Today is the actual day of my birthday, yes I am a Boxing Day boy. Unfortunately, Malaysia decided to not celebrate Boxing Day as an official national holiday, or else it would have been so cool having my birthday falling on a public holiday every year. Nonetheless, it is Saturday today so it was not too bad at all. I have had private celebrations with my friends, and I have even blogged about it here (click).
The year is coming to an end fast, and I could squeeze in one last shutter therapy session, which turned out to be quite a fruitful one. I can not think of a better idea for the last blog entry of the year. This year has been quite an interesting year for the blog, though the total number of blog entries has decreased (111 posts in 2014 vs 83 posts in 2015), I actually put more effort and spent more time in composing many blog entries that I believe will benefit the general crowd that comes visiting here: the Micro Four Thirds community, and learning photographers.
I am not one to make new years resolutions, but hey, I can definitely want to continue blogging, shooting and sharing photographs from my shutter therapy sessions.
I will be taking a break from work, travelling home to visit my mum and spend some time with her. I shall celebrate the New Year with her, and that means, I will not be blogging too actively for the coming few weeks. I will make time for shutter therapy in my beloved hometown, Kuching, that is for sure! So do expect small updates.
All images were taken with Olympus OM-D E-M10 Mark II and M.Zuiko 25mm F1.8 and 9mm F8 Fisheye Body Cap Lens.
I love how wide the 9mm F8 fisheye body cap lens. I know the fisheye effect distortion is not something that many people can accept, but hey, I think it does create dramatic outcome.

Just a play of the light and shadow at the stairs and walkway in a train station.

taken at a certain angle, and applying some distortion correction, the image from the fisheye body cap lens can look quite pleasing.

My birthday gift that Jackie helped custom-painted, Gundam Saviour.
Because, light sabers are so cool. I mean, beam sabers (Gundam lingo).
I hope the year has been an awesome one for each and every one of you! Here is me wishing you a wonderful and even better year ahead in 2016.
