Hoping for the last ship to arrive
I’ve been blessed with a kingdom, half-mine


Playing with irony there. Beach House’s Gila.


Do you know that quivering feeling as if when you speed up the shutter speed of 24/25 fps footage? Everything going jerky like Saving Private Ryan war theater.

That’s how I define irrational jealousy.

Uncontrollable fear and insecurity.

Then you hit the shutter speed below 1/30 with ND 8 on a bright day light of those raging jealousy.

You control the flaring fear, you eclipse the insecurity vignette.

Smooth cotton sea at long exposure at 12 o’clock.


Lucky bastard.


Afterthought. Those feeling is also true when you’re zombified from sleep deprivation. Your senses assaulted by a manic Drill Sergeant out of nowhere.

Blaring horn at the side of the road like screaming banshee to you ears. Uneven light blinding you like psychedelic trip. You pushed your step from the hard asphalt road to the cold concrete to the warmth edge of your bed.

Sleep. Solace.


Still. Lucky prick.

  2. ND filter to 8 stops & a good 30 sec exposure should do it :P

    I use ND filter a lot during day light time-lapse, need to make all the dynamic things i.e. cars, cloud, pedestrian etc. freeze in its place.

    I’m still collecting my portfolio, someday I’ll post a good 3 minutes feature on all the good one.

    Looks like I’ve been investing this hobby on par with the pro — although the time-lapse pro are upgrading to RED EPIC camera and a bloody expensive prime & tilt-shift lens from mere Canon 5DM2.

  3. and a tripod. ahaha. (OK, that’s a given.)

    Bro, you have invested plenty indeed. You’re making money with all of these pro results, right?

    Oh… I want a 5DM2 so much!!!
