SOOC

Here’s an image I shot last night during a storm in KL (tap for a larger version). This is straight out of camera (SOOC) and I’ve done nothing to the image other than crop out a bit of the sky. It’s shot looking North-East from my balcony, towards Genting Highlands. Looking North West it was completely dark with storm...

The Kiwis do it again

Warning — this is not a rugby post…[1. Congrats, by the way :)] What’s with these bloody Kiwis? They’re some of the most creative people in the world (and they have the best conferences).

The soul of a racquet

“Strings are the soul of a racquet” — Unknown Kelly and I had been playing with same Wilson TieBreaker Titanium racquets my mother-in-law bought us for Xmas many, many years ago.
