Tree at Michaels Park

•March 1, 2011 • 1 Comment

The fields and playgrounds are usually where all the attention lies.

However, not too far away from the footpath stands this impressive tree which carries a couple of swings.

Here are two shots from slightly different angles, landscape and portrait – not too sure which one works better, but personally I’m leaning more against the portrait version.

Sunset from Mt Eden

•February 28, 2011 • 1 Comment

This is a series of photos showing the view from Mt Eden (Auckland) with the sun setting quickly. I’m new to photographing sunsets, but so far the advice has been to sort your gear/settings quickly and plan ahead as the window of opportunity is very short. We arrived in Mt Eden around 7:30pm and with clicks minutes apart from each other, one can already see the difference in colour.
Will probably need to make a few more visits to perfect the shots.

“Haam Sui Gaau” Salt-Water Stuffed-Dumpling

•November 16, 2010 • 1 Comment

Being a huge fan of yum char, I happened to snap up a few of my favorite Dim Sums. This one is the Salted Water Dumpling, according to Wikipedia: deep fried oval-shaped dumpling made with rice-flour and filled with pork and chopped vegetables. The rice-flour surrounding is sweet and sticky, while the inside is slightly salty.

Michael Parks School Summer Fair

•November 11, 2010 • Leave a Comment

Given that it was such a beautiful day, the whole family decided to visit the annual Summer Fair held at Michaels Park School.

The attractions are entertainment, food, stalls and mini games for kids. It was also a good opportunity for parents that were interested in the school, to view the completed projects that the students worked so hard on.

This was one of my favorite stalls. There were flags of all sorts, with vibrant colors that swayed in the breeze.

Michaels Park Sunset

Cooling down after a brisk jog, I snapped this photo with the sun going down behind the tree.
The gaps between the leaves and branches allow sunlight to shine onto the footpath and the field
