A short entry without any photo.
Just finished watching the 'live' telecast of the Merdeka Celebration on RTM1.

To my fellow Malaysian friends that I've made through this fotopage, I would like to wish "Selamat Menyambut Hari Merdeka yg ke 50!"

May our friendships continue to blossom like the beautiful hibiscus and orchid flowers!

Singapore Fireworks Celebrations 2007

View all 5 photos...
My first time chasing fireworks!
And it was terrific!!!
I use the present continuous tense "chasing", due to the fact that the fireworks were quite close to
the enthralled spectators and the area of explosion was quite huge.

As my p&s Mr Canon has the disability of not being able to change his fixed lens to a wide-angle one, I had to turn left and right to anticipate the next firework that was to be released.
Due to this trans movement, every rule of photography was thrown into the Marina Bay.
No composition, no rule-of-third, no nothing.
Just press the shutter as fast as possible.

One thing to share, I found out that some of the best shots has a shutter speed of 5-6secs with the aperture set to the max.
Maybe you guys have a better setting and wanna share, as sharing is caring, as the saying goes.

So sit back and pretend to be awed at some of my feeble attempts in firework 'chasing'.

Crowd waiting patiently...

Myriad of pyrotechnics and fireworks...

Climax... See the bellows of smoke...

Singapore Skyline

View all 6 photos...
Went to One Fullerton near the Merlion Park to soak in the nationalistic atmosphere though couldn't get any tickets to see the proper parade that was held on the first floating platform in the world.

Made one of the cardinal photography mistakes, which was in forgetting to bring extra batteries and had to skimp any photo-taking which is really sad.

Made another mistake, by not recceing the place first and not coming early, thus the best place to shoot was taken up by the early-birds. Bummer!

Made one last mistake, by not bringing extra food and drinks, resulting in an empty stomach for a duration of 6++hrs.

Oh well! What a day to celebrate Singapore's independence. But I would like to keep the positives that I've learned and to try not repeating the mistakes again. Hopefully I can do better with the upcoming Singapore Fireworks Celebrations on the 17th and 18th August.

So anybody wanna join?

I leave you with two photographs of the beautiful skyline of Singapore.

Taken by my buddy, a talented aspiring photographer, who accompanied me to the festivities. Thanks many2!

Taken by yours truly.

Due to the limited size of the grandstand facing the floating platform, many thronged the public places around the Marina Bay area such as the Esplanade Bridge, Merlion Park and One Fullerton to soak in the atmosphere and catch the live action of the performances.

Painting the town red.

Adorable babies and toddlers.

Kids having fun in the sun.

Photographers in action.

p/s: Anybody going to the Malaysia International Fireworks Competition? I wanna go too!

Hole In One

Had been busy taking photographs.

These were taken during the night before the Nanyang Technological University Muslim Society (NTUMS) conducted their NTUMS Freshmen Orientation Camp.

I was one of the volunteer photographers.

I felt bored.

Because the briefing was long.

So I took these shots through a hole in a chair.

More to come if the lazy bug does not bite me again...

Into The Sun


12th June '07

Been a long time since I've uploaded any. Should start posting the photos that have been piling up in my collections.

Picture was taken at East Coast Park. One of the busiest parks in Singapore. Even our beloved President loves to jog here. But don't tell anybody about it yah.
