Our very first post featured photographs with undesirable magnification and pixellation. The camera we possessed was an old and borrow piece of technology. The photographs turned out to be unprofessional and disgusting. That was what I would call them today. We did not know how to take photographs. Neither did we know how to do interviews. We would randomly approached somebody (who looked kind and polite) and asked them questions about their job scope and their life in Queenstown. These questions are often simple and inconclusive. Unfashionable. But there was where we came from. And that was our first try.
Approaching someone and getting rejected for interviews have been part and parcel of MyQueenstown Team. At the beginning, we would feel dejected. However, the kindness displayed by some residents, who even served tea and drinks for us while interviewing, was gratifying and a symbol of mutual trust among resident in our community. We started the blog because we wanted to write something. We continued the blog because we wanted to preserve the history and every memory of Queenstown-ians. We persisted because this had became a part of our lives. There is always a story behind every tear or every smile. There is always something for us to ponder and write about.
