as smooth and decadent as I had heard it was. It was like drinking a melted chocolate bar.

The Post I Forgot to Upload Last Week

I was near Opera today for a commitment and while I would usually leave a little early so that I could walk to my destination, I decided otherwise when I saw that it was pouring rain. I took the Metro for the first time in a while. I obviously brought an umbrella with me but I always question whether I need it or not since I somehow get wet anyways. I stopped by Galerie Lafayette to look around. All the high end products are not too friendly for my budget but the mall is like one big art exhibit that you can enjoy just strolling around in.

Stepped into the UNIQLO that I was too sccared to walk into last time and was in awe at how chic everything looked. There was a totally different atmosphere to the ones I am used to in Japan. I think the prices were also a tad bit higher.

Talk soon!
