Central Tramway

Central Tramway

After being in KL for the past two weeks I'm taking advantage of Malaysia Day and long holiday to taking an extended trip back to home. It'll be good to get back, even just for a few days, as it is pretty full on in KL and is only going to get worse - this will break it up nicely. Hopefully, I should be able to get out one evening to add to photos like the one below - Central Tramway. Night time shots with the city lights and vehicles flying around the pace definitely makes for good photos! 

I've also set up a mailing list - I thought it would be an interesting thing to try. It will send a mail each time a new post gets uploaded.

Central at Night

Last week we headed out after work to see if we could find any different angles in and around Central. With the lights from the buildings and the lights off the road, night time in Hong Kong can certainly create some cool photos. Throw in a long exposure, light trails from the traffic, aperture "stars" (not sure if there is a technical term..) and it certainly makes for something different.  

More locations to follow.

Hong Kong's Inflatable Duck

Before the inflatable duck left Hong Kong harbour I made sure to head down there and grab a photo of it. Late one afternoon, a few days before it was scheduled to leave, we decided to charge up the cameras and head down - after all it isn't often you get to shoot a six-storey inflatable duck in the Hong Kong Harbour.

We took a time lapse from a few locations on top of Ocean Terminal and while it make for a long evening there were definitely a number of keepers. Let me know which is your favourite angle .. I prefer the second

British and Irish Lions in Hong Kong - Part I

Once every four years the British & Irish Lions head out on tour to one of the big three Southern Hemisphere rugby nations - Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. For 2013 they are heading to the land of kangaroos and on the way down from the UK they stopped off in HK to play the Barbarians. It's pretty unlikely the Lions will ever stop off in HK again so I couldn't miss out on the opportunity to see them play.

It didn't make up for missing the 7s but watching the other spectators enjoy themselves was certainly entertaining. Below is a selection of photos from the evening - more will follow.

Bubbles

It's been a while since I was last in China; over a year now and I've recently found out a couple of friends will be heading to Beijing for a year, which is great as it's given me an excuse to return. I had a great time there and would really love to have the opportunity to move back and work over there. 

You can't not go to Beijing and not visit the both the athletic and swimming Olympic Stadiums. They have been come a landmark themselves in a city that is populated with hundreds of thousand year old structures. I couldn't get enough of the colour and the texture of the water cube. 

The stadium gets light up with the most fantastic blue lights - I couldn't stop looking at it throughout my entire stay.

Twilight Singapore

I'm now back in Singapore for the next couple of months so hopefully, being stationary in one place for a while will allow me put together regular updates. This time round I have my tripod with me so I my aim is to get out there and shoot some long exposure photos. 

To start this new swing off the photo for today was from my excursion on Sunday night to Collyer Quay and the ever changing Skyline of Singapore. It's a pretty impressive sight and the sun sets nicely behind the buildings. I arrived slightly later than I hoped however that didn't stop me trying to capture the skyline as night time fell and the lights began to turn on. This is always my favourite time of day - just before its completely dark but the lights of the building are beginning to illuminate. 

I've added the photo to the slide show on the home page and adjusted the "Featured Gallery" to singapore to reflect my change in location.
