My niece pointed this flower with bug, she wanted me to take the photograph so this is for her :))

Edited:

I just want to make something clear here, that is difficult to shot bug when you’re with kids around and this is the closer I can get considering the lens I used for this shot, it’s not a macro lens anyway. I also used the lowest F number as low I can get from this lens that moment.

Plus I wanted to shot prettiness of the flowers and the other interesting one that isn’t blooming yet as well so I used this angle. Anyway I shot a couple shots from a few others different angle as well, this is the best one I really like.

Thank you all for constructive comments.

It was a great moment, but I wish I had better lens for this kind of shot.

Nothing special. I was on my way to the book store and saw the lamp because it reminded me with Harry Potter :))

This shot taken at the same place with my previous shot. The sky was so beautiful that day. No yelow or gray sky, simple a nice day for outdoor shooting. I believe we won’t be having this beautiful sky in summer soon 🙁

This is my very 1st shot Sport theme ever. I was feeling bored and decided to go drive to the place I’ve never visit before and found bunch fellow of the Surfer at the beach. The beach is not really a nice beach, because there wasn’t really a sand like the usual beach but instead the beach covered with zillion of big stones.

It was really fun that afternoon but the wind is so strong and bit chilly . I caught a cold later that night.

Anyhoo, I’m lemming new glass for sure.

Kind of out of topic here. I found myself digging around my server and surprised to see my old photoblog still exist lol. I think I remember the server crashed once before and I have forgotten about the blog.

Looking at my old newbie photos put me to shame, I felt embarrassed haha. I guess I didn’t read any Photography books before.

Now, I remember why I stopped Photoblogging. It was after my grandma in-law passed away, I lost interest and got so busy with going abroad school application.

Well, you live and learn something everyday. Time passes by and I’m going to keep practicing and educating myself more about Photography as I’m willing to spend more time in the field rather than sitting in front of my computer now.

So practice make things better for sure, period.

Fua fua dome is like a huge trampoline for children to play. I think you can find this in every big park in Japan.

Another flower shot from me.
It’s Spring, I can’t help it! They are blooming everywhere and I just couldn’t let them get away :))
