庭院摄影 (Backyard Photography)






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)





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….
