Focal Length:300mm
Shutter:1/0 sec
Camera:Canon EOS 450D

12nn. and we still have no lunch prepared so we decided to head on to ramaniyah. mall where most pinoys meet. before we left the house i prepared the two cameras so we can go tripping near the coastline after. the sun is up and it was very humid but still didnt dishearten us to go on a walk at the park and take some shots. after all this was the first time i brought my cam outside, at last! of course we were so cautious that mutawahs(their priests) might catch us coz we were like paparrazis with no subject except the birds and the trees but still we went on our way. by the way, photography is not allowed on public places thats why i mentioned the mutawahs.

so we moved from point to point and just shoot away. it really was hot that afternoon thats why the only place we can hide from the scorches of the sun was the shadows of the trees and the kiddie obstacle course playground which was covered with a tent. this is also the reason why it didnt take us long and to decided going home.

so here are some of the shots i took. it was worth a try. besides im a beginner at photography.
