January Challenge: Storm Over Town Centre (Jan 20)


20 Jan

January Challenge: Toa Payoh with Storm Clouds

I pointed this contrast of busy, colourful street and grey, stormy sky out to my sister-in-law and she said snap it! So I did. I hope you like the contrast as well.

January Challenge: Basement Ceiling (Jan 16)


16 Jan

Basement Ceiling

This was taken in the basement of a golf club. It didn’t quite turn out the way I wanted – I was trying to capture all the diagonal lines that were criss-crossing across the roof.

January Challenge: Rained Out (Jan 13)


13 Jan

Raining

I’m not terribly good at photographing rain, however I couldn’t resist the colours that seemed to almost be highlighted by the deluge that was falling this day.

January Challenge: Empty Seats (Jan 9)

January Challenge: Empty Settings at Night

Some empty settings from a midnight shot at a closed coffee shop in Singapore. I changed the angle and slightly overexposed the shot.

January Challenge: Light Up My Life (Jan 8)


08 Jan

I revisited the same site that I took photos last night, as I wanted to retake one, and there were a couple of possibilities that I didn’t have time for as well.
January Challenge - Light on the Path

I like the way the light fell on the path.

January Challenge: Light Up My Life (Jan 7)

Lights down the pathIt’s my wedding anniversary, and I couldn’t think of a better theme than light! Corny, huh?

January Challenge: Birds are such a drain! (Jan 6)


06 Jan

January Challenge: Bird Next to the Drain

Practicing Depth of Field (notice the focus on the bird) and keeping lines straight (the drain is vertically positioned).

I’m always amazed at how many small scraps of paper and such are on the ground.

January Challenge: Washing Day

I’ve been meaning to post this shot for a long time… it’s a scene every weekend at a lot of HDB Blocks in Singapore!

January Challenge: Buildings – Black and White (Jan 4)


04 Jan

Buildings - Downtown SingaporeOK – So I did something not too bright: I forgot to charge my camera battery. Not the smartest thing to do when you are in the middle of a challenge month. I have set myself a number of reminders to recharge batteries when I get home this evening.

I did have a small bit of luck in that my mobile phone was with me, and while not technically great, I am more interested in composition rather than some of the features of my camera today – I was looking at buildings, and the ‘dullness’ of the mobile phone actually seemed to offset some of the glare as the only time I had available to take shots today was at lunch!

I liked the shape of the buildings in this one.

This is the second time I am shooting with a mobile phone (I did for a day on my last holidays), and it’s not too bad as long as you keep in mind the limitations of the camera… and bottom line with mobiles (and a lot of basic point and shoots) is to have a lot of light.

January Challenge: Walk Around Work (Jan 3)


03 Jan

Day 3: January Challenge. Walk Near Bestway Building

I decided to practice with off-kilter horizons and the black and white setting on my camera. This is better than the previous two days – some of my reading paid off!

Also, the walk occurred around my office, and started just before the sun set. As the floodlights came on around the building, I was able to get alot of contrasting pics. That’s why there is such a bright light in the background of this one!
