About Me

2013 is the year when I am embarking on this new challenge, a photo a day (well hmm, maybe two), for 365 days.

I am a part time perfectionist who love taking photos, as well as looking at photos. So this will be a learning journey for me, to know more about my camera, to learn new technique, and who knows, I might find my style along the way.

As modern day nomads, my family and I have been moving countries for the past 16 years. In this 7th country on the list, I hope I can look into things from different eyes, different perspective.

Please drop by, have a look and say hello…

  1. Good luck. Once you start posting, its very addictive to keep posting 🙂

  2. You are absolutely right, Benjamin. I know one day I might hit that lowest point, but at the moment am still super excited. Thank’s for dropping by and for starting following me. Cheers.

  3. Thanks for stopping by my blog Yasmine. I admire your project 365, I also realise the dedication it requires. I am participating in a 52 week challenge, and god know even that can be difficult at times 🙂

    • You have an inspiring blog, Ausaf. Yes, this project is quite challenging for me, as not only I just started learning photography, I am even newer to the world of blogging (and I am, should I say, technically challenged ;-))

      • Hey thanks Yasmine 🙂
        If you say you have just started photography, I believe project 365 could be one of the most wonderful things you could have done now. Nothing improves skill more than taking the pictures 🙂
        I am following your blog now and shall look forward to your posts. Stay blessed!

    Your snapshots are beautiful, Tante! Keep doing what you do so well and good luck on your project. Have fun 🙂

  5. Thanks for visiting my blog, Yasmine. You have my utmost respect and admiration for embarking on Project 365. My blog is still new and I only just decided to start a Project 52 to give my blog some direction and consistency (and more importantly, to instill self-discipline!). Did not want to set myself up for failure so chose Project 52 to start with. Perhaps after that I will be ready for Project 365. I wish you all the best in your project and I look forward to seeing your progress. 🙂

    • Thank you Evon. It was a good friend who inspired me to do this project. And as you said, it’s a good way to discipline myself with photography, as I tend to take pictures only when there’s occasion or event. I have to say I am enjoying it so far, as I haven’t hit the wall yet :-). Good luck with your ’52 and let’s support each other :-)…

      • Yes, I’m all for supporting each other, Yasmine. That’s why I followed your blog – to motivate and inspire myself when I get lazy. 🙂 My first post for Project 52 is scheduled for tomorrow and will subsequently be published every Friday.

  9. Such a great idea. Love the pictures. Thanks for dropping by my site!

  10. What are some of the pros and cons to living this nomadic life? Do you have a blog posting about this you can refer me to?

    • Unfortunately I can’t refer you to any post, as I just started blogging. Generally I would say that the immersion to different culture every 2 years or so make us more flexible and adaptable. Our kids have became the third culture kids, who have never lived in any countries where my husband and I came from. This can be seen as upside or downside, depends on how you view it (I chose to see it as a positive aspect :-))…

  11. Hi there, I have nominated your great blog for the Best Moment Award! You are under no pressure or obligation to accept, but if you would like to accept and pass it on, please visit this link:

  12. Hello there. Just found your blog whilst looking to purchase a new camera. I currently have the Canon G12 and I am very pleased with it. Your blog is very good and I shall follow with interest. Are you pleased with your camera?

    • Hi Bob. Unfortunately I can’t really help you. Yes I do have that camera, but hardly use it, as up to now I’m too lazy to learn how to, haha, I know I know I should. I’m still more comfortable in using my 50D. Thank you for following my blog. Happy to know that you enjoy it 🙂

  13. Yasmine, I have nominated you for the The “One Lovely Blog” Award.
    You can find the information on the below link if you choose to accept the award.
    Thanks for sharing your blog, I always enjoy it and think that it certainly deserves this recognition.


  14. Keep up the good work!! Will be keeping an eye out on yr posting and also learn a thing or two from you. =)

  15. Really like the photographs 🙂

  16. So why do you take pictures Yasmine?

    • I think started as holiday snippets during holiday during my younger years. After becoming a mom, it also serves as documentary purposes, as well as channeling the artsy part of me, by starting noticing the set, natural lighting, etc. But now, halfway through my 365 project, I realized that there’s always beauty in everything. I mean literally, in everything, no matter how ‘insignificant’, dirty, rusty, unorganized something (or nothing?) is. Thank’s for visiting, Akshay :-)…

  19. Hello Yasmine…

    So nice to find your beautiful blog here…

    Really enjoyed the variety of images 🙂

    Have a great time 🙂

  20. You have a very nice blog! And lived in so many places! How is your photography challenge going along?

    Warm regards,

    • Hi Tieme, thank you for regularly dropping by my site. The challenge is getting more challenging in the sense of finding, or making the time. It seems harder and harder to make the time to carry, to set the camera and shoot, everyday. Nowadays, it seems I carry my phone more often than my camera. Maybe, maybe, I’m thinking of doing it next year solely with my phone. But I have not decided yet. Guess I still have plenty of time to think it through 🙂

      • Hi Yasmine,

        Thank you and you’re welcome! I can imagine that it is hard to keep it up. Using your phone is great for photography too! Life is (hopefully) long enough to capture more photographs!

        Happy weekend!
