Developing Your Eye II, Day Eight: “Edge”   2 comments


Developing Your Eye II, Day Eight: “Edge”

My submission is the ” Sunrise at Penang Port ” for the theme “Edge” – Straighten Your Image. There are many straight lines to be straightened so I can only straighten the biggest mast of the yacht only – perfectly straight. Done.

Day Eight: “Edge” — Straighten Your Image

  • At Ta Prohm, the jungle temple in the Angkor Wat complex in Cambodia, centuries-old carvings have fallen victim to time and tree roots. In some areas, walls still stand, their intact windows creating frames and portals. The solid, straight edges of the windows are a stark contrast to the stones that have tumbled down over time.

    Today, show us an edge — a straight line, a narrow ridge, a precipice.

    Today’s Tip: Use an editing tool to check the alignment and adjust the image so that your edge is perfectly straight.

Developing Your Eye, Day One: “Home”

“Home”

We stayed on the Island of Penang so in the old days when there were no bridges, we took the ferry to cross over the channel towards our home on Penang Island from the Mainland. When we are oustation or overseas and on seeing this ferry, it is “home” again for us. Presently in 2016, we have 2 Penang Bridges connecting the Penang Island to the Mainland. Apology for the late start as my internet was very unstable and I was unwell too.

Day One: “Home” — Get Oriented

When you think of home, what do you imagine? You might picture a house from your past, your favorite neighborhood hangout, or a city you miss. And while home is often found on a map, it can also be less tangible: a loved one, a state of mind, a forgotten time.

Here’s a literal (and tiny) interpretation of home:

Anxious wait for the Ferry for the second day FAPA 2014 outing   Leave a comment


This is the second day of the FAPA Congress Penang 2014 when all the delegates have to wake up early at 5.30 am to capture the sunrise across the Penang Straits separating Penang Island and the Mainland. The sun would appear behind the Bukit Mertajam Hill on the mainland. With the current slight hazy weather, it is hopefully be a good sunrise with “orangey” sun. However, there were many anxious moments when the ferry did not arrive in time. After some excuses, the ferry appeared and we were soon boarding the ferry boat.

Our trip to Pulau Aman   Leave a comment


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Finally, the trip was made this afternoon after the false start due to rain last Thursday. After work today, we made a bee-line for Batu Kawan after a seafood luch at the traffic junction to Batu Kawan and Bukit Tambun. The boat fares were RM6.00 per person, for a return ticket to Pulau Aman and back to the Batu Kawan Jetty from Pulau Aman. The day was extremely hot and sunny, thus making photography a tough task to shoot great photos. Anyway, I brought along some aid – Lee ND filter. Hopefully, this can assist in getting blue skies and everything nice as Patrick Teoh used to say.
We hiked around a bit until the Golden Well or Telaga Emas and back to the Floating Restaurant with the famous Mee Udang or Prawn Noodles but we already had lunch so no test-taste of the Mee Udang selling at RM6.00 for regular and RM10.00 for special plate with extra prawns. Roughly at 4.00 pm we were heading back to the mainland to avoid the traffic jam after 5.00 pm.

The boat trip to Pulau Aman was not fulfilled   1 comment

We thought of going over to Pulau Aman but were deterred by the rainstorm coming from the direction of George Town. It shall be a fruitless photoshoot with the heavy rain as we were caught unprepared with no rain-coats for ourselves and our cameras. Bertrand was more prepared with a personal rain-coat. There is always another time even with RM6.00 per trip fares – we are not “cheap-skates” if you want to know. We had a good seafood lunch and we were back to Penang Island in the heavy rains.

The ferry to Gu Lang Yu or Island from Xiamen   Leave a comment


This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The next destination in our Fujian Tour was the Gulungyu Island off Xiamen Island itself. This reminded me of of our Penang’s Pulau Jerejak which can be created into a tourist attraction in future.

From the Wikipedia:-
Gulangyu “Drum Wave Islet” (鼓浪屿) is a car free island off the coast of Xiamen, Fujian province in southern China, about 2 square kilometres (0.77 sq mi) in area. It is home to about 20,000 people and is a very popular tourist destination.

Visitors can reach it by ferry from Xiamen Island in about 5 minutes. Gulangyu Island is renowned for its beaches and winding lanes and its varied architecture.

The island is on China’s list of National Scenic Spots and also ranks at the top of the list of the ten most-scenic areas in Fujian Province.

Taking the ferry from George Town to Butterworth   Leave a comment


This slideshow requires JavaScript.


These should be the common scenic views when I took the ferry to work from George Town to Butterworth. One enters the ferry from the island side where George Town is located for free as only the ferry tickets at RM7.70 per car is collected at the mainland side where Butterworth is located. The vehicles are usually directed to the bottom deck unless the ferry is a fully vehicular one – one which only carries vehicles without passengers. The usual ferry also carries passengers on the upper deck. The crossing of the Penang Channel will take around half an hour. The only way across this body of water is through the Penang Bridge said to be the third longest in the world with a stretch of 13.5 kms. Another second linkage is currently being built with completion in a few years’ time.

Sorry no photo upload is possible due to poor internet connections!
