Hello there,

My name is Chee Siang and my interest in taking photos started sometime back in 2003 using a Sony compact camera and progressing till today using a Nikon D800.

Travel, landscape, macro and astrophotography are my preferred type of photography although I’ll shoot just about anything else as well. I prefer having my photos as is taken without post processing or with minimal for correction and desired emphasis. I’ll always try to keep things to the minimum to preserve the actual scene.

Drop me a mail if you are interested in how I post process some of my photos!

As for this site, why fifth october for the URL? Because that is my birthday.

Do enjoyed looking at my photos and come back for more photos as I find time to get out more.
