Waterfalls ( Big vs Small)

retireediary

Here are two photos , both of which show waterfalls.

One was taken at the Niagara fall, the water was crashing down in all its mighty.1275803_1384422941789507_1141519837_o

A boat full of visitors was edging towards the waterfall while a rainbow appears to the left. The picture was taken by my classmate KC Ching.DSCF2943A

The second picture was taken by me at the Nine Dragons Group of Waterfalls in Yunnan, China.

The pictures are in dialogue, speaking to each other – with a similar theme but at a different scale.

Instead of a motorized boat, the second picture shows a small sampan being maneuvered near to misty waterfall.

Please enjoy 🙂

Mom – The Last Night with You

I clearly remember all the details of spending that last night with you in the hospital.

I watched you suffered

as you moaned in pain.

I hold your hand endlessly, trying to ease your pain.

I asked for medical attention

but they did not come up with anything effective.

All I could do was to sit close by, praying for you.

In the morning, you went away and we have to part.

God finally eased your pain

but broke my heart.

 

Jiuzhaigou – Before and After the Recent Earthquake

It takes millions of years to create the picturesque environment of the beautiful lakes in Jiuzhaigou, China.

The placid and serene lakes there are known for their mirror like reflection. The water is so clear that you can see the bottom of the lakes.

Water with calcium in it flows through the area creating bund like structures and series of terraces.

The water is so blue as it has no living plants in there; trees fallen over in the lake are progressively calcified.

Now, everything is destroyed.

The waterfalls are gone, the bunds disappeared.

Perhaps, the area will never recover . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

The last two photos are from the news agencies to which credit is due.
