New Zealand 2018 : Milford Sound

Having just landed the day before, after about 10 hours of flight, I took up a tour package for the trip to Milford Sound (a protected anchorage or straits) to adjust myself out of the jet-lags or travel fatigue. This had proven to be a great choice and I was able to snap some scenery…

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,…

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…

Singapore Zoo ~ Part 1

Before the theme parks hit Singapore we have our own Singapore Zoo. As I made my recent trip over, to relive childhood (haaa.. kidding, was there often), I was thrilled by the sight of new developments. In the area, the Singapore Zoo, Water Safari and the Night Safari will be joined by a Bird Park…

Hallstatt, Austria 2018

Hallstatt, 27 July 2018, was a picture perfect place that one should not miss, if you pass by this part of the country. It was an enjoyable bus trip from Salzberg or could be better if you drive. I will just leave you with the pictures captured.

Windsor Nature Park

Today’s shoot was made up of 12 individuals. The objective was simple enough - to go for a forest walk and enjoy the shoot within the walk. What I learnt immediately was my overly ambitious desire to capture everything and anything. The difference was obvious, as I noticed how I was weighed down on my…

Canon D500 (77mm) Close-up Filter

Once too often, as a photographer, I come across the need to switch my lens from street to close up on details like a beautiful flower or insects. One of the effective piece of glass that I have is Canon D500 close-up filter. D500 readily allows you to screw it on any lens with 77mm…

Kingfisher, Lotus & Dragonflies

The day started promising, white clouds and blue sky, which made me stopped everything to go for a photoshoot. The choice that pops in my mind was none other than AMK Garden West, which would be a 20 minutes stroll away from home. After packing the gear, I decided to take my bike - Tern…

Sunbird Sunday

The closest thing that sunny Singapore gets to a humming bird is - our Sunbird.  Caught one today, not literally, but on my camera, as I was rushing my children through their homework after a week of term break. The joke of always rushing the children to complete their homework much earlier in the week…
