Sign Photograph Collection from UK

November 23, 2008

There are lots of distinguished signboards in UK. I enjoyed taking those photos since the first day of my travel. At there, I also found out a good sign photo collection which I never thought about it before. I remembered that it came up to my idea while I was looking for a place to eat.  Right!!.. It was a restaurant/pub signboard.

A design of the sign is quite fascinating. I’m not sure whether or not it’s kind of English style. Anyhow, it made me kept looking and chasing the photos when I walked along the road throughout my trip.

Results from Weight Training

November 17, 2008

Yes, it really was a weight training for me when I had a chance to use the Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS lens last weekend. For those photographers who carry this lens for everyday shooting…wow! please take my bows.

There is no need to mention how good of photo resolution that you get from one of the best Canon L-series lens. But one thing I do like to suggest “use it without a tripod when you want to build upper arm muscles”, “use it without a tripod to testing how strong your bicep muscles is” and eventually “use it without a tripod when you really need a weapon to self-defense!!! 😉

Christmas Tree in Season at Central World Plaza, Bangkok

November 16, 2008

It might be a bit early for Christmas season’s celebration in the month of November. At the Central World Plaza in Bangkok, however, there’s getting start a sense of winter season already. A huge Chirstmas tree has been placed in the middle of seven-storey atrium recently. Like every year, it becomes a great view and background of a photography.  People will come and enjoy their shooting with the giant tree. There will be more and more people when the Chirstmas and New Year period is closely. Likewise, a full decoration of the greeting season at there.

Goat vs Sheep in New Zealand

November 11, 2008

I got an inspiration of this post from one of my blog reviewers. Because of DoReMe’s comment to my post “A beginning of Sign Photograph Collection“, I then had a question to myself if I totally misunderstood what a molded figure looks like at the photo of Omarama’s sign.

Goat or Sheep?? I thought, it is a sheep figure. DoReMe thought, it is a goat figure. Or… it is kind of a hybrid. Interesting point, don’t you think? – Just for fun, anyway.

A beginning of “Sign” photograph collection

November 9, 2008

I initiated “Sign” photograph collection in many years ago. Because I wanted to keep memorable feeling of my road trip in New Zealand. It began with an idea how I can mark all destinations I visited and drove pass in the country that I used to dream about. Furthermore, there were many stylish and creative signboards which made me joyful to amassing them.

I keep looking for signs and fulfill my own collection when I do travel since then. Let me share what I’ve got with you.
