Majestic sky

…that I saw this morning.  The world was began in totally grey and heavy and thick clouds, and it suddenly put some pink shades piping the clouds and turned the world to be bright.  This dramatic sky lasted only 10 to 20 minutes ( i do not know the exact length, but it is how I felt), and quickly disappeared in heavy and thick blanket of clouds.

I was really lucky to witness this magical sky in the morning, thank you Bleu and Shiraz for banging me to get me out of the bed (for their breakfast..).  🙂

Tourmaline

Tourmaline have great variety of colors but these little rocks are in my collection.  I also have small tumbled black Tourmaline, not just in the photos).

Pink, Green, and Watermelon.

These look boiling candy and fascinate me as good as it gets, but they also make me feel warm and soothing.

I hope I could share their good energy with you too.  🙂

Snapshots of Blackwattle Bay in one summer afternoon

These were photographed a few days before I flew to Japan to close my 2018.

I procrastinate taking additional half hour for photography after work, but that day was only exception.  I would have not tried any big shot but simply hoped to catch a summer afternoon in Sydney.

Then why didn’t I choose somewhere near or under Harbour Bridge?  I don’t know.  My house is not in the direction where Anzac Bridge leads to, but Anzac Bridge adores me for its architecture and keeps me coming back to, and that day seemed be one of that.

Being so, I did not take a walk the path alongside Blackwattle Bay and I found number of small challenges in taking snapshots.

It was a little fun afternoon.

Happy New Year

I hope 2019 came with bringing smiles and peace to you.

I took a flight to Japan on 30th of Dec at night, to spend new years eve and day with family there.  My first week of 2019 was past as fast as giving one blink.

It was certainly short holiday, and despite the fact that it was really cold there (yes it was to me!) that it was in the range of -1 to 10 deg C, I was clear, energetic and had a great time.  I forgot to take photos in many occasions during the stay, but here are some I caught.

I am glad to be back in here, and I will look forward having more sharing and exchanging photos and journals with you ahead!
