Phalaenopsis White Orchid

In the past sprint-summer, our two pots of orchids grew very well. There were so many blossoms that I lost count. But I was able to photograph different shoots that had single, two, three and four blossoms. They are truly beautiful. It’s really joyful to look at them every day.

Neighborhood Park

On a Saturday afternoon in October, after having late lunch at a get-together party, all friends decided to go out for a walk in the neighborhood park. Half an hour later, it started raining. I was only able to snap a few pictures of the nature.

Everything has at least two sides

‘Tis the season again. These flowers can be spotted everywhere all over the world, especially in Europe, Asia, and the Americas. So it’s not hard to find some in your neighborhood. This morning I got up a bit earlier than usual, rushed out for shooting even before brushing my teeth, ’cause I didn’t want to cause attraction from suspicious minds. Of course, if you do want to photograph on someone’s lawn, you’d better ask for permissions first, so that no one will call the police. I chose to take these pictures in a public sharing, unattended area. No one would ever mind.

Hallstatt

Hallstätter See

Before continuing to the west in our Austrian tour, we took a detour south east to this charming little town. As there is no direct train from Salzburg, we needed to travel east to Attnang Puchheim, then hopped onto another train south to Hallstatt station.

Since the very first time we set foot on European soil and visited various cities in Germany in 2009, we felt in love with the railway system in Europe. It’s just so convenient. You can reach almost all areas in the region, and there are multiple schedules to fit in your itinerary. In comparison, the railway systems in US and Canada is not so broadly available. One would argue that North America is not so crowded and people can have their own vehicles – parking space is comparatively more available, and since they have cars, might as well drive them between cities. But driving is no comparison to being able to relax for a couple of hours, enjoy the country sights, read a book or two, have a nice long conversation with your company or maybe just someone you get to know on the train, without being distressed by the traffics, road and weather conditions, or exhaustion which could induce accidents.

Salzburg: City of Mozart

This is the second time we went to Salzburg in 13 months, as mentioned previously. It’s one of the major cities of Austria and I think many people has been there as it’s also a popular place for tourists. It’s not large – size-wise. But it’s surely a beautiful city and we were just awed by the Austrian culture.

The Salzach River runs through the city and divides it by two. The Old Town lies on the west side of the river, where a monastery and bishopric were founded in 700 A.D. The city and the river got their name from early residents who earned their living in the region’s salt mines.

Small Austrian Towns on Danube River (I)

(I actually prefer using the German word Donau than the English translation Danube. Even though I did look it up, I totally don’t get it how it got translated that way in the first place. To me, it just pronounces in a strange way. Annnnyway …)

Donau is the second longest river in Europe. It originates from Black Forest in Germany, flows through Germany, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Croatia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Moldova, Ukraine and Romania and ends into the Black Sea, total 2,872 km.

Flowers by David

Our friend, David, is an experienced photographer. He took lots of landscape pictures on his trips to northern and western China, and most of the pictures are stunning. He’s also an enthusiast in photography in sense of the gears he owns, Canon 5D Mark II and 7D, a few prime lens including 35mm, 135mm and also a tele 400mm. He still uses a Nikon film camera occasionally. He always seduces me to move to full frame bodies. Tempted, but I’m not used to the weight of those big guys and they could be overkill for vacation travels.
