A lone dragon stays aloft

…or this guy is on duty patrolling the coastline, perhaps.. This photo is not great because the angle that I caught him stayed at the edge of the cliff,  also caught the rock platform in straight line, and it made the his presence assimilated in background.  Oh well, I could not help it as thereContinue reading “A lone dragon stays aloft”

Relaxed Snapshot of

Bleu and Shiraz. I am in Japan since yesterday morning for some works to do until upcoming Thursday and I kind of already miss them despite I had given them hugs and cuddles on my departure. Bleu (the left) has been suffering from itchiness on his face below ears for months. This must be chronicContinue reading “Relaxed Snapshot of”

A medi-dog on the ferry

I ran into a dog wearing a red vest printed ‘medidog’ aboard on the ferry when I headed to the spot I photographed these. He first sat on the deck between the crotch of his master. Once the ferry departed Circular Quay and approached to Harbour Bridge to pass under, he moved to the guardrail,Continue reading “A medi-dog on the ferry”

My first New Zealand 3: Christchurch

So here are a little more photographs I took at Christchurch while hopping on and off the trams.  I understood that they have been taking years long restoration process coming through since 2011 quake.  Some area were rebuilt while some area were in progress, or left as empty lots, which looked like as if timeContinue reading “My first New Zealand 3: Christchurch”

The eye of my masters

Because someone had said to me, ‘You have two masters at home’, I will accept my position as not the owner of them but the ‘staff’ of them to take care.  😉 Anyway, I recently have got lens extension kit for smart phone and I started playing with it a bit.  These were taken withContinue reading “The eye of my masters”

A piece of work of the day 9

A snapshot of my pastel drawing work I was done yesterday.  The image came to back of my head last week when I smelled at a custom blend essential oil for aroma therapy. The oil called ‘Ho’oponopono’. Ancient Hawaiian exercises the practice of forgiveness / reconciliation. The scent was certainly brought me a relaxed andContinue reading “A piece of work of the day 9”

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cheeky

His name is Bleu.  He thinks of himself a being that is the same as me. Yes it is true in a sense. He is curious, naughty, and smart.  He is my precious family member. I can not think of anything else but to introduce him into the community in line with contributing to DailyContinue reading “Weekly Photo Challenge: Cheeky”

A tale of whale and silhouettes of dolphins

There are two whale watching seasons coming to Sydney siders every year.  I had boarded on a boat for whale watching, or I grasped binoculars to catch them from high-points nearby ocean, but never managed. I finally made it seeing a group of them cruising at Byron Bay in an early morning.  We were atContinue reading “A tale of whale and silhouettes of dolphins”
