For The flickr Community

This is for Denis Collete & the flickr community.

flickr chief would have to bring his own vinegar.

The product shot here is using available lights, & it is low lights conditions. These are the real products . I shoot it by opening the freezer door. It is under low light & indoor condition.

When shooting product shot, most often one would be restricted by the layout; space; environment & concept.

The key is to be creative & innovative in any situation. Then you would produce a successful & rewarding assignment.

Please spend time to view the image in various perspectives. The details would gives you many imaginations & also you find answer in nature!!

The Dawn of The End - 臥龍

The Dawn of The End - 臥龍

This is @ Wulong; Sichuan; China.

It is a coal fire plant. I am informed that the coals used for power generation in China shall be smoke & pollutants free.

However, when you looking at the atmosphere here, you can see the smokes; smog; heat & pollutions.

Coal have created many millionaires in China those poor provinces & cities. But Coal energy plants pollutants & containments would be the source to destroy China & the world.

Perhaps I am wrong the last I wrote about, my spiritual guru Kong Ming Zhuge Liang never foresee these about 200A.D..

In fact in his scripts, he did mentioned that the Fire is the cause of killing every lives of this world including China.

That is well explained why the bamboos are dying ; the Pandas are dying.

By the way, I snap this on the coach at 3,500m elevation, the road condition is bad.

This is great shot.

flickers @ Union Station

This is the 1st time I visit to Union Station in L.A.

I supposed to meet my fan's from Indonesia at the Tofu fair. & decided to take a metro to down town L.A. When I reached Union station. I never let my flickering habits gone by.

So, I start to snap all my way. It is interesting to meet so many young flickers @ the station. They were so happy to see me there when they are flickering. Questions asked were never un-answered.

It is glad to feel the rewarding feeling, when these flickers tell you, how much they enjoys the flickr community & also appreciating your knowledge; skills sharing & personal touch in the non-for-profits spirits.

You feel the achievements; accomplishments & happiness that money cannot buy!!


The lights are not as bright as you see in the actual scene. I have used the Corel Paintshop Pro Xi to clarify & Brighten it.

Food Porn 酿豆腐 - 色芬味香

This is the Vegetable fruits & fish Paste filling dumpling. 酿豆腐

Which it is known as Yong Tofu - 酿豆腐. But here I am not using Tofu, I am using the egg Plants, Chili & Okra which also called as Lady finger. Tofu is not show in this post.

The fish fillets need to be fresh Spanish Macherel . When I was in Wales, I used the local Mackerel, it don't work. As it have too much oil in it.

The Mackerel best from South east Asia & Pacific Ocean Coast. When ground the fish fillet, some ice need to added to hold the temperature at 50degree. Egg white need to be added as well. After grounded the fish as paste, it is important to compress it , traditionally, it t done by holding up that paste & throw it to the container & repeat at least 200times. Until one can feel that it is tender & have the spring effect.

Now you can use the blender machine or kitchen aids to do so.

Well, So much for now. Enjoy !!

World Tallest Plaza - Over 1,7XX years Ago - 黃鶴樓 天下第一樓

World Tallest Plaza - Over 1,7XX years Ago - 黃鶴樓 天下第一樓

This is the Yellow Crane Plaza, It was 1st built over 1,7XX years ago ( Some time 223A.D. in the 3 Kingdom era) mainly with wood.

From my appraisal, the building is actually built on a 300 -400ft elevation. Physical building is about 8 floors high. The 1st floor is about 40ft tall. Each floor is about 15ft high from floor to ceiling. These total for the physical height without the thrush & the roof part is 160ft high.

When including the thrush & roof it is estimated at 200ft.

The plaza have undergone many ups & downs.

It is still stood strong & healthy @ WuHan near Yang Zi river.

My computer is having Virus attack again with the wuauclt.exe keep showing up, since 8.30pm , I am attempting to resolve it.

I read from the google search, this virus is from Microsoft window lives auto updates program.

Windows errors related to wuauclt.exe ?
wuauclt.exe is a process managing automatic updates for Microsoft Windows. This process continuously checks for the latest updates and uses the Internet to do so. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated.

Note: The wuauclt.exe file is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. In other cases, wuauclt.exe is a virus, spyware, trojan or worm! Check this with......

Certainly, I am very upset like you do with Microsoft business conducts on these low standard of practice.

I am not impress.

According to Gotama, whatever the good deed once do by offering money & kinds would not be excuse from facing own karma due even after death.

The following is the Poem from Li Bai

故 人 西 辭 黃 鶴 樓,

煙 花 三 月 下 揚 州。

孤 帆 遠 影 碧 山 盡,

唯 見 長 江 天 際 流。


Thank fuyanyu for the poem in mandarin


昔 人 已 乘 黄 鹤 去,

此 地 空 余 黄 鹤 楼。

黄 鹤 一 去 不 复 返,

白 云 千 载 空 悠 悠!!

晴 川 历 历 汉 阳 树,

芳 草 萋 萋 鹦 鹉 洲。

日 暮 乡 关 何 处 是,

烟 波 江 上 使 人 愁!!

The above poem from Cui Jing.

Thank Luo Shaoyang for the post.


I like to thank Shi Han & his dad's Shi Yong for hosting my visit in WuHan, although is short trip.

But Shi Yong is very kind & attentive in making the best arrangement.

I whole heartily appreciate it.

This goldfinch (about 3 inch long) that I snap just outside my bedroom.

My experience is that I cannot even touch the lense on the double planes glass of the window, they can hear the sound.

So, I have to be extra caution this round, I hand held it, & the lense is behind the 2 planes glass as well as the wire netting. Thus gives a very soft feeling. This is a in flight shot. Only one shot is taken before he/she land on the plant & have their dinner.

This is a great shot.

Romantic Dusk @ AhBaZhou

Romantic Dusk @ AhBaZhou, originally uploaded by CharlieBrown8989.

Romantic Dusk @ AhBaZhou

This is the beautiful dusk @ AhBaZhou, the original home town of Panda.

The road condition is no good, very bumpy. I snaped this shot on the coach. The pollutants; dusts; Smog & mists & fogs make up this beautiful scene.

My Late Guru Zhu Ker Liang would never imaging his hide out become such polluted today. Otherwise he would have written on his predictions.


I am in the most critical danger in this trip, as I am traveling with my daughter & not escorted by the officials. Taking picture like these are consider sensitives issues, it underline many ill practices between local & foreign officials & businessmen.

My daughter have experiences & witnessed many narrow escape that I have to deal with the lower form of human beings.

You see exporting of manufacturing activities, exported the manufactured waste & pollutants to China as well.

China main issue on Global Worming Plus the Green & Sustainability mainly due to:

1. Rapid industrialization of 2nd wave industries to fulfill the demand of the developed & developing nations needs.

2. Increase jobs to cut down the poverty level, after moving into Market Economy. Which they need electric power to power the economy & provide jobs. Which they relies lots on coal fire power. That is the main cause you see the pink layer in the air.

3. According to the research I read, each human being manufactured about 50 Cubic tons of carbon P.A. Then when you compute the total carbon manufactured by 1.5Billions populations. Then you see the actual figure that human produce carbon in the air.

4. Rapid industrialization cut down lots of trees in China & also the Businessmen cut more trees to bring in to China to produce the goods & build factories or building materials etc...

So, as you read all my comments, China polluted the whole world is not because of China do it by itself, it is a highly connected world economy that make these pollutions in a circle & they are all involved.

Therefore, it is not right & no Point to just pointing to China.

The most important is how the Power & Political elites on this world to work together to act together to resolve these critical issues now before it is too late.

Beside China, India ( With 1Billions population & Coal fire power for the heavy industries) is another country that facing the same!!

I hope everyone can see these more clearly now.

Anyway, this is a great treasure shot.

It is like a Chinese reality painting.

Hot 2 To The Sky - 朝天椒

Hot 2 To The Sky - 朝天椒

In mandarin , this is call the Pointing To The Sky Chili.

From my experience, all Chili fruits that which are pointing to the sky on the plant itself are very hot & spicy.

Especially the small one, typically the diameter would not over 5mm.

Chili is used as a n agent to get ridge of the dampness Chi in the body according to the Chinese Herbs Sutra.

Most of the Asian people love to eat chili, especially those in Sichuan, QweeZhou; Indo China; South East Asia & India; Sri Langka; etc...

However, too much chili is no good for one health too. In particular the lung; skin.

I believes my guru Kong Ming never visualized this scene in Chengdu some 2,XXX years ago.

2. There are so many people people today!!

3. There are so many flickers love to flickr their Camera, even in the near mid-night hours like these shown.

I am very much surprise & impress that so many people busy doing whatever they love to do, courting love ones; shooting night scene on the bridge, cars & transport are still very congested at the mid-night hours.

It is even more surprise for me to found about 4 flickr members asking me to gives some free advise on shoot or flickering on night imaging!!

I am very very impress!! I am sure you do feel like me.

All Drops Big & Small - 大大小小

All Drops Big & Small - 大大小小

These droplets are on the grass of my yard.

It was taken early in the morning, therefore the color is not warm as if is taken at the later of the morning.

The pink color is the rose petal, the color blended in with the grass green very well.

When shooting close-up Macro, one have to attend to the details. My 1st thoughts was to clone out the top right & bottom left grass stem. But I do see that after cloned out, it loose the original feeling of the scene of the nature.

Therefore, I decided to leave it as it is.

Consider the environment of the shot, this is another great shot!!

Can you see the hazes feeling??

However, I arrange the flower at an angle. I do use a white tower to reflect more light to the dahlia. The green color reflections are due to the natural was coating on the petals itself.

I am surprise to found that the purple petals are very hairy or furry texture.

This is a great shot.
