Sky Shot at Cowcaddens | カウカッデンズでの空写真 | Cowcaddens天空相片

Been a while since I made an entry in the photography section so while I was out yesterday to pick up my tickets for the Evangelion 2.0 UK premiere, I decided to go for a little location hunting again.

Sky and silhouette shots are very common so making such photos stand out is tough but then again, photography is art so what one likes is a matter of personal preference – It might just be a picture you flip through and forget or, it might be one that you can spend time on admiring the details. I liked the way this one turned out, though. The night sky starting to creep in while the golden sunset can still be seen in the horizon and a skeleton structure to the left instead of your usual solid shapes.

長い間に写真を撮らなかったなぁ。だから昨日、エヴァ:破のチケットを買いに出掛けた時またちょっとお散歩してきました。

空やシルエットの写真はかなり人気あるから人に注目されるのはちょっと難しいですね。まあ、写真は美術だから人はそれぞれの好みがあるって当然なことだろう。でも、この写真はちょっと気に入った。夜空は段々近付いたり、金色の夕焼けも見えたり、そして左に「骨」のような建物が見えますよね。

很久沒出外拍攝了所以作天去買「新世紀福音戰士:破」英國首映的標時去試試找好地方。

天空和有剪影的相片有許多人拍攝所以很難有特色。不過攝影是一種藝術所以每個人的品味會不同。這相片不錯。可看了夜空慢慢到來,遙遠金色的夕陽和左邊未完成的建築物。

Santa Dash 2009 | サンタダッシュ2009 | 2009年聖誕老人賽跑

On Sunday morning, over 4000 people dressed up in Santa costumes gathered together at Glasgow’s George Square for the annual fund raising Santa Dash event and I went along to watch for the first time.

日曜日は4000人以上がサンタに仮装しジョージスクエアで集め、カンパの為に毎年一度の「サンタダッシュ」に参加しました。僕は初めて見に行って来ました。

Winter Noon | 冬の昼 | 冬之中午

Was out and about in Glasgow as usual and during noon, when the sun is at its highest point in the sky, the town was lit up with a rare warm golden hue as if it was sunset, casting long dramatic shadows of the busy crowd across the grounds.

いつも通りグラスゴーで出かけていましたがお昼になったら、太陽が一番の高いところへ昇った時、町が暖かい金色の光に溢れた。足元を見れば長いドラマチックな影を見えました。

在格拉斯哥平日中出外的中午,大陽昇到最高點的時候,市中心被暖暖金黃色的光包起,也看到長長劇變的影子。

Naturally, it was another moment I thought that would make an interesting photo. Of course, I done a bit of my own post-processing of the RAW by knocking up the colour temperature, doubling it for a deeper gold colour and increased the black point for darker shadows.

あの時は「面白い写真になれるだろ、これ」とふっと思ってきました。もちろん、後は自分のプロセッシングもしました。RAWをもっと濃いな金色があるために色温度を二倍にして、もっと深い黒色のためにブラックポイントも上げました。

我即刻想可以做一張好相片。當以我有把RAW做一小小的調正。為了相片的光變得更深色我把色温提昇兩倍以後也提昇黑點度把影子變得更黑。

A Stroll Through Greenbank Garden | グリーンバンク花園 | Greenbank花園

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。

這裏是格拉斯哥的Greenbank花園。我還未入過去但好像是格拉斯哥観光點之一。

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 McLennan Arch, a small playground for kids and a large open space.

At Glasgow Green.
