Last weekend, I met up with a fellow blog reader, Cen Wei from Jakarta, Indonesia, and he brought along his group of family and friends !! Amongst the large crowd there were three strong Olympus fans, and they were shooting proudly with their OM-D E-M5s !! Surely it was amazing seeing friends from across borders coming together to visit this beloved country of mine, and I did my small part in bringing them out to my usual street hunts at Petaling Street for a short shutter therapy session.
Vinna, Hendry and Cen Wei, all OMD Warriors
When I started this blog and when I got myself deeply involved in photography never did I expect I would somehow manage to grow an audience reaching outside of my home country. Surely, much thanks to technology advancement and the Internet, we are all easily discovered and connected, wherever we are in the world. My life has surely been more colorful and vibrant having you all beautiful readers around.
To Cen Wei and company, I hope you all had a great time shooting and shopping in Kuala Lumpur. I sure hope to see you guys again some day in the future ! Keep that photography passion burning!
On a separate note, my day work schedule has suddenly become rather unpredictable, that I might need to work extra long hours, till ungodly past midnight (such is a typical life of engineers in Malaysia). Therefore, much time was spent away from my PC and I may not respond to comments and emails as quickly as usual.
Meanwhile I had a great time reading Scott Bourne from Photofocus as he put forth his argument dismissing myths about Full Frame camera advantages. Seriously, those who are still stuck with that Full Frame cameras are everything and smaller sensor system cameras are inferior, they really do need to update their knowledge on photography technology progress, which I admit is not easy to catch up since everything in these modern times is moving at blinding speed.
Do head over to Photofocus and read more here (click).
His ending of that article really got me going: "If your photography is so bad that you put more importance on how your camera looks than your images, there is no hope for you. Start learning to garden, fish or whittle – photography isn’t for you."
Can't agree more.
