This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 in Perth, Western Australia, 2009.

I love Perth. I love the proximity it is to SG. I love the not too fast, not too slow, just nice pace of life. A walk in the evening during summer nearing Christmas have that peaceful mood, less the romantic white Christmas that people may be looking forward to but nevertheless, something that I can never feel in SG.

A hot afternoon in Fremantle. I fell in love with Fremantle for its slow paced lifestyle, the fish&chips @ Cicerellos, the coffee, and last but not least, the markets. I can totally let go and relax with a cup of coffee and a sandwich the whole morning here before going to the markets to do my shopping. How I wish I could do it again. Probably next year. Lol…

This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 at Busselton, Western Australia, 2009.

Busselton Jetty was undergoing extensive repair works when I was there. 2km long jetty, known for being the world’s longest, lives up to its reputation at this sunset. The magenta and reddish cast into the clouds above the jetty houses are a nice complement to the overall scene. People fishing, walking and relaxing along the stretch of the jetty are just some scenes of how a getaway from the hectic lifestyle could be here. Love to have a strong down this famed longest jetty once more.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 at Dunsbrough, Western Australia, 2009.

Named Sugarloaf Rock, this massive rock structure resembles a piece of sugar rock hence this name. Do not have the luxury to come for a sunrise shoot here, so here in the mid hot afternoon sun, drove past here and took a 10sec exposure for this final shot. Winds are coming in at 22km/hr, making my travel tripod shaking violently while this shot was taken so only way to stabilize it was to add weight and put my body weight on the cam and tripod to steady it through this shot. South West Coastline of Western Australia is extremely aplenty with such beautifull coastlines and this is just one of the many.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 at Cape Leuwinn Lighthouse, Western Australia, 2009.

Turning back for a last shot of this great lighthouse. An almost dead centre composition broken by the couple strolling towards it. After being a guide for ships for a century or more, it’s more of a scenic guide for tourists. Nevertheless, every lighthouse is indeed a guide when the weather gets rough. May light be the guide for you too.

116 years of this lighthouse and given a fresh coat of paint but still, here it stands, against the test of time. Long exposure shot and what I did was a bit of photoshopping to the left side with a flip of the right to make it seem immensely symmetrical.

This shot was taken with a Nikon D700 in Greens Pool, Denmark, Western Australia, 2009.

Just one tree standing in the midst of the cleared slopes of a vineyard in Pemberton. Storm clouds gathering, this tree stands strong against all nature forces unwavered.

This couple of weeks may have more photos of this genre showing strength and integrity. One man particularly earned me the respect over the years is Mr Chiam See Tong. Just like this tree he stood unwavered against the stronghold of the MIW, always fighting for the rights of Singaporeans and standing up for us. This GE 2011 is not just about the MIWs but also about us the Singaporeans to take the extra step to make a difference with our vote by standing strong with our decision and look forward for the change. Thumbs up for Mr Chiam See Tong, whom despite with his current condition, still stands out and speaks up during the rallies.
