Secret Arsenal : Olympus TG-1

At the recent trip to New Zealand, as in other trips before this, I was restricted in bringing excessive photography gears for documenting the moments. We (suffering the same fate) have to pack our children's and spouse baggages and be constrained by the remaining space available or the weight we can manage. Five years back,…

Christchurch Cathedral

It was over 3 weeks since my last article, as I took opportunity of my children's school break for a trip to New Zealand.  I am now loaded with images of beautiful New Zealand. My first article, on return, will however, be on the Christchurch Cathedral, the icon to the city, if not for New…

Occult Dance of the Cicadas

Night falls and four armed men made their journey into the dark forest. The evening rain had muddied the soil but they sneaked through the undergrowth quietly, maintaining their stealth with the intend to witness the occultic dance of the cicadas. The dance are only carried out in the  dark as the maidens moult from…

Singapore Zoo ~ Part 2

Continuing from the earlier article, I will be sharing a lot of the reptiles in this round. Singapore Zoo is famous for the number of primates it housed and not the cold-blooded, so this article is surely not a good representation of what the zoo can offer. I have also missed the white tiger and…

Raising Cathy: Hawk Moth

It was the start of the autumn rainy season that you were borned on the tiny Periwinkle in my patio. For the first few days that I saw you, you braved that fierce tropical storms, those late September downpours that lasted days. On the third day, I was so happy to still see you wriggle…

In the area, the Singapore Zoo, Water Safari and the Night Safari will be joined by a Bird Park…

Neighbourhood : Cats

In the recent effort to capture the changing landscapes of the neighbouring residential spaces - our public housing, I was drawn into snapping the following images of the stray cats that shares the cramp spaces with us. It was amazing on how well fed they were all are and I saw two of the biggest…

Neighbourhood : Streets

Singapore - one of the smallest country but never the shy and quiet individual on the globe. With scarce land huge population of over 6 millions, we are very densely populated and that meant that we are often photo-bombed on the pictures we take. I take it that the unique demographics had created a special…

Birds of Far Horizon Gardens

In the past weeks, I have paid more attention into observing the many wonderful birds that was found in the condominium estate that I am staying in. I have, by chance, spotted a Kingfisher and was waiting for it since. That was when I opened my eyes to the many residents that actually dwell or…

Shoot Simply from home.

Home - where I  would hold all my gears, what better location than to shoot from my personal studio and having my own models - my spouse and children? Minimising on what exposing the personal stuff - I will share the few captures from the patio:- The Birds The Flora (with man-made dew)
