Moonlight caught in film

Maybe I should stop publishing a blog before I get my film developed, then posting another one with the film ones. I guess I'm just too impatient.

All the images were taken with Olympus OM10 with Kodak Tri-x 400.

The tripod was obvious companion for all these images. The lens was Olympus Zuiko 50mm f/1.4. The manual adapter for OM10 only shoot up to 1sec, and I didn't have bulb shooting release. So I decided to take as much as light it can, and I ended up shooting at wide open f/1.4, 1sec.

Some interesting scenes were captured, and it's good for me to compare the last one to the digital image  in the previous post. Both of them were shot at the exactly same place. Literally my X100 was sitting on top of OM10 which was attached to the tripod. I coulnd't be bothered to swap the camera for the tripod :)

The moonlight at the Light Garden

So I went to Centennial Parklands, Sydney for the event called the Light Garden. The idea was - at least according their event website, 'As the sun sets over Sydney, wander through the spectacular illuminated Paperbark Grove and into the magic of the Light Garden'.

When I actually visited the event on Friday night, I have to say that everything I expected from the event wasn't good enough. Out of all the small hiccups of the night, the top rank goes to the light decoration itself. It was no where near to be called spectacular. Even though this judgment could be strongly regarded as subjective to the individuals. Maybe I should not expect too much from the free event, still though they really neeed to work harder to impress some of the visitors (like me).

Ironically, the disapointment I had with the artificial lights in the park really made me to discover how beautiful the moon light was. So, I decided to try bit of night landscape photography. The tripod I bought in 2009 a…

2013 Australia Day

Australia Day is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the date commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove, New South Wales in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of Australia (then known as New Holland) ... - From Wikipedia, Australia Day.

The overwhelming amount of Australian flags were mind blowing indeed, so as the positive attitude of people on the street. It's great to see that the national day of the country is celebrated as a joyful festive event, which can otherwise easily fall into the mis-interpreted patriotism.

I am extremely privileged to live in one of the most blessed country in the world, and that was the day that confirms me that people here are as beautiful as the country. Happy Australia Day~!

All the images were taken with X100.
