Flashback Shots of 2008

It's New Year's Eve! Woots! I've been feeling very very tired today. Spent almost half the day sleeping. Gasp! And i haven't completed my new blog template!! Argh, gotta rush!

Anyways, since today is the last day of year 2008, i'd like to post up a number of twelve pictures which i think is worth taking another look at. Something like a flashback? Hehe. Even so, these pictures are not perfect. If you do not know, this is actually my first year taking up photography as something that i favour. So yeah, pardon the imperfections. *smiles.


1st : Lily by the Road
Taken right outside my house.

Wedding Preparation (P2)

Back with more pictures! And by the way, i've got loads and loads of pictures taken from the wedding! Sweat much also. Heh. I'll be keeping that for nest year's meal. Hehe.

They were's workin' too much. Just had lunch, so i assume that they were lazying around? *shrugs.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


More add-ons.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


The white branch. We placed six of these along the pathway to the pulpit. Too white to clearly see the design - pink, white and purple butterflies; white curly, wavy ribbons; silver coils; and the white branch itself. It's quite sweat, really.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


The completed look of the board.

Helping out. The heart thingy is really heavy. Probably because they've added in water to the sponges.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Tied up the left overs. Thought it looked good so snapped it.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Looks even more elegant here!
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Pity that the shot wasn't very clear. *sigh
Wedding Preparation (P2)


A closer look at the heart. Neatly done!
Wedding Preparation (P2)


I wonder when i'll be able to arrange something like this?
Wedding Preparation (P2)


The orchids; close-up shot again.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


I just simply like this flower a lot. Have been trying to take loads of it, but failed each time.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Still trying to hang it up.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


It got so heavy that you need a guy to help out.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


While the other tried hard to tie it as quick as possible.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


The Ben.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Finally, it's done! Whoops.. accidentally tilted my camera.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


A shot from the top of the heart.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


And i saw this. Haha. Was standing behind the pulpit, leaning forward.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


This one! I like! If only it didn't blur up. *sobs
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Walah! Nice?
Reminder; send this picture to Aunty Wanda for her portfolio.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


The doves on the arch against the main entrance.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


And finally, not forgetting the group pictures! Was trying out this shot on a chair. Had to put on the timer, that's why.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


It's the only way i could be in the picture as well. Hehe.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Not everybody was in, though. Some already went back. But it was good enough. Five plus hours altogether!
Wedding Preparation (P2)


It was tiring, of course. Followed Aunty Elaine's car back. Aunty Elaine gave a lift back home. She decided to stop by the bride's house to have a look at the car. Too bad, she wasn't home. So i only managed to snap the back part.
Wedding Preparation (P2)


Tomorrow! Time to skin out the old skin and put on a new suit! Better get my brains to start crackin'.

Wedding Preparation (P1)

Whoops! I'm late for breakfast. Hehe. Nevermind, i'll serve you brunch instead.

Got out from the house and went to church last Saturday to help out with the decorations and stuffs. My camera helped out too. Lol.

In the back room helping out.
Alex & Sarah.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Had to change the green sponges. It was easy shaping it into the desired shape.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Then, tied it with wire. Triple hands helped to speed up the process.
SzeWei, Me & Stephanie.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Aunty Wanda arranged this. Nice right?
Wedding Preparation (P1)


I didn't know a close-up picture would turn out this nice with flash. Alex took this with my camera.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


SzeMin. Unfortunately, it was too heavy somewhere and the thing tumbled.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


And so, she had to rearrange.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Joel. The stage was decorated too. Just a little bit.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


We x-ed out her tension by talkin' to her. Lol.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Ben. I like, the leaf! Looked like those in cartoons.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


The main entrance. Wonder why the whole thang is just white and a little of purple and pink? Basically, that's the theme colour. The groom likes purple, while the bride loves pink.
Joanne & EeMeng
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Pulled out the articles on the notice board and decorated it thoroughly.
Aunty Elaine and Aunty Meng Chooi.
Wedding Preparation (P1)

Ivy.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


They were trying to figure out how to put up the thang, while the other just talked entertained 'em?
SzeWei, Hansel, Joel and Stephanie.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Hansel. "Oh ye faithful people, listen to me; the bodiless"
Wedding Preparation (P1)


"And i, the bodiless, declares that my body shall fall down anytime now."
(I hope he's not reading this. Lol!)
Wedding Preparation (P1)


It's been so so long since i touched the macro manual mode! Had been using the automatic one for quite some time.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


I specially like this picture! Hey, i wasn't playing with fire.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


We needed it to burn the ribbons. Helps to curl 'em up.
Sarah & Ben.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


The dove by the entrance. Another close-up shot.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Many of my pictures that day were kinda blurry, which annoys me much. Either it's me shaking too much, or it's the shutter lagging.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


The professional in action once more.
Aunty Wanda
Wedding Preparation (P1)


See what i mean about getting blurry pictures?
Wedding Preparation (P1)


It's annoying.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


But i think i improved much on candid shots.
SzeWei.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Though, haven't managed to brush up my exposure problems just yet.
Aunty Wanda.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Oh my! Overly worked?
SzeWei & Ben.
Wedding Preparation (P1)


Twenty seven pictures altogether. More to be served for dinner. Stay tune!
