A photographic journey of 7 continents ...
On our way back from the Temple of Olympian Zeus, I noticed the Hadrian’s Arch was painted with the bright golden color by the sunset. I were almost running to the entrance of the Acropolis. I have seen many sunset, but this was once in a lifetime experience. The last ray of the sun rendered the Acropolis and the surrounding city into the glorious colors, morphing from golden to red to purple. Glory, that’s feeling filled my heart.
Wherever we went to, we brought the rain with us. The Sydney Harbour Bridge is the tallest steel arch bridge in the world. There is a tour that leads visitors to climb to its top. I'm sure it would be a totally different experience, but the weather was cloudy and rainy and the tour doesn't allow climbers to bring their own camera, so we decided to just enjoy it from afar.
When we got to the Mosque of Ibn Tulun, the sun was already low in the sky. We were the only visitors in its whole perimeter. Looking at the mosque and the spiral minaret, I felt I was standing in a Star Wars scene. A journey through Cairo is like a virtual time travel, including to the future.
Penguins are not just cute-looking, goofy-acting animals. They lay their eggs on top of the hill to see the first sunshine of early summer. They walk down and climb back to the hill every day or every other day, to the sea to find food for their kids. They are threatened by seals and crashed by waves onto the rocks. It's not an easy life that they are living.
You don't have to walk into a high-end restaurant to enjoy the beautiful food in Japan. Those dishes are so artfully plated that you want to cherish them instead of consuming them. It is said that it's because the resources was relatively scarce in the past so Japanese had to make the food appealing to appetite, however, I believe pursuing the attractive presentation to the extreme is in their blood. The elegant packaging design and decorative Kimono that girls wear are just two other examples.
