This week’s Daily Press WPC Challenge is Fresh.
I know some people eat fish eyes.
However, I have never seen them being sold on markets.
Here is a photo taken in a fish market in Okinawa.
The fish eyes on sale are fresh; not only these but there are octopuses and other sea food too!

I am trying to put three unrelated photos together, this is an assortment of walls.
The first one was taken in a private property in Okinawa, Japan. I must admit my initial focus was on the red flowers. My attention was subsequently captured by the stone walls which when put together with the plants and flowers seem to make a good picture.
The second photo was taken in a holiday resort in Langkawi, Malaysia. I was impressed by the architecture of the resort building. The slightly sloping stone walls add a lot to the elegance of the building.
The last one was taken in Chongqing, China. The wall was entirely covered by a mural depicting some history in the past. Apart from a door opening on the right hand bottom corner, it is somewhat difficult to understand it is a building.
Please enjoy :-)

In my previous post, I have shown cliffs as walls.
In this post, I will be showing some trees as walls.
The first picture was taken in my trip to Tateyama Kurobe. In front of me was a forest of bamboos – which to me look like a natural wall.
The second photo was taken by my sister-in-law during their drive on Highway 12, USA. These are beautiful aspens.
I took the third photo locally in Luk Keng, Hong Kong, these are mangroves which were infested with some sort of disease. They seem to be withering.
The last picture was taken not too far from where I live. I captured these trees while doing my daily hike in Tai Po, Hong Kong.
Please enjoy :-)

I like comparing and contrasting between pictures.
Here are two pictures taken at Sapporo, Hokkaido in Japan.
Both were taken by the waterway and have similar backgrounds.
The Winter scene was taken by my classmate YM Chan.
Whereas, the Summer one was taken by me.
I dislike touring around during Winters, so have never been to Sapporo when it was snowing.
However, I must admit that the Winter one is more interesting and moody!
This tall tree is a famous “named” tree by the roadside in Hokkaido in Japan.
This is another example of the Rule of Thirds where the tree is located on the left third of the picture.
Today is the first day of the Chinese New Year.
I wish everybody a happy and prosperous New Year!
My special thanks go to those who have supported my mum and me during the difficult times December last year.
May the peach blossoms bring you good health and good tidings!
4 February is Li Chun – the start of the season of Spring in the Chinese Lunar calendar.
A lot of people might not know that, actually our Lunar New Year starts on Li Chun Day or Lunar New Year will only be considered as Officially Arrived after Li Chun Day.
Li Chun Day is a day to mark the start of a New Lunar Year and also, to mark the Arrival of the Spring Season.
Usually after Li Chun Day, most of the plants will start to grow again, snowing will slowly cease and accumulated ice will start to melt etc.
One sign of Spring is the blossoming of flowers. Here are some peach blossoms seen at night. Night is about to phase out and turn into day. What a wonderful sight! PS Picture taken by my classmate YM Chan in Japan.
