Amiciness Snaps: Gumamela Photo Set

Gumamela

I can’t help but be drawn to gumamela flowers, especially the rare colored ones like the one we have in our garden. Gumamela, or hibiscus, is common to every neighborhood in the country. It may also be extra popular because of science class. For me, it was during the third grade when our teacher asked us to bring a gumamela to school. It has all the parts of the flower: the male and female parts. It’s perfect for teaching kids about the birds and the bees without them really knowing.🌻

“Yellow is the color of joy.”
I waxed nostalgic a bit when I took these pictures. When I was younger, my siblings and I used to pound gumamelas and add the extract to water to make bubbles. *sighs* Fun and simple times. Back in the day, you have to create your toys to be entertained. Or prepare to spend a long, lazy afternoon watching noontime Mexican telenovelas and Pira-pirasong Pangarap with your grandmother. You got me. I like the latter too.

Anyway, here’s my very first photo set using my new Fujifilm X-T20 16-50mm Kit. I hope you’ll be able to feel the story and the emotions I wanted to convey. 📸

I don’t get the chance to take an OOTD (Outfit of the Day) photo every day, but when I do I make sure to follow these 5 easy steps for taking the #PerfectOOTD.

My OOTD on the streets of Hong Kong
Joke time: Why did the chicken cross the street? To take the perfect OOTD! 😀
