In Memory of Ashley and Kingston I

I must thank Bertrand Linet for this downloaded photograph. Both, my rottweiler Ashley and dachshund Kingston I, had left us sometime ago. We now have only   Doberman Pinscher Princeton.

Please note all my photographs in this blog are resized so some might appear blurry and out-of-focus as if, due to poor photography. I use old three Canon DSLR’s ie EOS 5D Mk III, EOS 70D and EOS 40D. Apologies if my photographs are artistic and below par.

Chang Yen Yeou’s Review of a photograph taken 28 years ago   2 comments


“Review 28yrs photo…” taken from Facebook on a post by Chang Yen Yeou at my mother-in-law’s house at a happy event. I just cannot recall what event at all.

Chang Yen Yeou’s Review of a photograph taken 28 years ago – thank you for the photograph. Photograph showed the blogger with moustache with his late wife Saw Ai having their buffet dinner with Yen Yeou’s wife and children, I presume. It brings happy and sad memories – happy at the event and sad that I missed my better half for the last six years.

I was informed that it was Mr Chew Jin Chew’s House-warming party at Rose Avenue, Penang. My memory is just not working that well.

Weekly Photo Challenge ~ Life Partners of Love and Happiness   Leave a comment


Weekly Photo Challenge

Partners
Whether two of a kind or ten, give us subjects that are in sync with one another — show us partnerships.
BY MICHELLE W.

*************************************************************************************************************************************************

My submission is that of “Life Partners of Love and Happiness” as from the Teochew Chinese Opera entitled “Tale of the Dragon Princess”. This is the marriage scene. Love has no bounds and blind as an immortal fairy Princess from the sea fall in love with a mortal human being. In the end she gave up her immortality to marry this male human being.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Life Partners of Love and Happiness

*************************************************************************************************************************************************

Bologna, Italy. The Basilica of San Petronio. A balmy June evening. While I worked on my second gelato of the day, a Bolognese gentleman and his miniature canine doppelgänger strolled through the piazza on what I assume was their nightly constitutional (or, for an Italian, a passeggiata), pausing on the basilica steps for some people watching.

Photo not included of man and dog

The two of them were perfectly in tune: the man looked left, the dog looked left. The man looked right, the dog looked right. The man shifted to find a more comfortable position, the dog scooted alongside. After ten minutes or so, it was time to move on; the dog trotted away at the man’s heel. No leash needed — they were in step (and there are no cars in the piazza). Passeggiata partners.

This week, share an image of partners. A pair, a trio, a sextet; people, buildings, plants — whatever you choose to shoot, give us subjects that are in tune with one another.

Cheng Beng for my late wife   4 comments


Cheng Beng

Niche of my paternal Grandfather, the late Lim Chong Poh who passed away in th 1930’s thus no photograph as yet until I find one.

Cheng Beng for my late wife

We had a Cheng Beng prayers for my late wife, Saw Ai, my paternal grandfather – Lim Chong Poh and grand-uncle – Lim Chong Pin, at the niches of Wat Chaiya Mangalaram Thai Buddhist Temple, Burmah Lane, Penang. my future niche for my ashes is there beside my wife when I “kick the bucket” (pass away) in future. Life is uncertain but death is certain, as the Buddha said. We chose a week day ie Wednesday, March 30, 2016 as there shall be lesser devotees.

The prayers went smoothly with my mother and family members; and ended with burning of joss papers – a old traditional Taoist practice that is difficult to forego even as Buddhists.

Photo 101 ~ My 10 Favourites from the Course   18 comments


Photo 101 ~ My 10 Favourites from the Course

I had finished the Photo 101 Course with a daily post for more than 20 continuous days. In face of some obstacles like having no internet for nearly 16 hours, unstable internet in my area, the unfortunate incident of my dogs “biting incident” resulting with my two bitten fingers on my left hand and the heat wave in the country with temperatures soaring above 40 degrees Celsius, everything ended favourably. If there is a will, there is a way unless one kick the bucket.

Some facts I discovered and learned from the bloggers/photographers are :-

1. The thinking and subsequent action on the given theme is not always the same with the participating bloggers. True, as every human being is different from each other, thus we are see an array of different photographs uploaded on their individual blog. Different thinking on the theme so we have different photographs.

2. Every blogger is usually a loving, caring, kind, compassionate person with the place of residence that is generally peaceful and beautiful in nature. I had seen so many beautiful places, buildings, landscapes, animals, birds, sea creatures, flowers and other interesting things which in my life-time I shall have no time or opportunity to travel and see due to my matured age. Thank you for all these lovely and informative photographs that are shared on these blogs.

3. I was just wondering why the current troubled world cannot emulate the blogosphere we have here – peaceful, loving, friendly, diverse, harmonious and caring community of people from different countries, ideology, religions and culture. War, human conflicts, terror, global warming and climate threats shall result in more problems and troubles for us on this only home we have – Earth.

I end here and crawl back into my tiny space of peace and harmony with my pets. Bye, my fellow bloggers, photographers, viewers, friends, and the people of this planet.

Hooray! You made it.
(Virtual) high-fives all around! Congratulations on finishing Photography 101 — we’re so happy you joined us for this photo-a-day journey this month, and hope that the daily themes and tips inspired you.

End of Photo 101

A quiet moment among feluccas on the Nile River in Cairo, Egypt.

Feel free to sit back and take it easy this weekend. But if you’re itching for a bit more, consider these projects as we wrap up the course:

Browse your collection of shots from the course, select up to ten favorites, and publish a wrap-up post with a gallery.
Look through your shots to see which themes and tips you enjoyed the most. Did you take a lot of establishing shots? Close ups? Abstract images? Great color shots? Compile your favorites in a post.
Pick one element we covered during the course, then head out with your camera to practice: composition, light, movement, color, or something else of your choosing.
Revisit the themes. Are there any themes you’d like to try again? What would you do differently? What have you learned?
Want to explore photography topics in more depth? Browse the “Craft of Photography” topic on The Daily Post. You can also download our Photography 101 e-book, which compiles resources and tutorials from various photographers on WordPress.com.

The Commons will remain open for posting and commenting for one more week, so you can catch up on anything you’ve missed.

Thank you for joining us this month!

Cheers,
Josh and the WordPress.com Team
