The challenger’s theme for this week is “Containers“.
On my recent trip to Japan, one of the destinations was to visit the Okayama Waterway.
I was particularly interested in window shopping at this pottery shop which contains all sorts of containers, from vases, bowls to kettles and plates etc. They are all nicely displayed.
This is a photo taken at Cappadocia, in front of an earthen ware shop.
The last photo was taken in a restaurant in Turkey.
Mounted on the walls were some shelves which were full of glass containers.
Inside the containers were pickles and many types of preserved fruits and vegetables. This is the first time I have seen so many jars with colors!
A trip to Ephesus is a trip into the past with opportunity for viewing lots of monuments.
The library is an ancient Roman building with two storeys. It was built in honor of the Roman Senator Tiberius Julius Celsus Polemaeanus and completed in 135 AD by Celsus’ son. In fact, Celsus used his own money for building this library outside Rome.
The library was built to store 12,000 scrolls and to serve as a monumental tomb for Celsus
The name “Temple of Hadrian” is not really accurate: it is more a monument than a temple, and was dedicated not only to Hadrian but also Artemis and the people of Ephesus.
Beautiful pictures are developed from negatives in a dark room. So if you see darkness in your life be reassured that a beautiful picture is being prepared.
The beautiful negative above is based on an image of the beach, palms, sky, islands etc. taken in Langkawi.
The original is also depicted.
In my view, negatives can be as beautiful as originals.
