It may be late, but it’s still 12/12/12 now. It won’t be soon so I’d better write this post super quick. No doomsday insight, instead I was out celebrating the end of year 2012 with some great friends before we go our separate merry ways for the holidays.
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 […]
My biggest distraction in doing this project are books. I always find it hard to drag myself out of the world these books kept me in. The longer the stories, the thicker the volumes, the better. A mammoth effort with the last scrape of self-discipline got me into producing today’s photo. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go back to the story in the 18th century Edinburgh .. Photo was taken using an iPhone
This morning was pleasant. Weather wise. It’s not too warm and there was plenty of cool air from the wind. A perfect running day. I remember at the beginning of this project I took a lot of photos with my iPhone during my morning/afternoon run. I’d stop and snapped, and continued on running. I didn’t do that a lot these days as I used mostly my DSLR for my posts. Today I decided to do it again; to take photos […]
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 […]
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, […]
