Yes, I am incredibly late to the world of mobile phone photography. I never thought much about it because the camera unit on the mobile phones I have owned over the years have never been known to be particularly competent. My start to mobile phone photography involvement was totally accidental. You know the usual story: I saw something really interesting and I did not have my camera with me. Besides, I don’t care much about the pixel quality of random street photography anyway. It is more about the moment than picture quality (Though having both would be ideal). So out came the phone from my pocket and I snapped away. And then I just thought, “Hmmm I should do this more often.” Continue reading “Starting With Mobile Phone Photography”
Here is a companion gallery to my review of the Nikon AF-P DX Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6G VR. As I mentioned in my original review, this is a pretty good general-purpose do-almost-everything lens. I have been using it for street photography, a little bit of architecture, some food and still life. Pretty much nearly everything you may need for a travel lens. Even for professional photographers, this lens could suffice for a non-work-related casual day out.

Welcome to Qatar Doha, Hamad International Airport. This has become quite an active transit hub for air travel in the Middle East. Of course there is the problem of the recent politically-charged blockade made against it. Nevertheless, Qatar still has a strong physical advantage in the region. There are many people from different regions traveling around the world who still choose to transit here. Continue reading “2018 Week 7 Gallery. Doha’s Hamad International Airport.”
You would have thought that with a flight that lasts more than 16 hours, I would have gotten more pictures from Sweden. But I was here for work, not leisure. I also needed to leave as early as possible. Suffice to say I had very little leisure time, but did manage to snag one nice little photographic souvenir from this place. Certainly one of my most satisfying image.
Right, finally I am finishing up on the images I took from the trip months ago. There are still a few images pending in my stock library, but the images in this entry should round up most of what I want to share on this blog. A small collection of street and nature images round up my trip to Melbourne and Victoria. Continue reading “2017 Week 51. Last Images From Victoria.”
The fun fact is that the Queen Victoria Market ranks as one of our top destinations in Melbourne. First, it’s about shopping, and that makes the missus happy. Second, it’s physically un-demanding and easily accessible in Melbourne’s inner city, so that makes the missus happy too. Third, happy missus means my life becomes easier and generates even more happiness. 😛
All right, it is actually a genuinely interesting place. That’s important too. Continue reading “2017 Week 46: Melbourne Queen Victoria Market”
I finally got to visit what the Economist magazine ranks as “The most livable city” for multiple years consecutively. After spending seven days here I came to the unbiased conclusion that one magazine’s opinion does not qualify as any form of Cosmic Truth. 😛 Melbourne is certainly a fine place, but “livability” is definitely subjective to different people. So all you folks from Sydney shouldn’t be too miffed that your rival city kept topping the chart ahead of yours every year in the same chart. I just might prefer Sydney over Melbourne. 😉 Continue reading “2017 Week 40: Scenes From Melbourne’s City Centre”
In response to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Ooh, Shiny!
In a hot, sunny tropical afternoon, pedestrians walk beneath the shelter of concrete buildings to find respite from the blazing sun. Amid the shadows cast by the stone roof and pillars, strong rays of bright sunlight finds its way through to create an interplay of light and shadow with a pedestrian. For a brief moment the man steps into the light and turns his face towards it, as if acknowledging the wonder of the natural light among the man-made geometry.
