Souvenir Photography of Michael Hughes

When most people go to a landmark or tourist attraction, they take home a little souvenir to remind them of their trip. Then there's Michael Hughes. He loves to take pictures of the world's famous landmarks - perfectly blended with cheap souvenirs.

Born in Britain and now living in Germany, 56-year-old Michael Hughes is a freelance photographer. Hughes started this hobby back in 1998 and has accumulated a rich collection of over 100 fun images using this blending technique in 200 countries he visited.

"I noticed coffee cups from a shop near the Statue of Liberty had the statue printed on it, so I poured my drink on the floor, and positioned it in front of the statue. Since then, taking the pictures has developed into a hobby and a passion to the point where I have been taking trips recently just to photograph a souvenir next to its landmark".

Michael, who travels extensively with his job, said the hobby has progressed into a 'sport with its own rules': He arrives at the destination, visits the nearest souvenir and buys the cheapest souvenir. Michael then takes up to 50 photographs with a wide angle lens on a digital camera until he has the ornament positioned in exact proportion to the landmark.

CollectionStudio Review by (Hungary)

Collection Studio was reviewed by biggest Hungarian software portal - Here it is:

Aki szereti gyűjtögetni a filmeket, könyveket és ki tudja még, mi minden mást, annak igencsak jól jöhet a Collection Studio program, amellyel akárhány katalógust kezelhetünk.

Sokunknak a mai napig nem sikerült hátrahagyni az ősemberre jellemző gyűjtögető életmódot. Mindent elteszünk, megőrzünk, mert hát jó lesz az még valamire. Ez a megállapítás az apróbb kacatokra, könyvekre éppúgy igaz, mint az érmékre vagy éppen a számítógépes adatokra. Az utóbbiak esetében addig viszonylag egyszerű dolgunk van, amíg a számítógép merevlemezén foglalnak helyet, de amint CD/DVD-re kerülnek és a korongok felhalmozódnak, már korántsem olyan egyszerű a dolgunk, ha szeretnénk megtalálni valamit. Ilyen esetekben vesszük jó hasznát egy remek katalogizáló szoftvernek, amelynek a segítségével rendezhetjük sorainkat.

World Book Day

On this day, 23th April, all our book collectors celebrate World Book Day.

This yearly event on April 23 was organized in 1995 by UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) to promote reading, publishing and copyrights. The history of this day is very interesting: the date is anniversary of the birth and death of William Shakespeare, the death of Inca Garcilaso de la Vega and Josep Pla, the birth of Maurice Druon, Vladimir Nabokov and other world famous writers and scholars. Although 23 April is often stated as the anniversary of the deaths of both William Shakespeare and Miguel de Cervantes, but this is not strictly correct. Cervantes died on 23 April according the Gregorian calendar; however, at this time England still used the Julian calendar. Whilst Shakespeare died on 23 April by the Julian calendar in use in his own country at the time, actually he died ten days after Cervantes, because of the discrepancy between the two date systems. This correspondence of the two dates was a fortunate coincidence for UNESCO.
