Salam Aidilfitri

Dear family and friends, we as a family would like to wish ALL of you Eid Mubarak and we ask for forgiveness in everything we've done in the past. Selamat hari raya & maaf zahir batin everyone. I hope everyone has a brilliant Eid, and please post pictures the celebrations on your blogs for all of us far away to see!

Picture taken today, thanks to the new tripod :) Taken early morning (unfortunately not early enough to catch the golden sunlight but we have small kids :p). My original idea was for us to stand right by the water so that the picture would include our reflections with a background of gondolas etc2. The picture didn't turn out sharp enough, probably the autofocus was focusing on something else instead of us (grr). Also, PMS was scared Sarah would jump into the waters.

These pictures were plan A but it didn't really turn out that well, thank goodness for Plan B!:

above: picture was too blurry.
below: we were too small.

Love the colour coordination. Blue has always been one of my favourite colours, and seeing it being worn by a nice and loving family makes me like the colour even more :)

akum hiyoshi, nice to hear from you again! ive just today been wondering what you have been up to lately :) i thought - must be busy with his work agaknya. holidays have started right? but i read you're busy with exams after raya (what a "convenient" time to hold exams eh?) ps - blue used to be my fav colour too, now it's Fiery Ferrari RED... (change in personality, i guess) hahaha. but that say blue is a colour for shy people.

:) alamak baru je chat dengan rosli tadi hehehe. sorry lah Li, raya kat Notts this year. Haah as you said, practice makes perfect and my fingers are almost getting RSI from pressing the shutter so frequently!

your comments always bring laughter pycno. i don't have a songkok, unfortunately! i knew someone was going to bring that up. Selamat hari raya & maaf zahir dan batin pycno from our family too :)

sampai mengembek makan lamb! :) wah best nya dinner dengan ok and KKL:) glad you took lots of pictures but i think ok and kkl are very secretive and they do mind their pictures being posted in the inter-blogs:( - that's why i havent posted much of their pictures on my blog.

anyway, we're back in coventry now - tak raya kat Paris lah dith. nak raya apa kat paris, khutbah pun tak paham!

kat canal basin, coventry lah arep. Selamat hari raya to you too ... apa plan raya? ada buat open house?? :)

hahaha.... sama macam pycno... nak tanya about your songkok. gambar jadi cacat berpakaian melayu tanpa songkok terutama bila yang 3 lagi dah melawa. amar tak apa sebab kecil lagi.

blurr issue.

1. lousy tripod(there will be mechinical movements of the shutter thus lousy tripod will have fine jerk). <--- dah kena diri sendiri sebab tak stable.

2. i'll go for manual focusing when i leave that baby alone. i dont want its brain will 'change its mind' before the click.

3. cover the viewfinder with the cap supplied.

4. restudy the focussing modes that it offers.

semua ni pandangan peribadi berdasarkan pengalaman dengan problem yang sama.

actualyy i had or we had met your parents physically. Ok told me while i was feasting myself with the delicious lamb and all the cookings ala mid east and 1/4 east(i asked many times about the names but eventually still could not remember any) that slowed down my pace. i was with KKL family when they came for the meminang. i was working and had to rush to KKL's place for the ceremony 'untuk meramaikan'. <-- malays favourite word. kalau tak ada aral melintang, we will visit them raya ni dengan OK dan KKL.

selamat hari raya.

sorry atas ejaan dan susun bahasa.... baru balik kerja malam. baca semula dan saya sendiri separa faham maksud ;)

Saya ingin mengucapkan Selamat Hari Raya to Muhaimin, Kak Nisak, Sarah & Amar di Conventry, UK. Dengan ucapan jaga kamera tu elok2 bila taruk atas tripod jauh2, Kak Nisak apa masakan special tahun ni dan akhir sekali Maaf Zahir dan Batin.


mynn said...

tak pe tahun depan raya di malaysia insya allah saya pakai songkok tahun ni terpaksa lah berangin kepala saya.

i find your comment very useful about the blur issue. one thing i didnt know about before was how important it is to cover the viewfinder if you're not using it. apparently it could really affect exposure readings...

selamat hari raya dyanna, raya kat mana tahun ni? hehehe, pasal camera tu takut jugak jatuh dalam air masa ambik gambar hari tu. Nisak masak rahsia so far, ill send pictures insya allah once the project is completed ;)
