Paddington Markets

Time to time I go to Paddington Markets that is near Centennial Park in Sydney. It's not a type of market you would go to find second hand bargains, rather you would find the products that can't be found in an ordinary shopping centre.

It's always nice to get out and get some fresh air. Love the atmosphere in Oxford street. Plenty of cafes, pubs and galleries you can hang around and chill.

After parking at the Centennial Park, it's just a 10 mins walk to get there.

Nice cafes on the way you can find, especially you can indulge yourself with the sweetness of chocolate

The vivid colours coming out with nice sunlight of the day. I kinda liked his double sided face paintings.

The vintage sunglass store was using Nikon F film camera as a sunglass holder. Really wondering whether the camera is actually operational.

The guitarist who spotted me. A quick smile after also made him smile.

Post Processing

Although I enjoy photography as an escape from the daily grind, I can't fully distance myself from being a photographic geek when it comes to cameras and gears. I have subscribed numerous camera review channels on YouTube and can spend hours reading/watching about various old and new cameras. Especially, most of the brand new digital cameras, they tend to show off their amazing new sensor, super fast shutter speed, and high ISO capabilities resulting in amazing low light performances ... then, I start to scratch my head thinking that post-processing I do nowadays is done to degrade the quality of photo to have a so-called 'vintage film look'.

The Funny thing is that I still love working with RAW files to start with, and the first processing I do is always de-noising an image. Even when I'm almost certainly sure that I'm heading for a coarsely grained result, somehow I like to start with a picture with least amount of noise. It's just like preparing a white canv…

Shark Fishing

I have completely forgotten about these photos. They were taken from Solomon Island last year. I was meant to post, but my laziness caught me up. Eventually, I found them again while organising my Lightroom library.

So, this was on the 2nd day at the Nugu Resort, Solomon Islands. Some new tourists arrived on that day, and they went out for evening fishing. According to them, they caught 3 king fishes and 1 shark at the same spot, and it was their first time fishing on the sea. What a first-time luck!

I had never seen a shark this close before. The skin was super smooth, and it felt like a scuba diving suit.

This man who was a local driver of the fishing boat and he was called to help clean the shark. Although the photo looks rather intimidating, he didn't know what to do in the beginning as he never cleaned a shark before.

So this is the guy who caught the shark. It took some time for them to get the bait hook out of shark's mouth.

It's time to give a quick shower to the dead …


One thing I always wanted to do well is a water sport which I can't do at all. Watching people enjoying themselves on the continuous waves from the ocean makes me smile and slightly jealous at the same time.

Thanks for visiting.
