Between March and April, we had a 2 weeks holiday in Malaysia with my brother Johann, and both of us were keen on taking loads of pictures. My brother had a new camera, a set of lenses and a new passion. I was happy to have my own photographer to model for my Instagram feed.
Unfortunately, neither of us have training in modelling, nor in photography, which resulted in some hilariously failed pictures.
1- When there was a water drop on the GoPro
We loved taking plenty of pictures with the GoPro; unfortunately the housing has a micro-scratch attracting a droplet of water that usually ended up covering my face.
2- All the times we wanted to look like models but ended up playing it stupid
I realised that I got more engagement on my Instagram posts if I was in the picture. I also realised that I have no idea how to pose seriously.
3- When my brother was too white
4- When the camera wasn’t in focus
We took plenty of lovely pictures of us together, the kind of picture my mom would do everything to get hold on… if only we weren’t that blurry.
5- When the weather failed us
That actually happened almost every day, but sometimes it was more upsetting.
6- When Johann destroyed the street art
7- When we weren’t in the frame
8- When we forgot which way gravity goes
9- When I forgot about my knee injury and tried to do a yoga pose
Yoga poses always look good right? Ah yeah but with an injured knee it’s not that easy to stand in tree pose, or any pose for the matter.
10- When we forgot to take our goggles off
We totally failed as beach bums. Out of 5 days at the beach we lay down our towels and ourselves on the top only once, and we both got sunburnt. The other days, we went swimming a couple of lengths in the sea, overheated, and went back to rest in our AC dorm.
We learn from our mistakes right? These fails are not that bad, most of them remind me how much fun we had and I would actually consider them as pretty good pictures! Eventually, we got quite a few very good pictures that would make my mum proud!
Today we went on a crazy scooter ride in the Cameron Highlands to visit the BOH tea plantations! Minutes after this picture it started pouring rain and we got totally soaked! Aujourd’hui on a loué un scooter pour faire un tour dans les Cameron Highlands, et après avoir visité la plantation de thé il s’est mis à pleuvoir pire pm que sous la douche et on s’est fait tremper comme une soupe ! #teaplantations #cameronhighlands
