Saw these two wash basins in small shop, still unopened early in the morning. The colour is exquisite, helped by the muted lighting. Thank you.

The wall pictures are from the recent sequel to “Alice in Wonderland”.
This is, of course, the Mad Hatter, played by the sppoky Johnny Deppe.
The lighting was delicious. I enjoyed the picture-taking and let the tea run cold.
Waited a while for the bartender to get in place.

Thank you. Cycling on a road that doesn't have to lead somewhere. Just peddle. How nice.

Thank you. Took me a while - to decide to focus on the background, leaving the two in soft focus.
Seems better than the other way.

Thank you. I get this feeling of relief, when I step under a well-shaded tree, after walking for a while in the hot sun. Cool-aid?
Walking the dogs in the park

Thank you. With manual focus, the challenge was to get the dogs in focus.

Thank you. That day, after the rain, I decided to do it in colour, as the fallen leaves had added drama to the pic. It was still a dull day.

Early morning sky at 6am in Chinatown. This is an old tea merchant, importing real tea leaves. The sign is new though - "New Spring Tea Store".
Old folks tea break

Thank you. Can you feel the old folks' tea break? Doing it slowly, with deliberation, for tea break is something they do not do to get to something else; it is something they do.
A walk path full of interests

Thank you. Someone had given a lot of thoughts to the design of this park; walk paths are seldom straight, and are surrounded by trees and rocks. The fun for me, as a photographer, is to look at it from different angles, and height.

Thank you. There are trees and there are trees. Came out to the carpark, to see this resting on the sky. Lucky to have my 50 Lux.

Thank you. A catwalk.

Nice to have the waves lapping the black muddy shore. Must be the tide starting to come in.

Thank you. I have always wanted to capture the mood of a "dull" scene well. If captured right, it can't be bad. Keep trying.

Yeah. I guess. Really should have been more horizontal, in this case. Can't have the ocean water draining out.

Yes, it is. Of course it is not "correct". But, is it necessarily bad? I don't know. I do it sometimes, on purpose, even in landscape. May be in this case, the requirement for "horizontal" is dictated by the horizon?

Appreciate your comments. The rooftop was full of these cement beams criss-crossing. Wonderful place to shot, when the weather is right. I agree with you about the symmetric triangle. May be I could have tilted the frame (or my head) to shape it that way; however, I might have lost part of the building. Goes back to the fault in the original framing of the shot.

Thank you. Small things matter - the woman looking side-way towards the camera, the people at the back faintly discerned. Of course, the colours bland. They came together, by luck.

Thank you. See this often, but getting the right people to sit in there, looking right, is luck.

Thank you. This is an interesting photo, in my mind. The scene itself was quite plain; it was the silhouette of the branch that enlivened it.
