A couple of years ago, I used to post a series known as The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft.
The dog’s name is Dor Dor; but unfortunately he was drowned when he took for a swim and could not get back onto the raft.
Here is a picture showing Dor Dor at sleep ( or is he just pretending to sleep?)
He has got a toy besides him.
Hope he is enjoying his sleep in Heaven.
<This posts contains 4 photos>. In our trip to South Korea, we did see a lot of fall foliage which are yellow or even golden in color. Everywhere there are lots of Gingko and other trees which gave an impression of a Golden Autumn. They remind me of the following poem written by a Chinese scholar and translated into English: I like spring, but it is too young. I like summer, but it is too proud. So I like best of all autumn, because its leaves are a little yellow, its tones mellower, its colors richer, and it is tinged a little with sorrow. Its golden richness speaks not of the innocence of spring, nor of the power of summer, but of the mellowness and kindly wisdom of approaching age. It knows the limitations of life and is content. Lin Yutang I like Autumn and share the sentiment that – it knows the limitations of life and is content! On a similar note, Yoko Ono did quote : Spring passes and one remembers one’s innocence. Summer passes and one remembers one’s exuberance. Autumn passes and one remembers one’s reverence. Winter passes and one remembers one’s perseverance.
Lately, there are too many things bothering me, those who have been reading my posts may already knew some of them.
I need some positive energy to get back into blogging, but before that I can only retrieve some photos and prepare some quick posts.
The images we got from Angkor Wat are just amazing. Given that many of the structures were built from stone blocks and stacked together, some of the resulting structures can be quite angular too. Here is an example.
I have been showing pairs of photo for places taken at night and in the day.
These include photos of Hong Kong, Seoul etc.
There is a lot of contrast between these photo pairs.
Here, the night picture of the picturesque city was taken by my university classmate YM Chan,
while the day photo was taken by me.
As you can see in both pictures, there is a pagoda on the left bank , a river in the middle and traditional houses built on the right bank.
In fact, the place suffered a lot of damage during the Summer flooding this year.
Autumn is still here.
Hope that Winter is coming late this year.
Understand this part of the world is affected by El Ninos and therefore Winter could be mild, with the exception of a few really cold days but it will be rainy too.
So, celebrate Autumn as it is retreating and hope that Winter will be short.
The picture was taken at Hunglouzhi (Temple) in Beijing two years ago.
This week’s theme for WPC challenge is Angular.
The picture was taken at the Feng Huang City in China.
The roofs of domestic buildings show a lot of angularity.
Please enjoy 🙂

This will be my best collection of clouds and mountains photos in China.
All these photos have been posted before but I am putting them together.
The Huangshan and clouds mountains are provided by my calligraphy classmate Mr. Chung Kok Fan..
Whereas the photos of Zhanzhejia are provided by my university classmate Mr. YM Chan.
They are great photographers and timing was on their side.
This collection is stunning and I expect that readers will be pleased.
This weeks’ WPC Challenge of the Daily Post is Angular.
This photo was taken in the Baltic, possibly in the city of Riga.
It is angular not matter how you look at it – angular roofs and window apexes.
I like the color and composition too.
This is the last photo from my classmate YM Chan on Zhanzhejia.
Of the photos I showed for this beautiful place, this is the best.
The clouds just seem floating from underneath you – so surreal!
Please enjoy 🙂
I just can’t stand fishing under the sun!
However, many anglers do enjoy fishing even when the temperatures are high and the sun was burning.
Here is a picture showing the anglers fishing in Hong Kong. Most of them have put their caps on; those who do not have a cap do have an umbrella.
In the background is the Victoria Harbor and some of the high rises.
From the picture, you can feel the heat coming out.
This is yet another picture from my angler friend CP Chan, to whom credit is due.
