I know you’re wondering what TheShyPoLiCe is so let me get that out of the way for you. TheShyPoLiCe (read as The Shy Police) is a name my friend, Steph Po, and I gave ourselves when we started a photography project way back in 2013. We came up with it by combining our last names, Po and Li, and added ‘shy’ because we’re shy people, I guess. I don’t remember why we used police out of all the PoLi words we could have used.
Our last project was a Color Diptych Project. We’d have a color assignment per month and we’d take one photo per week with that color. She would then edit both photos into a diptych, and that was it! Unfortunately, we didn’t finish one whole year… but we’re back again with a brand new Project Diptych!
This time around, we’re following a 52 Week Challenge to determine what our weekly topic/subject will be. We’ve just finished with January so let me show you our output for the month!

Week 3 : Colour Harmony (Left: Dennis, Right: Steph)
Week 4 : Quiet Moment (Left: Steph, Right: Dennis)
With me living in the Philippines and Steph living in Canada, it’s interesting to glimpse a view of what the other person’s daily life is like, or how it is on the other side of the world. It’s always a nice little surprise for me to see what Steph comes up with for any given topic! Hopefully we finish one whole year and maybe print these out!
