Galway, Ireland – Oranmore Castle by the sea in Galway (taken on June 12, 2017)
Edinburgh, Scotland, taken on August 28, 2015
Last Friday, friends and I went to see a symphony in Edinburgh during the International Festival. On the way back to the train station at night, we chanced upon some firework displays up on the hill, right above a lit Edinburgh Castle, under the full moon! The contrast between the colours of the fireworks, the castle, and the moon was amazing, and even though I didn’t have Mr. Nikon with me, I couldn’t resist trying to capture a photo with my phone, which turned out decent, I’d say. The original photo in colour was already stunning, so I thought I’d find out what the photo would look like in black and white. An unconventional attempt…but here it is. Make sure you do check out the original! (See the original photo in colour.)
[Travel time] Before I went to Prague, in my mind, the city was a land of wondrous castles that jumped out of fairy tales. And it was. From the top of the Petrin Tower (mini-Eiffel Tower), the view towards the Prague castle and the entire castle district was quite magical. It really did look like a miniature toy-built model of a storybook setting.
