clear blue sky

We marvel at the scenic landscapes and the spectacular breathtaking formations that we see on this planet, but looking up there are also magnificent things that we could see and admire.

Yesterday while playing with my dog in my backyard, i looked up and was smitten by the clear blue sky. I was fascinated by the movement of the clouds looking so white and fluffy and how quickly they changed their shapes. And for that fleeting moment i was captivated.

The top part of the cloud on the left looks like a head of a tiger, or that of a dog. Can you see its fangs?

The right cloud resembles a head of a lion, hmm… maybe a dog (again?) wearing a hat with a feather and its mouth open…

Every living things on EARTH are interdependent on each other to survive. One single deed of protecting the environment no matter how simple or small it may seem would have a massive impact if done by a lot of people. This is our home. We are all responsible for keeping it clean, happy, healthy and a sustainable place to live in. And for as long as we do our share, we and the many generations to come will continue to enjoy the BEAUTY and the BOUNTY it has to offer.

weekly photo challenge: abstract

This week’s photo challenge is about taking a photo of something familiar and turn it into something else.

With a little photo editing this is how it looked like. Although it still looks like something familiar but it may or may not look like what it really is depending upon our own interpretation.

Abstract as a form of art refers to those that doesn’t have no trace of anything recognizable thus making the viewer interpret it in their own ways as to what it really means. It takes an imaginative mind to be able to translate something unreadable into something beautiful.

Love is good example of an abstract concept. It doesn’t have any physical existence but it exists in our thoughts. However, love exists if we believe it exists. Like a form of an abstract art, love could have a lot of interpretations and be differently understood.

Tiger loves to sleep with all paws up in the air. Couldn’t resist giving him belly rubs either. I love to pinch that fat belly.

The Chinese think Earth is associated with the qualities of patience, thoughtfulness, practicality, hard work and stability. The earth element is also nurturing and seeks to draw all things together with itself, in order to bring harmony, rootedness and stability. Other attributes of the earth element include ambition, stubbornness, responsibility and long-term planning. In pathology, the earth can represent selfishness and self-centeredness. (source: wiki)

weekly photo challenge: unique

As  most of you know, i’m really fond of taking photos of ceilings and all its adornments. I found this rather unique looking light fixture in a Chinese restaurant which is so cute and resembles an oreo.
