I took these photos with my D200 @ 5:00 a.m. looking towards the south east... amazing! What a contrast with the palm trees and overhead power lines.

My Mom Is a Dragon

How cool is this title?!! I love this book. I went to our local library yesterday and found this sweet, little hardcover book written by Tricia Morrissey, called "My Mom Is A Dragon And My Dad Is A Boar." The calligraphy featured in this book are created by calligrapher and artist Kong Lee. The pictures and descriptions are  celestial and majestic, so perfect for introducing children,  (and adults) to Chinese traditions about the zodiac. (Twelve Lunar Animals)

Year of the Dragon (2012)

"Explosion and excitement follow the Dragon wherever she goes. With a hasty temper and shrewd confidence, she throws caution to the wind. The dragon is whimsical, wild and unstoppable. She pays no attention to mistakes, but blazes forward with mighty enthusiasm. Do not get in her way, but enjoy her from afar with wide open eyes."

  4. Loving your photo! You have a great eye for colour!

    And thanks for the heads up - I am trying to get some good Asian reads in my TBR!

  5. This looks like a lovely little book. I also love to learn about different cultures. I was born in the Year of the Rat which of course makes sense when your nickname is taken from another rodent. :)

    Love that fiery sky!

  6. Lovely sunrise photos. I rise early when I can because a sunrise is a gift that I give to myself and they're each different.


As always, so nice to hear from you!
