50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic

Over the weekend, KB and I went to see the 50 Greatest Photographs of National Geographic exhibition at the ArtScience Museum. I love turning the pages of National Geographic magazines, so this visit was indeed a feast for my eyes.



A panel at the entrance shows the thumbnails of all the photo exhibits.

Since the invention of digital camera, photography has become a hobby of many people. This exhibition does not only showcase the 50 greatest photos, it educates about some basic principles of photography.

Before leaving, pen down a wish for our Mother Earth and hang it on this global model.
