Stampede

In the dark, the earth began to shake. As I saw grains of sand vibrating inches from the ground, my heart sank. The end was near. "Ahhhh, STAMPEDE of the FOSSILS!"

Who said museums are boring?

museum is not boring for me too but the info downloaded in our brain can be a liiiiitle bit overwhelming at times.... have you been to egypt museum? 1 section need 1 day if you want to thoroughly listen and see all.

MKL,
I assume you mean the tone in the picture is that it? If so, it is a HDR effect (High Dynamic Range effec).

Willie,
hahaha! Surprised!

Reanaclaire,
Now that you mentioned it, they sure look roasted :).

Manglish,
I don't mind big museum but this one is quite small.

Lily Riani,
Oh! You've been to Egyptian museum? I bet it would be interesting!

ShingoT,
LOL! So funny! Tell her that they sell "entrance fee".

Uli,
You're absolutely right. Every museum is unique.

They allow you to photograph in a museum?

A menacing T-Rex...minus the flesh! :)

Ai Shiang said...

Unseen Rajasthan,
Glad you like it! :o)

Rafael,
No entrance fee? It's A$12 per person now. I paid A$6 that day because it was on special. The museum is under renovation so much to see.

Mei Teng,
Haha! Indeed without the flesh, most of them. They do have "stuffed animals" too :o). Yes, photography is allowed. I wonder if museums in other countries allow photography too or not?

Seldom visit Museum in overseas maybe due to time constraint, probably would be "running horse see flowers".

It's been awhile since I last been to a Muzium. :p

Horsoon said...

I like the way you describe the museum!

BTW, when was the last time you visited the museum in KL? But not to worry, it didn't change much since 30 years ago! Perhaps that's the way they define MUZIUM?

Cool shot, Ai Shiang. Looks almost like a copper sculpture.

I remember being at our National Museum some years back and couldn't go any further than the first hall. The place had this mushy nauseating smell in the air that I had to make a hasty exit. I'd prefer to visit art museums.

Shingo, LOL on your comment. Cute!

fufu said...
