First of all: thanks for following me and checking in on a regular basis. This is great and so much fun, particularly, as I am still a fledgling in the blogosphere with just a month of daily chirps and observations in words, sights and sounds.
It’s been fun to check out your creative and inspiring blogs. I am hooked. Plus, I am learning.
When I posted Remember when the birds had the flu? this morning, I have realized that the half-life period of a post is, indeed, incredibly short. I mean, this is only my 41st post and even I can hardly remember what I posted a few weeks back.
In a nutshell
Let’s face it, as soon as contents are moved into the archives they become invisible as there is simply too much interesting incoming stuff out there.
So here’s the deal: I am going to post The Canary’s Monthly Round-Up for those of you who don’t follow me regularly, including the most popular posts from the past month. Given that June was the birth month of this blog, popularity is probably somewhat of a misnomer;)
What you might have missed in June
I started out this little blog project of mine with a few Coney Island Sights from April this year on one of the first warm days in New York, and Not a pretty sight at Bangkok’s Siam Square. Have you ever heard about shark-finning? That’s what the latter is about.
If you are interested in portrait/people photography, have a look at Random shots of people – Bangkok and let me know if you like them. I have only recently developed an interest in taking photographs and your opinion is highly appreciated. You might also enjoy a short clip on my Wild rickshaw ride thru the Big Mango – I am telling you, these Thai rickshaw guys are serious racing drivers.
Do you love Street Art as much as I do? Well, if so, check out my Street Art pictures here, here, here and here. New York City fans will like Off the High Line – before sunset at Manhattan’s lower west side – I find the area to be an ideal hunting ground for interesting shots. There are more New York related photographs in Concrete & Glass, Steel & Iron, Light & Shadow and Scenes of NYC life (one of my personal favourites!).
For those of you who can see the interesting (and even pretty) in the slightly darker as well, there is: Hello drabness – the NYC without the glitter.
Observations in words
But, hey, this is not exclusively a photo blog, the Canary observes in writing as well. Here are a few written observations, published in June:
- Character assassination or what’s behind unexpected emissions of venom
- A quick word on ‘Hannah Arendt’
- Egypt’s Jon Stewart
- The spoon situation
- 17 years of DOMA are enough
- Faster than its shadow
And there are sounds…
To be honest, I have so far only shared a couple of songs that I personally like a lot: Born in Xixax and Bonnie and Clyde. But there will be many more sounds to come (and not only in the form of music!). So stay tuned!
