One World

A small feather flew over and settle here on the surface of water, of an otherwise very common pond. Afternoon sun, the roof of a lovely pavilion, a man with a camera. A picture.

Coffee Break

A shot made in my office, it was a usual afternoon, setting sun cast its light throught the slits of the blind of the large window of my office, on to the wall, and the wood paneling, form an interesting sight. Interesting it is, but also a rather common sight when taking a coffee break.
Shot with Panasonic GF-1 with Olympus 50mm 1:2 Macro ED, mounted to GF-1 using the Olumpus MMF-1 adapter.  I was a long term 4/3 user, and the Olympus 50/2 Macro is always one of my favorite lens - in fact the macro lens is alwasy an important part of any of my camera/lens system.  I like the macro lens because of their nice contrast, sharpness, usually right size, and of course, when shooting portrait, they don't limit you much when you want to get closer.

Shower Room

A seasoned photographer is usually blessed with the ability of making every image in front of him a picture! And it is the best reward being a photographer.
Shot with a compact Panasonic GF-1 and the 20/1.7 lens - an image seeing everyday (well, almost) in my shower room. The waterdrops on the glass shield, morning sunlight, and the shadow of the waterdrops on the tile floor.

This is an image I wake up to see every morning, the rising sun cast the shadow of the plants on my balcany. The shadow of the leaves creates an interesting illusion on the curvely fabric, constantly changes when the breeze from the aircondition blows; as those leaves also moves along with the wind. It is an all-too-familar image, while it is never the same from moment to moment.   Taken with Panasonic GF-1.

A picture does not only register the moment, it also record time.  This image, a rather close up shot with Panasonic GF-1 and 20mm f/1.7, a common building column exposed in outdoor, and a plain wall behind it.  Years of dusts and rains, leaves some all-too-common trails as it is almost everywhere.  Somehow, compose carefully, and the help of light and shadow, you get image such as this with graphical interests. Shot at the beautiful Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiangmai.

Portrait of a tree

One of the most valuable asset in Thailand, which most Thai do not realize, is the sun. It just makes everything looks more interesting.  Walking inside Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiangmai, you would have the luxury of slowly appreciate the interesting combination of the light and shadow.
Captured with a compact Panasonic GF-1, the shadow of the tree cast an interesting image on the wall, one of the most common view inside the lovely property, also one of the most neglected.

Taken at Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, Chiangmai, Thailand. An image of an otherwise very common column of the lovely Coloniel Wing of the property, the afternoon sun cast its light on the column, and I just snap the image.
