Haven’t used the filters in Lightroom for a while !
One thing I did during the Golden Week : install some LED lights in my daughter’s doll house, fully furnished with Playmobil she got for Christmas in France.
Very different from night time : no music and no ladies ;-)
Really nice city, me like !
Very nice hotel room, no ?
One of the best hotel I’ve stayed at. Surprisingly everything seems to be working fine although it opened only last week !
The W Hotel in Taipei is so very cool that the party starts right from the entrance lift that you have to ride to reach the lobby on the 10th floor ! One of the screen inside the lift shows the playlist of the music being played !
First morning in Taipei. I haven’t managed to take good enough photos of my room at the W hotel but as soon as I do, be prepared to be amazed :-)
Starting the descent towards Paris, 11 hours of a smooth ride after leaving Tokyo. A plethora of A380 photos coming soon… :-) I actually wanted to upload more photos but my iPad now refuses to connect to my CF card reader because of the USB power limitation iOS has recently introduced. Not to mention the ...
Since I had to open my desktop for some refurbishing (video card, SSD, memory, BR writer), I decided to take a few photos… which reminds me : looking forward to TRON :-)
One of my purchases from my trip to the US: a fan-less video card – ZONE GeForce GT 430 from ZOTAC – for a perfect balance of performance and features while maintaining silence during operation to let users focus on stunning visuals uninterrupted by fan noise !
Already bored right after boarding – no pun intended – I took a few photos of what would be my view for the next 15 hours or so on my way back to Tokyo… That Boeing 777-200 from Delta was either new or recently refurbished : large touch screens for in-flight entertainment without any remote ...
Beautiful sunset with Main Street Bridge over St. Johns River in Jacksonville, as seen from my hotel room (Hyatt Regency).
Pictured above, some infamous Sochu ;-)
Now, that’s what I would call a foreigner-friendly power plug !
mmm… maybe not ;-) and yes, that’s where we had lunch !
Plethora of sichuan food for ~2€ each!
Poor design for the quality label logo in China, at least from European viewpoint: difficult not to be reminded of the Schutzstaffel SS.
A lot more impressive in Mummy 3 to be honest ;-)
This time we decided to avoid riding the plane (too much of it on a yearly basis anyway) and give the train a try between Beijing and Xian: eleven hours ride, leaving Beijing at 21:30 and arriving in Xian at 8:30. Around 400 CNY each for a 4-berth soft sleeper cabin: not too expensive, quite ...
