I was up on the Little Mountain here in Vung Tau again to take pictures and I was very lucky to get two butterflies in a single shot on my way down. There were actually 3 of them, flitting about the bush looking for choice branches to lay eggs.

I was travelling along the beach with my wife when I noticed this beautiful sunset.
My wife was patient enough to wait for me while I took my time to take enough pictures to piece this image.
Of the images I too, I selected 30 to merge into this HDR Panorama. First, I merged 30 HDR images using Photomatix, and then using Photoshop CS6, manually align and blend the HDR output into this panorama.
It took a long time as I was taking all the pictures handheld and there are problems with misalignment. In addition, the boats were not sitting still due to the waves.

Some time earlier this year, imperfection from msnguyen.wordpress.com, who grew up in Vung Tau in her childhood, requested me to take a picture of her school if I’m ever nearby. I did pass by the area a few times, but for once, I did manage to explore the area further. The entrance to this school is facing a narrow alleyway, so I’m not sure if it is the same school that Imperfection went to (based on Google Maps, it seems to be the only school here).
If it isn’t, then I’ll have to try harder next time.
When I was there, a group of children and their teacher were having a rehearsal of some sorts, while some girls were playing some rope game on the grounds.
Was on my way to work yesterday when I saw 2 novice monks guiding their frail elder to the beach to enjoy the morning sun. The purple car is their transport.
Today I brought some colleagues from Singapore around Vung Tau City. Of course, we can’t miss the highlight of the place, the Jesus Christ Statue, largest of its kind in Asia.
Here’s the shot I took today with the many coloured flags and the banner proclaiming “Lord Jesus Christ King” (direct translation of the large text)
