twilight and lights

twilight and lights

this was taken three weeks ago along Orchard Rd. my bus is actually behind one of the new malls around, 313 Somerset. what caught my eye was the lovely sunset happening but since i'm not on the front row of the bus, i had to make do with the view from my seat. good thing that it is quite reflected on the mall's facade. and i didn't notice that even the bus lights were reflected too! :D

Nevada/Arizona Sky

Sky Watch #5
It was at this time, June 2005, after taking a lot of shots while on a long drive from the Grand Canyon back home to California that I discovered my love for drive by shooting.

This was taken if I'm not mistaken on Highway 40 in Nevada or Arizona. It's been a long time ago, cant remember exactly what state I was on at this time, but I thought this was still on the Arizona side. I'm thankful I found this uploaded on Flickr.

Field of Sunflower

It was nearing triple digit temperature that summer day when we passed by this field of sunflowers somewhere in the northern part of the state, while we were traversing Interstate 5.

This is all the close up I could get given the drive by conditions.

Sky Watching while Driving by

This stretch of Highway 4 from the city of Hercules to the city of Martinez, in the San Francisco Bay area is to me one of my favorite drives because of its lovely rolling hills.

California Driving

Love road trips around the big state of California, especially in its many parks - this one's in Sequoia National Park - and of course drive by shooting whatever I pass by.

it's supposed to be a sunny day

it's supposed to be a sunny day


taken this morning in the bus on my way to work. i was trying my best to take a nap but i couldn't as i was hungry (i don't normally have breakfast except for coffee) and when i looked out, the sky was cloudy. i used a fake lomo app for this :)

Let's Go To The Pulga

The beauty of drive by shooting for me is that sometimes the images serve as a reminder for places I needed to check out. Like the flea market that I did not know existed near my area.

As The Road Curves

I just love to take photos of roads, straight, curvy, wide, narrow - all kinds. Here's a curvy one at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada.

Cucina en Italia

cucina

No, I don't speak Italian but since it's very much similar to Spanish I thought this would how one says "Kitchen in Italy."

This photo was taken around 7:30 p.m. on our way to Lignano (bus ride)...summers really have longer days right? I'm not sure though if the old man is reading an evening paper...

The Colosseum

incidental sunrise

Photobucket


this was the earlier sunrise photo that i took after a night out. the scenery caught my attention despite the lack of sleep. i immediately took my phone and took a shot of this then i fumbled to get my other camera from my bag and took this shot. the cab driver tried to drive slowly after realising that i'm trying my best to capture this moment :D

Fishing and Sail-by Shooting

Husband and his buddies went fishing off the Farallon Islands. They left early when it was dark. I don't know if this was taken on the way out of the bay or on the way back in. Regardless, I am grateful that he brought the camera on his fishing trip he was able to shoot this as they were about to go under the bridge.

I remember this picture because he just informed me that he's going fishing (crabbing) again this weekend. No need of fishing boat, they would be fishing on the pier. Thank goodness.

clouds, clouds, lots of clouds :D


i've almost forgotten about this photo which was on my p&s camera. i took this shot last november while in the bus going to town (Orchard Rd). this was somewhere in Ulu Pandan Valley Rd. weather was quite rainy during that time. the clouds look so surreal here :D

Spring Green

Three years ago while riding in a bus in Vancouver, I snapped this shot of a quiet street filled with the fresh green of spring. Happy Spring everyone.

river in la union


taken somewhere in La Union on our way to Baguio. when i saw this, i instantly wanted to jump out of the bus and take a dip at the river. the water may not be that clean but still, i would love to swim! am not sure if the water is deep though! :D

Local Color

There are many disadvantages of shooting on the move - time to focus is almost nonexistent, composition is compromised, etc, etc. So when I was visiting Bangladesh two years ago, my gameplan was to shoot as much as I could and later on sort out those that would be nice enough to share. This was so-so in color, but on sepia, it looked decent and gives a sense of otherworldly era. What say you?

Watering Hole?

I know I'm taking too much liberties here, not waiting for Syel or G to post, but posting away :D.

This is as much as my little point and shoot could handle zoom wise, but I hope you can see the birds chilling by the pier.

Taken while driving to Point Reyes National Seashore.

Drive by in Vancouver

The Winter Olympics will commence soon in Vancouver and so I thought I'd share another Vancouver drive by shot. Lovely snow covered peaks in the background and green grass in the foreground were what I captured as we were driving out of this municipal park.

First for 2010



It appears like all three of us, G and Syel and I, have gotten busy over the last few months to the point of almost abandoning this site. Well, no worries dear reader (if there are any left), I think this year we will be more productive.

As the first post for this year, I am sharing with you a shot I took of a street in Barcelona from the double deck tour bus. I just noticed now after uploading this that there is a Dominos Pizza there.
