Tag Archives: 22nd

Another year goes on…

and my liver takes another pounding and so does my memory. Had a killer night on Friday with plenty of holes in my memory but definitely a great time celebrating my 22nd birthday, feel so old! No longer able to be in denial and telling myself that I’m still 21. Celebrated the night with Lily Tran at the ever-so-classy venue of Sanctuary Hotel, because you know, the drinks are cheap. Here are the first lot of photos from my DIY photobooth consisting of my D700, flash and 17-35mm f/2.8 lens and a remote trigger, perfect.

Set up seemed to work okay, I think it didn’t fire a few times but in the end I was just too drunk to notice but it seems like it did its job.

Few more birthdays

So as you can see I’ve finally gone through some more photos and these should be the last of the birthdays I’ve been to where I’ve had my camera with me. The first is a small album from Ben, Carmen and David Huynh’s birthday, not quite as entertaining as the year before, but it was just a nice cake cutting at Carmen’s place followed by dinner at Wagaya.

Next up was a dinner and karaoke night at Mizuya in the city, fun night out and in terms of photography, I’ve experimented a fair bit with these photos trying out various different looks (either low saturation, high contrast B&W or playing with split toning). Any thoughts and opinions would be great.

Particularly fond of this shot though, just like the way the light from Kim’s phone shines on her and makes her stand out.

Photos from the past few weeks

So, I’ve been a lazy ass lately and photos have been piling up without being posted, so I’ve just thrown everything into one post.

First is VSA cruise of 2010, a lot of fisheye photos in this one, suprised I managed to get this in focus.

Next up are the photos from the VSA UNSW BBQ from August.

Also, 10 years later after we had all left primary school, the time capsule we had put in the ground in the year 2000 was finally dug up. Some things had changed at school, while others largely remained the same. As our memory of what was in the capsule was quite fuzzy, we all remembered the things in there being better than they actually were. The contents were a bit disappointing.

Within the last few weeks, our friend David Huynh had the privilege of graduating, finally after years of work and thousands of dollars, he’s got the piece of paper which makes it all worth it.

Nugo also tried to redeem himself with his 22nd birthday (not many photos from this one), most of you will remember he conked out really early for his 21st and this time round, he wasn’t gonna disappoint.

Thien and Kalee also celebrated their 22nd birthdays with a Korean BBQ dinner at the Bakehouse garden in North Strathfield complimented by two games of ten-pin bowling.

And most recently, during the mid sem break, I went on a trip up north to MacMasters beach on the Central Coast. Wonderful time with decent weather, and when it did get chilly, the jacuzzi was a nice touch.
