I once heard an interesting concept about food and cooking: Truly great chefs are not those who create unique fine-dining cuisines with expensive and rare ingredients that are only accessible by the rich. Instead, the really great chefs are those who can make normal everyday dishes taste fantastic and rise above its peers. The reason is because it is easy to make something unique look and taste good. But making the ordinary taste amazing? – That’s the true mark of a superior craftsman. In other words, that chef in his fancy restaurant whipping up hundred-dollar fine-dinging dishes is an inferior cook to that guy in a corner store making fantastic burgers that can draw long queues of waiting, salivating customers day-after-day.
Indeed, the same idea might apply to the art of photography. Anyone can make an interesting subject, well, look interesting. 😉 But making the ordinary look interesting? Now that’s the real challenge! Continue reading
Singapore 2017: The War Memorial, A Flower For The Lost

Singapore went through a Japanese occupation during the world war 2.

In which we take a peek in the National Museum of Contemporary Art within the Seoul Grand Park. I don’t normally make pictures of other people’s art work, but this must be a signature installation that people of the world hardly know about!
Like I mentioned in an earlier post, I spent too little time in the Seoul Grand Park. But I identified this museum as a must-go place and was glad I made this decision. Sure contemporary art isn’t everyone’s cup of tea – I’ll be the first to admit that I really dislike most contemporary art produced in recent years. There was stuff that I just passed by with no interest. However, there was also stuff that I found interesting – such as this massive contraption. So do drop by if you ever visit the Seoul Grand Park! – WY
This is a “fun” experiment. I usually do not take pictures of other people’s art work and do not make things this saturated. However, I thought I will do this just once for experimental fun.
This area is dotted with art sculptures and graffiti. I guess it takes a geek to recognize that this contraption with two solar panels on top is made to look like a robot. 🙂 – WY
In which we look at a scene on the street and a cute, cuddly giant bear.
Well I’ve got my new PC and finally settled into my new home. I have two weeks of intensive travel ahead of me though, so expect this blog to fall somewhat silent again. The bad news is, half of that travel is work-related so expect no images to come out of that. The good news is, the other half is leisure-related, so maybe I can get some good pictures out of that!
Some images before I leave: Of people walking under the hot sun with a phone, a look at a hotel, and some Vietnamese vermicelli.
