This photo was taken at an open park in Mount Dandenong a few months back. The little boy in the background was actually feeding these parrots, but when he ran out of bird food he decided to shoo them all away. I consider this to be a pretty lucky shot.
Another five-day catch up this week cos I’ve been under the weather. This photo is of the Macs I’ve used circa 2004-present. From left to right, I’ve got my 12″ iBook G4, my black 13″ Macbook (aka Blackbook) and my current 13″ Macbook Pro. I’ve always been a Mac fan and always will be. It’s interesting to note that although naturally being slow and unable to keep up with today’s apps, the iBook G4 is actually still running and has never failed on me.
As a homage to these systems, I set the wallpaper for the three Macs to the OS X Panther, Leopard and Snow Leopard default wallpaper respectively. Technically the Blackbook originally ran on OS X Tiger, but who cares anyway.
Mmhmm, you know this post was coming. Pretty apt for the 14th of February, even though by the time I posted this the clock hit 12.01am, damn! Anyway, this is of a wooden heart that my girlfriend gave to me. She’s got one for herself too. Phew, I finally completed all the catch-up entries I needed to do. Score!
Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! 🙂
Life in Technicolor – Coldplay
Back from yet another hiatus to Kuala Lumpur, which means no Internet connection (or was there?). In any case, here goes all the updates to catch up with the 365 cos the show must go on.
The following shots were taken during a short walkabout I took today around town. These statues somehow are supposed to promote the new ION mall in Orchard Road. Interesting how HDR brings out the colours and gives the statues a plasticine-ish kinda look.
Ok, I promise that this’ll be the last photo I post from Janet’s concert. I took this in widescreen mode with the camera’s inbuilt tilt-shift function to miniaturise the crowd and am pretty pleased with the result. Kinda looks like everyone’s made out of Lego. Never realised how small the Indoor Stadium really is. Despite that, it was actually surprisingly packed for Janet’s concert.
I got hold of free tickets to Janet Jackson’s World Tour Concert at the Indoor Stadium last night, so despite not knowing many of her songs, I rocked up to the concert with my cousins. Mainly cos it was free and partially wanting to know what the Janet Jackson hype was all about. Well actually no, it’s just cos it was free.
After being to impressive concerts in Melbourne like U2, Bon Jovi, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, P!nk and John Mayer, I have to say Janet’s concert was quite a disappointment cos the sound system was very poor. Might have even been rented from Boon’s Jam studio in Potong Pasir. Not something I would pay to go for, but then again it was free!
As usual, concert venues don’t allow professional cameras, so this was taken with a Canon point-and-shoot and post-processed with HDR.
Haven’t decided what to shoot for today’s shot. More later.
