Mobile Photo Challenge: Your Choice and Flower Of The Day (3/27/2017)

When we were in Pattaya (on the east coast of the Gulf of Thailand), we took a long walk at the resort area at night. Looking down from the sky walk, we saw people were enjoying a line of varieties of international food and bars there.

This is one of the two times that I tried to use iPhone to capture night lights, and I was really pleased with the results.

The fourth week of Sally D’s Mobile Photo Challenge is challenger’s choice. It’s always a treat to view through sally’s lens and read through her pens. This is how Sally describes her photo this week ” The radiance of the reddish-purple is the perfect hue to fuse my daily awareness with the here and now (and not just words but reality). Now I’m ready for a morning of foraging and forest bathing–bathing that soothes the spirit and soul with the ambience of nature.”


Cee’s Flower of the day (March 27, 2017)

Clematis is a genus of about 300 species. The wild Clematis species native to China made their way into Japanese gardens by the 17th century. Japanese garden selections were the first exotic clematises to reach European gardens, in the 18th century.

Cee posts flower of the day every single day, beautiful and inspiring, so much to learn from her. Check out Cee’s Showcase.

Thank you for visiting! Have a great week. 🙂

Thursday Travel: Bangkok at night

Bangkok at night looks fabulous when they light up their majestic palace, bridge, temples, and building along the river.

Photos were taken with high ISO. It was pretty challenging to take sharp pictures on a boat especially when motor was running. The captain was kind enough to stop here and there to let us take some photos. Out of two dozens of clicks, only 4, 5 were presentable. 🙂

Happy Thursday!

Spring Is Like A Perhaps Hand…


spring is like a perhaps hand (which comes carefully out of nowhere) …

changing everything carefully

spring is like a perhaps hand in a window

…moving a perhaps fraction of flower here

placing an inch of air there and

without breaking anything.

Click to read the entire poem of Spring is like a perhaps hand by E. E. Cummings (18941962)


Edward Estlin Cummings is known for his radical experimentation with form, punctuation, spelling, and syntax; he abandoned traditional techniques and structures to create a new, highly idiosyncratic means of poetic expression.

Above is a giant water fountain of a hotel. To maintain the ambience of the hotel, which was a brewhouse decades ago, they utilize rusty metal to decorate inside and outside of the hotel.

Those Were The Days

We thought they’d never end…

WPC: Atop

The title of this post came to my mind when I was admiring this lovely display in a store. Later, I found out through Google that a song was called “those were the days” 🙂

Thank you for visiting!
