Artistic Photographs of Macau
by Luk Lei
(Luk says: "These next 5 are the artistic shots I am currently developing. They are double exposure shots that I have designed to contrast and envelope places and sights in Macau.")
City Lights - This double exposure is the combination of lanterns in Senado Square and the Monkey King display, which appears to be floating away on a cloud. This combines local tradition with it's gaudy and wonderful display.
Nature Engulfs - In a city like Macau where population density is very high and homes are stacked one on the other, Getting any nature is nearly a miracle to observe. This large tree proved to be the best subject to engulf the fog ridden city.
Nature Gives - Another Urban garden double exposure. This time a palm tree is filling the content of a historical structure.
This combines 2 common public services in Macau - The bus and the multitude of small library's found through out Macau. While great services do exhist here, sometimes it can be lonely packed inside these locations.
Greetings, Friends! I hope you enjoy the second series of photos by Luk Lei. I really enjoyed the artistry in the photos. If you did not see Sherry's interview of Luk, be sure to look back at last Monday's article in which he was featured!
This past week for Midweek Motif Susan's prompt was 'bullying,' and there were lots of good poems shared in response to this serious, but very timely, topic. Take a look! Rosemary's feature for "The Living Dead" was the poem "There Will be No Peace" by W.H. Auden. There was an interesting story behind that poem. Do check back if you haven't read it.
This Monday Sherry has a wonderful chat with one of the most loyal participants here at Poets United. None other than Jae Rose (And Alice too!). It is a chat you don't want to miss.
Wednesday Susan's prompt for Midweek Motif is "Picnic." Yes, it is beginning to be that time of year, isn't it?
Well, with no further delay, let's share poetry. Link your one poem below. Stop in to comments and say hello; and read some poetry! It is important to visit other poets, as that is an integral part of our community. See you all on the trail.

Luk Lei, interesting concept! the 4th picture looks like a Transformer. :)
Lol, yeah it really transposed nicely when I took the second shot. But now I'm never going to look at that building the same way, autobot or decepticon, who knows.Delete
Such interesting photos! My fave are the shimmering orange lanterns. Wonderful shots! I'm looking forward to prowling through the Pantry this Sunday morning.ReplyDelete

Sanaa and Bekkie, for some unknown reason, I have left several comments at each of your sites that is not posting. Bekkie, only a testing comment went through but not the others. Sigh. I blame Windows 10, new on my system and not user friendly. I did try hard.ReplyDelete
Are not posting.Delete
Glad to be back!ReplyDelete
So sorry for not reading you all, as I have been ill and now feeling better. I look forward to reading and posting again. Thank you for all my followers that have written to me. Especially those that have written to me without having me to write and visit their posts.
Glad you are feeling better, ZQ! Always good to see your work.Delete
Awesome photographs! The orange lanterns are pure magic! Thanks for hosting at the Pantry, once again, Mary. Looking forward to making the rounds this afternoon and tomorrow!ReplyDelete
