Photo of the month (November 2008)

Title: Squinting eyes and chipping skin
Location: Dharmikarama Burmese Temple, Penang, Malaysia
Date: 22 November 2008, 11.27am
Camera: Nikon D60 with Aperture: f/9.0, ISO Equiv.: 100

This photo was taken at the compound of the Burmese Temple. It was a SUPER HOT morning! The surrounding temperature is crazy - my neck was virtually burning. I saw some clay figurines around the temple - depicting traditional Burmese way of of life. As usual, I LOVE to take close-up shot. I zoom my NIKON D60 camera lens to this clay figurine and snapped two pictures. I am very delighted to discover the pictures turn out to be very unique. This picture itself gave an impression 'he' is not too comfortable with the heat and extreme sunlight. The eyes are squinting and the skins are peeling.
