Super overdue pics from the one and only rally we attended during the election season. It was definitely an awesome experience, immersing ourselves in the electric atmosphere and capturing these iconic moments. The whole place was literally rocking. All of the pictures were taken with my Diana Mini. I took the opportunity to shoot in bulb mode and also a few multiple exposures. I obviously need more practice.
#1 Jady’s cute lil bum. Sorry buddy you’re not coming along.
#2 Trying double exposure at night. Idea was to take a shot of the massive crowd and overlap with a shot of the “No Stopping” sign. No stopping the masses, geddit? But seems like I overexposed the 2nd shot. You can hardly make out the crowd shot. And the “No” is not in the frame. Dang.
#3 Cheeky smile from the ever cheeky binbin. 😀
#4 Baby blue is the new black. Some funky double exposure at work here too.
#5 The legendary 500kg hammer. Overheard some uncle asking his friend to come find him at the “gor pa kilo dan dui”. True story.
#6 This photo screams, “We were there at GE 2011 rally. *wide grins*”
#7 Let’s go crazy and wave your flags like you just don’t care! Wheeeeeeeee
#8 The 6th member of the Worker’s Party Aljunied Team. Pursuant to Section 49, Subsection 7E, Paragraph A of the Parliamentary Elections Act, I declare you da big winner!
Well, I was having a hard time thinking how to conclude this post, then I realised what better way to do it than in the words of Singapore’s founding father..
“If you believe in democracy, you must believe in it unconditionally. If you believe that men should be free, then, they should have the right of free association, of free speech, of free publication. Then, no law should permit those democratic processes to be set at nought.”
– Lee Kuan Yew as an opposition leader, April 27, 1955
Hi Lomo Lord from above, I have a confession to make…
Please forgive me. For I have sinned terribly by editing some of my photos.
In my defense, I did not add all those fanciful effects. Nor did I make my skin smoother or my chest bigger. I merely used that darn crop tool. I’ve been filled with guilt ever since that day I started.Yes I understand. I might as well throw my Lomo cams away. Just get a decent digital camera and edit the pictures or an iPhone Lomo app.
But..but… It’s all because of my absent mindedness, my fat fingers and the ultra wide lens of my Superheadz UWS.
ARGHHH WHY DO I ALWAYS GET MY FINGERS IN THE SHOT?!?!
All those awesome pics, ruined by those pesky pudgy intruders. I guess my only hope of redemption is to show the world all of my failures and imperfection.
Almighty Lomo Lord!! Please forgive me!
Blooper #1: Left index finger decides to get in the act of capturing cars flying by underneath me.
Blooper #2: This time is knuckles’ time to shine while I was busy trying to catch Jady sniffing around the pseudo Berlin Wall.
Blooper #3: Nice shot of the reservoir ruined by the right index this time around. Bummer.
Blooper #4: Well I have no freaking idea what fingers are those. Thumb? Index?? How did I even get them there???
Blooper #5: Clear skies. Blue sea. Sore thumb. Perfect.
Blooper #6: Fingers goes Kelong visiting
Blooper #7: Knuckles and friends.
Blooper #8: I’m saving the best for the last. Look at this. A whole freaking fist. I probably didn’t sinned here. This pic right here is uncroppable.
There is pretty more where those came from. In order to prevent fellow UWS owners and myself from making the same mistake, I have come up with something.
Hopefully, it will prevent others from falling by the wayside like me and I will finally be able to gain closure.
Nay… It’s not a new design. In fact, I have not been working on any new tee designs for the past week. Been busy on a side project, helping a (pain in an ass of a) friend do some simple illustrations for his website. Will post the final outcome once everything is done. Stay tuned for some 81 x 80 of pixels goodness.
On a non design related note, weekends have been great. Managed to bring Jady out for a walk, took some pics on my new toy. Hopefully the prints will end up okay, especially since it’s my 1st ever roll of film.
The poor fat dog ended up pretty zonked out after barely an hour. Tried giving her water during the walk but she acted tough and refuse to have any. In the end…
had to cool her off with a wet towel, giving her massages in the air con room with the fan blowing at the fastest speed.
That’s my Saturday sorted. Sunday night was spent celebrating Ruixin’s birthday with Chin Chun at a Jap restaurant. Awesome food and all. Been a while since I seen both of them, did some catching up. Some cos somebody was too lazy to go through her long stories.
Anyhoo. Happy 18th RX! (Or so she claims)
The tail bites back. A closer look over here. Uploaded on redbubble and for sale in a selection of colors over here. Not too sure which color tee this looks best in. Maybe grey brush strokes isn’t such a great idea…
I’ve always been pretty amused by the silly antics of dogs, especially when they chase their own tails. Of course Jady does that too. And gets extremely excited much to my amusement. I will love to see the expression on her face if her tail fought back. RARR!
