Spot the difference…2/2

Time Square, until we meet again…, originally uploaded by CeeKay’s Pix.

Now, compare the previous photo with this? Do you see a difference? If you are using Firefox, you would see a world of a difference. The 2 files have been embedded with different color profiles. I’ve been toying with using Adobe Lightroom 1.0 for Mac OS X and I have been exporting the my photos using either AdobeRGB (1998) or ProPhoto color spaces.

I was wondering why my photos turned out dull when viewed from Cheryl’s notebook when I fired up Firefox on my Mac and discovered the same issue as well.After Googling around, it turns out that AdobeRGB and ProPhoto is used for printing. For the best color reproduction on screen for most browsers (IE, Safari and Firefox), the graphic files should be saved under the sRGB color profile.Darn…this means that I would have to respost the New York photos all over again! Or maybe not…just download Safari 3.0 for (now for Mac and Windows!) to see photos as how I intended them to look like.

I’ve just uploaded the photo set of our recent Bangkok vacation with the family. I’m also using the flickr “Blog This” feature to connect to this blog.

These are some photos that I had taken during the last Hari Raya Haji event in Pekan, Pahang. The guest of honour was the Deputy Prime Minister of Malaysia, Dato’ Seri Najib Tun Abdul Razal. Click on the picture below to go to my Flickr photo set.

Hari Raya Haji in Pekan, Pahang

Photo Journal 12 Aug 2004

“La Bodega is fully booked,” the usherer said impatiently when asked. I looked around and I saw rows of empty tables with tiny signs reading “Reserved” sitting innocently on top of them. Apparently, they had an event that evening so we were asked to proceed to The Lounge.


Normally, a place with a name like “The Lounge” brings to mind stuffiness and pretentious settings but it turned out to be a nice cosy place. The highlight of this place is the sofa sitting area that resembled a very plush living room. We didn’t participate, but groups of young people can be seen boisterously playing board games, burning the hours away with the rolls of their dices. As the night continued, voices which started as murmurs gained in volume because by then alcohol has seeped deeply into the souls of the patrons there, releasing from them, the thoughts, desires and fears that were normally locked by sobriety.

As for us, the adventure was more decent. We had some tapas, more than a few drinks, 2 and a half packs of Marlboro Menthol Lights and called it a night.
