WPC: Rule of Thirds

********************************************************************************

I enjoy reading Mabel’s series of food. She didn’t just talk about food, but telling stories of why we enjoy certain food and how we eat; also blended with culture, stories, and her personal experience. Why we eat together at home…  is one of the her food series.

Mabel said, “I’m a person of Chinese ethnicity residing in Melbourne. I always find myself transitioning between adopting a persona favouring Chinese values that I’ve been brought up with and a persona that takes on the Australian/Western mindset.” Perhaps, it’s that mindset made her write a sensitive article, Why Are We Afraid Of Standing Up Against Racism?. She presented it calmly and graciously without mixing her own emotions (yes, she has had some unpleasant encounters). I applaud her.

It take audacity, sensibility, and insights to write a racism article like Mabel did. Mabel is at 20 ish years old. How a young writer manages to write great stories and sensitive issues is beyond me. 

Thank you so much for visiting!  🙂

  3. …and we see the heron again! He still doesn’t look too pleased, but a bit less grumpy in this one. It looks like he spotted something up ahead. Great capture again, Amy. You have a great eye and way documenting birds. Maybe it’s what you focus on?

    Thank you for the blurb about me. I am flattered, you introduced me so graciously 😀 Yes, you are absolutely right that I am 20-something ish…for now…and a few years more… 😀 Thank you for all your love ❤

    • I may focus on birds a little more than I did… I think it is because I have learned bit about birds. I’m willing to learn to photo birds is also because it’s very challenge. Most of the time I get bad shots (like this morning and last weekend), just have to keep trying. 🙂

      • You make photographing birds look easy. They always seem to pose for you, or put on a show for you. It’s good that you like birds and like taking photos of them. As for me, I’m just having fun with my camera 🙂

  4. Beautiful post, Amy! Your thirds is perfect by the way and this heron is just magical! Your work is becoming more and more amazing every time I see it. I think you are one very talented woman. Thank you, Amy, for showing us your Heart. I in turn think you need to go beyond WP. Let’s do it together, shall we? Love, Amy

  5. wonderful photo – and I like the effect and theme for the thirds…
    also, you wrote so eloquently of Mabel – and I have seen her comments to people here and there and she seems like she has a heart of gold – indeed young and oh so wise.
    also, wanted to say hope you have a great rest of Feb and see you in a few weeks amiga…
    Hugs

    • Thank you, my dear friend, Doda! So much to learn about, but I haven’t been able to apply to my photos. I do basic editing most of the time. Thank you for liking the heron. My first time see the bird. 🙂
