Was really tied up running errands and hobbling around with a twisted ankle. :cry:
Just managed to take some shots from Penang Road.
All with the K20D and FA 28-200mm.

Twisted ankle? That's troublesome. :sweat:
What time were you there, Denis?

Anyway, we broke another record this month.
For the smallest Pentaxian gathering, this time around. Only met Equator, istDes and his friend. :bsmilie:

Will upload my stuff much later on, since I just got back home.

To Creampuff - Hope you get better, bro. And you've just caught the essence of the event!

[Calling out to those who went] "More pictures, Pentaxians!"

* * *
Next time, I'll just go on the 2nd day. Went on Saturday night with Franz, and being my 1st attempt at Thaipusam, I have no idea that it's be a night where they're just getting prepared! So no needle piercing, no head dress, not much painting ... no drama ... :(

In any case, still want to share some of mine here ...

"Entrance..."





#02

"Look up ... it's exquisite, isn't it?"




#03

"How about some dinner 1st?"





#04

"The Preparation"

You don't need the flash if you are using the FA Limiteds at night, Joseph! I believe you've got the whole set as well, isn't it? Just "whack"! I was using f2.0 most of the time, with iso 800.

Unfortunately, I'd to go to the hospital this morning. Else, I may have pop by and join Desmond, Baracus and yourself.

I tried hard to capture their facial expressions, that really faithful type of look

Congrats, Baracus! New Lens! Isn't f2.5 lovely? :cool:
Yeah. But I used f4 all the way. 135mm seemed tight though. Didn't expect to be this up close. Anyway, still PP-ing my shots

And Equatorer, FA77 really is THE portrait lens. (behind a capable shooter too) :thumbsup:
Struggling to get sharp shots with my "granfather" K-lens. :confused:
