From Russia with Laugh
To tell you the truth, I have missed this circus for 4 years! And guess what this year, I’m gonna watch it no matter what! I got the flyers like 3 weeks before the event starts, and called to book tickets a week before the event, and luckily though I got through and eventually got 5 seats reserved on my behalf. Joerg, Soomi, Dave & Kok Hoong agreed to join. Therefore, I had enough quota of kakis for this event.
It is a nostalgic moment as my last circus that I had ever been before was with my grandparents in KL when I was around 5 (I guess). Always wanted to see one whenever there’s a troupe coming to town but missed it way to often cos of work committments. Sadly though the Moscow State Circus (MSC) doesn’t involve any animals. So its a 100% human thang’. At least the Russian babes make up towards my disappointment though *lol
From Russia with Laughter (not the Bond flick aight)
The show kick start with some intro from the host, then some clowns – merely lite stuff to start with. Then followed by the babes, babes and more babes, strong man, cross-dressers, acrobats, stuntmans, stuntwomans, clowns, more clowns and even more clowns.
I managed to put my A95 to the test as this is a rare occassion to test your cam to the fullest extent. I tried fireworks and now – circus! Most of the time when shooting, I had to place the cam on my thighs elevated. Set as the slowest shutter and fast to medium apature, I captured the moments like the lame Konica advert did, and yes with some trial & errors of course *doh*.
Here are some ‘artwork’ from the moments:
Clowny tryina be funny
The peeps with me
Some lite stuff to begin with
Vector regeneration. Can you do it? The Russos can.
Clown act – they ain’t funny, they are the Russ.
