One of the side benefits of having kids is that they have all sorts of things laying around that you, as an adult, just wouldn't. Like bubble sauce!


A few weeks ago my son was out playing, so I grabbed his bubble sauce and started messing around in the garden. I'd done it before (see here and here), but my son was wielding the magic wand that time. This time, I was running madly between creating bubbles and then photographing them, all on my little ownsome! It was mayhem, but a lot of fun and this image was the best of the bunch.


I'll add that this is pretty much straight out of the camera. I ran it through Photoshop for a crop and some jiggery-pokery on the colour, but not much.


Small milestones:

Yay - my first photo to reach 100 favs!


Many thanks to everyone! I appreciate each and every comment :-)

This great creation was at the Ellerslie Flower Show, but sadly I did not record the name of the creator.

Red Planet, Paria/Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness, Arizona


Simply an amazing display of light at sunrise over the bizarre sandstone world deep in the heart of the remote Paria/Vermillion Cliffs Wilderness. I camped here for three days in order to be on location as a storm pushing cross the west finally brought dramatic clouds to the Colorado Plateau.

This is 3 exposures blended together using my advanced Photoshop tonality control and multiple exposure blending techniques. I produced a video detailing these techniques, it's available here:


Sean Bagshaw and I spent a couple mornings in this area. The light was beautiful as it bathed the landscape. People may not believe me when I tell them there has been no saturation added, in fact I had to tone down the reds, because they were too intense after I added some contrast.


Thanks for commenting!

I just love to twist the world with my camera. I never know exactly what the result will be when I put the B+W 10 stop ND filter in front of the Sigma 10-20mm. This time, the 6 minutes exposure really twisted my world.... and I love it :))



Comments and critique are as always welcome. Let me hear your opinion, why do you like this, or even better, how would you approach this scenery. Give me your thoughts... not just a Wow!... only then I can improve :))



In and out of Explore, thanks to all for comments and faves :))

For Macro Mondays: Spots/Dots


This alien planet exhibits a rugged and textured blue terrain that is punctuated by black dots that appear to occur in a regular pattern. The terrain supports the growth of large, long-stemmed plants whose defining features include brownish dot-shaped heads that are likewise covered with patterns of dots. Scientists have been puzzled as to the origin of all of these dots, and the natives of the planet have not been helpful. “Dots for us to know and you to find out” is all that they will say.



Here is stop number two on this week's little roadtrip. I've been hearing about this place for years, and now I can say that everything I've heard is true. It is AMAZING!!! Bisti Badlands, in New Mexico. It's huge! It's spread out. If you don't know where you're going, you can wander all day. And, if you don't pay attention, you can be lost all day. You have to walk in about two miles before you start to see anything interesting, but once you do… WOW! I mean… Look at this place! I know I keep saying it, but seriously, this looks like another planet. It's hard to believe my own eyes when I see places like this. Yes, this really does exist, and yes, it really does look like this.


Anyway, this was taken at dusk. We had to hike back in the dark, which was a little scary. It's easy enough to get lost in that place during the day. Everything looks the same. It's like hiking in a giant maze.

Planet Hollywood sign on their retail store in DHS on Sunset Boulevard.

A bit of an experimental pic for me here.... taken from the 7th floor inside a parking garage, just seeing a slice of the world outside. I thought it was a neat coincidence that the opening lined up perfectly with the sign for Planet Hollywood next door.

Here's what Planet Tree is turning into.

The volcanic beach below the Jökulsárlón glacier, Iceland. Scattered with glacial ice, this place is just amazing, like walking on another planet..

Title inspired by the 1984 science fiction film "Dune" written and directed by David Lynch, based on the 1965 Frank Herbert novel.


These are snow dunes.

Night shot, taken at Lake Agnel (2,300 m) in the Gran Paradiso National Park (Italy).

I've reached this place hiking for 15 km with snow shoes, then I’ve mounted my tent for the night.


This image has a dual lighting:

from above - the moon

from the right - the lake's lighthouse (turned on for all night, even though there was not a soul for miles).


This side lighting also generated, on the left, the shadow of me plus my camera on tripod while taking the photo... I initially saw this as a disturbing element, but then I thought "why not?!" :-) At the very least this provides a little connection to reality in a landscape that seems actually taken from another planet.


The shades in pink are the result of the encounter with the orange color of the beacon with the white light of the moon.

By the way, the little dot on the right of the moon is planet Jupiter.

Alright, well I am willing to jump on the Prince sentimentally bandwagon (give me a couple of beers and anything is possible). Especially since it is still officially Earth Day here. Never been much a fan of his music but, this is one piece I have always loved.

Oh, also... I consider his appearance at that Superbowl halftime show, in the torrential rain, to be one of the most amazing performances ever!

The photos are mine.

The pieces of chess are arranged randomly for artistic effect, therefore they do not represent a real play of chess.

This is a photo I took from a plane a few weeks ago (we were flying over Switzerland at 10 km above the ground!). I've repainted several parts of it. Many thanks in advance for your constructive feedback.


More facts: The mountains look rather small because we were very high, but they are huge, many of them exceed 4,000 m with the highest, Monte Rosa, reaching to 4,638 metres (15,217 ft), and there are also numerous glaciers including several of the largest in the Alps, such as the Aletsch Glacier, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 2001 with a length of about 24 km and covering more than 120 square kilometres!)

Never Let Your Dream Go By


A poem by Peter S. Quinn


Never let your dreams go by,

Never let your dream die;

Nothing here goes on forever,

Like, 'I love you always so'.

You should always feel and know,

But our ways are sometimes blind;

Every thought that lives and flows,

Like the time that grows and goes.

Opened doors are left behind,

Just as time passes down and flies;

Everything in life here dies,

But every soul goes together.


There are laughter’s in the air,

There are cries everywhere;

We have time so we can try,

Never let our dream go by.

Never lose what you have found,

Take your dream to a solid ground;

Reach a mountain reach the sky,

Reach the top before you die.


Never let your dreams go by,

Have a time and have a try;

Opened doors are left behind,

On the mountains you shall find,

Those open doors go everywhere.

I have been away from the social media world, except for the news of my new baby boy which was born last week. The new bub has kept me quite occupied and I only found the time to look at my photos and process them.


This shot was taken 2 weeks ago during the trip to Bangkok. There, I had a pleasure to meet Beboy Photostock and Sabine Alphonsine, the talented and down to earth photographer. It was great to be reunited with Chow Chin Hwee as well after almost one year we didn't see each other. Thanks to Felix Indarta who came and accompany me on this trip. Daniel K. Cheong for hanging out with us couple of nights. And finally to new friends in Bangkok as well, Nik Cyclist, Alan Tee and Ability Riddle.


This shot was taken from the building where they shot the Hangover Part 2. It was taken from the balcony of our accomodation there. It was taken with my seldom used Zenitar 16mm fish eye lens. A blend of 2 exposures, using luminosity masking in Photoshop CS6 and completed using some Nik Software Tools.
