Ryan and I have been planning to cover the Youth Fight For Jobs event about a month ago and it’s finally here! As stated in the website, Euston Station was the nearest station to the assembly area so without hesitation, we bought our tickets.

When we got there, like tame animals being released into the wild, we had totally no idea where to go or what to do. We walked aimlessly for about 20 minutes before we met a group of people holding the message boards. We joined them and eventually, we got to the assembly area in time. We had a quick breakfast and off we went to shoot!

         

At first, there were not many people around so I thought, “this would be a pretty small protest”. As the clock ticks, the assembly area started to fill up with participants. Some of them where preparing their message boards, some came all dressed up, there were few that had their morning coffee, and some of them were even rehearsing. If you are interested in these social group activities, they have booths where you can register yourself to get newsletters from them. You don’t have to make your own message boards if you don’t want to because they also have booths selling those boards and other merchandise.

The march started around 12.30pm, guided and guarded by policemen and women. At the assembly, there were about 300-400 protestors, as they march, other bystanders started to join in the crowd and the numbers grew up to about 1000. Read full report here.

I finally got my sleep after staying awake for more than 36 hours doing assignment! Yes, it’s last minute group work, but to be honest I think we did pretty well. 😀 One assignment down, 4 more to go!!

By the way, the protest in London is today and we (Ryan and I) are excited about it! We’ll be leaving for London around 9am, hopefully we’ll get some good shots! We’ll be reporting it right after the protest is done, so stay tuned! 😀

cheers!

Ryan found this book in the library today and it’s an interesting one. In fact, VERY interesting one.

 Written by P.C.T’UNG & D.E.POLLARD, first published in 1982.

The thing is I am not sure if this book is for the Chinese to learn English or the other way round but it really cracked us up. Click the image to enlarge it.

 What is that (M) for!?

And finally, my all time favorite!….

 It doesn’t even make any sense!!!!

Hope you guys enjoyed that!

cheers!

I went to the car boots sale yesterday morning and got myself this….

ZEISS IKON NETTAR

 The exterior of this system is good but with some minor scratches that could only be seen from a close range.

 The glass is clear, shutter seems to work at the accurate speed, but the aperture doesn’t seem to work. Servicing is needed, so if any of you out there (around UK) knows where I can get it fixed, do let me know. Thanks!!

 This camera is well-kept in the leather case hence the cleanness of the body and I bought this for a surprising £2!!

I wouldn’t want to bore you with too much information about this camera, but if you are interested you can read it here.

Thanks for viewing!

Cheers!

Is your room too empty? Want to decorate your house with wildlife photographs? Then don’t hesitate to check out Nick Bandt’s gallery here!! You can choose the photos you like and just order your print! 😀

To be honest I was never interested in looking at wildlife photographs, because it is always the same old thing. But Nick Bandt changed everything, I actually spent my time looking through photo by photo and it is amazing! Credit goes to Ryan Lee Bhaskaran for giving me Nick’s website. 😀

cheers!
