My mad rush from finishing reservist to catch a night flight meant I forgot to bring along the camera charger after picking the camera up from my sis! Absolute genius! Which meant after all that trouble I think I managed to take like 10 photos with the camera.
Therefore, nearly all the photos in this album are courtesy of my ‘cameraman’, oops I meant boss’ – Ler.
Being in charge of the jumbotron was certainly something of a different perspective – you had to coordinate the camera views, replays & your own computer screen display whilst at the same time communicating with the judging tower. As Ler mentioned, it was prob. the best seat in the house (he meant sitting right behind me just enjoying the race of course!) Amidst all the mayhem, fortunately everything ran smoothly – even managed to snuck up a new slide before they announced the winner!
Watching FD Singapore without, and then FD Malaysia with only serves to highlight how vital visuals can be when a blaring crowd drowns away commentator Jarod’s commentary. It certainly added a different element to the race, I would say a definite must for any future events – a few more would be brilliant (& expensive too!).
The nature of my task meant I had few opportunities for photo taking (not that I had a camera with full battery!) or walking around to soak up the atmosphere, but nevertheless it was definitely an exciting experience being part of it.
