Watch in full the US Department of Justice press conference on the civil complaints lodged by the department to seize approximately US$1 billion of assets linked to 1MDB.

Malaysia’s sovereign wealth fund — called 1Malaysia Development Berhad, or 1MDB.

“On paper the US$1 billion was for resource rights, instead (it was) used for personal enrichment…(including) gambling debts in Las Vegas casinos, a luxury yacht, interior decorators in London, millions in property including a Bombardier jet costing US$35 million,” said Deputy Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation Andrew McCabe.

Developing Your Eye II, Day Ten: “Triumph”

 

My submission for this assignment is the triumphant celebration of the victory over the enemies by these Cinese Opera performers. As the Hungry Ghosts’ Festival is approaching in a couple of months, you shall see more of these Chinese Opera snap-shots as it is my favourite photo-shooting time as we can see a variety of these Chinese Opera Troupes performing in Penang.

Day Ten: “Triumph” — Turn Up the Contrast

Triumph comes in all shapes and sizes: Your short story, accepted for publication in your favorite magazine. Your baby’s first step. Or the reward at the end of a cold winter walk: a massive elm tree standing beautifully in the light.

What does triumph mean to you?

Today’s Tip: Triumph usually denotes drama, no matter whether it’s big or small. Playing with contrast is a great way to enhance a photo for a more dramatic effect. Pump up the contrast in today’s snapshot.

My submissions are in monochrome and colour for the Day Ten theme of “Architecture”. This is the simple arched roof of the old Butterworth Railway Station on the mainland of Penang State.

Day Ten: “Architecture” — Go Monochrome

From the geometry of skyscrapers to the ironwork on historical buildings, there are many opportunities to capture the beauty and complexity of architecture.

Walk through this intricate, organic doorway of La Pedrera, a famous building by architect Antoni Gaudí in Barcelona, Spain:

Perhaps there’s a grand spiral staircase at your favorite museum. A stunning Art Deco movie theater in your town. Or a futuristic micro-house on your block. How will you interpret this theme?

Today’s Tip: As we explored yesterday, color is a powerful element in photography. But black and white, or monochrome, can also be very dramatic. Today, look for architectural elements that translate into black and white: sharp lines, patterns, defined shapes, large surface areas, and a mix of very light and very dark colors.
