It's not a full moon today, but the moon still looked pretty round this morning, there are some clouds moving towards the moon, I tried to frame both into the picture
🔸2.3.2018 Super Bowl (超级碗)
I am not a sports fan, but it's impossible to ignore the annual football championship game, which is a big deal for many Americans, who get together on Super Bowl Sunday to watch the final game while eating, drinking, and having a good time with friends
It's been very cold and wet lately, no snow, but freezing rain, the lonely maple leaf was covered by a sheet of ice
🔹2.5.2018 Windy Morning （大风的早晨）
A cold and blustery morning, the temperature was below zero, the water in the pond rattled with the strong wind, the sound of the water pounding was very loud, trying to capture the moment of the waves coming down the terraced pond
I have seen all colors of the sky at sunrise, sometimes very bright and golden, sometimes scarlet red, but this morning I see a rainbow of colors
🔹2.9.2018 Pink Cymbidium Orchids (粉红色蕙兰）
My Cymbidium orchids are blooming now, and they could continue to bloom for about 8 to 10 weeks, this is one of the spikes, actually there are more spikes ready to bloom, I promise to take another photo when they are in full bloom
Morning sunlight shining on the water surface, creates fabulous silver dots in patterns, so brilliant and beautiful
🔸2.16.2018 Chinese Red (中国红)
It seems an ordinary day, since I still have to go to work, but its actually Chinese New Years day, I left work a little early, went to the mall, there are many Chinese elements, the red lantern hanging up high, and the red jumping carp was also very eye catching
A fast moving snowstorm coming to D.C. The weather is forecasted as sleet and wet snow starting around 2 o'clock in the afternoon, as predicted the snow came, by the evening the ground has been all but covered by heavy wet snow, the trees are looking so beautiful in the snow.
I have been to this lake several times lately, taking the same picture over and over again, but not getting tired of it, this image was taken in the morning, right after sunrise, I really like how it turned out
Experimenting with double exposures by combining two similar photos, it did not come out as expected, but it’s a learning process, need to practice more
🔹2.20.2018 B & W (黑白照)
Have you ever noticed that sometimes you work so hard to achieve something, but the result is not as good as you expected, on the other hand, sometimes when you least expect it, you get a surprisingly good result, this black and white photo is the perfect example, shot it in a hurry, the result is a delicate carnation
Summer like weather today, hot air strikes, the highest temperature today reached 78 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius) breaking the record. People wearing T-shirts and shorts on the street, a summer day in February
I have to confess, the black and white carnation photo that I shot couple of days ago was done inside my car．I brought the flowers to my office, on the way, I see the dark background against the single flower, decided to shoot a low key photo of it. These carnations could last a long time, still looking good in the vase in my office, here are the true colors of that beautiful carnation.
In this square photo, there are several colors: such as green, white, khaki, and gray, there are lines and patterns, it can be thought of as an abstract painting. In fact, it’s a puddle of water by the roadside, I saw it during my lunch break. There were reflections of trees in it, the result of lowering my cell phone to take the shot
It's been foggy almost every day lately, this morning I drove to DC, parked my car and walked towards the Tidal Basin, I saw that the water was strangely calm, no wind and no birds in sight, the branches of the cherry blossoms hung low near the water, it's visible now that a lot of green buds are starting to come through. In a little more than a month, it would be full of pink colors, the season of cherry blossoms would soon be here
It's been a while since I’ve gone to my favorite garden, the weather is starting to get warmer, I was wondering how the garden would look now. Walking along the path to the lake, the first sight coming into my view is this little bridge’s reflection, the tree next to it is blooming with tiny yellow flowers, spring is here!
I am fascinated with the geometric shapes in the lotus pond, by this time of the year, the lotus pond has only sticks left to see, but the amazing thing is that the sticks and it's reflections formed very interesting shapes, it's nature's artwork! I spent quite a while by the pond, shooting all kinds of photos
After almost a whole week without sunshine, this morning is finally seeing the bright sunshine and cloudless blue sky. A nice day to walk outside to breathe in the fresh air and enjoy the sunny day. The magnolia tree is full of buds ready to bloom.
It seems I couldn't get enough of the carnations, I am using one pink carnation to experiment with multiple exposures. It turned out like this, still not the ideal image that I had in my mind, but it's getting closer to what I wanted.
