The UFO Has Landed - Singapore ArtScience Museum Reflection

Welcome. The UFO has landed. On the left is the lotus-shaped ArtScience Museum in Singapore's Marina Bay. Its roof is retractable, providing a waterfall through the roof of collected rainwater when closed in the day. The reflection on the right is the Marina Bay Sands casino and hotel.

Rain Oculus - Marina Bay Sands, Singapore
Comments (0)

Rain Oculus - Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

This is the Rain Oculus inside Marina Bay Sands hotel & casino in Singapore. Periodically a torrent of water (6,000 gallons per minute) is released from the clear inverted dome 2 stories above which has an off-center hole which causes a huge swirling effect as the water drains out the bottom. This creates a huge waterfall from below. Basically it's like being underneath a clear, clean toilet bowl. In this photo you can see people enjoying Sampan Rides in Chinese wooden boats along the canals of the Marina Bay Sands around the Rain Oculus. Another interesting fact is that when you're above at the edge of the dome, it acts like an audio parabolic reflector so you can hear people whispering on the other side.

Petra Jordan - The Treasury - Indiana Jones in Real Life

Approaching Al Khazneh or The Treasury at Petra, Jordan. This was one of those moments that you wish for as a photographer but rarely can plan. As we hiked through the sandstone gorge in Petra, we rounded a corner and got our first glimpse of The Treasury, an impressive facade carved into the cliffs. Then out of nowhere this kid on a donkey came riding through the narrow passage to complete the scene. I fired off a couple shots, and this was the only one that came out. Quite a few films have been filmed here, including the last scenes of Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.

Inside Hagia Sophia, Istanbul

With this interior photo of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul, Turkey I tried to capture the scale of this gigantic structure. But even with my wide-angle lens, you're only seeing a small corner of this remarkable building. The Hagia Sophia is an interesting mix of Christian and Muslim art and architecture since it was first a Byzantine church, then an Ottoman mosque, and now a museum, and has been rebuilt multiple times. When I was there, much of the interior was being restored.

Amsterdam Canals: Herengracht & Brouwersgracht

This is one of the many canal intersections in Amsterdam, Netherlands just after sunset. This was my favorite section of Amsterdam canals because they were narrow, lined with interesting buildings and house boats, and had cool bridges across them as you see here. The streaks of light in the water are from a boat that passed by while I was taking photos. This is the intersection of Brouwersgracht and Herengracht canals (don't ask me how to pronounce them), just west of Amsterdam Centraal train station in the Jordaan section of Amsterdam. The Herengracht canal is one of the 4 main concentric half-circle canals that circle the center of the city. Brouwersgracht means "brewers' canal," so named because this canal used to have many breweries along it, most of which have now been converted into trendy warehouse apartments.

It seems I will never tire of shooting the Sydney Opera House due to its interesting shapes and the way it catches the sunlight. There is always a new angle or different light to capture. The sun was bursting through the clouds this particular day. Shot from one of the Sydney ferries as we took our usual trip to Circular Quay from Milsons Point.

Singapore Marina Bay: Helix Bridge, Marina Bay Sands, ArtScience Museum

In complete contrast to the Papuan rainforest from which I had just barely left, this was where I visited the evening of my layover in Singapore. Marina Bay in Singapore features some of the newest development in the city, and certainly some unique and modern architecture.

The bridge on the left is The Helix Bridge (or Double Helix Bridge), a cool pedestrian bridge with multiple lookout points which you can see in this photo.

This leads across the bay to the 55-story Marina Bay Sands: a casino, mall, and hotel which features 3 towers and a 1,100 ft long rooftop garden, infinity pool, and lookout point which you can see on top. This is currently the world's most expensive casino with 2,561 hotel rooms, a gigantic shopping mall, 2 theaters, an ice skating rink, and the world's largest atrium casino. An interesting fact about the casino is that Singaporeans have to pay S$100 to enter, but foreigners can enter for free. I'm assuming this is the nanny state's attempt to curb gambling addiction among its residents.

The lotus-shaped structure to the right is the ArtScience Museum. Its roof is retractable, providing a waterfall through the roof of collected rainwater when closed in the day.

Almost all of this area is reclaimed land that used to be ocean.

Double Helix Spiral Staircase - Vatican Museum

Double Helix Spiral Staircase - Vatican Museum

The beautiful spiral staircase at the Vatican Museum, from below. Designed by Giuseppe Momo in 1932, the broad steps are somewhere between a ramp and a staircase. They were designed to be wide and have a small enough amount of climb so that horses could walk up them. The stairs are actually two separate helixes, one leading up and the other leading down, that twist together in a double helix formation. I think it's really cool that this was designed many years before the discovery of the double helical DNA strand, which has now come to represent life itself.

Italian Man Drinking Espresso on the Narrow Streets of Como, Italy

This photo seems to say "I am Italian." It shows a typical scene in Italy: narrow cobblestone streets between stone buildings, the Italian flag, a man on the street drinking his espresso, and a bar. I took this photo in the town of Como at the south end of Lake Como.

I processed this photo as an HDR from a single RAW image, then converted to black & white (with some sepia), and then mixed back in some of the original colors to highlight the Italian flag, sign for the bar, and the man.

Villa del Balbianello: Luxury Villa on Lake Como, Italy

This amazing mansion on Lake Como, Italy is Villa del Balbianello. This villa has appeared in films including the Casino Royale Bond movie as well as Star Wars Episode II. The villa is built on the site of a Franciscan monastery, and the two towers which can be seen in the picture are the campanili of the convent church. Part of what makes Villa del Balbianello so striking is it's location perched on a skinny peninsula of the lake. One of the things that makes Lake Como so beautiful is the steep hillsides surrounding the lake which you can see in the distance.

This photo was taken a bit farther south from my previous Lake Como Villa photo in the commune of Lenno. You may also be interested in my Lago di Como at Dawn photo, Lake Como Cafe at Night photo and Italian Man Drinking Espresso photo.

We felt like we were on the Storybook Land canal boat ride at Disneyland as we passed many luxurious Italian villas on our way to the town of Bellagio. Yes, we did see the well-known villa that belongs to George Clooney, but it didn't look as impressive from Lake Como as this one.

Celtic Cross in the Forest: Irish Brigade Monument, Gettysburg
Comments (1)

Celtic Cross in the Forest: Irish Brigade Monument, Gettysburg

This is one of my favorite monuments at Gettysburg National Military Park. The granite monument topped with a traditional Celtic cross commemorates the Irish Brigade that fought in several key Civil War battles. At the base of the cross you can see an Irish wolfhound (symbol of loyalty) waiting for his master's return.

At the start of the Gettysburg campaign, the Irish Brigade (including the 116th Pennsylvania Infantry) numbered 530 men; 198 became casualties during the battle within these woods.

"Of those who in their manhood died to blot out Slavery's stain,
And rear aloft in all its pride, fair Freedom's flag again!
'Tis ours to raise this cross on high above the Irish dead,
Who showed mankind the way to die, when Truth and Freedom led."

-from Our Fallen Comrades, by William Collins, 1888.

Blue Pool Reflection - Hearst Castle Indoor Pool - Roman Pool

The spectacular azure indoor pool at Hearst Castle (Roman Pool). This is the most awesome swimming pool I have ever seen, and certainly the most beautiful pool bottom around. They show you this as the final highlight of the main tour, though they don't give you much time to take it all in. They also don't allow tripods on the tour, so I had to snap these away with a steady hand and a higher ISO than I would have liked.

The perfect place for rebellious Singaporeans to come. Bubble Gum Alley in San Luis Obispo, CA (SLO) is a 15-foot high by 70-foot long alley whose walls are covered in used bubble gum. Apparently this has been the spot to leave your used gum since the 50's, and it has survived at least 2 full cleaning attempts. The locals have long since given up on cleaning it, and leave it as a tourist attraction.

Old sardine cans lining the wall in the kitchen previously photographed. Many times canned sardines are the only meat available, and only if they've been brought in from the city. During our week stay in this village they didn't even have sardines to serve us (we went without meat of any kind). Why keep these cans? Any kind of storage container can be useful out in the village where few such things exist. Plus, they make great lamps with a simple wick and some kerosene.
