This Mac corner is the "hospital" for friends of Macs only! (Malfunctioned due to too much gaming and homework at the same time). 

Science park? No, it is a science garden - a garden in the School of Science and Technology, Singapore. Or a garden for future scientists and engineers to talk and think!

Who knew what they were talking about? 
Surely, gossip loh!  
How do I know?
You see, nothing on the table at the canteen! Definitely not for lunch la!

Behind the science park, I mean, behind this park! What do you see behind this park? Some buildings under the blue sky with floating clouds - yah,  poetic enough! 

They are not footballers, although there is a goal post at the right hand side of the picture. 
Some of them are hopping on the grass, so they are "grasshoppers", aren't they?

There is no specific time for photography as nowadays new technology offers all possibilities for photographers to take photos at any place, any time, any circumstances.

Aperture refers to the lens diaphragm opening inside a photographic lens. The size of the diaphragm opening in a camera lens regulates the amount of light passing through onto the film inside the camera the moment when the shutter curtain in camera opens during an exposure process. 
Focus refers to the adjusting of the range that affects the distance from where the object is photographed. 
Shutter speed is ‘the amount of time that the shutter is open’. It controls the amount of time that your film, or digital sensor, is exposed to light. In effect, the shutter determines what image is captured on your film.
ISO in ISO Speeds stands for International Standards Organisation and a few decades ago they came up with a standard for measuring the speed of film called the ISO Speed. The speed of a film(ISO speed) is the measure of how fast the film responds to light. A low ISO speed means a film responds slowly to light, a fast ISO speed means the film responds quickly.
Metering is a process which involves the camera taking a light level reading from the scene and selecting the appropriate combination of aperture and shutter speed to set the required exposure value.
White balance is getting the colours in your images as accurate as possible.
