Paddling sounds in a tranquil lake 槳聲劃破萬籟湖

On 28 June 2012, I drove along Highway 400 from Toronto and went northbound 160km to Port McNicoll. The Calvert Park is adjacent to the lake shore with dense of green plant on the shore. A small broken deck is still in the waters and looks like the one at Nam Sang Wai in Yune Long, Hong Kong.

An afternoon stroll at Miln Dam Conservation Park 閑遊保育公園

A friend told me that there is a conservation park in Unionville, Toronto. The park is tranquil and beautiful, a good place for strolling. It is convenient to drive there in 15 minutes. While visiting this Miln Dam Conservation Park, I found that park staff were busy in preparing for the re-opening of the park.

I started driving from Toronto at 9am, along Highway 400 to the north for 160km﹐, exited at Highway 12, passed Maubaushene, a small town visited early this month. Victoria Harbour, destination of this trip, is located on its west, a small town on the waterfront. Exiting Highway 12 came to the Park Street, the main street from south to north, up to the lake shore.

City pulse in Mongkok 旺角之城市脈搏

In Hong Kong, Mongkok is a famous city pulse in Kowloon district. In the city, you will feel the prosperity of a busy city: many shops and street activities have attracted many people and international visitors. I love to use compact camera for street snaps, recording places of dynamics and cultural features. This album was made from photos taken on 2 Dec 2011 with Ricoh Digital GR3

A sunny office 一室艷陽天

This afternoon I was in a doctor's office and was sitting aside with my friend. The big window looked like a big screen presenting a blue sky with warm sunshine and beautiful clouds. I was attracted by the doctor's side silhouette when he conversed with my friend while the sun cast light behind him. The glass on the table created a vivid reflection of the beautiful sky and his silhouette in the window. I have the Ricoh Digital GR3 with me everyday and therefore took these photos.

On the waterfront of Maubaushene 閑遊湖濱小鎮

Toronto's Hwy 400 is running from south to north for more than several thousand kilometers. There are many attraction spots along the highway. In a sunny morning on 31 May, I was driving from Toronto for 150km and exited at Hwy 12 to visit a small town Maubaushene. It was the largest mill town in 1860. Its industries and businesses and many of its workers' cabins, have now vanished.
