LOOKING FOR TREASURE 2

Sorry that I have not put a foot note to the last post of "Looking for treasure".
It is about a few discovery walks into places surrounding us, looking for the inconspicuous awe.

Silver pearls are everywhere in these humid days ...


Water interweaves into a fine piece of lace ...


Exquisite shades of grays ...


We did not notice their presence till we fostered our attention and looked closely ... there were lots of tiny living creatures in the water ...


We always perceive this lush green as a whole ... a generic piece of green.
But when we allowed our eyes to stop at a particular unknown plant ... then shifted to the other, then another ... we suddenly sensed the vitality of this piece of land.
There are so many species of plants, so different in colors, forms and gestures ...



On the last post of "Looking For Treasure 1", one of the "gem" was the little bug on the top picture. We followed its voice and spotted its location. Another one was the old abandoned house. It's a different one we found in one of our journey. Through the window, installation revealed little secret of some old days.

真好,学会凝视,就会发现一个更丰富美丽的世界。所以城市里也有自然,都市里也有乡村,我们只需超乎平常的一个视角和视野。Iza 真幸福...

讓孩子到大自然的環境裡尋找及探索是最好的教育方法呢.

Incredible photos, sensitive words and a beautiful discovery.

YOU, dear Alliot are a treasure for us to watch.

I am on my way to Hong Kong and I hope, a peek at you and Iza.
