A year ago at SAV

Sunset @ SAV, a year ago while i was still helping out in the 7th Coy, BB

Found some pictures of Kate and Paul on my desktop. Did a shoot for them at macritchie resevoir when i was still a DSLR noobie (and i still am) about a year ago.. He some what reminded me about it earlier today. Good luck for your tests Paul.

Happy Times!

Chek Jawa, Pulau Ubin

Found this pic in "My Received Files" folder which leo sent over a couple of months ago. Used his camera ( Nikon d100) to take some photos. I think the composition of this picture is kinda messy. But haaay! i like that big withered tree in the foreground in contrast to the trees behind. To me, it represents a transition on how these mangrove plants wither off (not that i hope that they'll all just wither and die but yea.) We were blessed with wonderful weather and a nice cloud formations.

Happy times indeed! as compared to what we're experiencing right now - projects, projects and more projects and of course, the Design and Development of Aero-components and Processes (DDACP) projects are the killer. Spending hours after hours in the lab running analysis and not seeing the transition of day to night ain't fun! Picture was taken at the start of April before the guys enlisted and we all were as carefree as the wiiinnnnnnndddddddd. Spent the day cycling around ubin and getting lost! oh i miss the coconuts!

Now? they're in the army (it might be a good thing- so we have time to do our projs), cw is going to the states and we're stuck back in school. But heey! school's fun! how ironic.

So now i'll leave you with the pic to ponder. This is one of our last natural coastal/mangrove habitat in the cosmopolitan city of Singapore - conserve it.


PS: please don't look at the picture at large. view small. its kinda horrible when it is blown up. :(

My Workspace

nahhh. thats not my workspace. Not to sound geeky or anything but that's my dream workspace indeed. Check out those Macs! and the amazing view out of the window. What i'm getting now is a sky and an opposite block of buildings.

That workspace belongs to a gentlemen who goes by the name of pete carr, a photographer based in liverpool, uk who has published a couple of photography books. He uses HDR (High Dynamic Range) post processing the most (in fact 50% of his works are hdr) and i'm inspired by him to produce some magnificent HDRs if my ability allows. (: thanks for your inspiritation pete, all the way down from singapore.
