What the ancients did before TV. This cromlech (Callanish I) in Callanais on the west coast of Lewis in the Outer Hebrides, dates from around 3000 BC and is the largest of a number of stone circles that dominate the surrounding landscape.
Local legend has it that when the giants living on the island refused to convert to Christianity, they were turned to stone by St Kieran.
Callanish I is an eerie site. The only thing spoiling it are the twenty-seven other people weaving in and out of the pillars. Everyone is searching for the best place to point their camera, each waiting for that precise moment when every visitor is hidden behind one of the giant rocks, allowing them to take a photo of the mysterious stone circle…with nobody in it.
I very quickly got tired of waiting for the other visitors to leave me and my stones alone and wandered off in the direction of the other smaller ones.

Singapore, like Kuala Lumpur and Hong Kong, is a likely stopover when you fly far. The city is a tiny urbanized hub but it's very favorable if you know some high-spirited locals. I was lucky to hook up with king kimbo (@hakimbo), who showed me around. He took my lame limbs to the Gardens by the Bay, an amazing place which was visually striking. I was hugging some artificial trees there when I found a baby—a very big baby.

Before Technicolor came into the picture, filmmakers were already hand-painting their negatives. A new book by Amsterdam University Press reveals this penchant for full-spectrum fantasy in the form of 300 stills.
