Today is the last part of the Lightcatcher Exhibition series posts. The photos below are the ones I displayed at the exhibition this year, the first one in particular was very popular among my guests. Enjoy!

Over the last weekend, I was part of a photo exhibition held by our photographer group ‘Lightcatcher’. Just over 20 photographers were involved in this exhibition (myself and Vea included) and the exhibition turned out to be quite a success with around 200 people attending on the opening night. Since there are a lot of photos, I think I will write the post in parts. Today’s post is of the candid photos in preparation of the exhibition.
For the readers who love coffee, you will like today’s post 😉 Today, we have Aroma espresso bar! 😀
Aroma espresso bar is a coffee shop, as you probably have guessed ;), but they do serve very good salad and they are usually jammed packed with people during the lunch hours. Even if you don’t like coffee that much, they do have excellent hot chocolate too, so there is something for everyone here 🙂
Vea’s friend, Michelle (a.k.a. Shell), has her wedding coming up this summer and last week, they decided to check out a flower factory to check out the flowers needed for the wedding day decor.
I initially thought this trip would provide for an interesting photo opportunity and I was more than happy to tag along. However when I got there… I chickened out 😛 People were working so hard and I felt that I might be disturbing them by taking photos. In hindsight, considering how quiet my X100 is, I don’t think I would have bothered them too much. Oh well, maybe next time, I will be able to muster up more courage to take some cool photos 😀
After the stop at the flower shop, we headed for IKEA. Initially we were just going to grab some coffee but who knew choosing flowers would make you so hungry 😉 besides, those IKEA meatballs are cheap AND tasty! 😀 (although I wouldn’t recommend them if you are on a diet :P).
When the sun is low in the sky, either during sunset or sunrise, long extended shadow of the trees create interesting patterns on the ground or buildings.
In the shot above, I liked the shadow cast by the trees on the ground but what I also liked about the scene was the fact that the building to the left side of the photo was reflecting the sun in the opposite direction of the sun to provide a fill light (it was acting as a GIANT reflector :P)
There shots were taken few months ago before the weather started to get warmer. The same park looks very ‘green’ now 😀
During the warmer seasons, waterfront is a popular place for families, performers and great atmosphere! 😀
Something about the water… it has a very calming effect on people. Just listening to the water breaking near the shore and feeling pleasant breeze on your face is so relaxing… 🙂
Late afternoon, around 4PM to 7PM, is a wonderful time to be near waterfront. The sun is not too strong and you get the pleasant breeze. And you will still get to see some of the performers still performing 😀
