Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D

•October 14, 2015 • Leave a Comment

Playing The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the Nintendo 64 is a distant (albeit vivid) memory from many years ago and re-living the experience in its new updated form on the 3DS was loads of fun. It’s ironic how much better this game looks on the small screen of a portable device, but this really is the best way to play this classic as of now.

Visiting Kotor Bay in Montenegro

St. Nicholas Church in Kotor; Montenegro

Photographically speaking as well as personal reasons, visiting Kotor Bay in Montenegro was one of the best trips I’ve had in my life. The scenery and the architecture completely blew me away and the atmosphere of the place was truly one of a kind.

Visualising a futuristic London in Star Trek Into Darkness

In an otherwise visually impressive movie, this scenic perspective of a futuristic London from within the Star Trek universe seems superficially thought out and doesn’t really have much ‘London’ to it.

The “Problem” of Raindrops on the Lens

The Shard in London

When I first came across with getting raindrops on my lens while taking pictures, I really did consider it a problem. When it happened, I thought to myself: “I have to wipe the lens, take another shot and hope for the best”. These days I’m much more open minded to this “problem” as I gradually realised that raindrops on the lens surface could potentially define the image instead of ruining it. So I thought I’d share some results here.

Work in Progress

This picture of my laptop with a nice cup of hot coffee in my favorite Breaking Bad mug is the only photo I captured for a while. Although I miss photography a lot, when I get some free time I always seem to choose to edit and organise the images from a recent trip to Montenegro. I’m getting there, but the three days in and around Kotor Bay resulted in a lot of images that I’m hoping to put online soon.

2014 has been…

…pretty good. I should probably say that the highlight of the year was having one of my images (see above) commended in Take a View Landscape Photographer of the Year competition. This was indeed a really cool experience and I really enjoyed attending the exhibition opening night at London Waterloo station where I met some great photographers and got more than just a little tipsy on red wine…

Crypt in Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin

•November 5, 2014 • 2 Comments

I’ve been in the cathedral crypt in Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin twice now, but between the two visits I upgraded to a full frame sensor camera from APSC, which made all the difference. The high ISO combined with wide f/2.8 and shooting RAW files meant that the results were really clean and usable. The harsh truth sometimes is that equipment matters more than we’d like to admit. On my second visit, I was able to photograph the place in spite of the fact that available light is scarce. This is the largest crypt of its kind in Britain or Ireland and the atmosphere is so that I thought I might find the Red Room from Twin Peaks in there somewhere.
