ABC Dramatisation: Love it / Hate it

There’s a lot of controversy surrounding Path to 9/11. The makers have admitted to the fact that some parts (I guess up to half of it) was ficticious and I’m not really going to discuss it. However I liked the visual quality of the film itself. They must have spent a lot of time on it. I thought the camera work was absolutely fantastic, every emotion of every character was portrayed through the medium of TV. I liked the abstract angles used in NY scenes and Afghanistan. And it really did bring back the shock and fears of that day, and gave us a glimpse of what it might have been like to be someone there or a loved one of someone there.

On that day, it was my cousins wedding (I guess you couldn’t get a more mix of emotions and feelings in one day) and we went through most of the day without knowing. I also remember not knowing how I should have felt and I sincerely hope that something like that (or London) doesn’t happen again.

Can't get enough of flowers

Comments: Since everyone else is uploading pictures of flowers, I thought I’d upload my lame attempt. Comments welcome, it was hard to crop because of the background. Haven’t found a computer with photoshop to adjust levels (I hate this mac, won’t even let me see EXIF info). Focus is a bit too soft. Not as nice as Nick’s…
