Some play with two fallen leaves

Two leaves of Common Philodendron fell from my balcony. The colors of one leaf had turned into totally yellow with a little burn on the top of the leaf, and the other one nearly all yellow, yet with some pale green among the yellow. I like the colors of these leaves, so against the sunlight beside the window I took a few shots, and made some post-productions.


Life as a theater, like a dream

I like to watched the glove puppet theater (or called the hand puppet theater) since I was a child. In the age of everything are deficient, 'Chivalrous swordsman from Yuan District' theater of Huang Chun-Hsiung had enriched the children imagination of that time. Decades go by, the theater had transmitted to his sons, the puppets are more delicate, scripts are more complicate and imaginative, making their steps of the theater into the movie and computer games, and even popular to overseas. Yet where the boys or girls are who ever wanted to give up their study in schools and go to the mountains to learn martial? As the Chinese movie title of 'The Puppetmaster' directed by Hou Hsiao-hsien, 'life as a theater, like a dream'. At the '2008 Love River Puppet Culture Festival' held by Kaohsiung Museum of History last month, I refreshed and updated my memory.

Architectures of Kaohsiung rapid transit station

Rapid transit system in Kaohsiung city of Taiwan is divided into ‘orange’ and ‘red’ two systems. The full systems open up on September 22, 2008. While the two subsystems were open separately, both of them had a period of free ride for promotion. On this free ride period I took a series shot of their architecture structure. Yet the results of those pictures were not very satisfied, after all the angle of shooting was very limited for an ordinary tourist. Besides I’m very impressed by the kindness of the workers on every stations of the rapid transit system.
