Canopy of Leaves

First posted here.

Under the canopy of lush green leaves, we can find solace from the din of a chaotic urban decay. Here, pollution is not apparent. The songs of the birds are melodies that seem to clear the mind. The breeze that cools the warmth from the heat of the sun is a welcome relief. To rest under these trees is not just for the body but for the mind as well.

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer’s day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.” ~John Lubbock


Drive-by Photos

Drive-by seems misleading because I am not the one driving since I am on the passenger seat.

Anyway, here are a few photos from the different times we traveled to my home province:

There is a river here going to the sea, where we once stopped to wade in the water.

Fire trees line the road before (or after) toll fee booths.

Massive amounts of sand being mined but these have stopped now, thank goodness.

Rainy afternoon. There used to be a metal bridge here but now it’s gone, to make way for a wider bridge with concrete barriers.

On a fairly new bridge under a river bed that is not being dredged. Why not? so there is another reason to build an even newer bridge.

Greens in the Mall

One of the best feature of a mall for me would be pocket gardens where people can take a short respite from seeing other people, concrete walls and tiled floors:

We sure do need the soothing color of green, the sound of splashing water and the cool breeze blowing through the plants.
