一閃一閃__那星

唔好睇少吳亮X(又名「吳X星」、「X亮星」嗱,我無爆佢名),老奸巨滑。
佢利用立法會議員嘅「豁免權」(parliamentary privilege),利用「老朋友」讀出「洗頭艇」嘅WhatsApp謠言,令親中傳媒可以肆無忌憚(或者「童子軍跳彈床」)咁「引述」佢段說話,從而令所有引述者避開唔駛畀人告之餘,更令一眾唔會經常接觸最前線網上消息嘅大叔阿伯三姑四姨七嬸,因新聞報導而係坊間亂咁傳,令每個人「上一輩」都信以為真。

呢招以訛傳訛,係舊年一眾中坑都中過伏。例如果啲阿乜水「又關佔中事」所以見唔到老母最後一面嘅假消息,好快就fake咗唔識用腦分真偽嘅豬兜。
不過,招「豁免權」都試過做「好事」。2011年傑斯有外遇單案,雖然已經係twitter指名導姓,蘇格蘭因屬另一司法地域而唔受影響,但傑斯就申請禁制令唔畀英國傳媒爆名。實情全世界都知係乜水,英國國會議員John Hemming睇唔過眼,係國會開佢名,就係咁樣全世界都可以因引述John哥仔而開傑斯名。
當然,亦有反對者認為John哥仔濫用呢個權力。七個月之後,傑斯自己放棄繼續打禁制令嘅官司。
講番那星,擺明親中,卻係利用咗一個英國政治制度留低嘅權力,幫自己大佬個爺爺做「李乜」,都咪話幾咁諷刺。

Some of My Best Photos of 2015

Every year in about this time many photographers share their best photos of the year so as to review and conclude what they have done. I am just one of the thousands (or more).

A productive year that I have got new equipments for still photography and learned different skills from action camera for video.

“Photography has become a household word and household want; is used alike by art and science, by love, business, and justice; is found in the most sumptuous saloon, and in the dingiest attic.”
Lady Elisabeth Eastlake, 1857 “Photography”, London Quarterly Review

Before sharing mine, if you may have time, check my instagram and Flickr Flickr and please follow me.

Enjoy the visuals.

I started blogging for food in Chinese language when I was in Japan. This “steak on rice” one is one of the best beef I have had outside Alberta.

image

Another new skills is smart phone app enhancement – I have got an app that can add subtitle and make movie-like scene. The photo was taken in a JR train when I was going from Tokyo to Kyoto. With cold tone white balance, the photo creates an unexpected mood.

image

I pick this as my best portrait photo of the year. The lady was using a Nikon film camera for her flower photography. What a passionate photographer! I wish I will still have the passion for photos when I am in my 60s or beyond.

Meteor shower shot around Ghost Lake, Alberta. Not a super fancy one but what a great experience with another photo-friend.

image

Manhattan Beach is one of the places I have been wanting to visit. Under the beach’ bridge/pier is a amazing location for sunset photos, mainly because of its unique sillouette scenery and Pacific Coast’s seascape.

image

Alberta is a landscape province where  Photoshop skills in unneeded. Hiking to Johnston Canyon in late spring to have this memorable jaw-dropping picture.

image

Hiking has been one of the favorite outdoor activities other than soccer. You may visit many great places, like this one. Kifune Shrine in Kifune, Kyoto, Japan has been famous because of an animated cartoon Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki.

image

On my way to another hiking trip, this photo was done by my new lens – Sigma Art Series 18-35mm f/1.8L. It was a muddy morning but after this road I was able to see Mount Fuji from another peak.

image

The funny part is, by all means, the photographer in the picture and the guy who looked at the photo-guy. While all other photojournalists are on the other side, this guy appeared at the back of former Prime Minister Stephen Harper during his campaign in Calgary.

image

I am told this photo is the most favourable one. The girl who is a phubbing caught me.

image

Flowers, flowers and flowers. Red and yellow flowers, green leaves and trees, and blue and white sky make this photo perfect.

image

Macrophotography for flower hugely depends on natural lighting if you don’t want to do more editing. This vertical photo with absolute zero  editing is now my phone’s wallpaper.

image

Often, I don’t share my photojourno pictures outside my work platform. afterw, Syrian refugees issues have been globally galvanized into real action after a drowned boy photo is widely shared and distributed. The dad-son photo taken is one of the refugees settling down in Canada.

Rachel Notley flip pancakes first time during the week of Calgary Stampede as Premier of Alberta. She did a great job.

Calgary Downtown INWARD-PLANET

The Calgary Downtown Planet

Calgary Downtown planet (April, 2012)

General speaking, I don’t care about copyright, but this time I have to. Photography from southeast Calgary and photoshop with several tricks (not difficult ones) that’s all I did. A few Calgary downtown commercial buildings, apartments or landmarks should be seen including Scotiabank Saddledome, Calgary Stampede’s ground, Calgary Tower, The Bow, Encana Tower, Eighth Avenue Place I, and Arriva Tower 1, etc. Picture quality not the best I’m sure this is more enjoyable with its funny angle.

A media scrum at Calgary International Airport

A media scrum and tour for Calgary International’s airport’s Airport Underpass (Dec, 2011)

It was a windy afternoon during winter time. I guess in that place we all media people suffering from 114km/h wind with -15C.
