Christmas at Vivo City

Christmas is coming again and time for X'mas shoot. With DD Saber joined our shooting gang. This year Christmas shooting will being with her (No worries, Mia will have hers soon ^_^)

Our first Xmas shoot almost got called off due to the heavy rain in the late afternoon and luckily it stopped and we decide to proceed on with the shoot. The weather was still cloudly that night and the floor was wet so I have to strap everything on myself. But luckily we managed with some nice shoots before the rain came again (and we were next to shelters).

Please look out for more Xmas shoots in coming weeks ^_^

Plane spotting at Sydney Airport

Syndey Kingsford Smith International Airport is one of my favorite plane spotting spot, with an observation deck located at the end of the International Terminal, departure level. It offers a great view to Runway 16R landing and part of the take-off. I usually spent an hour or two while waiting for my bus or custom check-in.

Disaster - Blogspot with Google+

Warning!!! Be careful when you deal with your images in Google+ when they are from your blog!!!

Recently linked up my Google+ and found it was copying photos from my Android phone along with all my other resources. I did not wish to do that, so I deleted the album from Google+ and resulted I lost all the shoots I uploaded into my blog via Picasa album.

Some read up online and I am not the only victim, some even lost years of photos due to this.

Luckily I still have my local files available. but now I have to went through all the blog entries to ensure all photos are in place...OTL

Thank you. Google-

Singapore Airshow 2012 - Part 0

2012 is the year for Singapore Airshow again. This year aerobic features was lesser than 2010 but still equally exciting.

For public visitors, they may feel a bit disappointed as Jacky Chan's plane and B-787 (Z-003) was not on site on the public days. (At least the B-787 waved good bye on Sat). Especially on Sunday the B-52 did not appear in the morning show. And the afternoon show was changed to RSAF display only.

Night Macro at Venus Drive

This is my first night macro, and experience how to shoot and night and look for the small fellows (some are quite huge...) in the dark. It was quite an experience how to spot them and learning from other shooters with their DIY gears.

Having some problem trying to get the AF points on the spot, may be next time will attempt more on MF, and also to work on the balance try not to fall into the bushes sometimes ^_^|||

Please feel free to C&C on the shoots.

Macro at Bukit Chermin Boardwalk

This is my first spider macro. To be the truth, I am not a big fan of macro shooter myself (even I love looking at macro shoots) as I always afraid they may just jump over me. Especially when they appear so huge in the view

The shoots were taken at Bukit Chermin Boardwalk, a new 300m along the shore line next Labrador Nature Reserve or a 900m walk from Labrador Circle MRT.

Not sure what is the ID of this spider, but found quite a few along the boardwalk itself as it seems to find the lighting below the hand rails are good spot for their webs =)

Spent almost an hour with about 30 shoots, battling with the sea breeze.

The shoots were taken on a 600D with 100mm L, flash mounted on camera with a whale tail diffuser , shoots are 100% corp.
