Gallery 3: Shitposting and bycatch

Odds and ends

Haven't had much time to take photos lately, but here's a grab bag of a few good ones.


Visited the Forest Research Institute of Malaysia, it's a sprawling man made rainforest that was started as an experiment on reforestation. The experiment is close to a hundred years old by now and quite successful. It's a good reminder that we can restore the world if we wanted to. Now it's open to the public as a recreational area that is popular with hikers. I'm getting better at landscapes, maybe what I needed was a better subject.

The flood

I was too busy helping out, so I didn't get too many shots of the flood. But here are a couple of decent ones. The standing water as really reflective, like a mid 00's Nikon commercial.

The birds

I went to volunteer at a flood relief centre, but it wasn't very busy so I spent some time taking photos during the downtime. There were a suprising amount of average birds doing interesting things.

Strange little aliens

Stumbled upon these little guys while wandering around the rainforest at night. I know exactly what they are, but I'll let you figure it out yourself.

Golden hour. Walk in the park

A day off so I went for a walk in the local park to experiment with black and white photography. I'm actually pretty good at nature photography, so the incidental photos turned out better than what I set out to take. All of these were SOOC jpegs using the Classic chrome film simulation and with minor cropping.

Rainy day traffic jam

Wanted to do some photography, but it's the monsoon season and my camera isn't weather sealed. Not many chances to actually take photos for the next few months. I was stuck in a traffic jam too. So abstract shots of lights were the only thing I could get.


This is a very experimental series where I'm trying to play around with reduced file sizes. How much can I remove while keeping the intent of the image? All these shots were taken at night on empty streets, I really like wandering around at night.
