My eyes caught the blue sky reflected on the water while the other side of the sky looked grayish. It was a strange day with strange weather.

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

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.

This shot probably would be much better if I shoot it before sun down, but I guess I can’t and don’t really have the time to wait that long. So I always go out whenever I can and don’t limit myself of sticking up with rules.

On my way back home from the beach. The bridge was closed and while waiting for the bridge to open again I noticed the orange yellow tourist boat from the car window.
It looks like ready to go, because I can hear the engine sound from where I stand. It was kinda hard to get the clear shot because the wind was strong, especially on this season in Japan. Tripod did help a bit but it wasn’t enough so I used the multiple shots option again.

Again, I used the Vivid setting on my camera, I’m hooked!

Ready, on three!

It was another quick stop, don’t know what’s the name of the place. The wind was so strong that day, I can barely get myself stand properly so I had to hold on to something before I took the a few shots.
