This week’s photo challenge is Now.
Clocks (and watches) always remind us of Now – the present moment. Of course, it is related to the concept of time or even to relativity.
While travelling in the Latvia, I stumbled across this clock tower. The face of the clock is interesting , so were the details around the edges.
I have to take this picture at an angle as the clock tower was quite tall. By doing so, I compressed the clock’s image in the vertical direction. Thinking about it, it is not the clock face that I want to compress, it is time that I want to compress and if possible, save time into a bottle as the Singer Jim Croce suggested in his Time in a Bottle lyrics.
On the subject of time, I am a big fan of Albert Einstein. One quotation from him is “The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” For instance, I didn’t hit you with eight blog posts at the same time. You only received one post in the last eight days, one post at a time.
Einstein also indicated that time is only an illusion. The fact that one of his best friends died first didn’t matter him that much; they will soon meet.
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.
<This post contains 6 photos>
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.
