Hanoi Portraits

#Writing Challenge – 2/30

This is definitely one of the best portrait that I have captured ever. I think I have posted this portrait a few times in my blog, but I guess it worth mentioning again. It reminds how much I love photography back then. I have since put my camera down and have not been shooting much. I have been thinking so much in the past couple of months whether I should start going back to photography. It definitely gives me a sense of purpose especially during the weekends. And will also help me to do see more new things especially during my rides.

The photo above was captured during my trip to Hanoi as part of Crossing Bridges. It was the second Crossing Bridges ever. I was supposed to go to the first one but due to unforeseen circumstances, I had to pull out. Again – I have since not gone to much Crossing Bridges. The last one was in Padang. I do hope that I am able to go this year.

 

Throwback: Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah

Photography

It has been a while since I last posted a photo or even a blog post. I have been pretty busy lately and has not gotten much time off to do things that I want to do. I have resigned from my current post though, and will be moving on to a new career and industry. I take it as a challenge for myself. Going to be extremely challenging but with that, I am taking a long break starting. I do plan to go for a long holiday before I step into the new shoe at a new place.

As I am going for a break, it is a good time for me to start picking up back an old hobby that I have long neglected, which is photography. With my new hobby, I think it is also a good time for me to start posting a photo a day! Will this work, I don’t know but let’s try for the next one week and see if I am able to do this. The photo I guess can either be an old photo or a new photo that I taken throughout the week. It does not matter whether I take the photo using my phone or my camera. The important thing is about me having to capture something.

The photo taken is one is on my really old Nikon back in 2006. On a trip to Kuala Terengganu. I must say, the exposure was perfect, I wish I had a better camera so that I can manipulate the dynamic range and get a better photo. Perhaps when I get a better camera, I will make a trip to Terengganu again and reshoot this photo. It has been 9 years since I last took this photo. Just amazing. Looking at my old photo – I have progressed so much in terms of photography. I can safely say that in the past – I shoot mostly snapshot, and now I am extremely picky (perhaps also because Lightroom CC is so expensive in terms of storage. I am still clearing up some old photos and archiving it versus keeping it in Cloud 🙂 I will only keep the good photos on the cloud, and the rest can be kept in my hard drive. If I lose it I don’t really care 🙂

Visit to Kuala Sepetang

Photography, Travel

Last weekend I did a trip to Kuala Sepetang because I thought I wanted to eat cockle. The last trip I did to Kuala Sepetang was couple of weeks ago in which I went for motorcycle trip up north to Penang. A friend of mine introduce me to this place called Restoran Tepi Sungai (Restaurant By The River).

The restaurant it self is on a platform above the river mouth, along the mangrove coast of Kuala Sepetang or better known as Port Weld. It was a short trip and I did not do any food photography. It was mainly a food trip to eat dinner. I did however took a few pictures when I was walking out of the restaurant. One of these days I should make a trip there and go for some street shooting. It does look like a nice place to shoot.

Here are some photos that I took…
