Poems, Photos, and More…

MM sunlight

To distill that gold into that glass….
How softly would the hours pass.

It was almost a year ago, when Dr. Hb saw the photo that I posted, he responded with this beautiful poem.


#8 Dance with love http://wp.me/pSlDL-cYn

In a flash, we met

Our lives start to intertwine

We dance into love

~ Written by Nato (Michelle) Chasing Life and Finding Dreams

Nato gave me the privilege of  using her beautiful poem. In March, I made the “Dance Into Love” post with this dancing Egrets photo.



It was a bright noon day

The ocean smoothed to blue

Reflecting azure hue

The sky mirrored the bay

And on the sparkling shore

I stood and said no more.

~ Dr. Hb (hbhatnagar)

In June, I made a post using the “I stood and said no more” poem written by Dr. Hb.

This Beautiful poem makes an ordinary photo meaningful.


I had a hard time to remove a line of this concrete wall showing on the photo I took, so I posted it as it was. Helen (HHC Blog) made an effort to copy the photo and erase the line and emailed back to me. She then said, “I enjoy seeing other people’s photos like I enjoy seeing good paintings in museum….”.

You rescued one of my favorite photos. Thank you so much, Helen.

It always is fun to share your own photos and stories, but it’s inspiring and invigorating when you can interact and interconnect with talented photographers, poets, and blog friends. Thanks to, Helen, Dr. Hb, and Nato!🙂

I will be taking a break, will visit you whenever I can. Hope to bring back a new set of travel photos in September.🙂

Capturing The Moment

Capturing a moment in nature like this one doesn’t always guarantee a great photography, but the joy is immense.

Watching bird in flight is fun.🙂

Today’s quote:

“I’m not a celebrity. I’m just Simone Biles, but it’s amazing to be recognized for all of this success for myself and for team USA,” she said. “I’m not the next Usain Bolt or Michael Phelps, I’m the first Simone Biles.”

Congratulations, Final Five!!!

In after times, when…


While we are living in our native land, we fancy that these streets are indifferent to us,

that these windows, these roofs, and these doors are nothing to us,


that these walls are strangers to us,

that these trees are no more other trees,

that these houses which we never enter are useless to us, that this pavement on which we walk is nothing but stone.


In after times, when we are there no longer, we find that those streets are very dear,

that we miss those roofs, those windows, and those doors,

that those walls are necessary to us,

that those trees are our well-beloved,


that those houses which we never entered we entered every day

and that we have left something of our affection, our life, and our heart in those streets.

~ Victor Hugo, Les Misérables

Cee’s Which Way: Golden Gate Bridge

0W5A5364-Edit-Edit-which way

The bridge is 8,981 feet long (1.7 miles) and contains about 88,000 tons of steel. The towers stand 726 feet above the water and 500 feet above street level. They weigh 44,000 tons each and are 4,200 feet apart from each other.


At noon on May 28, FDR pressed a telegraph key in the White House that announced the bridge’s opening to the entire world.

Opening day was “Pedestrian Day,” and 15,000 people an hour went through the turnstiles, each paying 25 cents to cross; some traversed the bridge on stilts and roller skates or on unicycles. Vendors set up along the roadway sold an estimated 50,000 hot dogs. Read more facts about the Golden Gate Bridge.

Though it was not our first time driving through the bridge, it was my first time capturing the moments through the car window.🙂

Take a look of Laura Macky‘s breathtaking photos of the Golden Gate Bridge!

A Foggy Morning

There is nothing so powerful, nothing less violent.

There is nothing so quick, nothing more patient.
