Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO200 | f/11 | 1/500 | Objects look better at dusk. Even these bunch of weeds. The composition wasn’t perfect as I felt a bit precious today and refused to lie down on the ground full of prickly dried grass. I placed my camera in front of object and looked on using the Live View (Lv) feature because the angle was a bit challenging. It’s quite hard to set up the camera this […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO400 | f/3.5 | 1/320 | Not many school days left for the year. Not many days left that I get to wait in the car with Ms 4 to pick her brother up from school. She too will start in the big school soon. What big changes we will have next year, and what strange mix feelings I’m having now.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… The Christmas tree decoration was today. Elf 01 and elf 02 were working together to help me decorate. Lovely little elves they are, working so well together. I could just watch them for hours…
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO500 | f/2 | 1/15 | Despite the intention, our tree is still not up yet. I’m still busy prepping, selecting ornaments, thinking, or making new ornaments, as I always do every year. I probably enjoy this part more than the actual tree decorating. This drives my kids crazy, of course, because all they want to do is to decorate our Christmas tree, especially after looking at all these colourful and sparkly things […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO800 | f/1.8 | 1/125 His was the last birthday in the year for our family to celebrate. The rest of us celebrate early in the year, 2-4 weeks from each other. This date is special, because usually we wait for this day to pass before starting our Christmas decorations, despite the constant nagging from the kids. Now, all systems go. Christmas gear in full throttle will start tomorrow. Happy birthday, D! Don’t finish […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO200 | f/4.5 | 1/250 | Day number 333 of 2012 was definitely one of the hottest day in Canberra to date. It’s scary to think it can go hotter, way hotter. The past two summers were ‘fake’, as in not hot at all (cold even), and very very wet, so it came as a shock to the system a bit to experience this kind of heat today. I could go as […]
It’s a take-photos-from-archive kinda post today, I’m afraid. One child of mine was not feeling too well, it’s very challenging to get more than 3 metres radius away from her, let alone be inspired to take one awesome shot. These pictures were taken a month ago in Melbourne while I was enjoying my Me time there. Now summer is only days away in this part of the world, and I’m looking forward to see more beach scenery like these! Nikon […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO400 | f/2.2 | 1/100 | Showers and thunderstorms are what in store for us today at the Nation’s Capital. My strawberry patch and the rest of my green family in the garden are so enjoying this lengthy wet treatment.
Nikon D90 | AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G | ISO800 | f/1.8 | 1/100 | This is the scene at the end of Ms 4’s playdate today. Indeed it was a super fun one, as it is always the case when G and A came to play. I love how they were just goofing around on top of each other on a beanie bag. Big grins, happy faces, and one totally flattened beanie bag 🙂
My son’s Lego table looked great for a couple of days after that big clean in August. From then to now, more than 3 months long, the table was totally covered by Lego pieces that you couldn’t even see the surface anymore. Today I couldn’t take it anymore. I could see some dust peeking through some of the pieces, so I just threw them all into the ‘half-way’ box (to be sorted out later), and separated all the ready-made pieces, […]
Nikon D90 | AF-S DX VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED | ISO640 | f/7.1 | 1/30 | Run baby run. When dinner time came and I still did not have any photo for today’s post, I knew it was time to go to the oval and let the kids run free. We missed the perfect golden hour light because it took forever for this family to get ready, so I focused more on the kids’ action while we were at the […]
