William Close at the Singapore Night Festival 2014

One of the many highlights of this year’s Singapore Night Festival is getting the chance to watch William Close perform on his giant Earth Harp in person. His music is very new to me but I thoroughly enjoyed his rendition of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata and absolutely love his idea of a Drum Jacket. Something to think about for wearable techies!

Sony A7 / in Myanmar

There is a lot to like about the mirrorless ‘revolution’ in camera technology and with the Sony A7, we now have the full-frame sensor option. In short, the Sony A7 is an awesome piece of kit.

I’ve written before about my dislike of having to lug around heavy and bulky DSLRs when I travel. The A7 fits just nice in terms of my needs for a travel camera. Combined with the kit lens, it is still slightly smaller than the D5100 which is in itself, a small DSLR.

I had a great time taking this beast of a camera out and I think I have already found the near-perfect gadget for my travels. I’ll just need to save up for the Sony Sonnar T* FE 35mm F2.8 now..

Kampung Buangkok / The Village [Part III]

DSC04703_buangkok_azman
The final part of my photo journey around the small village of Kampung Buangkok. Part 1 and Part 2 here. This post is of the village itself. I feel almost like a voyeur trying to peek into the houses of the rarest of places in Singapore. From the looks of things, the residents are probably used to the peering and curious glances and stares of ‘outsiders’ by now. Untended and long untouched objects amongst the foliage create a delicious blend of intersecting lines and chaos.
