Wanted to try out something with the 14mm and F60 film camera, but wanted to take some test shots to see the shutter speed and aperture matches. Yeah, I use my 2k DSLR as a light meter. Coz the 14mm won’t meter and focus on the F60. Hey, you gotta use what you have.

You know what? Maybe they’re on to something with this fisheye + full frame thing.

Moon Cake Festival/Mid Autumn Festival

Looks like the transition is complete, well on the surface that is. All my links will point to the new site, and my old link will redirect itself to here. But all my older posts are still pointing to the old server and looks like I have to edit all the files individually to point to the new site so any visitors via Google will find the new site. I’m just anal when it comes to the little things really, so all these little nagging things, such as redirecting, dead links, and dead images are still at the back of my mind.

My biggest concern really is the Metal Gear Solid Codec Ringtone I’ve posted a while back, that has since become my most popular post. Since it looks like I can’t redirect it automatically as easy as it was with the main index page, it seems that the ranking for this new site’s Codec Ringtone is gonna start at the bottom now.

Anyway, everything I’ve designed has been translated 98% onto the final site, 2% of which is the little small problems, like dead images and in IE, those menu won’t drop down at all. Oh, you’re on IE? Go try Firefox or Opera or even the latest phones to check my site. It should either drop down, or gracefully downgrades to an accessible site without the layouting. My N80 can drop down the menu items. An iPhone could as well (that’s for another story), I haven’t tried on Linux systems or other obscure browsers, but if they’re based on a good CSS compliant browser, it should drop down.

And oh. The biggest thing that led me to design this site as such? Now I can present a full 1024 px wide landscape images. Fun for your bandwidth.

Chtulhu – His Majesty’s 61st Birthday Fireworks

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.

Prettiful Flower


Haha, don’t worry, I’m not gonna start to do Macro any time soon. SB600 on 1/64 Power on the left, and SB800 on 1/64 power on the right. Both a few inches below the flower. Background was an open garage.

Whoops. Wrong set declaration there.
