Shooting in the rain

Long long time ago back in April, when ah pOp was at Monte Carlo to attend a Nokia event, he had 2 free days to walk about and on the 2nd day, he went street shooting in the rain.

I walked out the hotel after my breakfast to have a look at the nice cars parked outside. It was raining, and I thought…


I then went back to the room, left all my bags, lenses, flash and eveything else and grabbed only my Alpha and equipped it with the 28mm f2.8 lens. Grabbed the complimentary umbrella and walked out of the hotel ready for the street shoot.

“Excuse me, can you help take a photo of me holding my camera and umbrella? Thanks hehehe”

… and I posed.

Off I went…. saying “bye bye see you come again” to the hotel. lol

Was walking in the park and saw these colourful flowers… nice?

Smart fortwo in front of a bar on a slope. Dono why but I like this photo.

Just in case if anyone is curious what flowers are there in Europe, here’s another shot. ahah

Next up! The casino and everything else around it.
