Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

<This post contains 2 photos >

It was the Spring of 2013 that we went to see the rapeseed flowers of Luoping in China. We were blessed to be there at the right time.CIMG3279 There were just endless fields of yellow flowers. Without a doubt, the sight of these yellow flowers were just uplifting . . . .  we were full of  joy!DSCF3131A PS For those who are interested, please visit my previous posts on the subject.

Images of Angkor Wat (4)

I have shown many images of the Buddha, the ruined stone structures, the trees etc in Angkor Wat.

I actually missed out some of the buildings in the courtyard which are still intact and elegant.CSC_0334

The photo here is an interesting example of the architecture.

Please enjoy!

Images from Angkor Wat (3)

<This post contains 2 photos> Here are two images which show trees growing close to stone structures in Angkor Wat.DSC_0183 Some of the trees are tilted and inclined at a considerable angle.DSC_0184 Understand trees like these will be removed for fear that they may topple and affect the integrity of the stone structures.

<This post contains two photos>

I have never posted these two photos because I am not satisfied with their quality and composition.

Nevertheless, I think they are quite interesting.DSC_0190

The photos show the stone elephants in Angkor Wat.

It appears that they are trying to clean up the stone work, so part of it looks dark while the others is light color.DSC_0193

The other thing I am not too happy about the images is that the stone blocks when put together (re-assemble together after they were ruined?) have some discontinuity.

Hope you still like the photos!

Images from Angkor Wat

Lately, there are too many things bothering me, those who have been reading my posts may already knew some of them.
I need some positive energy to get back into blogging, but before that I can only retrieve some photos and prepare some quick posts.

The images we got from Angkor Wat are just amazing. Given that many of the structures were built from stone blocks and stacked together, some of the resulting structures can be quite angular too.DSC_0165 Here is an example.

Please enjoy!

Haunted Hill of Crosses

­

This must be one of the most Haunted Places of the World:DSC_0258

The Hill of Crosses  is a site of pilgrimage about 12 km north of the city of Šiauliai, in northern Lithuania. The precise origin of the practice of leaving crosses on the hill is uncertain, but it is believed that the first crosses were placed on the former Jurgaičiai or Domantai hill fort after the 1831 Uprising.Over the centuries, not only crosses, but giant crucifixes, carvings of Lithuanian patriots, statues of the Virgin Mary and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries have been brought here by Catholic pilgrims. The exact number of crosses is unknown, but estimates put it at about 55,000 in 1990 and 100,000 in 2006.

To be honest, I didn’t feel very pleasant when I walked over the hill from one end to the other and back.

Nevertheless, I am happy to share this image which maybe the best picture  took over there.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle ( Lone Fisherman at Sea)

The Old Man and the Sea?

Not sure, but this is a picture taken by my classmate (YM Chan) of a fisherman in traditional hat fishing on a sampan.10497386_896122327071575_3328287306884987397_o

The sea was sparkling – there were twinklings reflected from the sea.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone But Not Forgotten

 

The invasion of the “barbarians” is gone.

The soldiers and generals that once protected the residents from the invasion are gone too.DSCF2664

For thousands of years, the Great Wall stands as a witness to past battles.

It stands there to remind the world of the past events which will never be forgotten.
