Tried to capture the reflection of magic hour glow on the ICC building, but lacking mastery, turned out as a golden blob. Took this photo in pretty poorly lit conditions with the 50mm lens, and rested the camera on the floor to keep really still. Love this photo of Smudge and didn’t want to edit […]

The large park right on the harbour at Sun Yat Seng memorial. I used to run along here when I lived in Hong Kong 5 years ago, closer to my old neighbourhood. So much lush greenery not far from central and people picnicking on a week day. I love sunshine creeping through the crown of […]

I have fallen slightly behind taking a photo a day and posting them! I didn’t think finding beauty in daily life would become a commitment and I am trying to focus on one thing and doing everything better and being present. Here’s St John’s Cathedral right on Garden Road. Lots of nature themed photos this […]

I love the name of the restaurant and it’s my friends’ favourite spot for a quick Indian food fix.  We (over) ordered the usual: butter chicken, garlic naan, roti prata, lamb briyani, tandoori chicken and a palak paneer. It’s a simple hole in the wall in Causeway Bay and you climb up some greasy stairs […]

I bought a new 50mm lens for my Canon D1200, also known as the “nifty 50” and portrait lens. I hesitated getting one because I wanted to first get to know my basic kit lens and camera, but I gave in to temptation. The effects are remarkably different. Can you spot the bee? I used […]

Lots of food photos as it’s been a little hectic and stressful this past week and I forgot to stop daily to look at the beauty in daily life. None of these photos have been retouched as I’d like to track the process and journey of evolving and getting to know my camera and light. […]

Slightly late on this one, had friends visiting and working on a few projects lately, including sewing, which takes up alot of my mindful meditation time in full focus. Some days, I also struggle to find something to photography everyday, which forces me to look deeper and harder to find beauty in everything and every day […]

A different shot of these Masala tea. The tea however is more a tea latte than a masala chai. I never noticed the little hoops for the melons to sit on in case they roll off the rack. I haven’t figured out how to take sky shots where it doesn’t compromise the colours of the […]

Wanchai wet market, two ladies kept moving and chattering in the frame so I thought I’d just shoot it anyway, the mad business of a weekday morning marketing session. I didn’t realise the right side of the frame in a way gave the picture more”depth”? Love the yellow crocks. :) Spot the dog in the […]

I think daily posts are tedious, so I’m rounding up weekly posts. :) I don’t know if I am improving at this, but I think as with every new skill, it’s a work in progress. I am getting the hang of shutter speed and aperture, hopefully it’d get easier and become more of an autopilot […]
