Date of Visit: August 31 2014
“This August has been the wettest and coldest month on record since 1998. The average temperature is 9C (where historically it has been 17C)…” ,rattled this off the news I watched last night. 😎
Today being the last day of winter and the first time in a long while I see the sun poking out from behind the clouds, I went to Royal Botanical Gardens to do my photography assignment. Yes, I’ve finally decided to learn photography! 3 hours per Saturday for 5 weeks. I’ve been editing too many crappy pictures from my summer trip – extremely disappointing – that I reckon I should learn the technical aspects of handling a camera – pronto!
Being a sunny Sunday, there were a lot people armed with huge cameras blasting away. Weighing in with my share… tulips, tulips and more tulips…
Grr… is it my camera or my photography skills? I’m trying to capture the birds, by the way.
One of our assignment was to bracket the pictures to see the different exposures… Still playing around with my camera and discovering the many hidden functions it has! Thrills!
Well, let’s see if my photography skills improves! Meanwhile a toppled tree which I find very artistic -which also reminds me of the upside-down tree in our old architecture faculty building in uni… Meanwhile, my instagrams ain’t look too shabby – check me out here!
