last images from nepal

i can claim lethargy and POISD (post overseas internship stress disorder)* but the truth is i just don’t really feel like writing. i hope you enjoy the images though.

sepia arcadia

while in pokhara, i cycled beyond the tourist haven of lakeside and found a different kind of haven.

farmer crossing with raft and pull-rope

glowing stream & mountain view

fish farm

grazing horses

pokhara is a place blessed with pastoral beauty and i am looking to photograph more of it on my return, which i hope will be soon.

manufacturing a landscape

from top to bottom: view from roof of a school building in patan; view from summit hotel on a bandh day (which usually means clear skies, since there are no cars and other 4-wheelers on the road to foul up the air); 2nd floor of madhuban guest house in kathmandu.

just a thought expressed in 3 pictures. could be the stirrings of a personal project, we’ll see how.

how a droplet of blood became a torrent

was on my way to punggol yesterday when i caught this on the train. it was a strange sight.

was at punggol beach in the evening when amos fell and cut his palm on some rocks while walking out into the sea. he managed to save his camera though, which was rather heroic. it seems like people value their possessions more than themselves – i once heard a story of how this musician fell while going on stage with her guitar. she broke her hips and the guitar? never left her hand.

after that pamy’s dad fetched us to a clinic, where amos got the cut cleaned out. thankfully it was not that bad to the point where stitches were required.

amos getting a tetanus shot. now you know how doctors make so much money, especially the pushy ones.

latest update is that amos is fine and has removed the bandage.

now for some happy photos from punggol.

railway revisited

went out to bukit timah railway today to shoot in in the fading light. i was hoping to get the sweet, peach-pink light that i saw the previous time i was there shooting dapper. no such luck though. oh well, that’s the way things are i guess.

i was nearly hit by the train above while setting up my tripod beside the tracks. didn’t expect it to come from the direction it did. thankfully, i heard the horn in time to get out of the way and crouch. as the train passed by, something just compelled me to point my camera at it and shoot. good thing that happened.

anyway if you are thinking of shooting at the railway, a train will pass by the station at about 6.15 – 6.20 pm. try to make sure you are well clear of the tracks then. another thing to avoid would be the guard. he usually comes out of his post in the station to switch the tracks at about 7 or so. stay out of his sight then or risk being chased away.

the obligatory detail shot.

i saw this kiddie chair as i was walking along the tracks towards the station. it was a strange sight. you could just imagine some 2 year-old, all strapped in, giggling and pointing as trains speed by.

stayed till it was nearly dark to try some long exposures. this one was about 10 seconds, i believe. i like the way the colours contrast.
