the Library

Library. 6552

Olivia returned to my photography world 8 months after the Chinese New Year series, this time, dressed up as an English college chic tribute to the US drama "Gossip Girls". As for me, I returned to my digital photography world, using the Canon 35mm f/2 and 400D, leaving my film gears and Canon 50mm f/1.8 behind for a moment.

I want to feature some other people in the shoot as well, it's boring to always have only Olivia, isn't it? Ailin came with her killer fashion sense, and make this photo shoot much more interesting.

This white library is great, especially for portraits I believe. Why? The white paints on the wall act as reflector, to soften the shadow and since most of the backgrounds are white, it let the picture put more focus on your subject more!

Perhaps it's the age, I grow tired to play around with tones, and reckon the original tone is the best in this series. Especially after getting new monitor, I realize my previous edits are too warm, which kinda already let people brand it as my style...

a walk inside Singapore's supreme court

corner of Rotunda Chamber

wandered around the Rotunda Chamber.
the girl came down from the 2nd floor, descending the staircase covered by velvets.
only to find that, everything is not the same anymore and everything is still changing.
and tears rolled down her cheek helplessly.
she is alone, left behind by the ever-changing world.

*******************************************

I had never tried architecture or details of buildings. I was still looking for scenes like the above around the Supreme Court of Justice. I always rather not to waste my shutter for anything that I don't see worth taking, as I have to delete those pictures later.

Cracks

Rare open house, by the old supreme court and old city hall, which will be closed for renovation and become museum 3 years later.

I ❤ MUSEUMS

HM took quite some many photos of me in the supreme court. With someone in the picture, it gives life to the otherwise difficult to photograph picture. I don't know how Jevon fared with his love for old buildings. (He took a small piece of the broken tile, like always)

Well this is the only pic of me in my camera...

Bobby's Affairs 2, with rambutan

greed eyes

His hair, shiny and curly under the evening light. Can you resist not to go forward and stroke him?

a handshake

the Treat!

These pictures were taken before Barnie was introduced to the Su family, and before Bobby got into accident that impacted one of his hind leg...

He is still as cute as ever! Despite now my dad's love is only about 40% on him and 60% on Barnie!
