In Sweden saffron is one of the main Christmas ingredients. Most commonly use is the ‘lussekattten’, a regular wheat dough with saffron but where the shape of the bun is the characteristic ‘8’. Saffron is very expensive per kilogram but still pretty cheap as flavor & colorist, given the small amount that is use. Here I have instead made in the shape of a ‘cupcake’, freshly baked and magically good! Eat as it is or with a dollop of jam and cream. The photo was taken using studio flash, main light from above and behind and fill-flash from back-right. The red and green in the background to get some Christmas feel.

These pastries simply taste great. Made with a brownie with caramel and a chocolate dome on top, these small treats can embellish any “Swedish fika”. Caramel and chocolate are a perfect combination. The caramel melts in your mouth and because they are spiked with a little hazelnut liqueur, they leave a lovely nutty flavor in the mouth. The photo was taken using studio flash, main light from above and behind and fill-flash from right. Time was spent on the lightning to make the chocolate dome shape visible.

This photo sums up why I love doing what I do. Just around the corner from my house is the perfect section of downhill road just made for downhill skateboarding. Recently I’ve taken to action photography, new camera and amazing new things to try with it, and allowing me selective or Monochrome shots. The other thing I need to mention is the talented skater who loves doing this downhill kind of madness. We talk about what sort of runs he’s going to do, and I setup down the hill and do what I do with the camera. I need to point out how aware of traffic we need to be when we do this kind of photography. I feel like each time I take photos like this, at the end of it I’m always thinking afterwards, could I of done this way or try doing this.. And as always trying to think up better ways to get the best photos.

Photography has always been in the background, just that his life got in the way. He has taken it up full-time, as life allows him time with photography, his family and his daughters love to pose, be part of what he does. He finds that he prefers capturing life as it happens, not posing for it.

I woke up early that morning to go explore the Sunda Kelapa Port in West Java. The day dawned hot, humid, and dusty. I spent the morning walking, exploring, and generally just amazed at the port side workers going about the day. After a while, I came across this traditional canoe boatman. I spent a good 15 minutes chit chatting with him about his day at this port. This is a photograph of him for me to remember him by.

Award Score: 62 (Value 10, Clarity 10, Composition 18, Style 12, Skill 12)
Photo of the Day Award Category: Portraiture Photography
Photograph Location: Sunda Kelapa Port, Jakarta, West Java, Indonesia

Photographer: Shirren Lim (Jakarta, Indonesia) Registered
Born in Penang Island, Malaysia, in 1970, Shirren would find herself moving cities over the course of her life. She is now based in Jakarta, Indonesia. Shirren took up photography in 2009, as she thought it would be an interesting habit, later she discovered it as her true passion. Shirren loves portraitures best. To her, the expressions people wear are so beautiful, so telling, so uncovered in their sincerity. With her photo-taking, she tries and does justice to capture humanity in its many forms. Shirren’s work has been described as intense and earthy with her simple composition cutting to the heart of the subject matter. As a child, she had flipped through many of her father’s National Geographic magazines, but it was Steve McCurry’s 1984 “Afghan Girl” that she recall two decades later. That is what she wants to do with her life. She believes, someday, she can able to capture that one moment that could change the world. Her work has appeared in several web and printed magazines.

This was taken during my day visit to Patong and walking along Bangla road. Just a random photo of a food vendor on a motorbike, who just happened to let me take his photos. This is why I love photography and love candid photos. I think I took about four photos in this series at different stages. I love the look on his face as I take photos. I feel in love with Patong and Bangla road, its like a photographers playground, with so much to see.
