No internet so No post   3 comments


No internet so No post

After 2 days without internet, it is back but through my handphone instead. My sincere apologies, folks.

No internet for the paymaster by TM Steamyx – as my son used this for his work so he has priority. The shared Modem/WiFi was re-configurated, along with other things but my computer downstairs was not treated similarly thus was ignored by the TM  Technician. No internet at all and no links for me the one footing the monthly payment. Repairing without total completely repairing so shall I pay next month??? That is a good question, folks.

Notice of Apology of Importance.

Internet without internet ………. the uploading speed is so slow until our friendly message showed up –

“There is no Internet connection
Try:
Checking the network cables, modem, and router
Reconnecting to Wi-Fi
Running Windows Network Diagnostics”

Our local TM internet is back to the usual problem even though I had upgraded to 8G with additional payment of extra RM10.00 (US$2.50) per month after numerous complaints until I am so tired.

Though my computer showed there is internet access, the uploading speed is so slow that certain portions of a blog did not appear especially the LIKE section. So, my emails associated with WordPress blogs had increased to 1,157 already as I cannot process these emails. Luckily it had not ballooned to 35,000 like Trump’s allegation Hiliary Clinton’s deleted emails, hahaha, though at one time it swelled to 3,500 over!

Apologies for the slower response.

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.

Developing Your Eye, Day Ten: “Architecture”

 

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.

Developing Your Eye, Day Nine: “A Pop of Color”   Leave a comment

Developing Your Eye, Day Nine: “A Pop of Color”

 

In photography, I love colours – more and vivid the better the feeling. I have a general reluctance of monochrome or black/white prints. We progress from Black and White photography towards Colour Photography so why we have to regress ourselves back to monochrome with artistic feel as the primary reason. I ask a simple question to those who prefer monchrome – Do you watch your TV in Black and White or in Colours ? The ansawer is obvious as most or maybe all Black and White Televisions are now defunct. Well, I rest my case.

My submission is the colourful ferries of Penang.

Developing Your Eye, Day Eight: “A Pop of Colour” – colours rather than a colour.

 

 

 


Developing Your Eye, Day Nine: “A Pop of Color”

Day Nine: “A Pop of Color” — Incorporate Color

The colors in our photographs are evocative and rouse emotions within us. Color can elevate a mundane image into something beautiful and intriguing, and can tell a tale within the frame.

In this image of a door in Malta, the two shades of blue brighten an otherwise nondescript scene, and also add layers of story and perspective: Who lives in this building? What’s behind that door?

Day Nine: “A Pop of Color” — Incorporate Color

Today, pay attention to how color affects your image. Let color be the star!

Today’s Tip: Keep it simple: experiment with only one color.
