Not sure of it a case of coffee overdose or there is something else that’s keeping me awake. I should be sleeping earlier after the last couple of long nights (blame the beer) but I just couldn’t do so. Grrrr! I thought I could spend some time tidying up my blog layout but I was too tired to look at PHP codes. After spending a day with software codes in office … I don’t think I should be touching my blog layout stuffs tonight.

As I was standing outside … taking a puff (aka cancer sticks) … I saw some cool lightning from the city area. Suddenly I had this urge to try shoot the cityscape with some cool lighting as a bonus. Hmm. I went in … took the camera outta my cabinet and then the next thing I realised was that I needed a tripod. Being super duper lazy … I decided to rest my cam at the window ledge (of course still holding on to the strap in case it decides to jump 29 floors down) and then being curious … I set the camera to the HDR mode and fired some shots. 5 minutes later … no lightning were in sight. Sigh! Here’s a little consolation for myself … minus the lightning. 😀 This was taken using the el-cheapo Pentax K-x and the kit lens that came with it.

I ain’t a landscape shooting kind of guy … so here’s my very newbie attempt …
