A colony of ants – close-up

This is something that is out of the ordinary for me….fortunately able to capture the colony working together in transporting the grains of rice to their nest.

All of the photos are shot at 1/200, f2.8, 60mm

Testing out EF-S60mm Macro

Finally, I just acquired an EF-S60mm macro lens and couldn’t wait to test it out :)

Wow this lens rocks :D , I am able to get a focus at a distance of less than 30cm from an object. The clarity makes it nice but the only thing that seems to bother me is the blurry effect around the focus point. I am not sure why it is that so.

Some of the shots that I took around my house. :)

around my house

Got a chance to borrow a Canon 85mm L series from my cousin and started to shoot around the garden in front of my home.

A visit to Sukorejo, East Java

First of all, Happy New Year 2010 to you all :) Lots of success in this new year to you.

Two days right after the New Year 2010, I got a chance to visit my late grandma’s place to rest. I did not have a chance to say goodbye to her when she passed away last year, 2008. So on that day was her 1st death anniversary and I did what I had to do.. :)

Moving on, the day was bright and hot! I got sunburns on my bare arms, cheeks and the back of my neck. I got couple shots of little creatures around includes, grasshopper, blue dragonfly, red dragonfly and many butterflies. It was beautiful and I did never know that cemetery comes with all these beautiful natures.

Below are just some of the images that I took, please enjoy them:

Macro Photography…

I have been reading on some macro photographer such as Robert Thompson, Gary Bryan and Stan Sholik. I am amazed by how they described the world of macro photography. One thing that they share in common is that they have passion in doing this. Whether they shoot inanimate thing or nature wildlife, they always take their own sweet time. Their inspirations come from every things that surround them.

They inspired me to try out macro photography actually. I love how flowers and small things such as lady bug amazed me with their unique colors and patterns. and you know I never had a chance to really shot them in a “macro” way (hopefull that’s the right term for it) hehe.

I love nature in every way and i hope I can find the passion in this macro photography.
Below is one of the shots that I made recently

Flowers and Leaves

Had a chance to shoot flowers and leaves along the roadside of Edmond’s Ferry Terminal. I was using my 28-135mm lens. It was cloudy sky with a chance of raining :)

Is this a chrysanthemum flower?
