I haven’t had a lot of time and enthusiasm for updating the blog since I got back from Hong Kong, but thank goodness for Travel Photo Thursday keeping me engaged at least once a week!
Still reaching into the riches of photos from that Hong Kong trip, these photos were taken using my HTC Desire Z smartphone camera. I normally don’t really like the photo filter apps that come with smartphones, but when I saw the pandas I knew that sepia was the way to go. I used ActionSnap, a little Android App to take this shot.
Ocean Park has a number of Pandas on display in two different exhibits in the park. The enclosures are a little more zoo-like than I’d prefer but I believe that Pandas, more than most other animals, are generally pretty happy as long as they’re fed.
Be sure to check out Travel Photo Thursday, hosted by Budget Traveler’s Sandbox for more great travel photos shared by other bloggers.
One more bonus pic below.
Great choice using sepia for the pandas, it really makes them stand out.
I love the sepia tone and the way you have four photos together is really cool too! I can’t believe these pictures came from a smartphone!
I wouldn’t have thought of sepia for the pandas, but you got it right — great shots. Would love to see the pandas. Beautiful creatures.
Great shots! I agree, the sepia really works.
Thanks for posting to Travel Photo Thursday!
Yes, the sepia has worked very well, indeed. Would love to visit HK again…
