Toogood Pond in May 五月的池塘

In a sunny afternoon in May, I went to Toogood Pond in Toronto for leisure walk and took scenic photos. I made the first visit to this pond last May for landscape photography. However I prefer autumn in Toronto because most of the leaves have not fallen and they look scattered.

Looking through the dandelion 看透蒲公英

In early spring, the dandelions are beautiful, as if grassland covered with a piece of gauze decorated with many small and yellow flowers. In a sunny afternoon I was strolling and taking photos at the Toogood Pond in Toronto with my Ricoh Digital GR3 compact camera. I found some dandelions along the trail in the bush.

Silhouettes in Yaumatei Fruit Market 油麻地菓欄的剪影

I was born and brought up in Hong Kong and had never been to the Yaumatie Fruit Market, a historical landmark in the area. In 2010 I returned to Hong Kong and made my first visit on 10 March. The structure of the market has hipped roof which is based on the traditional Chinese building style. There were many wholesale stores inside the market.

Beauty of colors in a small world 幻彩小世界

Today, I used my camera to capture the close-ups of the flowers, twigs and new buds. In a micro small world, I envisage the vitality of growth in the world of natural plants and their willpower of development. The beauty of fascinating colors is found in close-up shots through the camera lens. This has given me a lot of joy in creative photography.

Dandelions in a lazy afternoon 懶洋洋的午後小黃花

In early spring of April, dandelions are seen blooming everywhere, adding yellow colors on the green grassland. However, dandelion is the source of hay fever that annoys some people with allergy in Canada. In the lazy afternoons, I have spent my leisure to take some snapshots of these yellow flowers in Toronto.

A scenic change on the road 景色蛻變

On 25 April 2012 I was so impressed by the dilapidated hut in the scene that the photo album of "A Wonderful Scene on the Road" was created.  Six days later on 1 May when I passed the same place again I found that the hut was demolished and replaced with a smaller one.  Lacking the "beauty of dilapidation", the scene is not so impressive as before.  With this thought, I feel that beautiful scene is short-lived and transient.  Our life is the same.  We have to cherish the present moment and love those around us. We do not know when is the time all these people and things will disappear in a short moment in front of us, just like falling petals and river of no return.  Therefore, pay more attention to things around and more care of your beloved ones.
