Cee’s Fun Foto: Catching People Unaware


 Hi Helen, This one is for you. Hope you will always remember the good times you had with your sister.

Yes, the colored version of this photo was posted last year for another theme, that was before I met Helen through WP. I don’t take candid photo often, it’s just too difficult. But, Helen takes great candid photos. 


Helen is a writer and a photographer, and has a strong science background. I thought that was a rare combination. In one of her posts, Helen said that she told her mother that she wanted to write a book before she died. And, she published a YA novel “Jin-Ling’s Two Left”.

Though Helen has taken some serious photo lessons, she doesn’t just present “perfect” photos. She uses her photos to tell stories; they are always heartwarming, sensitive, and thoughtful. I recall that she captured a beautiful smile of a hard-working lady in a grocery store. Then, she made a hard copy and handed it to the lady.  Would you re-post this story for us, Helen?  

In her most recent post, Helen wrote a moving story with only 220 words, entitled What to Say.  She began the story saying “Many times in my life I felt disappointed at myself for keeping my mouth shut when I wanted and should say something… ” It ended with “From time to time, I dreamed that I did say something on that day.” Click HERE to view the beautiful lotus photo and read the story…

  1. Good morning, Amy. As soon as I saw the photo, tears filled my eyes… joyful tears. I am so happy for them because I know how they feel. Thank you, Amy, for such a warm and wonderful post! Having a friend like you is such a blessing! I will smile whole day today 😉


    • So glad you like it, and that brought you joyful tears. I know the feeling too, though I don’t have a sister, and no cousin sisters… I grew up with boys, and they all want to protect me. 🙂
      Thank you for your comment. I hope I said everything correctly and appropriately. You know, It’s challenging to write about a writer 🙂

  5. I laughed with the photo but smiled at the tribute–and I knew who you were talking about before I even saw the name. Our Helen is awesome, isn’t she? Beautiful post, fantastic photo. Absolutely lovely, everything.
