Autumn Stroll, Edinburgh ::

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...


Autumn Stroll 2009

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...


A Stroll Through Greenbank Garden ::

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...


A Stroll Around The Museum of Transport

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?...


A Stroll Around Glasgow Green

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...


A Stroll Around Pollok Country Park

Was out for a stroll at Pollok Country Park with an old high school friend while taking some sample photos with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7. I wanted a different place for test shots instead of using the same spots all the time although having one or two similar places is still the best for comparison purposes I suppose. I think the last...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part VII, The Rural Areas

Well well, time flies. It's almost time for me to return to the UK so this will probably be my last post before then. If the urban surroundings of the "concrete forest" (as Hong Kong people refer to the high rise building surroundings) or tourist attractions don't tempt you, you could always visit the rural areas where the shops are a...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part VI, Tsim Sha Tsui

I carried the same mini tripod I used at The Peak so the pictures are fairly sharp but it's hard capturing the shapes of all the bright neon light signs. Making my way to the harbour. Lots of roadblocks set up so you have to use the underground subways. Night shots of this place are aplenty so again I thought I'd go for some daytime shots too...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part V, Victoria Peak

This is Central where another of the tourist "traps" are, Victoria Peak. I've visited the place before as a kid but didn't really appreciate the view at the time so having taken an interest in photography, I decided to go again for the view and some night shots. Dropped by Cafe de Coral for some chicken beef burger sausage rice . It's not...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part IV, Import Goods

Spent some time going around the stores to see if I could find some of the import goods I was planning to order online before I left for Hong Kong. Just get off at Causeway Bay and you'll find an exit that connects to the building. A giant walking piece of raw meat! That guy (or girl?) must be being boiled alive in there with the hot weather...
