Dedicated to Earth Day 2016.

When I entered the Garden of Fragrance in Singapore Chinese Garden today, I saw this bird walking along the edge of Jurong Lake. It was apparently looking for food in the lake.


From its physical features and the way it walked, I thought that it was a young heron but I was not absolutely certain. Until fairly recently, I was very much an indoor person who did not pay much attention to the surrounding world of nature.


Flickrians who are interested in the world of birds may like to check out Corinne von Nordmann's photostream which contains beautiful images of 'superstar' birds.


P.S. From similar images I have found through Google searches, I can now say, "Yes, it's a heron!" More precisely, it is a Little Heron.

It was snowing couple of times this year, but barely saw it at Niagara Falls (melting). I remember the icing world of Niagara Falls year ago… Searched my archived photos, just by watching these photos, I could feel the icing cold, remembered my hands numbed, eyelashes iced together, camera died due to -28C, could not touch tripod… 😉 It was very cold that year, even the water sprays were frozen in the air... Most of the Niagara Falls were frozen except horseshoe falls which flew forever. The Niagara river was covered with the thick ice, but the power flow from the horseshoe falls was still on… it never stops!


It was sunrise, but the sun was blocked behind the clouds, very light morning colors. On the right corner, you can see the observing platform which was covered with icing… the photo of this platform is here 😊


Stay healthy and safe!

Best Regards!

Jaarlijks op 8 augustus is het 'internationale KatteIntendag' (World Cat Day). Deze dag is een soort Dierendag, maar dan alleen voor katten, waarop ze extra verwend worden.


Every year on August 8 it is 'International Cat Day' (World Cat Day). This day is a kind of Animal Day, but only for cats, on which they are extra spoiled.

Der Weltelefantentag wird jedes Jahr am 12. August gefeiert. ... Der Weltelefantentag wurde ins Leben gerufen, um die Schwierigkeiten asiatischer und afrikanischer Elefanten hervorzuheben, die vielen Bedrohungen wie Wilderei, Verlust von Lebensräumen, Konflikten mit Menschen und Misshandlungen in Gefangenschaft ausgesetzt sind.


World Elephant Day is celebrated on August 12th each year. ... World Elephant Day was created to highlight the difficulties faced by Asian and African elephants, who face many threats such as poaching, habitat loss, conflict with people and abuse in captivity.

Have you ever thought what it would be like to live in a world without colours?


Free yourself for a moment from your expierence, forget all that you`ve learned and start using your imagination.


Try to visualise your body, the people around you, the seas. the sky, trees, flowers, in short everything colorless.

Imagine that there is no colour around you.

Try to think how you would feel if people, cats, dogs, birds, butterflies, and fruits had no colour at all.


You would never want to live in such a world, would you ?


(thank you for your patience bebe, on this shot ♥)

Hug an elephant today.


I guess it's World Elephant Day today. Didn't know until I saw a couple posts about it so I had to bring this back.


This is from some time ago but I decided to put it up again to honor elephants. They have to be one of my favorite animals.


This is me actually getting hugged by an elephant. Her name is Susie. Can you feel the joy? I was on the verge of joyful laughing.


World Elephant Day! Yah!!!

Taken at Luane's World - Le Monde Perdu - Winter


It's wonderful

Everywhere, so white

The river has frozen over

Not a soul on the ice

Only me, skating fast


I'm speeding past trees

Leaving little lines in the ice

Cutting out little lines

In the ice, splitting, splitting sound

Silver heels spitting, spitting snow


There's something moving

Under, under the ice

Moving under ice

Through water

Trying to (it's me) get out of the cold water

It's me

Something (it's me), someone help them

The first known reference to a The World-bearing Turtle is found in a letter by Jesuit Emanuel da Veiga (1549–1605), written at Chandagiri on 18 September 1599, in which the relevant passage reads:

"Others hold that the earth has nine corners by which the heavens are supported.

Another disagreeing from these would have the earth supported by seven elephants, and the elephants do not sink down because their feet are fixed on a tortoise.

When asked who would fix the body of the tortoise, so that it would not collapse, he said that he did not know".



When you carry the world upon your shoulders, do you have someone to carry you?



Inspired by a drawing I saw in a book my grandfather gave me long ago about the Earth. A Hindu drawing about an old myth (from Wiki): "The World Turtle (also called the Cosmic Turtle or the World-bearing Turtle) is a mytheme of a giant turtle (or tortoise) supporting or containing the world. The mytheme, which is similar to that of the World Elephant and the Hindu World Serpent (not to be confused with the Norse World Serpent), occurs in Hindu mythology, Chinese mythology and the mythologies of the Indigenous peoples of the Americas".

Pay attention to the little one in the world,

this makes the life richer and more contented

Carl Hilty


All around me are familiar faces

Worn out places, worn out faces

Bright and early for the daily races

Going nowhere, going nowhere

Their tears are filling up their glasses

No expression, no expression

Hide my head, I wanna drown my sorrow

No tomorrow, no tomorrow

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles it's a very, very

Mad world, mad world

Children waiting for the day they feel good

Happy birthday, happy birthday

And I feel the way that every child should

Sit and listen, sit and listen

Went to school and I was very nervous

No one knew me, no one knew me

Hello, teacher! Tell me, what's my lesson?

Look right through me, look right through me

And I find it kind of funny

I find it kind of sad

The dreams in which I'm dying

Are the best I've ever had

I find it hard to tell you

I find it hard to take

When people run in circles it's a very, very

Mad world, mad world

Enlarging your world

Mad world....

The terraced fields are built along the slope winding from the riverside up to the mountain top, between 600 m to 800 m above sea level. A coiling terrace line that starts from the mountain foot up to the mountain top divides the mountain into layers of water in spring, layers of green rice shoots in summer, layers of rice in fall, and layers of frost in winter. The terraced fields were mostly built about 650 years ago.


Longji (Dragon's Backbone) Terraced Rice Fields received their name because the rice terraces resemble a dragon's scales, while the summit of the mountain range looks like the backbone of the dragon.


In early June, water is pumped over the rice paddies and young plants are transferred to the main terraces.

This 20 metres tall, 12 tons heavy sculpture made of steel, by the Chinese sculptor Yao Yuan, can be found in Grandcamp-Maisy (where it is quite eye-catching, let me tell you!). The piece, called La Paix dans le Monde (which means World Peace in French) was inaugurated in 2004 in memory of the 1944 D-Day landings in the area.

Tribute to the victims of the Atomic bombing of Hiroshima 75 years ago on the 6th of Aug 1945.

A Macro Monday Runner up

Mists of Avalon 🎧


I am born of a time before men

when the World was raw.

The wisdom of rocks and fire

and earth and blood

is in my veins.

For now I live in

a World of mists

beyond the reach of

mortal man

but the time shall come

when I shall rise again.


In a world of black and white, I still see color.


Take me to a world of silver

No more heartbreaks, tears, painkillers

Take me somewhere unfamiliar

Bring me back to Where We Started out

Our empty hearts and neon lights

They're playing with my mind

Gotta get out of it tonight

I wanna run off and float

And I'll tell myself It's fine to be alone

Just to find somewhere that finally feels like home

I hate all this overthinking (Oh-oh-oh-oh)

The more I swim, the more i'm sinking

Broken hearts and starting fights

Turning truths to lies

Gotta get out, stop wasting time



I wanna run off and float

And I'll tell myself It's fine to be alone

Just to find somewhere that finally feels like home

I hate all this overthinking (Oh-oh-oh-oh)

The more I swim, the more i'm sinking



Take me to a world of silver

No more heartbreaks, tears, painkillers

Take me somewhere unfamiliar

Bring me back to Where We Started out


Get me out of now

To Where We Started out

Get me out of now

To Where We Started out

If you use Photoshop, which is fascinating, you can get a whole different story or scene in your photo. I did this here. You can decide for yourself whether this is rather perfect or rather imperfect when you look at the original in the first comment. Deserted street and suddenly two happy lovers and a loner. I also like the dawn, but you have to get up so early ;-)
