Old Man in Void Deck Staring into the Void.

Was at Toa Payoh when I saw this old man at a void deck of a HDB flat.

Around the old man were some stray cats, so I took some shots of the cats initially and later on, I swapped to use my tele-photo [70-300mm IS] and turned on "LiveView" to take some shots without the subject knowing...

I need a shave..

The world can wait, let me finish this puff first..

Tarik Sahaja!

Singapore F1 eve of training race

Since I do not have any Singapore F1 2011 tickets, I couldn't take pictures of the actual race.

Well, the tracks are all lit up on the eve of the first race and I thought I try my luck to see if I can walk into the area.

I'd always drive past the ECP Rochor exit and there is a small footpath along the exit that allows a good shot to the starting line.. And since the roads were closed that night, I had to park quite some distance away and walk towards the highway..

Here are the pictures I took at 2am on 22 Sept 2011.

I also tried some creative effects with Gimp to create the tilt-shift [ toy camera ] effect.

Instructions can be found here.
The result of this effect makes everything looks like miniature. See pic below.
