Waterfalls in Iceland
Waterfalls are a favorite theme in my blog.
No two waterfalls are identical.
Even with the same waterfall, it will look different with the time of the year, or even with the time of the day.
However, they have the same mesmerizing effects.
This is a waterfall in Iceland during Summer.

Sapporo : Winter and Summer
< 2 Photos>
I like comparing and contrasting between pictures.
Here are two pictures taken at Sapporo, Hokkaido in Japan.
Both were taken by the waterway and have similar backgrounds.
The Winter scene was taken by my classmate YM Chan.
Whereas, the Summer one was taken by me.
I dislike touring around during Winters, so have never been to Sapporo when it was snowing.
However, I must admit that the Winter one is more interesting and moody!
The Summer of 1985 at Hampstead Heath, London
I fondly remember the Summer of 1985 when I lived in London. Those were the Summers when global warming hasn’t set in, when the sky was blue and without a cloud. When the grass was green and the air was crispy clean.
We had a long and warm Summer that year and the Brits called it an Indian Summer.
One Sunday, I found myself in a park in north London – Hampstead Heath. That was an ideal Summer day I had been longing for – blue sky that could intoxicate me, well kept green lawn, white heritage building (Kenwood House) in the background, people lying on the grass enjoying the sunshine and children playing as if the whole world belonged to them.
On seeing this picture ( original slide now digitized) taken that year, my only thought is – take me back, take me back to the parks of London, take me back to 1985 when everything seemed so nice, slow and mellow. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
