Best Other Photography Spots

Gastown

Born in 1867, Gastown is now home to many coffee shops, souvenir stores, restaurants and nightspots. You can suddenly get a different buzz once you enter this area as the architecture here delivers a different feeling from the rest of the city. Narrowed streets and stone pavement. All the historical…

Selenkay Conservancy

Selenkay conservancy is part of the Amboseli eco system though not part of the national park. We stay at the conservancy and choose to do day trips to the park. Since its a continuous ecosystem, animals move freely between the conservancy and park. Apart from the beautiful wildlife, the conservancy…

Arlington National Cemetery

The moment you step onto these hallowed grounds, you instantly feel that wave of emotion hit you. I wanted to talk a bit about the feature photograph here because I think this is the best photograph I have taken so far.

Chicago Botanic Garden

I visited Chicago and this garden in April when the weather was still cool but many of the spring flowers were in bloom. I visited mid-day and since I was mostly shooting macro images of flowers, I loved having the extra light outdoors for deeper depth of field even without…

Middleton Place

This place is in the site of an ancient plantation. You can freely walk there, in the riverside, and enjoy the nice gardens. There is also a part where people are making pottery or barrel as in the 18th/19th century and you can talk with them. If you go there,…

Stray Cats in Turkey

The cats in Istanbul when napping do not seem to mind a lens poking towards their face. While some of the male cats during spring were a bit feisty at times, most were calm and if you fed them some may rub against you for a quick cuddle.

Lake Ontario Waterfront Parks

Waterfront parks provide access to Lake Ontario in this primarily urban area. Not a dramatic sweeping landscape, but an easily accessible site with pleasant views and interesting features. Redeveloped from a long-time industrial lakeside processing plant, the area now has walking and riding paths along the shoreline, which includes stretches…

Ngaben Ceremony

Ngaben is a Balinese funeral ceremony. For Hindunese people, there is caste system. Higher someone’s caste means the Ngaben ceremony is more luxurious. But the luxurious Ngaben ceremony can not be found any time. The ceremony is not held right after someone passed away, because they have to set the…

Kecak Dance

Kecak Dance in Uluwatu is the best because the performance starts at the afternoon until the sunsets. It is also located on the edge of the cliff. It is a great dance performance with the stunning scenery on the background of the stage.
