FMS#Photoaday Day 10 - YOU

The most difficult thing for me is to be in front of the camera. I don't mind being behind the camera, though. That's where I feel the most comfortable. Anyway, this is really me taken by my daughter at Hadramawt Palace Restaurant while waiting for the food to arrive. This photo was taken on April 6, 2013.

FMS#Photoaday Day 9 - From Down Low

Day 9 - From Down Low. My husband, daughter and I went for a drive through the Oil palm plantation this morning after breakfast. When I saw a really tall Palm Oil tree, I told my husband to stop. I stood under the tree and here's what I came up with. Well, I did not reckon the glaring sun from above. I also wonder why there are so many secondary plants along the trunk of these oil palm. Could be they live symbiotically. I doubt they are parasitic plants.

Practicing for Dressage Competition

Zahra' is undergoing another round of practice for her third dressage competition which will be on June 16, 2013. I notice the sequence is slightly different from her previous two. This time around I decided to change my angle of shots slightly.
Following are some of the shots I took of her on her favourite horse, Doedoe.

I forgot to change the setting of my camera, so this photo turn out to be B&W.
Here she is walking Doedoe to the Dressage arena.

This photo looks like she and Doedoe were in communication. There
seem to be some kind of understanding between the two of them.
She had been riding him for the past three years.

FMS#Photoaday Day 8 - An Animal

Day 8. An animal. I had the opportunity to shoot some photos of my girl on her favourite horse, Doedoe. She was practicing for her upcoming Dressage competition. Here's my take for today's theme. I decided to take this photo in B&W and I really like the outcome.

FMS#Photoaday Day 7 - Bright

This photo was taken from the balcony of my house at 9:40 am. See how bright the sun was shining at the time.

FMS#Photoaday Day 6 - Transport

This photo is of my hubby's alternartive transport to work when I have to use the car on Saturdays. I decided to change it to B&W because I don't quite like the original coloured background.

FMS#Photoaday Day 5 - Environment

Work has really got into the way. So for this post on ENVIRONMENT, I revisit my photos gallery. This was taken in January 12, 2013. The event was my daughter's school cross-country race and the location was Permaisuri Lake Garden. This photo showed the boys taking their morning walk before the start of their race (which was around 11:00 am). The girls started their race at 9:00 am. I am proud to say that my girl made it 2nd place for the 5 km run.

FMS#photoaday Day 4 - After Dark

This photo was taken on March 16 at 8:23 pm on our way home from visiting my friend who had given birth four days earlier. I managed to get a few photos of the Sultan Abdul Samad building at the time before we were 'shooed' out of the area by the police. They were closing that stretch of road for the motorcyclist to race. Ugh!

FMS#Photoaday Day 3 - On my table

Day 3. What can be more interesting ON AN OFFICE TABLE? My work papers, eraser, glue, phones, a pair of scissors and the only interesting item is the wedding invitation.

FMS#photoaday - Day 2: A moment.....

Day 2. This is A MOMENT of triumph for my 13+ girl. She has always been wanting to drive and has been practicing since 12+ (whenever there is opportunity). Most times the car will stalled. On this day, she successfully reverse the car out of the parking lot, drove an extra half km and stop for dad to take over, without stalling. I am showing 2 pics here - one of her behind the wheel and the other her triumphant smile.
