Mahjong is a very popular game among Chinese, it takes four to play together. People usually play at someone’s house because most of the time it involves money and it can go on and on for a long time. A friendly game of Mahjong can provide an opportunity for the elderly to passed their time as well as to gossip. I took this photo because it was the first time I saw it played outdoors in a park in China. Notice how these ladies came prepared!
I am submitting a second photo taken at a shopping mall in Hong Kong today because it depicts together in a very different way. Young and old in any cosmopolitan city might feel like they are together with others or themselves in front of a monitor.
I dare not look directly to the sun without some shield. I picked this photo of the sun setting but still high on the sky while traveling in Egypt. If you look close enough,you can see the moon too but the sun is still the star!
I have been too busy to play with Mailchimp. Getting this newsletter written was an accomplishment already! Setting up a new desktop computer is easy but getting all my mailing list transported is another story.
I really appreciate this week’s photo challenge. As a photographer, how can I deal with two primary subjects in a composition and to have them “fight” for the viewer’s attention? Thanks for expanding my observation, I hope my photo serves this purpose. If I can darken the concrete post it should be a better contrast of the two subjects.
A journey usual takes one from one place to another, from a starting point to a destination. Here I peek into a secret garden with stones laid in a certain pattern to form a labyrinth. There was someone taking a spiritual journey inward, looks like she is reflecting and meditating while taking each step forward.
I went to a retreat with my church this week before Good Friday. I packed my little camera with me hoping to capture some images for this week’s challenge on arranged. I took a shot of the gate of the retreat center with crosses arranged in certain order, then I walked to the near-by beach and saw life-savers arranged on a pole. Two images shared similar meanings of a way to life, no matter it is eternal or temporal. Somehow, due to the materials used, their arrangements, and their intended purposes- the outcome gave me very different feelings.
