Monopod is the ideal digital compact camera photographer solution for traveller

Ever wonder how did some people manage to take a photo of themselves? Well, usually we  have a couple of choices out there.

  1. Extend our hand as far as possible to take photo with half of the face occupying the photo.

  2. Ask a stranger to actually help us to take a good photo of ourselves and trust the stranger's photography skill.

  3. Mount the camera on a tripod, set the camera shot on a timer and make a quick dash into the picture.

Rosa, Rose (Family of Rosaceae)

Rose, the modern symbolization of “Love” and that is what most women think of or at least regard it as an appreciation of her. Well. In general, rose is not just meant for that. Rose can be tea and other edible form. Personally, I do not know who actually came up with the idea to market the rose idea to the women as a symbol of “Love”. Maybe, it is Mr Valentino. At least, I believe that in his era, rose should be bountiful due to its edibility. Rose might just be another cheap flower until now, just like diamond is now.
