Curiosity Killed The Cat And The Rest

What really happened

Google+ is an amazing platform – though I’m still a number 1 Twitter user but G+ comes in second. One of the most powerful feature of G+ is the hashtag view. Much like Twitter, searching a hashtag will open a stream of public posts by users in and outside your circle. Best part is, it streams it live. You can play and pause this stream as you read through them to catch up.

Since Curiosity landed on Mars (see my previous posts here and here for photos), there has been a number of images and memes about the rover, some funny, some cheeky, others are just darn lame. A lot of them though were based on “curiosity killed the cat”. The following are a collection of images I found while going through #Curiosity on Google+.

It’s taken me this long to finally find the free time to post something new here and I would like to maintain proper discipline when it comes to posting articles here. Let’s see if that can be done. Now, even though I didn’t get to post anything new, I never stopped taking photos. This post is dedicated to the missing Aidilfitri post I wanted to write over a month ago and since it’s past Hari Raya, I wish everyone had a good one.

The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque (or SOAS Mosque) is one of the most popular architecture photography subjects in Brunei. From sunrise to sunset, all day and all night long, photographers can get amazing results in the heart of the capital city. Here are some amazing photos I’ve found on the internet.

July 15th was His Majesty the Sultan of Brunei’s 64th birthday and celebrations do not end there. There will be more events throughout the country from performances in the capital to parades and float exhibitions. This post is a tribute to local photographers who captured the moments of the events thus far so I thought I’d create a collection just to show off their talents.

Hopefully I’ll be able to find the time to go out and take photos myself (more photos after the jump).

Bokeh (or sometimes spelt Boke) originated from a japanese word meaning “blur” or “unclear”. In photography it means unable to focus. When done right, photographers can make use of Bokeh to create amazing photographs. Bokeh is created through the use of a very wide aperture to create shallow depth of field which causes lights in the background to look like blurry orbs.

The above photo titled “Wet Bokeh” was taken through a wet glass window overlooking a street at night. Going around DeviantART, Flickr and Google Images, I’ve collected a few bokeh photographs I personally love (more after the break).
