The Dog that Lives on the Fishing Raft

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.2735597662_c5553e375f_z

Hope he is enjoying his sleep in Heaven.

Travel Theme: Golden

<This posts contains 4 photos>.DSCF3335 In our trip to South Korea, we did see a lot of fall foliage which are yellow or even golden in color.DSCF3334 Everywhere there are lots of Gingko and other trees which gave an impression of a Golden Autumn.DSCF3333 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 YutangDSCF3332 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.

Images from Angkor Wat

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.DSC_0165 Here is an example.

Fenghuang City ( Night & Day)

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.1510399_968931953123945_8486132936364086359_n

Here, the night picture of the picturesque city was taken by my university classmate YM Chan,

while the day photo was taken by me.DSC_0036A

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.

 

Impressions of Autumn (Beijing)

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.DSCF2555A

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.
