Maafushi Island, Maldives

Out of all the things I enjoy doing, I think sitting in front of the computer for hours tweaking and playing with images, might be my favourite. It has been so since tenth grade when I spent hours trying to replicate an Iron Maiden album cover on Photoshop, failed miserably, since sixth grade when I tried to draw my version of Lord Raiden from Mortal Combat on MS Paint, it wasn’t bad, and earlier still, since second grade when I joined a local class to teach me how to create spirographs on LOGO, simple unadulterated fun. At every point in life, I have gone back to playing with images and technology in a way that made me feel happy and creative no matter the outcome of the project and no matter how busy life got.

True to how these things work, today, after almost two months of non-stop work and not the best health, I found myself drawn back to my computer with a set of images I photographed in Maldives. I have always been fascinated by people creating colour palettes out of images and it’s been a while since I wanted to make the time to try my hand at these. As it turns out, the backdrop of Maldives could inspire anybody to create with it’s dreamy colours. So I took a day off between naps and medication to finally try my hand at creating palettes.

It was calming and fun. Almost as much as painting. You will find me doing this again.
