Easter Egg Bash Event – 24/03/2013

Three years ago I volunteered for an Easter-themed charity event raising fund for Little Rose shelter – a refuge that provides shelter, care, education and assistance for young girls who are at high risk for or are survivors of sexual abuse or human trafficking in Vietnam.

It was a wonderful experience since I was able to support the shelter. And the visit to The American School of Vietnam was a great field trip, I had the chance to get to know the international elementary education environment in Vietnam.

Here are photos of the event shot and retouched by me. I’m no expert of any photo-manipulating tool (though I’m taking basic Photoshop class hehe) and prefer keeping original angles so please excuse my amateur quality.

Uh oh, baby got irritated and demanded some attention!

Though I usually shy away from public events, I do enjoy observing and capturing people getting the most out of the jolly atmosphere. I want to save real moments in life, moments that tell stories though not so impressive but have certain meanings in people’s lifetime.

I’ve always wanted to learn photojournalism. I’m impressed by World Press Photo’s statement as below:

We work to develop and promote quality visual journalism because people deserve to see their world and express themselves freely. Freedom of information, freedom of inquiry and freedom of speech are more important than ever, and quality visual journalism is essential for the accurate and independent reporting that makes these freedoms possible.

I believe visual storytelling can empower freedom, the top value of humanity. Different individuals may read a different message from a photo through their personal outlook, but no matter what they see, the value they earn is valid.
