Day 33 of 365

A very Happy Chinese New Year to all my Chinese friends and viewers out there. Tis’ the season to gobble down ’em oranges cos you can’t get them this good and sweet at any other time of the year. In light of recent reports of a certain prominent individual in Singapore making unnecessary anti-racial/religious comments, I thought it would be apt to caption this photo in Malay today. My stand on the matter is, we integrate fine in this country cos the last time I checked it was 2011 and not 1965.

I love how HDR brings out the colours and the texture of the oranges. If you look carefully, you can even see condensation trickling down the sides of the oranges cos this shot was taken just after taking the oranges out of the fridge. They’re not going to be around for long though, time to pop them in my mouth once i click Publish.

Happy Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai!


Day 8 of 365

Lights and Sounds – Yellowcard

Busy day today with lunch plans and guests over at home so wasn’t able to get any good shots today. After going through and editing multiple photos that I already had in my photo library, I finally decided on this one. This was taken about two years ago during Chinese New Year at the Paragon Shopping Mall in town. I was just starting out with photography then, so I was still using my 18-55mm kit lens (yucks, i know!) at that time.

Love how the colour of the lanterns pop through good old HDR.

Hopefully I’ll get around to shooting something decent for Day 9 tomorrow. I’ve a few ideas on what to do – fingers crossed.
