More than a year ago, May 19th 2008 to be exact, I went with Lex, Chong Wai Kong and AhMike for a photo outing to capture… architecture. I don’t remember the exact theme, though I think it had to do with light and shadow, and boy was there plenty of light and shadow!

Chong strikes a pose.

150mm F4 with the Minolta 70-210mm F4 beercan. Delicious bokeh! The green lateral chromatic aberration actually accentuates out-of-focus greens pleasantly.


70mm F16 on the Sony 18-70mm F3.5-5.6 DT kit lens. I like this film-ish color.

120mm F8 on the beercan. Wish I noticed I’d tilted it to the right slightly!

75mm F4 on the beercan.

Obviously, too wide to be the beercan.

So this was the Sigma 17-35mm F2.8-4 EX at 18mm. Not too wide due to the crop factor of my (then) Sony Alpha 700.

130mm F4 on the beercan. A smidgen of DRO applied.

On the way back from Wangsa Maju LRT.

It actually is “WIPE LEFT” and “RANDOM ON” in transition.

Glorious light and shadow!

Chong strikes a pose (again.)

    J: *drinks*

    Lex: It’s okay it was a year ago LOL. And nope I don’t have that picture!

    Silencers: Thanks! I guess the point of the mosque shot was to show a weird misrepresentation of proportions (a few frames earlier, the train was much bigger.)
