Stadium Walk – mypictureday submission

Just for the fun of it, I took a walk along the section of Singapore’s Kallang River where the national stadium is located. I could have picked a better day, I suppose, as it started to rain pretty heavily. The relatively new National Stadium which is dome shaped and features a retractable roof is the reportedly the world’s largest dome structure. Unfortunately, the retractable roof’s reliability as well as the quality of the artificial turf has been less than desirable. The structure does look pretty cool though, I think.

 

 

In contrast to the National Stadium, is the much older Indoor Stadium, which is just next door. Instead of a rounded mound look, it sports an angular circus tent look and reminds me of the Millenium Falcon from Star Wars. Both stadiums are within the same complex called the “Sports Hub” which also has an indoor pool as well as a shopping mall. The Indoor Stadium is where a lot of the music concerts, MMA events and basketball games are played.

Call for entry: International Photo Contest with a €2,000 award

I received an email from Depositphotos.com, promoting online magazine, Bird in Flight’s photography contest which among other prizes, is awarding €2,000. I looked through the website and found that it has a €10 entry fee for a submission set of 5 to 12 images and the deadline for submitting is Sept. 9, 2018. The site looks legit and reports some big name sponsors but you should check it out for yourself on Bird in Flight’s Website.

I’m going to try to put together something for this contest but in the meantime, just for kicks, here’s a “Bird’s Eye View” image set.
