Old things always fascinate me. I still remember how I spent three and a half hours in the Warwick Castle in the UK and left with a wistful sense of anti-climax months ago; so was it when I left Shakespeare's houses and the Roman Bath after several hours of touring on separate days.
I have a penchant for historical heritage. Maybe there's why I still haven't switched to any DSLR…,well, yet. Knighthood is certainly one of the most marvellous relics of the past.
For reason of this passion, I have learned a few things about the castle. Here are two questions for you: 1) Do you know why the stairs leading up to the top of a tower in a castle were always built in a right-to-left spiral fashion? 2) Do you know what a wardrobe was used for in a castle?
For the same reason, I went to the movies for Alice in the Wonderland this morning; Not because the story was old, but the period costumes are interesting. The best part is Alice in full armour nearing the end of the movie.
I brought the ticket, a big pack of popcorn and a soda, happily seating myself and enjoying the movie like a five-year-old. Such literally colourful movie is the best way to educate photographers about colours in a totally submerged environment.Oh, Alice in the armour. Impressive!
