mnov5534 The giant blue wind chime that actually sounds like a real wind chime when you strike the suspended rods!! The kids were in love with this one in particular!! #Vivid #VividSydney #windchime #blue #silhouette #light #bright #JJ #Instagood #Instago #igers #iphonesia #IGersSydney #SydneyCommunity #Australia #photoOfTheDay #bestoftheday #picoftheday #Statigram #gmy #clubsocial #instadaily #all_shots #night #Instagramhub #Squaready 2y
  •   mnov5534 @stephtee Yeah I think she had a major temper problem!! I remember my parents commenting how neat my handwriting was in year 3, because she was so strict and forces everyone to write extremely neatly!! After that it all went downhill and thankfully today most communication is electronic!! 2y
  •   stephtee Oh gosh that it is quite scarey!!!! ESP if you were in Yr 3... Not a great teacher or role model... 2y
  •   mnov5534 @stephtee yeah I can imagine if a teacher did that today, they'd never work in a school again! Yet she was quite highly regarded as a good teacher! Ok to be fair she didn't throw chairs at students, just very close to them! Haha As for the chalk she chucked it to land on the desks of those who weren't paying attention, we're talking, etc! Naturally I was a good lil boy so never got chalked! Her screaming was pretty scary though, she would totally lose it that you could hear her screaming from well outside the classroom! 2y
  •   stephtee OMG that's still pretty shocking!!!!!! You poor thing having to have to cope with that - esp at such a young age 2y
  •   mnov5534 @stephtee yeah, how times have changed!! Luckily I didn't go through school while they still had the cane, that must've been traumatic!! 2y
  •   stephtee @mnov5534 I did!! (showing my age there n yes the teacher did use it.. Though it was only one teacher out of the entire school that was archaic enough to use it!!) 2y
  •   mnov5534 @stephtee Did you ever get caned?!! Thankfully that practice is gone, but I do believe all this political correctness has gone way too far these days!! Like some schools that wont sing Christmas carols because it might offend someone, that's just wrong! 2y

  •   mnov5534 @asian_impressions Thanks so much, I do love taking night shots, the problem is I'm rarely bothered taking the tripod out. It's definitely worth it though! 2y

mnov5534 Customs House is definitely the centrepiece of Vivid Sydney.

mnov5534 Another one from yesterday after my excitement of trying out my new coffee maker and since the weather isn't too good for macro experimentation outside! #JJ #Instagood #Instago #igers #iphonesia #IGersSydney #SydneyCommunity #photoOfTheDay #bestoftheday #picoftheday #Statigram #clubsocial #instadaily #all_shots #Instagramhub #Squaready #coffee #espresso #caffeine #macro #macro_power_hour #MacroOfTheDay #macro_flower #macrolove #macroporn 2y
  •   vivianwyj @mnov5534 haha,still,I'd like to say goodnight my dear friend 2y
  •   mnov5534 @vivianwyj Goodnight dear, I hope you sleep well Sweet dreams and hope for a nice day tomorrow 2y
  •   runbothellxc365 @gwenweinberg I thought of you when I saw this :) 2y
  •   andrew_lucy I've never seen a photo of a coffee bean taken so beautifully! It looks so rich! Great photo! 2y
  •   mnov5534 @andrew_lucy Thanks so much, I really appreciate your comment and I'm very happy you like it. I was experimenting with my new macro lens and external flash. I took many shots and was seeing the effect of bouncing the flash a different angles. Out of the many shots I took I liked this one the best, because it has a slight shine from the oils on the coffee bean without being too glossy. I think that's what gives it the richness you mentioned! 2y
  •   andrew_lucy You're very welcome. It was a compliment much deserved. I've actually been thinking of investing in an external flash, you might have just convinced me. I mean this was taken so well, most photos of coffee beens I've seen appear quite dull or, as you mentioned, appear too glossy that it completely shines over all of the bean's textures. But you managed to balance it very well 2y
  •   mnov5534 @andrew_lucy Thank you so much for all the detailed feedback and praise, it's really nice to hear when other people like my photos. I use the Nikon SB-400, it's the smallest and lightest external flash. Although it doesn't have as many functions or the flexibility of the larger flash guns, the small size means I'm more like to take it with me more often and it's quite cheap too. I still need to practice a lot and learn more about bouncing light. It can be very helpful especially for indoor macro work! Outdoors it would probably be really helpful too if you have someone else to angle a reflector for you, or a piece of paper even! 2y

mnov5534 So excited to finally get my new coffee maker, the original Bialetti Italian classic stovetop coffee pot! Best coffee ever, it beats what you get from 9/10 cafes, so excuse my excitement (and caffeine buzz)!! #JJ #Instagood #Instago #igers #iphonesia #IGersSydney #SydneyCommunity #photoOfTheDay #bestoftheday #picoftheday #Statigram #clubsocial #instadaily #all_shots #Instagramhub #Squaready #coffee #Bialetti #espresso #moka #caffettieria #caffeine 2y
  •   mnov5534 @mchaw Thank you so much, I'm worried I will become a total coffee addict now!! You'll have to help me drink some coffee so I don't have too much! Haha 2y
  •   mchaw Sure my pleasurejust have to make sure I drink it in day time or u r gonna stay up chatting with me all night lol 2y
  •   mnov5534 @mchaw Well that doesn't sound so bad!! 2y
  •   shinysunyr Wow..tasty 2y
  •   mnov5534 @shinysunyr hehe thank you, I'm saving a cup for you! 2y

mnov5534 So excited to finally get my macro lens!! I've been wanting to get one for a long time! I never realised how hard it is to take macro photos! Trying to hold the camera still is very hard and breathing is out of the question!! #JJ #Instagood #Instago #igers #iphonesia #IGersSydney #SydneyCommunity #photoOfTheDay #bestoftheday #picoftheday #Statigram #clubsocial #instadaily #all_shots #Instagramhub #Squaready #flower #daisy #macro #macro_power_hour #MacroOfTheDay #macro_flower #macrolove #macroporn #noFilter 2y
  •   nataliio Oh, yeah make sure to take a lot of pics and put them on ig so I can see them heehe! I just need to ask you how you put photos on ig if you didn't take the photo with your phone 2y
  •   mnov5534 @nataliio Haha I will definitely!! You can transfer them a few ways. The easiest is to setup a folder on your computer for syncing with your iPhone or iPod touch. Then connect your iPod/iPhone to iTunes and go to photos on the left side of iTunes. Then you tell it to just sync with that folder you created, now any photo you put in there will get synced with your phone when you start the sync. Also you can email them to yourself and open on your phone or use Dropbox, which I was doing for a long time, but its also tedious! With Android, it's do much easier! Just drag and drop the photos to the phone, choose and upload to IG! 2y
  •   nataliio Oh, okay I understand ! Thank you 2y
  •   mnov5534 @nataliio No worries, hope you can transfer and upload more pics! 2y
  •   _xtinah_ Nice angle 2y
  •   mnov5534 @_xtinah_ Thanks so much, I'm very happy you like it! 2y
  •   _xtinah_ You're welcome! 2y

mnov5534 The bird cages in Angel Place, filling the lane way with the sounds of birds that once lived in the area before the city expanded and forces them to retreat further out to the bush. #city #light #birdcage #cage #AngelPlace #JJ #Instagood #Instago #igers #iphonesia #IGersSydney #SydneyCommunity #Australia #SeeAustralia #photoOfTheDay #bestoftheday #picoftheday #Statigram #clubsocial #instadaily #all_shots #Instagramhub #Squaready #bird 2y

  •   patbyrnes1 What a beautiful gallery you have!! 2y

  •   vivianwyj beautiful slowshutter 2y
  •   mnov5534 @vivianwyj Thank you!! This one was about 10 or 12 seconds slow shutter I think 2y
  •   mchaw Talking about macro shots... You can say that again! It's much harder than I thought! I have to hold my breath and yet it's still so hard to focus. Actually I am just using the olloclip with my iPhone. Dunno if it would be better with a DSLR ^^;. i guess practice makes perfect. 2y
  •   mnov5534 @mchaw Oh I think Olloclip is the coolest iPhone accessory ever! If I ever get an iPhone, that'll be my first purchase!! So all your macro shots are taken with the Olloclip? It really is impressive! I think using a DSLR and macro lens is so much harder than a compact camera or phone. The shallow depth of field means such a tiny part of the image is in focus, unless you stop down significantly! But then you need a lot more light or the shutter slows down and then it's impossible to hold the camera still! Need a lot more practice, need to hold my breath and probably avoid coffee to minimise any chance of shakes! Haha 2y
  •   kayoochu wow ~which city? 2y
  •   mnov5534 @kayoo94 Thank you so much, it's Sydney, my city, and thank you for following 2y
  •   mchaw Oh actually I got my olloclip only a few weeks ago. So only the recent macro shots were taken with it. Frankly I haven't got my favorite macro shots with it so far. I have to say its really cool and handy as I can bring it with me at all time As for the other macro shots they were taken with my 55-200mm lens :P it was a bit of a challenge as its hard to focus as well. But its so fantastic once I have got a perfect shot hehe 2y
  •   mnov5534 @mchaw Oh I see!! The portability of the Olloclip is definitely a huge bonus! I'm sure you will take many awesome shots with it! It's definitely rewarding when you take a great shot, very addictive too, it makes me want to take more great shots! 2y

  •   mnov5534 @mahoory14341 Thanks so much!! It requires a lot of effort to keep them alive, let alone looking this good! It would be so nice to have one but I don't think I could give it enough care to keep it happy 2y
  •   mahoory14341 Yea I know, that's why I don't have one, it is so expensive here & even if I buy it I can't make it stay fresh. 2y
