Hideout…

We have terrible weather in Hong Kong, heavy rain and thunderstorm all day long…

Poor Milky has to hideout under the curtain!

Heron

I met different types of herons in Galapagos last May…  They are so different!

Gorilla

It has been raining for days in Hong Kong and finally the sun came out yesterday…

My gorilla was excited and he enjoyed the bright sun in our backyard!

Giraffe

The first typhoon this year hit Hong Kong yesterday…  It now moves north but we have heavy rain for the rest of the week!

The only way to catch a giraffe is this little one at home.  Hope you like it… 🙂Giraffe

Friend

What is a friend?  We might have hundreds friends in our Facebook connection or other social networking media.  However, I think a real friend is somebody who really understands you, cares about you and will be by you side when you need support.

I’ve seen Lynn Chadwick’s sculpture “Sitting Couple” in Hong Kong few days ago.  I was impressed by the way Lynn put the man and woman sitting together, though physically separated, yet the body language demonstrated the intimate relationship between the two.

They are friends…

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.

This photo was taken on the lake side last month…   This lake is 4441 meters above sea level, one of the three most famous holy lakes in Tibet.

Wet

We had a wet morning today.  But we found butterflies did enjoy water drops after the rain…

Tibet – the highland in China

Longing to visit Tibet for the past 20 years and I finally got a chance to be there in April…

My original target was only the Potala Palace in Lhasa given that it’s the most famous place in Tibet.  Surprisingly, I’ve found there are a lot of natural beauties around areas like Linzhi: the blossom of peach trees, the thousand years glacier, the snow mountains, the lakes, just to name a few.

The Jokhang Temple in Lhasa, the religious centre of Tibet is a must go for us to understand how Tibetan worship their gods!

Last but not the least, we visited the Potala Palace, the centre of power in Tibet…  There are too many things we can learn from this palace, it’s history, it’s art, it’s culture, it’s precious collections, it’s religious background, it’s architecture…

You can only be there to taste it… 🙂

 

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!
