This week’s photo challenge is Look Up.
In terms of architecture, they seem to stem from the Baroque style.
These are two examples of the building facade and sculptures I like.
Hope you also enjoy looking at them.
Here are two photos of a naked man on the roof top.
The South China Morning Posts reported that :
The 31 life-sized sculptures by UK artist Antony Gormley, part of the public art installation Event Horizon, confused some passers-by who thought they were witnessing someone about to jump off a building – the most common way of committing suicide in Hong Kong.

This week’s Photo Challenge is Endurance.
Looking up the dictionary, endurance means:
: the ability to do something difficult for a long time
: the ability to deal with pain or suffering that continues for a long time
I am afraid of submitting an entry for this week’s challenge: Humanity, as I don’t think I actually know its meaning.
Looking up the Wikipedia, Humanity means:
The virtue, humanity, is a set of strengths focused on “tending and befriending others.” The three strengths associated with humanity are love, kindness, and social intelligence. Humanity differs from justice in that there is a level of altruism towards individuals included in humanity more so than the fairness found in justice. That is, humanity, and the acts of love, altruism, and social intelligence are typically person to person strengths while fairness is generally expanded to all.
I am at a lost to reconcile that these represent humanity.
I know what this is not about – humanity is not just a bunch of people (as in my picture on Ju Ming’s sculpture).
The world always seem to be in a bit of chaos:
Around 250 girls in a boarding school in Nigeria were kidnapped and nowhere to be found!
The Malaysian airline MH370 seems to have been hijacked with over 200 people on board and no where to be found.
A ferry capsized in seas of Korea, killing over 250 people including many students.
Mine exploded and killing as many in Turkey.
Two of the girls, in particular, are happily taking to each other.
The sculptures of Ju Ming have again shown this quite vividly.
Ju Ming has reminded us of the lighter and happy side of the world we live in. Let’s smile and enjoy 🙂
