庭院摄影 (Backyard Photography)




邻居们在庭院周围种了许多花花草草,引来了不少小生命在此寻花问柳。

小蝴蝶不请自来,在内子栽种的花丛中自助享用各种花汁,与生俱来的吸管,轻易的随意品尝甘甜花蜜。

小蚂蚁不甘落后,也学着在花芯里寻觅蜜糖,无奈先天不足,吸不着蜜糖,反被花粉缠身,弄得狼狈万分。小蚂蚁呀小蚂蚁,还是安守本分,回地库里和同伴们分工合作,分享食物吧!

太阳花明艳照人,蚱蜢情侣在此缠绵了一夜,留下了刚脱壳的小蚱蜢在此,没看清楚之下,我还把小蚱蜢错当为一片落叶呢。

庭院微距摄影,在小小生命中寻获大大乐趣。。。

Backyard photography is one of the most convenient ways to explore photography. What you need to do is to have many plants and flowers in your backyard or front garden, every weekend you’ll be able to observe diverse forms of life activities here.

With a basic dslr body and a macro lens, the opportunity to explore life in your backyard is endless.

Over this weekend, I accompanied a Small Branded Swift butterfly around who was sipping the afternoon nectar with its natural straw. I then followed a black ant that was trying to make some Nyonya kuih with natural ingredient from the garden, but ended up with its body covered with pollen. Finally I visited the sunflower home and found a newly born grasshopper baby that had just emerged from the white shell.

山城怡保 (Ipoh’s Mountainous Scene)



怡保是岳父的故乡。除了美食之外,最爱这里的山峦。

暮色低垂时,薄雾笼罩着远方的山脉,望着窗外的树木与民居,与远方的山脉有层次的重叠着,这宁静的山城景色,对山城人来说也许再普通不过,对于不居住在这里的人却有点不食人间烟火的感觉。

在横街海鲜饭店用晚餐,爆炒烧肉,马来占炒野菜与炒蚌等家乡菜肴都美味得不得了。之后,在路边停车之处发现天泛红霞,昏暗的街灯,远方的山的灰暗影子,与一排不甚起眼的店屋,即带出了小镇独有的浪漫感觉。

把不起眼的事物与景象用心观察,就会发现不起眼其中的特别。。。

Ipoh is the hometown of my father in law. Other than the tasty food it is famous for, I especially like the mountainous landscape here.

Both the images here were shot with the mountain in the background, which adds interest to a minimalist composition. The foggy weather also added some mood in the otherwise boring looking scene.

One of the interestingness of photography is one has to explore for beauty in the daily life scene which may not be readily noticeable if we do not feel and see the surrounding with our heart….
