A day in Mishima
The Voigtländer 42.5mm f0.95 lens was a lens which I wanted to add to my expanding collection of micro four-thirds prime lenes. Finally I get to get my hands on it and managed to shoot for a bit. These are my initial thoughts of the Voigtlander 42.5mm with the Olympus OMD EM5 camera.
A week ago, the 79th IFLA World Library and Information Congress was held in Singapore. Being a librarian with the National Library Board of Singapore, the host country, a couple of staff members were roped in to help out in ensuring that the international event flowed smoothly.
IFLA WLIC is basically THE congress for librarians and information specialists. It is an international conference and this year, there were 3750 delegates from 120 countries. It was a big event. I was very fortunately to be part of the IFLA Express as a video and photographer.
Monkeys are a common sight in some parts of Singapore.
Due to the high density of residential areas that comes into contact with the fringes of nature reserves, these monkeys are often seen at places.
A month in with the OMD, amazing little creature. I replaced my NEX6 w/ Tamon 90mm (NIKON mount with the OMD w/ 75mm.
The AF is blazing, the quality is amazing, the IBIS is out of this world. It’s so much easier to capture shots with this combo than with the bigger NEX6 combination.
An extremely fun project for the US Embassy Collection housed in Jurong Regional Library!
A couple of days ago I dropped by one of the few water catchment areas in Singapore which is so close to where I stay, yet never been to it.
As usual, the sights at the water catchment areas are breathtaking, especially during dusk, which was when this photo was taken.
The shelter reminds me of those found at MacRitchie.
Loving this serene place.

Taken in a car, passing by a bus stop, on the way to work.
This is what commuters face every morning when they commute from home to work/school.
Buses and trains are usually extremely crowded, especially the feeder services which are buses that bring the people who live at the fringe of the neighbourhood to the train stations.
The interval for the feeder services should be <5 mins, but sometimes the bus can take more than that time to arrive and the crowd will just build up.

One of the most inspiring things that I come across during my work as a librarian is the constant exposure to children who are immersed in what they read.
Captured a moment of such a scene one day on board the Mobile Library Bus.
I love my job.
