Street Shooting

So I went to the city and did some street shooting. It's always fun as you can expect something totally unexpected from it. All the photos were taken by X100.

"Poem on the Glass"

The poem (maybe ...?) written on the glass wall of Hyde Park Barracks. I am not quite sure what it is about but it looks pretty awesome. I couldn't really see myself and my wife in the EVF at the time but during the post processing the details came out nicely. It's amazing what light can do.


I'm still very timid to point my camera to people. I was pretending shooting something else when they walked into my frame. I just love the display back in EVF feature after I shoot, so I can pretend shooting something else. I know that I need to get over it but it's not that easy still.

"Ice Cream 1"

"Ice Cream 2"

"Ice Cream 3"

Ice cream just works for most of people. What can replace the sweetness of it?


If you are stroding around the Sydney city, you would very often encounter a group of tourists from various places in the world. These visitors from Asia were heading to the major department stores in the city. They look like ordinary gang from your neighbours but you will be surprised once they open their wallet.


Another typical findings in the Sydney CBD. Young and adventurous backpacker from somewhere looking for his way.

"Wedding 1"

"Wedding 2"

"Wedding 3"

Finally weddings. I was resting on the bench at Hyde Park and from this one spot I met 3 different couples doing wedding photo shoot. Getting married is the most popular thing to do during weekends. Whenever I see couples falling in love and getting married (including myself) I wonder how come this society ended up that much divorces :)

Anyway they all look happy and joyful and it's always better to see happiness then misery.

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.
