One of the things that I liked when I traveled in Washington, D.C. was the Smithsonian institution where we could enter various museums for free. I spent one day visiting three museums of the institution which one of them was American Art Museum.

There was an installation of art called “Electronic Superhighway” created by Nam June Paik as a tribute to USA.

I was amazed by the glowing lights and those televisions. It was the intriguing piece, and it certainly captured the eyes of visitors.

I also snapped photos of other interesting arts. Like this one that the glittering parts of the picture worked well with the overall picture.

There was an extra exhibition during our visit named “The Art of Video Games”. They showed and let people play some games in the past such as Pacman and Mario Brothers.

There were variety of arts which I thought that they were profoundly worth the visit. Photography, Painting, and installation.

I truly enjoyed a trip there even though we didn’t have much time looking around all of the arts. Hopefully, I will have chances to be in Washington, D.C. again.

Shopping Spree

The 4th Monday of the month would be Challenger’s choices for lensandpenbysally‘s Phoneography and Non-SLR Digital Devices Photo Challenge. Sally is still on her trip and she will be back on the next Monday. However, I’d like to keep on posting photos for this challenge so I decided to go for ‘Object’ which I chose a figure from Line Characters called Brown bear.

Thirsty?

Hooray! I’ve finally survived the hottest day in Bangkok (my city) according to our National Meteorological Department. They’ve forecasted that the temperature in Bangkok would be the highest one as the Sun would be perpendicular to Bangkok today (27 April 2014).

Thailand’s weather is hot and humid, and we are now in Summer which April is usually the hottest month of the season. And how did I take on today’s hot weather? No, I didn’t turn on an air conditioner in my room. In order to save my energy, I just did nothing except lying on my bed, reading a book and playing a game on my iPad as the weather was way too hot to do anything. And I drank a lot of cool water.

I didn’t drink it from a glass though. My water container was a vacuum flask. Still, the above image could represent the iced cooling system that kept me survive during the hot day like this. That image was also the one I sent to present on the Monochrome Madness post co-hosted by Leanne Cole and Laura Macky. It was the first time I joined this weekly madness even though it has already come to the 8th week.

This monochrome gathering really provides me with the opportunity to observe the world through other people’s eyes. I truly enjoy seeing their works as they are profoundly inspiring.

Snappy H’appy Photo Challenge Week 11 – Text on photo

This week’s challenge from weliveinaflat and firebonnet is about one of my favourite photo editors on mobile phone. I’m always keen on searching for applications providing Text on photo in the Apps store. My iPhone currently has 11 apps that specifically support only text on photo. The one that I picked to participate in Snappy H’appy is Path On. This app allows us to write text in various shape such as spiral, circle and custom shapes which I think the custom option is definitely cool.

Anyone who has been to Gardens by the Bay in Singapore might be familiar with this view of Ferris Wheel and Round Tops of Super Trees. I captured this image while walking from MRT station to the gardens during my trip to attend the Sigur Ros concert. It was my 2nd time travelling to Singapore within the past 12 years so there were a lot of new things to catch up on this trip. One of things that I wanted to do was to visit Marina Sand Bay and Gardens by the Bay.

We went to the Gardens in the evening  so that we could avoid strong sunlight.

We didn’t stay long as we didn’t access Conservatories and Sky walk. We just looked and walked around under those futuristic giant trees. We then decided to leave the Gardens. And I got another picture with the lights on Ferris Wheel and Super Trees.
