A Good Day

Kuala Lumpur
Ricoh GRV 18mm

On a Sunday morning, sweating it out along a crowded corridor by the roadside and surrounded by 'garbages', these young girls' efforts put a lot of us to shame. 

They are part of Tzu Chi's regular volunteers, collecting recyclable materials from the neighbourhoods, segregate them into different categories, repack and sell them to the recycling centres to raise funds for charities. 

What a admirable noble deed to Go Green protecting the environment and help others in need at the same time!

Panorama




























































Melbourne
Horizon Perfekt. Kodak Ultra Max 400

Ultra wide-angle shots are amazing. Seeing more in one shot, what can be more beautiful that that?


















Kuala Lumpur
Horizon Perfekt. Lomography CN100

Although it's very easy to shoot digital pano-shots now with newer cameras and smartphones, it's always this indescribable feel of analog charm in films!

Looking at a 120-degree picture is simply bewildering, either horizontally or vertically  ;-)


























































Bangkok
Horizon Perfekt. Lomography CN100


However, it doesn't mean a phone camera can't take as good a pano-shot though, even without setting it to panorama mode...

All you need is a PAN, of course! :)

Love





Kuala Lumpur
Leica M-E. Summicron-M 35mm

It seems just not too long ago, I was watching my little baby girl on her pram, sucking her thumb, holding tight to her soft toy and talked gibberish to me... and now I'm looking at this young teenager busy with her school works, and will probably grab her skateboard and out sweating the next minute, I'm feeling blessed and the love in the air!

On The Road




























Kuala Lumpur
iPhone5

I drive a lot everyday, I'd say 80km or a little more on an average working day in the city. That's probably 3-4 hours I spend everyday sitting in the car.  Phone camera is my toy to kill the time stuck in the traffic...  Here are some of my collections -

That's a beaten fellow road warrior.

This dude has been on the road for so long he needs some fresh air!

Isn't that an Ikea shoe rack?

Catching Rainbow

























Melbourne
Leica M-E. Summicron-M 35mm


It was an enjoyable road trip along the Great Ocean Road, amid the rainy weather. A perfect "drive slowly and stop for coffee" kind of weather.  And the day was topped off with the finding of the end of the rainbow!
