As promised earlier, here is the new website for this blog. It has been renamed to Day to Day Photo to reflect the vision of helping fellow photographers to be better at photography by having daily snippets of photography.
I thank you guys for supporting this blog so far and I hope you continue doing so for Day to Day Photo.
Yes that’s right. This blog is moving to a new home, with a new name and address.
The past semester in college has inspired me to pick up a new skill in web design and development. With this new skill, it’s only fitting that I use my own blog to experiment and further develop my skills. I’m currently focusing on is of course WordPress so to be able to fully utilize the WordPress content management capabilities, I need a self-hosted WordPress installation. I have already signed up for a webhosting service and currently I am in the middle of designing and building my own WordPress theme for this blog. As of now, I’m not releasing the new URL of the blog yet as I don’t want web traffic going to the website that is still under construction.
For the new blog, I have created a new blog plan based on the lessons I learnt from this one. So look out for more articles relating to introduction to photography and guides on how to get started in photography. There will be a photo gallery where I will be posting my own photographs, instead of putting them into blog posts as what I did here. I will be posting more DIY projects as I personally find them interesting and enjoyable,
Besides the new blog, I will be engaged in personal web development projects, so there could be frequent minor tweaks and improvements on the structure of the blog along the way.
So stay tuned and I will be announcing the blog within the upcoming weeks.
Here is a photo set of the latest addition to my collection of gadgets/machines/tools. I have considered long and hard to get myself a road bike and finally I have found a great deal for a decent second-hand road bike. So after getting my hand on the bike, it was time to get the photo setup and document this new arrival.

A friend of mine recently acquired a Sigma 18-200 f/3.5-6.4 for his Canon 550D and we decided to visit the Henderson Waves since I left the graduation photoshoot midway due to illness. It’s a little known pedestrian bridge spanning 274 m at 36 m above Henderson Road, well for me at least since it’s my first time there, linking Mount Faber Park to Telok Belangah Hill Park. With a breathtaking view of the southern coast of Singapore, extending from Marina Bay to Harbourfront and Labrador Park, it’s no wonder why it’s been a topic of interest recently.
Without a tripod, I had to make do with just an hour of shooting before the sky turned completely dark and I’m glad to have these photos as keepers.
And recently, I discovered that I might be red-green colour deficient, meaning I can’t distinguish certain hues of red and green when they’re placed close to each other. It doesn’t affect me on day-to-day activities, but I was still affected by the news at first. Eventually I realised that I should be thankful it was mild and there are people who suffer from total monochromacy. Nevertheless, this episode started me thinking on what exactly photography is to me, whether it is about how I want my photo to be seen by others, or about how I perceive the sights around me and keeping a record of my own visual experience. Perhaps I might just start shooting in monochrome to see the world from the perspective of those with total colour vision deficiency. Here is the first:
