Weekly Photo Challenge: Tiny ( Fishes )

The visit to the Okinawa aquarium was delightful.

Have been to many aquariums; this is one of the most interesting aquariums.dsc_0205

Apart from big tanks with panoramic views of the sharks, sting rays etc, there are also small tanks with the small fishes and corals.

This is a picture showing the small fishes and the colorful corals.

Please enjoy 🙂


Weekly Photo Challenge : Nostalgia ( Okinawa )

Every body has their own interpretation of Nostalgia.

Different cultures and brought up experience have influence on what nostalgia may mean.

With a such diverse readership, more than 30% from the States and the rest from many English and even non-English countries, I was at a lost as to what I can show to depict Nostalgia.dsc_0083

An old radio or a sewing machine are definitely common elements of nostalgia for many countries. I have posted them in my previous post.

The picture here is a collection of old objects in an old mansion in Okinawa, Japan.

The room has old tea pots, oil lamps, weaving machines, flour grinder etc.  We have something similar in our cultures but they may not look the same. But still, they seem nostalgic to me.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Optimistic ( Jesus Light )

I am not a preacher.

The illness of mom in the last year has made me all the more aware how helpless one can be. How weak and hopeless one can become.

I hope this weakness can bring me closer to God and I hope that mom can be physically healed.DSC_0267

While walking along the shoreline of Okinawa, I spotted light coming down from the sky (heaven?)

They look as if they are ” Jesus Light”.

They seem to be telling me that I should be optimistic or at least to take one day at a time ( my friend Equinoxio21 whom I met on this blog have iterated this to me).DSC_0281

Quoting the words of the Bible:

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” 

So, follow the light!

Clouds at Okinawa

Both Sides Now Lyrics – Joni Mitchell

Rows and flows of angel hair
And ice cream castles in the air
And feather canyons everywhere,
I’ve looked at clouds that way.12362677_1218296368187501_8497135584051579556_o

Do they look like angel hair?

I must admit that I am not able to take such a good photo.

The picture was taken by my classmate YM Chan who has received proper training on photography.

I am more like the child on the beach ( at Okinawa) looking at the sky in awe.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Creepy (Fish)

This week’s DP photo challenge is Creepy.

This was how I felt when I took this photo in the aquarium at Okinawa, Japan.DSC_0204

The stripes, the fragile fins, the eyes, the lack of motion of the fish altogether gave me a creepy feeling when the blue light in the aquarium shone through the Lion fish.
