Revisiting Opera House at Dawn

The Sun

The Reflection

The Sky

It is one clear morning at Sydney Harbour. The sunrise is always energising. And it still amazes me that there are more of the Opera House scenes to be photographed.

There was an episode in my life that I managed graveyard shifts at a 24-hour restaurant in this tourist spot and finished at 7 am. Although it was an odd hour, I got a chance to absorb the tranquility of the harbour without the crowd. It was truly inspiring. Still is.

Some of my favourites photos were taken around this area at dawn including urban, landscape, wildlife, and even abstract.

Songkran Like No Next One

It was planned when I finished the contract job in DC by the end of March to be able to get to Bangkok by the time of Thai New Year celebration. And I party so as if there was no next year.

There have been some concerns, as always with decencies of water fight, the fatality of the road tolls, and this year, Southeast Asia is facing a severe drought. That would be that the killer, which bring the festival down.

Nonetheless, I go out all three days to the three major spots in Bangkok: Silom, Royal City Avenue, and Khao Sarn Road. I  play with pano in iPhone that gives a jiggering effect when panning the phone around with lots of moving people. It portrays the wild scene nicely, I find. Click each image to see the details of deform humans. Continue reading Songkran Like No Next One

Out to Space Year Twelve: the Beyond

April 2015 – March 2016

This is the final post of the series. Out to Space has come to year twelve. And most posts of the year are what I’ve been looking back in those years of the blog. Why am I doing this? Not only because it reveals to me why I blog but also gives some directions where it could go next.

It started from a photoblog as the platform that I discovered my passion. The following year laid down the foundation of photography. It got some decent exposures in year three (2006/2007) and led to the explosions of the photography works in the year after, which I started to get on videos. Then, there was the transformation to video when I got into College of Fine Arts and the intensity of to finish the school. After that, I was mentally and physically worn out. And the blog became hollow. It got worse in the four years I lived in Bangkok. It was almost void.

Changing the scene to Washington DC helps reviving it. Actually, this is my New Year resolution for 2016—to go through the blog and see how far it has gone. I finally got a chance to clean up broken photo posts in the early years when it was in Moveable Type. Continue reading Out to Space Year Twelve: the Beyond

Eight Months in DC on Instagram

In the early days in Washington DC, when people asked me “What do you think about DC?” I rolled my eyes and sighed because it was just too soon to tell plus the stress of the relocation. Now, with eight months of my job contract is over and I’m about to leave the city, I can look back and see what I can come up with. Photo is the usual visual diary to document I find in everyday life and Instagram is the usual channel for sharing it.

Here are some of the things I find in eight months living in Washington DC.

Beers…craft beers
