I seldom reblog other’s post. But I have no hesitation at all to reblog this hoping my readers will pray and help our brothers and sisters in Nepal!

First of all thank you everyone who contacted me with concern about my loved ones in Nepal. My and AS immediate families are safe but there thousands out there who need our help.

I am sure most of you are aware that Nepal has been hit by 7.9 magnitude earthquake on April 25, 2015 and there is widespread devastation across the country. The death toll, approaching 2,000, continues to rise as search and rescue efforts are underway in Kathmandu and across the country. People are still trapped under collapsed buildings in Kathmandu, and there is no way to accurately guess how many are in need throughout the other cities and thousands of villages at this time.

Weekly Photo Challenges: Motion + Blur + Afloat

< A series of 5 Photos >

The recent and current themes of the Daily Press Weekly Photo Challenges are:

Motion, Blur and Afloat I am trying to combine these into just one series of pictures.DSCF0683

These pictures were all taken a fortnight ago  in the show The House of the Dancing Water in Macau.DSCF0684

Some of you may have seen my past posts showing water jets coming up, a pavilion coming up from the water and dancers dancing around the pavilion, all in splendid colors.DSCF0685

This series of photos are less colorful; the main color theme is blue.DSCF0686

They all show the pavilion gradually lowered into the water and finally disappear from the surface.DSCF0687

Water come gushing up, acrobats diving down into the water.

The blur in the images suggests motion.

The acrobats/ dancers are afloat either in the air, dancing up and down or finally plunge into water.

What a sight!

Weekly Photo Challenge; Motion (Bird & Kapok 2)

Here is another photo which looks like a Chinese painting.

I must admit the motion of the small bird is overshadowed by the stationary Kapok flowers.005 (3)

But together they look so beautiful.

Again, the picture was taken by Chung Kwok Fan to which credit is due.

Please enjoy 🙂

They were captured while in flight.003 (3)

Pictures taken by calligraphy classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.

Please enjoy 🙂

Weekly Photo Challenge: Motion

The DP Challenge this week is Motion.

Here is a picture with movement of sorts.

Three towers suddenly rose from underwater.

Then dancers climbed up to the very top.

Some jumped down to the water, others somersaulted, some swinged from one tower to the other.DSCF0647

There are so many movements that it was difficult to concentrate just on a few.

This is one of the views in the House Of Dancing Water show in Macau.
