Streets Of Hong Kong

Well, actually, it’s just one street you’ll see here. But having “street of Hong Kong” for my blog title just doesn’t sound right. Haha!

itscamilleco.com2013011613

This was the day my brother, sister and dad left for Manila. It was just my mom and me, roaming the streets of Hong Kong. Before going around Central, we made a not-so-quick pitstop here to take my outfit shots. Oh the pains we took just to get these simple shots! I’ve successfully taught my mom how to shoot with my Nikon dSLR when we first went to Barcelona together for Mango, so it really baffles me why she just can’t seem to get along with my tiny and much more user-friendly Olympus camera. But hey, there is still hope. I’m sure one day–maybe in a month or two, or maybe a year? Gasp, 10 years?! She will probably get the hang of it. Fingers crossed. (God, please heed my call.)

So here are the few decent shots we managed to take. I’m lucky my mom still tries her best even though she’s super confused with my camera all the time. You see my smile here? At the back of my mind, I was probably thinking to myself, “please let this be focused. Please, please, please!”

And then here, I was probably thinking to myself, “quick mom, take the photo before the old couple walks by.”

Then by the time we took this photo, I was probably already thinking, “I give up. There must be at least ONE or TWO shots we can use. Pwede na iyan!” LOL.

    reading this really reminds me of my mom.. she’s not really into techie stuff especially in using cameras.. it would either be out of focus or blurred..

    I know the feeling of having your mom to take pictures… Lol. :) And I noticed, ROMWE all the way Ms. Camille! Hehe. And may I ask how to manage the settings of an Olympus camera (but not like yours,I don’t know what model I have but it’s the cheapest around P5k) to produce kahit 1/4 of how gorgeous and clear your pictures are? ‘Cause I really have difficulty on understanding and make ‘kalikot’ (LOL) to my cam.. :( Thanks Ms. Camille! <3

      Thanks Aerielle! Romwe is so nice kasi :) I’m no experts with camera so I really wouldn’t know. I’ve only used one Olympus camera. Try to check the ISO settings maybe?

    Ganda! Puro ROMWE ah halos hehehe. :p
    Haaay I’m so disappointed with them in their recent giveaway promotions – always finding excuses why they can’t give my prize kahit lahat qualified and winner na ako. Oh well … just airing! Sad :S

    About this outfit naman, super cool! Love the little vintage effect it has hehe. :) Good thing you were still able to capture some shots. Beautiful! :)

    You’re cute and the shots are great, though. Love it how you and your mom came up with this. That’s my dilemma actually. I don’t have anyone to take decent shots of me. :D I’m not teaching my 13-year-old son. But it’s a struggle. Ha ha

    Oi Camille, linda escolha de peças, o look ficou lindo!
    Amo a forma como consegue conversar as cores, texturas e todo o resultado final, parece tão simples e belo, é incrível!!!
    As fotos estão boas, sua mãe se saiu bem mesmo sem intimidade com a câmera.

    gosh. you always look so good in EVERYTHING. tsk. haha. by the way, my friends and I are going to HK this march. Weather forecasts say its gon’ be 16-24 degrees and humid by that time and I really am not sure of what to wear for that kind of weather. Web forums confuse me, :(. D’you have any suggestions on what clothes I could bring with? Are skater skirts and hoodies still appropriate? Thanks!!! ^.^

    This look is one of my favorites!! Super fan kasi ako ng mga ganyang blazer but I haven’t tried that one because I don’t think it looks good on a petite girl like me! hahahaha. :( And the leather skirt is so perfect, nag-blend lahat ng colors :) High five again, Ate! :)

    LOL your mom actually did a pretty good job. If it was my mom, everything will be out of focus in the picture and the picture will just come out all blurry. And not to mention my mom is pretty much blind without her glasses so there’s no way she will see what she is shooting. XD

    Are you ever worried that you dresses or skirt is too short and you’ll expose something? Because I always see you wearing these beautiful dresses where if I was wearing it, I would be praying for no wind to blow.

    I know the feeling when you let your mom take your outfit shot, I’ve done that. haha, good thing your mom knows how to use the camera, so you can use all the shots she took. Mine was a tragic, haha! She doesn’t know how to take a full body shot and the angle itself, but still I love my mom:) hehe, , btw, excited to watch etc. this Sunday, 7:45 pm :) You would be featured together with Laureen &Tricia G right? Can’t wait to see it.:) ♥

    You look so British Chic in this outfit, kinda like a modernized (and more posh version of) My Fair Lady look, haha! :D Props to your Mom for trying though; the photos look good in the end :) Maybe she can practice taking your outfit shots in Manila sometimes with your Olympus camera? Bloggers’ photographers usually get used to taking photos soon enough, haha :P

    hi ms. camille.. now am a fan of yours na.. the first time i saw you was on ig.. and the very first thing i noticed bout you was your gorgeous LEGS.. wow it looks like perfect… never noe that you are a blogger/fashion icon though, but now i noe na..and i am already subscribed to your blog… i am a probinsyana girl, you noe the typical probinsyanan kinda shy, afraid to dress (i mean, we are not the type who dress a lot, for short it’s not our forte) hope in the future you’ll feature a kind of theme that would encourage us to dress comfortably with not so expensive clothes. the type of making ourselves more beautiful, boosting our self esteem..thank you!
