The inaugural Summer Youth Olympic is coming to Singapore and like all modern Olympic Games, there is the friendly mascot to represent the big sporting event. Now, let’s meet Lyo and Merly the official mascots of the 2010 Summer Youth Olympic.
Young and full of energy, Lyo is a stylish lion cub with red wavy mane. Merly is a youthful and friendly female merlion* without the scaly fish tail. (*The merlion is a mythical creature with the head of a lion and body of a fish.) Close up, you can even see a Singapore island shape on Lyo’s paw. Both the mascots have close association with the host country as Singapore is also known as the “Lion City” and the Merlion is a popular iconic symbol. For those who want to bring Lyo and Merly home, you can always check out the designated Youth Olympic super stores at Orchard Road just in front of Takashimaya Shopping Centre or get them online.
The Summer Youth Olympic Games will be held in Singapore from 14-26 August 2010. The event will showcase some of the finest and brightest young athletes between the ages of 14 and 18 from the competing countries. As the date draws nearer, let’s look forward to a great show.

As for me, shooting live music shows with the Petzval Lens is one of those small pleasures.
Summer is full of color so using black and white film might not be the first thing that comes to mind. Yet the summer sun works out beautifully on black and white film. Like to give it a try? I've come across the best light at the train station during rush hour!
