It feels like a while since I wrote something for this blog.
You will probably have noticed I haven’t been writing for my blog much lately nor have I done any more translations. The reason behind that is that I am very much preoccupied with my full time job these days. That said, I still play games and watch the odd Anime show… Just not as much as I used to.
For the very same reason it’s been a while since I went out for a photo stroll and practice all the photography techniques I’ve been reading up about here and there.
Hmmm, seems I’ve been visiting a lot of parks and gardens lately ^^;
Greenbank Garden is apparently marked as another tourist spot in Glasgow but also a member of the National Trust for Scotland – One of the many places that are being run or preserved by the organisation and if you’re not a member of the club, you have to pay to get in.
As small as it may seem when they hand you a little guide, there’s quite a lot of detail to take in.
GlasgowのGreenbank Garden (グリーンバンク花園) です。入ったことないですが、グラスゴーの観光地の一つらしい。
Went out again this year to capture some seasonal autumn themed photos to use for my blog’s banner except this time I was using a DSLR instead of a compact. I went to a number of different places this year and captured many photos but not all of them turned out good of course.
Originally I wanted to capture autumn coloured leaves of different shapes and sizes such as from sycamore and beech trees but when I returned home to have a look at the on-screen results, a bit too much rot was showing through or the colours weren’t gradiented enough to use. So, I decided to set them up in rounded squares instead as side decorations and use the photos that did come out well as the main banner.
The following are some of the photos I took which you’ll find used in the current randomised banners. I go on quite a bit about photography so be warned ^^;
Never been to the East End of Glasgow before and I’m pretty sure my parents never brought me here either. I decided to take a look when I saw a sign pointing to “Glasgow Green” park while hunting for interesting places to practice my photography skills.
I have to say it looks very plain arriving from the west entrance. There’s the old McLennan Arch, a small playground for kids and a large open space.
Another place I’ve never been in before but the sound of old transport sounded like it would be an interesting place to get used to my DSLR and lens. Entering the Glasgow Museum of Transport, which is about a 5 to 10 minutes walk from Glasgow University, this set up caught my eye.
Makes you feel like you’ve gone back in time, doesn’t it?
