This is a boundary between the beautiful and the ordinary;
between the surreal and the real and
The picture was taken during Autumn in South Korea.
The boundary is an ancient wall.
No one, even the observatories, can predict the weather with certainty.
In this world, only Change is the constant.
There were clouds of change in the sky.
There were some dark clouds looming; at the same time, there are some warm yellow clouds.
Which way the wind is blowing?
Will we have sunny or rainy weather – that I just don’t know.
Those who read my previous post realize that I don’t like the many casinos in Macau.
Certainly, these casinos generate a lot of revenue and GDP for Macau which has a small population.
I dislike gambling very much and the other vices it supports.
Up on the hill, there is a line of old cannons protecting Macau from sea attacks. Now they are obsolete.
Here are a couple of pictures I took – with the cannon pointing towards one of the casinos.
The casino was specially designed to be like a lotus flower; the external shape of which is quite interesting.
The photos taken with the cannon pointing at the casino has a special meaning – they express my dislike of the casinos!
Macau has always been a place I can find relaxation.
The peaceful way of life has given away to a busy and materialistic one.
In my trip earlier this year to Macau, I tried to rediscover the quieter side of it.
Here are some pictures, one taken in the busy central area with a fountain.
The other shots show the back alleys – the other side of the city which are less visited by tourists.
The Castles of Bellinzona are a group of fortifications located around the town of Bellizona, the capital of the Swiss canton of Ticino. Situated on the Alpine foothills, the group is composed of fortified walls and three castles named Castelgrande, Montebello and Sasso Corbaro. Castelgrande is located on a rocky peak overlooking the valley, with a series of walls that protect the old city and connect to Montebello. Sasso Corbaro, the highest of the three castles, is located on an isolated rocky promontory south-east of the other two. The Castles of Bellinzona with their defensive walls have been an UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2000.
The walls seem quite well preserved.
I am glad that it has been awarded as a UNESCO site.
