Base of a decorative vessel with a stem. I chanced upon this while roaming around the Goa Gajah temple, Bali. Just look at the patterns on it!

Light and Translucency
A lovely flower causes eye-catching play of light and shadow without even realizing it!­čÖé I think it’s the red that makes the effect striking.

Scarecrow nostalgia

Ready for Halloween

What’s a scarecrow nostalgic for? Its hayday, of course!

Okay, I made up the lame pun in the picture’s caption, but the scarecrow doll here certainly seems nostalgic, doesn’t it?

Halloween month starts tomorrow, and I’m reminded of a road trip along southwest USA that I went on with some friends six years ago this time. We stopped at a pumpkin patch and I, of course, clicked photos of pumpkins and little scarecrow dolls.

Row, row your boat…

… gently down the stream… watching the sky and the trees and the water move lazily past you…

If only I could enjoy this every day!
