Mushrooms

Took my family to visit the Brunei International Halal Food Products Expo 2008 at the International Convention Centre this morning, the final day of the Expo. Among other things, we bought some mushrooms (still in their plastic 'planters') partly because my son wanted to continue growing the mushrooms and partly because I wanted to take photos of them.......well, here are some of the photos I took of the mushrooms in my makeshift 'studio' using window light only and a polystyrene sheet as a reflector......

Around my garden

Tried out a Sigma DC 18-200mm 3.5-6.3 HSM lens for some close up photos around my garden. Here are some of the results............I think I still need a Nikkor Micro lens though.......(I hope the missus get the hint......!!)







My family pets get some time out of the pond water to enjoy the limelight..........

Jame' Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque


Had been rather busy in the last month that I could not do any update on this blog, and also a pity that I did not manage to take even a single photo of His Majesty's 62nd Birthday celebrations...........

Here are some photos I took recently of the magnificient Jame' Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque in Kampung Kiarong, a few kilometers from the capital.

The Mosque was built to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the accession to the throne of His Majesty Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah, the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Negara Brunei Darussalam. The brainchild of His Majesty, it is considered as one of the grandest mosque in the region and was officially opened on the 14th of July 1994.
