Nikon D40 @ 18mm, ISO220, f3.5, 1/15 sec
The massive lobby of Berjaya Times Square, I suppose size does matter huh? ;-p

Oh and a belated Merry Christmas to all :-D

Nikon D40 @ 38mm, ISO320, f4.8, 1/15 sec
Borders at Berjaya Times Square, used to be my favourite bookstore in KL. They were unique in encouraging customers to browse by preparing lots of seats and having unwrapped books. I love their bargain sections too and managed to get good deals sometimes.

Unfortunately, during my trip there recently I found out the two storeys store was downsized to just a single storey and it had affected the selection available. I was sad, it felt like I have lost a good friend :-(

Nikon D40 @ 32mm, ISO560, f4.5, 1/15 sec
One of the entries for the Gundam Model Kits Challenge 2009 held in Sungei Wang. I had a great time photographing the models, made me glad I brought the DSLR along :-D

Late Night Visitor

Nikon D40 @ 55mm, ISO1600, f5.6, 1/13 sec (handheld).
We heard meowing outside our hotel room in the middle of the night and found this cat skulking about. I wonder if it's the same cat as this? :-)

KKIA Waiting Area

Nikon D40 @ 20mm, ISO200, f6.3, 1/160 sec.
There was a stunning soft light shining into the waiting area, but I don't think I was able to capture it :-/

KKIA Facade

Nikon D40 @ 18mm, ISO200, f8, 1/30 sec.
The design of Kota Kinabalu International Airport reminds me a lot of Kuala Lumpur International Airport. Thanks to that, I like it here because it made me feel as if I am back in KL, a city I miss dearly.

KKIA Parking

Nikon D40 @ 18mm, ISO200, f8, 1/500 sec.
I'm back from my week long vacation to Kuala Lumpur. Since I've been posting outdated pictures in the photoblog, I'm going to put everything aside for now and post the vacation pictures first in chronological order :-)

PS: I only brought the kit lens with me as it was a shopping oriented trip. It was more than enough, I never missed the heavy 18-200VR ;-)

Gritty Flower

Nikon D40 @ 55mm, ISO3200, f5.6, 1/1250 sec.
A picture taken when I was going through an obsession with film grain phase, hence I set my D40 at its highest ISO rating and fired away. This photo was cropped intentionally to make the noise more obvious. The kit lens performed rather well, don't you think?

Lomo Colourful Shades

Holga 135BC + Fujifilm Superia 200
Ingenious folks giving a second life to otherwise would-be-discarded banners as shades against the sun. This is also the final decent picture from my first roll with Holga, hope you've enjoyed them =)

PS: There's also a slight double exposure on the right side of the frame, due to the film nearing the end of its roll.

Lomo Pre-WWII Shop

Holga 135BC + Fujifilm Superia 200
If the year stamp near the roof is authentic, this shop was built in 1939. It is still serving its purpose after 70 years, lets hope it can last another 30 :-)

Love the vibrant colours here!

Lomo Trees & Track

Holga 135BC + Fujifilm Superia 200
The North Borneo Railway system has been stopped for years to upgrade the tracks. Seen here shrubs are starting to take over the railway. It is a pity they don't take the chance to put in another set of tracks, this way the frequency of the trains could be increased and it can be one of the main transportation for the people.

I also love the ancient trees near the station, there used to be more 10 years ago but they had been removed to build shops... What a shame!

Blissful Hands

Nikon D40 @ 200mm, ISO200, f5.6, 1/60 sec (Bounced flash).
I photographed my cousin's wedding over the weekend and this was my favourite photograph. Captured a split second when the bride was resting and unaware of the camera, I wanted to show the softness of her hands against the flow of the gorgeous dress :-)

PS: This was taken before the wedding ceremony so there's no wedding ring yet.

Lomo Hometown 1

Holga 135BC + Fujifilm Superia 200
A typical lazy morning at my hometown. The old shoplots are relics from pre-WWII era, a "living museum" as my friend calls it :-)

Lomo Beach 2

Lomo Pond

Holga 135BC + Fujifilm Superia 200
Decided to post this anyway because it shows the pond full of water hyacinths when it was prettiest. The actual pond is larger, this picture only shows about 1/3 of it. There's also an extreme light leak from the golden hour sun.

Now more than half of the flowers have already died.

Beach Lomo

Holga 135BC + Fujifilm Superia 200
Taken during an evening with stormclouds looming in the horizon. The lomo features turned out well here, blurry and a little dreamy courtesy of the plastic lens =)

A Tribute to Heroes Long Gone

Nikon D40 @ 26mm, ISO200, f4, 1/3200 sec.
My favourite picture from the memorial.

Technical Talk: Not an easy picture to take with a DSLR that doesn't have Live View function, had to twist and turn myself to get the angle =p The wind breezing through the flower bush didn't help too O_o

War Memorial, Labuan

Nikon D40 @ 18mm, ISO200, f22, 1/100 sec.

Papar Panorama

Nokia N82, PanoMan.
Click the image to view the larger version.

A quick panoramic shot of Papar town taken with PanoMan, a panoramic stitching software for mobile phones.  The large image is unedited in any way and it's quite a decent job for such a small programme, don't you think? =)

Nikon D40 @ 200mm, ISO200, f6.3, 1/160 sec.
Stumbled upon a tutorial when I was looking up on lomo, it was easy to do and managed to perk up this otherwise normal and boring shot of the flowers. I even learned a new sharpening skill! =D  Here's the tutorial:
