Autumn/Fall

When I think about Autumn/Fall, I think about the changing color of leaves…  In Hong Kong, we don’t have much to see given that our weather is still very warm in November.  However, in the northern countries like Japan and Korea, we find beautiful red leaves…

This picture was taken years ago in South Korea… and more photos are found in the blog I wrote about that trip.  Well, it’s written in Chinese, but I’m sure you like the photos!

Light…

This photo was taken on July 19 earlier this year, the seventh day after the death of Mr. Liu Xiaobo, the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner.   He won the Nobel Peace Prize for his long and non-violent struggle for fundamental human rights in China.  He was the first Chinese citizen to be awarded a Nobel Prize of any kind while residing in China.

This candle light symbolized Mr. Liu’s continuous struggle in human rights and it will never dim even he left us…  People will continue to fight for freedom and hope for the better future…

Lake

I visited Xinjiang last two weeks and passed by many beautiful lakes and met wonderful people there…

Aren’t they pretty?

Journey

I was in Taiwan two weeks ago…  We went up to Alishan trying to take some photos of the clouds.  Unfortunately, the weather was not too good.  We then went shopping near one of the old railway stations.

I went into the museum next to the old rail and I found the train that used to run on this route.

This looked familiar and I remember I took a picture with this type of train last time when I visited Alishan in 1971.

Time flies…  What a memory!  I’m older and hopefully wiser.  But this type of train is now displaying in the museum.  It no longer brings people from one place to other. But it brings us history and a lot of memory…

Well, to me, life is just a journey that everyone of us goes thru! Isn’t it?

Hummingbird

I met this pretty bird last May in San Jorge Eco-lodge in Tandayapa, Ecuador, first time in my life…

Thanks Luis Alcivar for teaching me how to shoot them.  What a memory!

Frame

I was in Taichung last week…  We passed by a very famous shop.  It’s used to be the Taichung Health Centre in the past.  But now it’s re-designed into a shopping centre and restaurant.  However, it kept the original frame outside to let people remember it’s past and it’s original design.

Black

“Black” makes me think about the ink of Chinese painting and calligraphy that I love…

These are two that I did years ago.  Hope you like them!

Electronic

Do you still remember this Sony MD Walkman?  It’s life span was very short and it was replaced by Apple iPod…:(

Technology drives us crazy and we just cannot stop moving forward, can we?

 

 

Gold

This is a drawing I did almost a quarter of a century ago when I studied in Ontario College of Art in Toronto…  Time flies, doesn’t it?

Duck

This was a photo I took in one of my earlier photography class…  This yellow duck reminds me the toy I used to play in my childhood.

Do you folks have the same type of memory?
