Vesak day was just around the corner and Terry asked if anyone wanted to go for a street shoot. I decided to join him since I had the time and wanted to make sure that my camera was not a sitting duck in the cabinet. (Trust me, I know the feeling because I have a Canon, nikon, Panasonic camera sitting in there). Remind me to bring out the Nikon this weekend. I miss shooting Infra-red (IR).
It was a great honor to meet Terry in person. He is a very nice and straight forward person, sharing his thoughts and his practical way of thinking. Unlike yours truly, who buys cameras like no one’s business, Terry bought a XE-2 and has only 1 lens, the 27mm. Unlike many others who would reach for the latest, his explanation reminded me that you don’t have to buy everything that comes out new to be a great photographer.
It was also a nice opportunity to visit Yueh Hai Ching Temple, near Raffles MRT. Afterall, it was Vesak Day, what better chance to take more pictures?
A short introduction, Yueh Hai Ching Temple is the oldest Teochew temple in Singapore built in 1826 by teochew sailors & traders to thank the gods for safety at sea. It was gazetted as a national monument in 28th June 1996.
I want to take this time to thank Terry for allowing me to join him and also have time to sit and chat about photography. I wish you well with God’s blessings. Let’s go out together with many more other photographers soon!
Photos were taken using a Fujifilm Xt-1 camera, 35mm Fuji lens and edited using Lightroom.
Do keep coming back for more pictures!
WIll be posting more tomorrow! Do keep a look out!
