In response to the WPC Photo Challenge: Ambiance
I have been super-busy lately, so falling slow on taking pictures. My expectations of the pictures I take are also getting higher, so QC is also getting somewhat tighter. 😛 Without further ado, let us take a look at people among geometry, people in swimming pools and people among cosplayers and sexy pillow cases. 😀
Ah… anime conventions with their crazy and fun merchandise and cosplayers. Always something to delight in. Feeling lonely? Get yourself a bolster pillow case with decorated with the anime girl of your choice. Nights are so much warmer with your arms and legs entwined around the girl of your dreams. 😛 – WY
A gallery for a popular theme: life among urban geometry plus a number of architectural shots from Singapore. –WY
Yes, I know I have not been updating this blog as much I would like. I have been busy, and also contemplating a website re-design.
It’s a very interesting time as a Nikon user. They have not made any announcements prior to Photokina 2016 as I expected – which means any announcements are likely to be made next Monday in the pre-Photokina conference. This is highly irregular, as Japanese companies usually make announcements ahead of time to get the press interested so they can get good coverage even before the event starts. Continue reading
The City Hall is quite an interesting building, and this green wall is especially imposing. Now it isn’t the kind of place to end up on anyone’s travel plans, but is a relatively interesting building to drop by for maybe an hour if you have the time.
This is probably my last post on Seoul. It took me 4 months to curate and process through all the images I took in April! That’s an advantage of having a full-time job I guess. 🙂 Maybe I’ll find the opportunity to travel again at the end of the year. Next stops: Just a little bit of Tokyo from a very short business trip, then it’s back to Singapore. – WY
As day ends, a man pulls a loaded cart along a road between Sinchon and Hongik. In every modern city there will be those who have “fallen through the cracks” and live below the average income. I spent much time in the more touristy areas, so saw little of the harsh realities. Except perhaps, this one glimpse. – WY
And that concludes my wanderings between Sinchon and Hongik earlier this year in April. Yes, my pictures are hopelessly back-dated. I’m working on trying to get images processed and updated ASAP, but I guess being able to shoot so much that I could not keep up with posting is sort of a good thing too. 🙂 – WY
To be honest I am no longer sure whether I was wandering in Sinchon or Hongik. Where one becomes the other is lost on a foreigner like myself. Still, fun place to explore. It gets really exciting and busy on the weekends as selected roads are closed to traffic and pedestrians get to walk on the roads. Unfortunately I could only drop by on a weekday. There is a closed tourist station with a notice stating that it is closed due to “declining number of foreign visitors”. Perhaps it is no longer as busy as it was two years ago. Still, an interesting place to drop by. Make sure it is a weekend to get the full experience! – WY
