PS Vita Room Preview Event

Dropped by the PS Vita Room at Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow which lasted for just under a week from January 24th – 29th.

Nice friendly staff around. Even the security guards were being the doormen. I didn’t bother the staff with any questions since I read enough about the PSP successor ever since the rumour mill had been running so, I don’t know how knowledgeable they were though.

On demo were…

  • Uncharted: Golden Abyss
  • Rayman Origins
  • Everybody’s Golf
  • Gravity Rush (Super Stardust Delta?)
  • FIFA Football
  • Wipeout 2048
  • Escape Plan
  • Reality Fighters

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.

Evangelion 2.0 To Premiere at Glasgow Film Festival | ヱヴァンゲリヲン新劇場版:破がグラスゴー・フィルム・フェスティバルでで上映 | 新世紀福音戰士:破會在格拉斯哥電影節上映

It appears the second remake movie Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance will be on show next week in the UK on Monday 15th during the Glasgow Film Festival with subtitles. Since the Japanese DVD release won’t be out until May 26th apparently, I think I will go see it on the big screen and see how many people here turn up for the evening!

Will be interesting to see how big the Anime community is or how many Eva fans there are here. Never went to the cinema here to watch Anime before… ^^;


それに、グラスゴーにどれだけのアニメファンかエヴァファンがいるかちょっと気になるな(笑) 映画館でアニメ見るなんて今まで一度もなかった… ^^;


也可以看看Glasgow裏有幾多日本動畫迷或Eva迷。沒試過在這裏的戲院看過日本動畫 ^^;

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.

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.



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.
