This week’s DP photo challenge is Rare.
The picture was taken in a temple in Macau.
I have seen incense and oranges being offered in temple; but never have I seen the offerings placed on a wooden dragon boat like altar.
Isn’t this rare?
The photo was taken at the Fortress Hill of Macau.
You may wonder what the first image is; I have flipped the image so that the reflection is on top.
I like the very clear details of the reflection.
The theme for this week’s DP photo challenge is Dance.
This photo is an exception; it was taken in Macau, in the House of Dancing Water performance.
The multi-colored water jets were coming up and the dancers were dancing as they were in the rain.
I have set my shutter speed slow so that the photo gives a sense of motion for the jets and the dancers.
Here on earth, nothing can really defy gravity.
A jellfish can be immersed in water and supported by buoyancy as to appear weightless.
Some kung fu masters are said to be able to lift themselves up from the floor using Qikung – I still have to see them before my very eyes.
Here are some acrobats who seem to be able to soar above the water jets but in fact they are tied by wires.
The picture was taken in a performance in Macau.
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!
