A Famosa

After the walk around the Dutch Square, we went to A Famosa. It is the oldest surviving European architectural remains in South-East Asia.

Authenticity, along with my recent muse on consistency and minimalism, has spurred me to post text-only entries.

Wide angle graduation

My girlfriend graduated in February and I was invited to attend the ceremony. It was a good opportunity to bring my new lens out for a spin.

Badminton baby

A few months ago, we had some down time and brought my niece out for her first badminton session. I took my Nikon D90 out of hibernation for a spin.
