Port Elliot

I have always been fascinated by the waves at Port Elliot, SA. I usually just pick a rock, sit down, feel the wind blowing against my face and the minutes just fly by.

I'd love to be able to do portraits.

My work brings me face-to-face with countless nameless faces and expressions which I'd love to shoot with my camera. But hey, that wouldn't be ethical in my situation.

Anit here is a friend I had brekky with a couple of days back. Good thing he was more than willing to smile for the shot.

Took a walk today around the botanic gardens... it was perfect spring weather and I needed a quiet place to study. Home was not an option... that would have just meant sleeping in.

If there's one thing about Adelaide that Manila just doesn't have, its these serene parks where you could just sit around and lose yourself without being bothered for the rest of the day. You can choose any park bench or you could simply lie down on the grass in some corner somewhere.

Here are a few other pictures I took at the Botanic Gardens...

Gazebo, originally uploaded by lesleykng.

One night as Sarah and I were driving though King William Road we saw this couple dressed in formal attire dancing in the gazebo. I thought it would make an excellent photo op but rather unfortunately, they had left by the time I returned to take pictures of the gazebo.

In between a series of long night shifts, Kitkat, Sarah and I thought it would be a good idea to head over to the beach and have a coffee. Afterall, the weather was starting to warm... a welcome change after a long chilly winter. We found it to be a remarkably windy day (more stormy actually...) and the waves were lashing at the normally calm waters along Henley Beach.

We weren't the only ones to take notice as a few kids would walk up the jetty with their boards and jump off into the water and ride the waves to the shore. FUN! FUN! FUN!

Too bad I had my camera with me.
