Need more time with my babies!

The days at the Sepang F1 Circuit are really hectic but it was fun being with the team. Grom & Kroch had great time too, shooting the cars on the track whenever they got the chance, while keeping in mind their main objective as the Medical Team Photographers!

Infact, I had a couple of good shots of the cars too...just to share with you here:

red hot disc hunt was succesful....
though some ppl may say these are merely panning shots....
....but who cares!

The sessions were hectic, especially when I have to manage the whole team and at the same time take care of auditors/ FIA officials for any inspection/ audit of the team located on the service tracks. Most of the time I'd came back home with just enough energy to get a bath and sleep! The kids would already be fast asleep by the time I arrive home...and they would still in their slumber when I am off to the track the next morning!! So, I'd say, I miss them a lot and I think they miss me too! To top that off, the FIA decided to run another day of testing, which means the Mualid break is a goner for me!!! Arrghhhhh!!!

Well anyway, the weekend was great. Spent most of the time with the kids and if I have to "qada" my sleep & rests, I'd do it with them - they'd either sleep around me, on top of me or use me as their pillow...and when they are awake, they'd use me as their wresting mattress, motorbike, boat, train, car, bus or whatever their highly imaginative minds would want to do....what a joy!

Last Sunday I decided to do a bit of "amal" work - free photography for Kajang's Maulidur Rasul Parade - the first time after 9 years without....
Here...some of my works...

At the end of Sunday after postings some works including a couple of these images online and given some feedback by some 'OTAI'....I was kinda "frustrated", with the effort and all, some people thinks these are just normal shots anybody could have done.....

Well, that's when I realized I have not been doing the shots that I really love to do....and set off to the playground with my "kena beli utkevent & moments shoot" lense - a used Sigma APO DG Macro 70-300mm....shot as many shots as I could creatively compose and the feeling of nothing else matters has been revived!!

Here..some of my precious treasure...see more in my flickr lah!

I love my sister...

..and today if my first day in the new department...kinda cool...cuz I'd be in the office only for 2 days and then off to the track again!
