Some Panorama/Wide-View Shots Of Places Visited
- by Joe Jr Yamut
First one is a shot of the Singapore central business district at night. I’m not sure where in particular I took this photo. I think it might have been at one of the waterfront promenades. While taking an evening stroll in one of the countless times that I’ve spent around this area, it is such a great way to unwind after a long day’s work with a can of beer on hand and just feel the wind on your face, the smell of the salty sea, and the bustling city in front of you.
Second and third photos were shot at Sydney, Australia. This awe-inspiring view of the Sydney harbour was taken atop one of the pylon lookouts on the Sydney Harbour Bridge. It was quite a climb several flights up but definitely worth it. Up there it could be very windy so watch out with your scarf and/or hat or the wind might suddenly snatch it from you. It was a warm, sunny day, with lazy, cottony clouds about. The view was just spectacular!
Then a camera click taken to capture a side of Melbourne’s beautiful sprawling city when I was at one of their tallest vantage points – Eureka Tower. Melbourne life could get pretty laid back. I mean stores close at around 6 PM? Or earlier even? Was truly shocked when I found out. Don’t fret though. A lot of bars/pubs and restaurants stay open later than that. That is why at around 4 PM, if I remember correctly, office people would already be heading out to the pubs to chug down some beer with friends and co-workers at the end of their shifts. Would love to be doing just that one of these days.
Lastly, this park right next to my place (one of the places) when I was still in Singapore where I would take jogs. That’s the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Normally I would take my runs in the evening where it is much cooler, but also because I don’t want to be burnt to a crisp or get a sunstroke. Singapore weather can become quite hot and humid. In the middle of this park is a McDonald’s. At the edges of the park are other restaurants. There you can get a decent dinner or grab a pint of beer. A lot of people go to this park to commune with nature, stroll about with family, play frisbee with friends, have a picnic with loved ones, or just about anything you’d want to do at a park. Quite a lovely place.
