"Life always "screws" you at the moment you least expected."
I have read this line numerous times before, and ever since I have always wondered if it is true, until very recently. I have always believed this line has a negative relation. Well, life did screw me up but it was in a very positive sense. It was when I discovered a new passion in my life. It is something really popular these days, but indeed photography is really amazing!
Facebook has been a very important tool to promote photography lately, whether new photographers, model competition or people just trying to get some "likes" or "comments". However in my case, it took birth through a milestone anniversary being celebrated by the head company where I am currently employed, Terra. The latter is celebrating its 175th birthday this year and on this occasion it has launched a photography competition for all employees! Well, believe me or not, it created a real buzz in the company and everyone was looking for angles, funnily taking pose as professional photographers! This competition has indeed created a positively joyful and friendly atmosphere within the company.
Hereafter, together with a couple of friends, we decided to venture out together and take our pictures, just to increase the fun surrounding this competition. Hence we scrutinized the whole northern part of the island such as Belle Vue Mauricia, Calebasses, La Cuvette, Montagne Longue, La Nicoliere, Plaine des Papayes, amongst others. It was thrilling to have discovered this new passion. It was even more exciting to explore it. And it was a pure joy to experience it together with a bunch of amazing friends. So thanks to you guys Thierry, Hemant, Aruna and Shrawan.
Here are a couple of pictures I have taken during the course of the whole competition. For obvious reasons, I am not uploading those I sent for the competition. Along with it, Happy 175th anniversary Terra. Thank you for involving all of us in this amazing series of activities in order to celebrate this wonderful milestone!
I hope you enjoy it :)
As I am writing this article, it leaves me wonder.. Is it the birth of a new passion, or the end of a newly found passion? That is the question :)
