Warehouse shooting

Hello boys and girls, and velkom to another edition of a shooting spree :D

OK lah, I only joined a photoshoot today, no guns involved, only some Canons heh heh...

MSJ photography organised a photoshoot with the theme "Warehouse shoot" where we went and shoot at some warehouses at the KK port area. The shoot was scheduled for 3.30 pm. Anyway, here's some of the shots:

Somehow the red bricks on the right were kind of distracting, so I converted it into black and white...

and it seemed to turn out better...

Had to do some lightening on the face, because it was kinda in the shadow:

Luckily there were no ants crawling around the fence...

This shot reminds me of the Afghan Girl photo by Steve McCurry:

After that we went off to Jesselton Point to shoot some moar, but by that time everyone was quite tired from all the shooting previously.
And so with this I finish my post:

Crazy hot and cold weather

How's your sweating lately? If you have been melting every time you walk out to your front gate, you're not the only one. The temperature was up to almost 33° Celsius, and this was at night!

On the same day, it started pouring in the afternoon, so I whipped out ye not-so-olde camera and shot the rain coming down off the awning:

The weather is crazy I tell you!

Earth Hour at Nexus Resort Karambunai

Earth hour was two weeks ago, and only know then I'm posting up some shots from that day :P

I was contacted by a representative of this resort to help shoot the activities that they conducted in conjunction with Earth Hour. If you want to know more about Earth Hour, just click here.

Anyway, I managed to get to the place at around 6:40 pm, since Earth Hour starts around 8:30 p.m. For Earth Hour, all participating parties switched off their lights for one hour to use less energy and to give awareness to the coming energy crisis. OK, maybe I'm getting a bit melodramatic here, but just click on the link above, that should set you straight :D

OK, the plan was to have a bonfire on the beach and do some cultural dances around the fire for the guests, and to get the guests involved with the activities, but heaven decided to keep the resort from releasing more CO2 into the atmosphere by having a super heavy tropical storm greet us before the activities. So all the activities had to be done in the lobby of the resort.

The activities involved cultural dances, notably the Magunatip (I hope the spelling is correct) and a 3 piece live band. It's picture time:

The 3-piece band:

There were some water droplets in the frame that was caught by my flash in this next picture, because the place was raining cats and dogs and there was quite a strong wind blowing the rain in to the lobby:

Getting the guests involved in the Magunatip:

More guests enjoying the singalong:

All in all it was a sweaty experience, since I had to run around all over the place to shoot.

Oh before I forget, this is how it looked like when the lights went out (shot from a hotel room on the 5th floor):

Bad parking

Don't you just hate it when some drivers parked their car incorrectly? Especially when it comes to parking bay spaces in shopping malls. I'll let the pictures do the talking below:

This was taken a few weeks ago... We had to inch really close to the other vehicle because the rear of our vehicle was sticking out of the parking space...
