Shutterbug, shuttering along XD

This is where computers go to die…

Run away…with me

Brighter than sunshine

Just some photographs I took while in school using my new camera 🙂 I am in no means professional photographer. I am, however, a professional shutterbug! I’d take photos of anything and everything. I end up not using a lot and wasting a lot of space but I get a thrill out of the click-click of a camera 🙂

Eye Can See You

OK, I admit it was a lame attempt at an appropriate pun but with a title like that how can you resist LOOKING at my post :>

I’ve just recently purchased my very first DSLR camera. As a closet shutterbug, I was elated, excited, over the moon and <add witty hyperbole here>. Though I’m not really into professional photography, my friends can attest to my habit of randomly taking photographs of random things.

Now, I can do that without the awkward stares because people would think DSLR = professional photographer = randomly taking photos = OK.

But before I let my trusty point and shoot to rest, I’d like to pay an homage to its greatness. My Sony digital camera is no lightweight when it comes to quality photos. Truth be told, I probably don’t really need a DSLR because my digicam captures great photos. All my pictures thus far have come from my Sony camera and I’ve never complained yet.

To showcase its awesomeness even more, here are my two favorite shots. While waiting for my family inside a hot, stuffy car I decided to play around with pink ranger, as I secretly call my camera. With the close focus feature and my high tolerance for bright lights, I attempted to take a photo of my eye. Here are the results.

Creepy and yet wonderful. Who would think that these were taken by a 10 Megapixel camera. OK, so maybe experts can tell but to me, these are awesome photos shot by an awesome camera that I love.

So maybe I won’t put away pink ranger for good. I’d still use her for random days out and only take out red ranger, my DSLR, when there’s a special occasion.

 

On Our Way Back Home (Don’t forget the ice cream)

Aww our last day in Singapore 😦 Sad sad. There was so many things I wanted to do! If only I could’ve gone exploring on my own. In the morning, we went along orchard road again to do some last minute shopping. We wanted to take the bunso out on a walking tour of Orchard road.

Here we are at Takashimaya Shopping Center. This mall is huge! There are like 3 malls within this one mall. It took up almost a whole block Orchard Rd. My brother and I got a bit tired so we goofed around while the parents went shopping.

I bet everyone who has been to Singapore knows this spot. It’s the basement of Takashimaya. Every time I’ve been here there’s been a huge sale right in this spot. Before, it was children’s toys. Now, it’s bags, shoes and belts – both for men and women.Here’s my cute brother again posing with some of Singapore’s most popular athletes.

On our way back, we headed to Cold Stone and had some before-lunch desserts. I got the apple pie ala mode and my brother made his own combination using chocolate.

The day went by way too quickly and we found ourselves waiting for our ride to the airport. Goodbye Concorde Hotel! While waiting, I got creative (read: crazy) with our camera’s close focus feature. I took photos of everything I could. I even snapped some of my arm where I could see the hairs and the tiny tiny creases. I didn’t post them though, you guys might find it too weird. 😛

Still went with the close focus in the airport. The flower shown above was actually found inside the airport. We got there too early so we had to wait for the counter to open. Below is a picture of the kids lining up way ahead of time, just to make certain we were first. Not to worry, they got paid in McDonald’s.

See all those people? Yup! All pinoys heading home.

After getting in, we quickly found a free (!) leg and foot reflexology massage contraption. I could’ve stayed there the whole time.

Alas, all good things must come to an end. We boarded the plane and left for Manila, sweet Manila.

I hope I can go back to Singapore with my friends or my boyfriend next time. I felt like there was so much more to be seen and done. Time to start saving up I guess 🙂
