Welcome to My Sanctuary

If you are a dreamer, come in.
If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar,
A hope-er, a pray-er, a magic bean buyer...
If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire.
For we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
Come in!
Come in!

Picture Perfect: TWO

It was so exciting to visit Philadelphia Zoo a couple of years ago. My son asked if we could celebrate his birthday by coming to the zoo, and so we're there. Just when we just started to walk around, we saw one interesting and hilarious view. The view of two hippo behinds. The look of them were just too funny, my kids and I had to come up with a ridiculous conversation between the two hippos,"I think your butt is bigger than mine".

This is my photography entry for this week Picture Perfect, with the theme of TWO.

Picture Perfect: DISCOVERY

In an empty lot that looked abandoned, hundreds  of cornflowers grew in the end of spring last year. The fence that surrounding the lot was rusted and I saw two or three junk cars in the far side of the lot. One morning I went to the lot especially to see rows of light-blue, white, pink and purple cornflowers. When I snapped some pictures, a man greeted me and he turned out to be the lot attendant. He took interest of me and offered me to come inside the lot. He told me how he planted the seeds, in the hope to beautify the lot, and that there will be some morning glories in summer. The view before me was sublime. It certainly felt like I was in a meadow, not an empty lot with junk cars. When I took several pictures, suddenly I spotted a ladybug. Its black and red shell looked brilliant and contrast amongst the cornflowers. So I took some pictures of it too, when the ladybug jumped from one flower to another. The ladybug was my discovery that day.

This picture is my contribution for Picture Perfect: DISCOVERY.

Picture Perfect: Color Splash!

If you paint the colors of rainbow onto a big parachute, then some children gleefully playing with it, what would it create? It would create, FUN. This is what the picture is all about. Children laughed and played, some ran and hid, and one tried to catch. Under the parachute they scattered here and there between giggles and happy scream. Oh, what fun it was to play under the color splash!
