The Charms of Tokyo Street Photography Exhibition

I know, you must be thinking "What?! Another blog post about Tokyo Street?" and to be honest, I kind of have the same reaction. Nevertheless, repetition aside, I really do have something that makes me personally happy to share with you guys today. :)

So then, back in August, I was in Tokyo Street @ Pavilion KL. Since I had my bro's DSLR with me that day, I decided to snap some photos and join The Click Shop x Tokyo Street Photo Contest. I submitted 3 photos (the maximum allowed) really close to the deadline in early September and crossed my fingers.

Entry #1
Entry #2
Entry #3
So last week I was in Pavilion for the TANGS Closed-Door Preview Sales, and after the shopping was done, I was walking along the link bridge at level 4 when I came across the photography contest exhibition. Imagine my surprise when I saw a very familiar-looking photo displayed right next to the 3 winners...

Tadaa! Somebody added a caption for it too.
That was probably my most syiok sendiri yet FML moment - looking at the exhibition photos and seeing my submission made it as a finalist, but placed right next to the top 3 winners. Makes me wonder how close was I to winning one of those limited edition lomo cameras. =/ Oh well. I didn't really expect to win anyway. It was just a fun opportunity to snap some nice photos and try my luck. :)

See you next time at
