This was taken during a photo walkabout I did around my estate today. Actually, I think this is a Hibiscus flower and not a rose, but who cares anyway? I only had my 28-105mm with me at the time, this would’ve looked even nicer with the 50mm. Had to cut the walkabout short though, the weather’s been pretty unpredictable nowadays and it started raining.
Love how the colour pops through HDR.

Late post again for yesterday’s photo, but I’m making it up with an early post for today. While I was taking photos of the roadside stall in JB before, I noticed this boy curiously looking at me probably wondering why I’m bringing my camera around taking photo of food. Naturally, I pointed the camera at him to test the water and he actually started posing. Later, I found out that his parents own the roadside stall. I didn’t notice it while shooting, but after processing the photo I realised that a few of his teeth have already gone bad and are black – very saddening.
Shot this with the 28-105mm and HDR.
My cousin Nural (who also happens to be the Creative Director of this site) turns 22 today! Actually, no, she turns 22 tomorrow but we celebrated her birthday today at Mad Jacks Simpang Bedok. What can I say, all the cousins are all relatively old now.
On to today’s shot. This was taken with the 28-105mm with the external flash. Processed in Aperture and then finalised with Photoshop. No HDR again today – not til I get more comfortable with doing portraits in HDR.
Happy Birthday, Nural!

Phew, barely made this post with 10 minutes to spare before Day 5 as a result of procrastinating the whole day. Took this shot yesterday while going around town after high tea. For those who haven’t been back to Singapore in awhile, this multi-million dollar apartment sits on top of a (yet another) high-end shopping mall called ION. It’s at what used to be the slope beside Orchard MRT where Pinoy maids and Bangladeshi workers used to conglomerate every Sunday for picnics. Has this deterred them from still spending time along Orchard Road? Not really. Has the mall added to the slew of already uncountable high-end fashion houses along Orchard Road? Of course (which is no surprise, really). I’ve gotta say though, this apartment building is pretty awesome-looking.
Used my 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM lens for this one. HDR’ed it with some new settings to bring out the colours. Hope you guys like it.
