To Love is to Let Go
______________________
Loving someone means you are willing to let her go, giving her the freedom she desires most, letting her grow her own capabilities and talents as an individual, to give her much needed space and time to mature and to become a better person. Loving someone doesn't mean that you will need to have consistent status update, to post everything related to your personal love life to the whole world (which reveals your insecurity about one another) or have a continuous contact via messenger, text or call. That is rather suffocating and giving no space to one another. Especially long distance, love is meant to empower and to motivate ourselves personally. I've seen unnecessary fights due to unreplied FB messages and Whatsapp even though both are online and both thought either was disinterested or thinking that either is having affair. Mature love transcends above these childish attitude and insecurities. Mature love gives space and time to one another. If she is meant to be yours, she will be no matter what happens. However, if she chose someone else over you, move on. It's not the end of the world. Respect yourself and recognize your own worth. You are worthy to be loved and treated with respect. Revenge simply lowers your self-respect. You should focus on your self-improvement and self-empowerment. If you have problems with love, always communicate with one another instead of assuming. You can make a difference. God bless.

Enhancing Love Using Photography
________________________________
Dear friends, I have written a blog on enhancing love using photography based on my experiences and journey as Leica photographer. Some composition of words and photos from my previous work. Shown in the lovely pic is @stefmaxwel and her husband, Edmond (captured using Noctilux and M9) In summary, photography immortalises moments, captures the emotions as well as creating an opportunity to fall in love, again. Too many couples nowadays broke-up prematurely, and not even passing their first year together in relationship. Older couples forgot how to love. That’s why, for me, it is important for these couples to rekindle the fire that one burns brighter than the sun, before it turns colder than depths of hell. The link can be found at my bio, but you can also read it here https://claudiusweson.com/2017/09/09/enhancing-love-using-photography/ I hope you enjoy reading it and have a great weekend ahead!

The Secret of a Lasting Relationship
________________________________
I was capturing this photo of my parents with my M9 and Noctilux, where it triggers something in me. The secret of a lasting relationship is to fall in love again and again, but with the same person. If the fire of love seems to be burning dimmer, revert back to the past, where the two of you first met. What attracts you to him or her? The same principle should be applicable in that scenario. Saying things like you have changed, you are no longer the same person I knew is just a symptom, and can be traced back to whether that person is committed to the relationship or not. If you are commit to one another, even if there is 1000 reasons to leave, you will hang on to that ONE reason to stay and make the relationship happens. Marriage vow is not just a vow - it is a promise between you, your spouse and God. Love is not a contract, but it is a covenant. No matter what happens to your relationship, you should find that one reason to hold on - usually love. If all else fail, always remember, this is just another trial to purify your love, like a crucible, eliminating the impurities, and leave only a stronger love behind.

Who Let The Dogs Out?
___________________________

At the southern part of Sarawak, the residents of Serian town was busy figthing off rabies infection, get their pet cats and dogs injected with vaccine lest they infect their unlucky owner. It was a sad period with Rabies claiming 5 lives of unlucky Bidayuh peoples of Serian. 
However, at the northern Sarawak, Lutong area, stray dogs were restling idly in front of New World Mart, with peoples passing by. They were so relaxed, and even when I pass them by, they just pay no attention and keep on guarding the mart calmly, as if they were nicely-paid and fed. Good dogs.

I cannot predict your future, nor I can change your past; 
I cannot correct your mistake, nor I can prevent the next;
I cannot protect you from your inner demon, nor I can slay the Annabelle's final true form.
I cannot answer your exam sheet, nor I can give you some leaked questions.

But I do know what your future is with me, it will be an amazing one, though not last for aeons but in our mortal life it will be a colourful one.
We can learn from the past mistakes lest we repeat it again, for we are learning, and together we learn better.
Forget about demons, we pray rosary together and shield our own house with Lord's prayer, focusing all our attention to Him.
Forget about cheating in exam, let's study together until the sun rises from east, shining its ray of hope to you and me, and may God bless us forever and ever. Amen.

Faraway Love
_____________

One fine evening at the heart of Kuala Lumpur, two love birds shows their affection to one another - something which many local Malaysia does best privately due to our strict culture. Little did they realise, there is a pair of eye looking at them, perhaps reminding him of his beloved a thousand miles away at his hometown - an event which happens for few a minutes until they left. Peoples whose heart is closer than skin and bones are often separated miles apart, while those under the same roof fought one another, waging another ridiculous civil war over unwashed plates or an unattended dental floss. Distance does makes heart grow fonder and true love knows no boundaries. In this age of information abundance, let us not let mass media or social media define how we should love one another. Don’t let your love expression confined by the boundaries of “likes” or “followers”. instead, turn the table and use it for your advantage. The best love expression still the one you express to one another face-to-face, heart-to-heart, with one hand on another, often without words, just simply a glance. You said it best, when you say nothing at all. Presence matters. Switch off your phone, and let the natural conversation reigns and warmth of the hand conveying information bits more effective than fibre optics. Appreciate your loved ones and express your feelings before it is too late.

Alone and Bruised
_________________

Alone you are, stranded a no man’s land - looking for hope. 
Bruised you are, from previous fights for your life, now you are unattended, and your body is doing its own magic to recover.
Night is as dark as it can be, while day is eclipsed by your seemingly unfavoured fate, a distasteful by-product of another person, bully at best, and most of the time, brutal torturer. 
However, stay strong my friend, as hope is there. This is His plan, to bring out the best in you, to purify you from all of your negativities, like a crucible - getting the impurities out of the way, leaving only the best of you. 
Stay strong and God-speed!

Kpg Pichin - once upon a time, this was a settlement of polytheistic headhunters practicing black magic, with inhumane abilities and feared by the neighbouring communities; embraced Christianity back in the 50s and now it is one of the biggest Roman Catholic village at Serian area, continue to spread the words and peace of the Lord whist preserving the unique culture of Bidayuh, prominently during Gawai celebration. Surrounded by unique carbonate formations and limestone mountains as well as waterfalls, Kpg Pichin is certainly a place to be should someone to experience a unique Bidayuh lifestyle. In the picture is the home stay longhouse, situated by Karu river with majestic limestone mountain Lenge Kiburan. Come and visit us at Kpg Pichin! 😄

Sisterly Love
______________

It is nice to know that you have a family to depend on in good times and in bad times, and to seek shelter when the storm of reality is raging, or even a bunker of love when life is dropping a nuke upon you. For many women, sisters are the place to seek for solace, a place where you can pour your innermost troubles without worry of anything, unleashing your inner demon freely for you know someone would be able to handle you and still accept you for who you are. As years gone by, from simple dolls play during childhood, first time knowing love to the parenthood times, sisters always bond closer. What more to say, when the mother joins the club. Reminding each other about the good old days, and even bringing in the sister-in-law to the fun club - It will create a euphorical chaos, leaving those outside the group wondering what is going on? Such is the beauty of sisters love. 
Regards, Claudius

One Step Closer 
___________________
You felt the pain, 
you starts to complain to yourself alone in the night, 
your so-called friends left you, 
you no longer needed in their solar system, 
your sleeping rhythms disrupted, 
your nose is running, 
you're running out of time, 
your deadlines increasing, your world seems to be crumbling... But... Every step forward, one step away from the bitterness,
Every breath you take, you're exhaling out hope
Every second passed, 
Every moments made a memory,
You're just getting closer to your goal, the one you scream out loud, shattering the silence, deafening the negativity, and who gave an F to those naysayers? They don't pay my bills. Ignore those who ignores you, your time is more valuable than to weep on your loss.
Every steps made, is one step closer. Amen. 🙏🏻 #woman #photooftheday #culture #beautiful #day #smile #fashion #love #aim #goal #photooftheday #instagood #imperial #miri #event #onestepcloser #bidayuh #ngajat #man #street #sarawak #people #purple #reflection #family #throwback #friday #iphone #streetphotography #claudiusweson #cwphotography

Headhunters
______________
Long time ago, in the land of hornbill, long before The White Rajah came, the Dayaks roam at the land, spreading their kingdom, a story that was untold and unfilmed in silver screen. The Dayaks, fought each other, each clans wage war against one another, spreading their territory using swords, spears and blowpipes; fight in an unmatched tenacity and even summon the demons to finish off their enemies. Some have exceeded normal humans capability, and even able to teleport, invincible against metal and has an incredible regenerative ability thanks to their black arts, with human heads as their trophy (headhunting/ngayau/ngayu). The mighthy Sea Dayaks (Iban) conquers the land, but the Land Dayaks (Bidayuh) holds the southern area (Kuching, Serian and Samarahan) while the Orang Ulu at the North. Afraid that it will threatened his kingdom, the White Rajah put all those wars to an end, with the help of the mercenaries from each clans. Not in Malaysian History text book. In the photo above is modern-day Iban warrior dancing in an event, lest the culture is forgotten. So much to be written, perhaps I'll continue it in my blog.

Mother & Daughter 
____________________
Throwback to the photoshoot that I has with Cici and her mother. She's just 5 months old, but she starts to chat a lot with her own language, trying to understand everything that happens around her. World seems to be so big for her, and in actual fact is so wild beyond her imagination. But she builds her own paradise, guarded by her protective father and her mother as her guardian angel. She has no need for wonder woman as her mother is already one. Soon, little we know, she will grow up, and continue the cycle - a cycle of love. I hope she loves photography too. 😉

Self-Reflection
________________
World can only disturb you when you let it disturb you. We are shaped not by our circumstances, but how we act upon our circumstances.
Let there be chaos outside, but inside, remain calm we must. 
In the darkest night, we'll be able to see the faintest of light, which some might call - our true calling.
When we walk in the bright days, many will be with us.
As we walk alone in the night, even shadow abandons you, but some might not. Treasure them. One mother pearl is way better than a thousand piece of diamond-shaped glasses; like how a crate of water bottle worths more than a bagful of diamond in the scorching-hot desert, unless death is what you wish for.
Count your blessings, not your cursings.

Let there be chaos outside, but inside, remain calm we must. In the darkest night, we'll be able to see the faintest of light, which some might call - our true calling. When we walk in the bright days, many will be with us. As we walk alone in the night, even shadow abandons you, but some might not. Treasure them. One mother pearl is way better than a thousand piece of diamond-shaped glasses; like how a crate of water bottle worths more than a bagful of diamond in the scorching-hot desert, unless death is what you wish for. Count your blessings, not your cursings. #motivation  #photooftheday  #offshore  #beautiful  #sky  #skyporn  #calling  #nature  #clouds  #horizon  #photooftheday  #instagood  #offshore  #cold  #view  #night  #morning  #self  #red  #black  #sarawak  #river  #light  #reflection  #sea  #life  #boat  #ajang  #claudiusweson  #cwphotography 
Freedom
___________

As I stare to the afternoon sun, looking at the endless horizon, this thought comes to my mind. Freedom? How many of us are really free? Free to speak. Free to love. Free to vote. Free to do what we love. Free to live our lives. Free to pursue our dream career. Are we? Are we too afraid to pursue our dreams because of people's opinions? Let me tell you something. Just do what you love. Death bed confession reveals that fear to do what we want is the most regrettable things. Confess your love. Marry whoever you want to marry. In the end of the day, you are responsible to your own happiness. All the best to you my dear friends.

Listen to Your Heart
________________________________
You can close your eyes to the things you don't want to see, but you can't close your heart to the emotions you don't want to feel.

Like sunlight, you can always block it using your hand lest your eyes hurt. But how to block sadness, pain or grief?

You might be smiling but your heart is writhing in the cage of torment. You can deny your feeling, but deep inside, you know it's not right. Listen to your heart. 
Regards,
Claudius

Immortalising Moments

Dear friends,

I love black and white photography. For me it is the best way to immortalise an moment, capturing the soul of the event, it is timeless and it is outstanding. Like what can be seen in the photo above, it is about a boy that I encounter at supermarket while I was shopping for Gawai with my mother. Instinctively, I took his photo - an expression of boredom, tiredness or even fatigue, after a long day at Serian town. Perhaps in his mind, he longs for a rest. There is so much interpretation can be made, but I leave it to you. This is one of the best element in black and white photoraphy that I love - capturing the soul of the photo, in Ted Grant's word. Also, it is timeless and outstanding. In summary, Soulful - Timeless - Outstanding. You can read more at my blog https://claudiusweson.com/2017/06/12/why-black-white-photography/. Link is at my bio, for your convenience. Have a great day ahead! 😄

Smoke House & Street Photography

Dear friends,
Due to the limitations in Instagram, I have written a blog about one of the best place to be visited at Miri town, which is the legendary smoke house. As far as we know, smoke house started as a humble stall back in early 1990s, owned by the local people selling roasted porks, fried chicken wings, its intestines, liver, fried catfish other sort of the local delicacies prepared using charcoal and fire. It is very appealing to the locals, especially for someone who just want to satisfy their craving for fried foods and don't want to be bothered by the difficulties in preparing it. The first location is at the Pujut Bus Station, although the current location is situated not far from the very first establishment of smoke house. From there, it gains popularity as many peoples, near and far, comes visiting. Taking advantage from this popularity, the second location of smoke house took place at E-Mart Tudan. This is the easiest to access as it is situated near Miri-Brunei road. Those en route to either place can grab a meal here prior continuing their journey. Do read more at the link below: https://claudiusweson.com/2017/06/11/smoke-house-street-photography/

Kanjet Ngeleput - An Orang Ulu Story

Kanjet Ngeleput is one of the many beautiful dances that Orang Ulu posses. Orang Ulu is a collective name given to the peoples originating from Usun Apau Plateau (e.g. Kayan, Kenyah, Kenyah Badeng, Lahanan, Punan etc), circa 15th - 17th century, where in the course of history, these peoples migrates to a lower plains, which is areas surrounding Miri Division, partly due to extension of power by James Brooke. Mostly are not in favour of White Rajah's power extension, but White Rajah employed the locals to go against them at Usun Apau, like in the case of Sadok Hill, Rentap's Waterloo. This dance is performed by the warriors to imitate their moves while hunting at the jungle, usually performed solo and with blowpipe and a beautifully decorated shield, with motives depended on your social rank. Dancer will perform a move similar to walking hornbill, sometimes with unexpected moves, making it more fun. During wedding or any ceremonies, this dance sometimes be performed in addition to kanjet by the ladies. Improvisation is expected, but the key moves are the same, hunter eyes preying on the others, arms ready with weapon and a showchase of leg strength (sometimes people compete to get as low as they can, but that is unnecessary). This dance is also a mark of adulthood, for a child already perfected his dance moves and ready to take on the next challenges in life! 
Regards,
Claudius
