Unforgettable Scene 難忘的場景

【Photo Inspiration】 《Unforgettable Scene》
Text / Photography by Peter Bok

Sky
Is a theater of nature
Sun moon stars are actors
Clouds are setting
This moment
The whole sky is tinted with cloudy hues
Sunset twilight is being staged

Kaleidoscopic View of Life 巧觀人生

【Photo Inspiration】
《Kaleidoscopic View of  Life》
- Text / Photography by Peter Bok

Crawling between somebody's legs is humiliating 
Prostrating grief shows deep mourning 
Wanna view heavens and earth differently 
Let's lie on dragon's terrace 
for a spectacular angle of seeing

First Glimmer of Life 人生的曙光

【Photo Inspiration】《First Glimmer of Life》
Adapted the melody of the verse《Song in the Midnight》
Text / Photography by Peter Bok

Morning clouds resemble a thick black yarn in the sky 
Onto the beach waves come after the retreating tide 
Above the serene lake 
Hundred of Birds are flying high 
Following a small boat 
A goose is doing her lonely glide

Upon seeing them 
I fell deeply in retrospect 
Barely recollecting the loving moments 
I had had from my father 
Before the end of his life!

Daybreak Toronto Waterfront 多倫多湖濱初曉

【Photo Inspiration】《Daybreak Toronto Waterfront》
Adapted the melody of the verse《Memory for Jiangnan in Two Tunes》 Text / Photography by Peter Bok

Sky is like a satin in purple-red 
Warbling birds fly off their nest 
In colorful ripples 
White swan gently moves with the web 
Spinning through gentle waves 
Kayaks practice race for the best 
Let's strive with no rest

Up on the sunny ridge 
I climb to the peak 
All the black white good and bad 
Are on my feet 
Without forgetting maternal love and her brilliant deed 
To get me a poetry book for my learning need*

Glimmer on the Cliff 懸崖晨曦

【Photo Inspiration】《Glimmer on the Cliff》
Adapted the melody of the verse《Southern Spring》
Text / Photography by Peter Bok

At six in the morning sky 
The moon is still hanging high 
To the steep cliff is surging tide 
Willows on the dike have flourishing twigs 
On the lake the morning sun rises 
Let bright red and gold threads 
Make this an embroidery skyline

【Behind the Image】《Afterglow over Toronto Train Yard》At 7pm today, having a fine weather with thin and light clouds in the sky, I went to Canadian Pacific Railway Toronto Yard near Middlefield Road, Toronto and hoped to capture the beauty of the afterglow. I climbed up the ramp to the bridge over the train yard to get the higher and best position to compose the shot.

Spring comes to a rural
With serene water and winding road
Teasel flutters over L'Amoraux
By the Rouge River cattail leans
I have snapped the scene

Unbearable Cold in Early Spring 寒風難耐已初春

【Ontario Yours to Discover】 《Unbearable cold in early spring》: Today is sunny with wintry at 6°C but it feels like 0°C. A light snow occurred in the morning. My photo buddy John and I had an afternoon coffee before going for an hour walk at the nearby Toogood Pond in Toronto. This pond is located in the residential area in the community of Unionville.  An artificial pond, wooden bridge, winding trail and various plants have composed beautiful scenery that makes Toogood Pond a popular place for a walk and landscape photography.

Reminiscing Durham Road 9 情牽九號公路

【Ontario Yours to Discover】《Reminiscing Durham Road 9》: I first visited Durham Road 9, also known as Ganaraska Road in 2011. In hundred years ago, it was one of the busiest highways in Central Ontario running from west to east in 50km to Rice Lake. It passed through many historic towns in Central Ontario but was gradually taken over by the Highway 401 as the main east-west highway.

Night view of Toronto Nathan Philips Square 多倫多彌敦菲獵廣場夜景

【Behind the Image】 "Night shots at the Toronto Nathan Philips Square": Owing to my illness and cold weather, I have not taken photographs in the past three weeks, but staying home as a "house-male". Temperature went up to 8°C last night. At 9, I went to Nathan Philips Square in front of the Toronto City Hall to take night photography. This is one of my first visits to the Square in Toronto back to twenty odd years ago when I settled in Toronto. I have not visited the Square in the last five years.

1881 Heritage 文物1881

【Photo Journey】《Heritage 1881》In 2014, I returned to Hong Kong and visited the former Hong Kong Marine Police Headquarters which ceased its operation in 1996 and became the "Heritage 1881" in Tsim Sha Tsui. This new architectural complex retained the main building of the marine police headquarters, stable block, time ball tower, fire station and accommodation block. My last visit did not let me get a full view of the building complex because of the restricted opening to the public.
