Saffron vs. Ranoadidas

007_DSC_0049_processed

Couldn’t get lots of good pictures as I forgot to bring my Wireless Triggers for my flash, so all I could do was use CLS, which meant line of sight, which meant I can’t fiddle my camera around to get good angles as this would definitely block the CLS signals. But in any case, I had to make do with what I’ve got, which meant practice some more in case my wireless trigger do fail, which I half heartedly expect them to during a shoot.

Chtulhu – His Majesty’s 61st Birthday Fireworks

Chtulhu
Cthulhu is a fictional monster created by horror author H. P. Lovecraft, and is one of Lovecraft’s Great Old Ones. It is often cited for the extreme descriptions given of its appearance, size, and the abject terror that it invokes. Because of this reputation, Cthulhu is often referred to in sci-fi and fantasy circles as a tongue-in-cheek shorthand for extreme horror or evil.

Had an outing with the lads for the fireworks. In attendance were Jim747, Airbiscuit, Artyeo and his wife, some two old cool dudes, and CPS and Ber off somewhere taking a different vantage point. Where were we located? I scouted a jetty the day before for our shoot, and sure enough, the two old dudes were there first. We first tried my second location, which was on top of a ridiculously high concrete bridge but found our shots ruined due to the tungsten lamps in our shooting line of sight. Went back to the jetty, joining the other older dudes there, and set up our equipment. With remote cords in hand, cameras mounted on tripods, we were set. I intended to get some focus blur effect but only had a rough idea on how to do it. In the end, I tried makig lots of experimentations to get the timing right just to get a decent image. In all, I succeeded in taking a couple of cool focus blurred shots, which means, for me, it’s a great outing.

Experience

Experience

While talking about camera stuff on our Jing Chew session, a family consisting of an elderly couple and someone that looks like their granddaughter took a table next to ours. The man had an elaborate tattoo which I couldn’t keep my eyes away of, and I was surprised that he made small talk to me, which I happily obliged to.

The woman told a story how the tattoo got there, which just piqued my interest some more. It’s rare to see an elderly man to have a nice tattoo such as that, it’s even rarer to see it on a Bruneian, which made me get up the courage to ask for a photo as I found the story quite remarkable. He agreed, but without a shot of his face.

They were confident from the start, somehow knowing they will end up at least in the top ten. But even they were surprised that they’ve won it. Congratulations!

Blog Drivel

http://onky.blogs.friendster.com/yau/2007/06/better_than_uk_.html

Wow, such eloquence.

When you insinuate that you might want to “slap” my “grateful parents”, you’ve just opened a can of worms there buddy. I’ve known a lot of good people coming from ITB, and they have moved on to contribute to the nation after going through the programs offered at ITB. But to say their parents are “stupids” and “bitter” just because their children didn’t get offered the chance to go abroad (that the writer might have squandered, by looking at his thought process) is beyond what is considered proper opinion.

Who’s better is not in debate here. With that, please, do sound off. I like to sample your opinion.
