and rivers,

through colorful landscapes,

or to barren land,

into the city,

or into lush forrest,

or secluded farm fields,

and even to alien terrain,

or if are you stuck with hundreds of travelers,

or all alone in a lonely highway to nowhere,

Weekly Photo Challenge: Broken

Broken. A term that we can apply to a structure ravaged by time.

Or to a place ravaged by the forces of nature.

(photo taken at Tacloban, after the typhoon Haiyan)

Or a societal state ravaged by a corrupt system, where the rich becomes richer and the poor becomes poorer.

Manila

Or it can even be applied to a perfect picture of opulence….

….when we are oblivious to the sufferings of the poor just outside our deaf walls.

Broken.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Threes / Flock of Birds

(Here’s my entry to this week’s WordPress photo challenge.)

Recently, here in the northern hemisphere where I live, I have been seeing flocks of geese in their majestic V-formation in our skies.  And they are flying north. That just mean one thing – spring is coming!

However this morning, as I looked in the sky, I saw a different flock of birds.

They seem to be in a somewhat V-formation as well. But why are they not heading north? Does it mean spring and summer will skip us this year?

IMG_3196

No. Because they are not a flock of geese, and they are not even birds at all! They are steel birds!

IMG_3197

They are a flock of stunt planes, and they are probably practicing for an upcoming air show. That means spring (and summer) is not far behind indeed.
