Yesterday all over the world (in over 50 countries), there have been many people gathered together in sympathy with the Bersih 4 movement taking place in Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia over Saturday and Sunday. Bersih means clean in malay, and is directed at their current reigning government particularly their Prime minister, to be clean in their political dealings. We managed to go to the Bersih 4 London rally. Continue reading Bersih 4 London

In this thread I shall be sharing the photos I took with my full-spectrum Olympus E-M5 and Coastal Optics 60mm lens. I brought the various UV and IDS filters with me, but in the interest of time only shot with Baader U, IDS2e and Baader UV/IR. All images were shot handheld and hence were not the most ideal.

The glass I normally used to drink wine from, was the very nicely made Riedel port glass. This is small and nicely shaped. Unfortunately recently while cleaning it, I knocked it against the dinner table and it broke. Hence the job was on to look for a replacement wine glass. While researching about the various wine glasses available, I found out that the small glasses we were using (ISO tasting glass and my Riedel Port glass), were not really ideal to maximize the enjoyment of the different varieties of wine. Hence a different type of glass was required. Continue reading Riedel Ouverture Wine Glass

It has been a while since we last visited Stowe Garden. As my wife had rejoined the National Trust membership this year, we decided to make our way there on one of the hottest days of the year in England. As usual, we packed a scrumptious picnic to eat there – this is definitely one thing we all enjoy as a family. Continue reading Stowe Garden revisited

Just an update of the things which have been growing in our garden for the last few months. We have harvested the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion chilli and the runner beans. The tomatoes are growing well and should be ready for harvest fairly soon. Continue reading Home-grown

During my holiday, I wanted to try the long exposure capture of some images using my Sony A7R. As I did not bring a tripod for the trip, the only way was to brace it against something while taking the shot. In Malaysia, I took images of the waterfall of a koi pond at the recreational club of the estate where my relatives lived. The second image was of the night sky from a high multi-storey apartment in Singapore. Continue reading Long exposure images – Sony A7R

One of the things I had wanted to document while in Malaysia, was the fantastic variety of fruits they have there. I have posted about the durian, but there are many other fruits growing in Malaysia which I have managed to capture with my camera. So here they are. Continue reading Fruits of Malaysia

During our previous trip to Singapore, we did not have a chance to go to Gardens by the Bay. Hence during this trip, we decided that this would be a place we would definitely visit this time round. And we were definitely not disappointed. Continue reading Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

With the summer holiday taking place over the previous 2 weeks, and going back to work shortly after my return to England, it had completely slipped my radar that it has been over a year since I started this website. The main reminder was from 1&1 of the invoice for my website hosting package. Continue reading Reflections – 1st anniversary of myphotojourney.co.uk

When in Penang, there are a few areas of interest worth visiting. Of note is the Penang jetty, which is a collection of jetties close to each other. While there are local residences there, as well as some shops, it is also an attraction frequented by visitors to Penang. As can be expected, there are plenty of places to photograph while there. In fact, there was a wedding photo shoot taking place at that time of the evening due to the great lighting which is ideal for photo shoots. Continue reading Penang Jetty
