Disappearance of a beautiful scene 消失了的美景

【Ontario Yours to Discover】《Disappearance of a beautiful scene》: In June 2011, I took the photographs of a beautiful farm on 16th Avenue near Kennedy Avenue in Toronto. The small houses and the wide green field were attractive and lovely. In September 2012, I went to the same location to capture the last face of the farm before it was turned to a residential estate. Today, I went again for an update of the progress of the construction site and saw some new houses were built. The beautiful scene of the farm has gone forever.

Sunset at the cathedral 日暮大教堂

【Photo Inspiration】

《Sunset at the cathedral》: by Peter Bok
A glimpse of the sunlight behind the cathedral eaves 
Aroused my desire to chase after the shadow sheaves. 
Without red sun and homeward geese, 
Light rays added beauty to the silhouette.

Dancing Swan 舞鵝

【Ontario Yours to Discover】

《Dancing Swan》 by Peter Bok
Red beak is lustful and tenderly
Her turning glance is elegant and lovely
Feathers with heavy makeup appear graceful
Flying dew condense around her waddling body
