White Shadow

I first saw the scene, which was the big poster with images of people walking from across the street of Elizabeth Street in Brisbane last week. I just needed one more element before I clicked the shutter button, hence I waited for few minutes before the guy in black came into the picture, walking. Do you see his “white shadow” now?   :)MORE +

The Silhouette

I like shooting bokeh (the out of focus area of photographic image). I shot the above using the Panasonic GF1 and Minolta MD Rokkor f/1.7 lens. I bought the lens from eBay for US$ 40. The lens was probably manufactured in the early 1980s, based on my quick search on the internet.MORE +

On the Train

This is a quick post before I am off to watch The Smurf with my daughter and wife. Photos taken on the train on my home last week. Shot with the M9 and Canon LTM 35mm f/2. Slow shutter speed was purposely selected to emphasize the movement. Converted to black and white and added some grains. I love grains.

Today is a packed day for me. I will be shooting a humanitarian event in the afternoon until around 9pm. Will post some photos later if I can. Have a great weekend everyone. Enjoy the rest of the photos.MORE +
