Banff National Park, Alberta – Landscape Photography

Posted September 9th, 2011 in Inspiration, Personal by Victor Tang

We recently took a visit to the Banff National Park in Alberta and i must say it’s well worth it. Banff National Park is a UNESCO world heritage site which offers unspoiled landscapes, astonishing beauty, and extensive mountain ranges.  There is also a great resort town filled with shops and restaurants surrounded in a gorgeous mountain setting. We had brunch at the Fairmount Banff Springs which is literally a castle in the rockies.  We also took a ride on the gondola reaching up to the mountain top. The first moment when my view was surrounded by the endless mountains i was overwhelmed by its beauty.   The view was so breathtaking, i was glad i brought my camera (i tend to always forget to bring my camera out).

If you are looking for a quiet and relaxing nature getaway, i highly recommend taking a visit to the Banff National Park in Alberta.  Totally inspired by the view, here are some photos!

OnBoard Drawing App for Blackberry Playbook

Posted August 1st, 2011 in Apps, Inspiration by Victor Tang

I’ll have to say that this is an awesome app for the Blackberry Playbook.  OnBoard is a drawing/painting app that has decent drawing tools and can be shared among your facebook friends.  The best thing about this app is that it’s a collaborative drawing app (meaning you will be sharing a gigantic canvas with everyone else with this app). Pan through the canvas to see what others have done or share your doodles with your friends.  This app is great for sketching ideas along with seeking out inspiration from other users. A lot of them may seem like nonsense, but if you take your time you might find some awesome drawings.

Check it out here at the Blackberry App World.
