Couldn’t resist doing a quick import and edit on @lightroom mobile because this was the scene that we were so excited for before our trip. the mountains were covered with fog during our first stay in namche bazar and we left the next day and headed for the everest base camp slightly dejected.
but thankfully the skies cleared up after a huge downpour when we descended from base camp. photos can’t fully justify the magnitude and beauty of this scene when i was freezing my a*s off with my camera and tripod as the sun set.

The “i miss singapore, can’t wait to go back” kind of filler post hahaha. but honestly i can’t wait to go back to singapore. i’m currently in the middle region of nepal on the way back to kathmandu after our flight landed somewhere away from kathmandu because we brought it a day early. locals here are scheming, money loving and tourist bullying pricks who only have eyes for money. but thankfully among these vultures are really kind hearted souls who told them off and put us on a bus back to where we need to go. i’ll always remember what he said “we need to help these people because they are our guest and we want them to enjoy their stay in nepal” random nepali uncle, i love you. ❤️ namaste
Mountains ranges are pretty insane and all but urban and streets will always be my favourite. fun fact: when i started photography back in 2017, it was because of landscape because i was so into mountains and beautiful sceneries but we have none of that in singapore and slowly i fell in love with urban structures and architecture.
Finally back with a decent internet connection after spending 4 days in the altitude of 4000-5000m+ of the everest region of nepal. while many would imagine and think of the magnificent and beautiful mountain ranges that comes along with these heights, what i’ve also witnessed is the way of life of the people at this altitude. porters and workers carrying heavy equipments through and fro base camp to the nearest village for top up and barely scrapping back and meeting ends meet for their families back home hundreds of kilometres away from the tourist spot that is the everest base camp trek.
while many would think that i’ve gone to nepal for the bangers and landscape, i have actually gone and came back with a deeper sense of gratification and compassion for what i have back home in singapore.

It’s human nature to feel sad whenever a iconic sign or structure is removed/bound to be removed during its announcement. something we get so used to seeing everyday gone. a slice of history removed from its book forever. but what about before the announcement of removal? what emotions do we have? nothing right? food for thought for everyone.
People take things for granted usually and only realised it after losing that sense of comfort and familiarity. take for example the transport system, would you rather have a “world class” train system everyday at a cheap cost or bargain your way and get stuck in traffic in taxis?

as a visual artist, i usually compensate my lack of technical skill as a “photographer” with photoshop. hahaha all jokes aside, i’m sure everyone came across light panning trails like this everywhere on instagram since it is increasingly popular not only for its amazing aesthetics and visuals but for the satisfaction of getting it right on photoshop especially since photoshop can be very intimidating to beginners including myself.
here i combined the basics of panning with my camera and photoshop’s motion blur function to enhance my panning shot in shinjuku, tokyo. to learn how to do this, please check my instagram stories real soon for step by step tutorials and i’ll also be touching on selective split toning function on @lightroom mobile app! @lightroom#adobepartner@adobe@adobe creativecloud @photoshop
