Just a Lazy Sunday after Vesak Day

It’s really hard to slip out to take some photos with my 2 kids around.  Wanted to shoot some Vesak Day actions yesterday but to no avail.  Hence decided to just chunk my camera inside the car all day, just in case there’s some opportunity for pictures.  Managed to go to Bright Hill Temple with family & while they prayed, I took some shots.  Most are done in around 800 – 2000 ISO since there’s not much lighting within the temple.  But X-Pro1 did a pretty good job I must say!

The temple shoot was done in less than 30mins since the kids need to go back for some nap time.  Managed to slip out again after teatime when everyone is asleep.  Decided to forfeit my rest time & sneak out to the nearby Yishun reservoir for a quick shoot since I have never been there.  It was drizzling & I had to take the risk of the X-Pro1 being wet – it isn’t weather-sealed…But luckily, the camera held up pretty well.  When taking the landscape shoots, was really missing my Tokina 11-16mm.   That would have gotten me some pretty cool wide angle shots.
