    Seeking the Elusive 'Decisive Moment' in Foreign Cities

    Some of the photos I took during my trips to Penang and Singapore may pass as street photography, but to be honest, they were more like my feeble attempts to capture 'decisive moments' that I don't usually find at home.

    Penang Island, Malaysia by the Fisheye 2

    Pictures taken with my very first lomo-cam, the Fisheye 2 Python..yes I love reptile skin prints. I've been walking around the island with my "Orochimaru" (oh yes, I know it's funny to name your own stuff); and I've been stepping on this land for more than two decades and find it very boring from time to time until I saw it through the lens of the Fisheye 2.

    Double Meaning Trouble

    Do you agree with me that double-exposing your film means bringing trouble to yourself? Some people will describe it by saying, "Well, I just want to take a risk. I really think that it could be different in the way we see in reality." Or, some people might even say that you must have your luck and faith in your picture while you plan to the take doubles. So, which person do you agree with? The 1st, 2nd, or 3rd?

    My 2011 in Analogue: The Year My Love for Sprockets Rocketed!

    Sprocketed photos always shout to me (and others) that they're taken using 35mm film! Raw, undefined, and looks super great in almost all photos. Since the launch of Sprocket Rocket, I have never traveled without it! Landscapes, portraits, and moving vehicles are my best shots with the Sprocket Rocket. I do wedding shoots in sprockets too!

He now busy with his work but nothing can prevent him from shooting and bunny hooping with his bicycle!

    George Town, with streets full of old, mixed cultural, faded colours and crumbed walls of shophouses, temples and buildings. Featured by elderly Chinese shopkeepers and residents, Indian food stalls, uniquely-decorated trishaws, homeless citizen, backpackers and tourists from around the world that suddenly appear at glances of your eyes.

    Peaceful and Relaxing. I stay in this very peaceful and relaxing village- Kampung Sungai Lembu ( in Malay language). In English, It means Cow River Village. Why they using the name? Long time ago, they always see the cows crossing the river, so they Named as Cow River Village.
