I always love black and white photos, even though they make me feel not only peaceful but also kind of thoughtful and a little bit sad at the same time.

As a color-lover, I enjoy colorful things, bright moments, really can’t stand “black and white” day. I used to try very hard to make people around me happy whenever they were blue, or to cheer me up every time I was down, but now I do feel that sorrow is just like happiness or those other things such as luck – bad luck, peace – chaos …we need them all , to make this life a life ^ – ^

If only I could fly like you..

hold your memories dearly..

can you feel life ^ ^ ?

can you feel life ^ ^ ?

Like a bar of dark chocolate – bitter but sweet, like the song of a heavy rain – lonely but peaceful, like a painting which can’t be perfect without some dark colors, now to me, life is that simple – as long as we can find happiness right in the dark moments, then everything will be alright ,yah,  somehow ^ – ^

  1. Very beautiful words…I think this is one of your best posts, because the words alone make it wonderful. As I am in China right now, I cannot download the picture…and cannot access any WordPress site, so I will have another surprise & take on this post when I return to Hong Kong. Your feelings about B&W photos is perfect, as I also fee this way: peaceful and introspective, but also a little sad. Take care, and have a colorful week. Cheers, Randy

          • 🙂 Always nice to hear from you. It was a good trip, but I leave again on Thursday to China & the DPRK for three weeks – so more silence from me in June. Hot soya milk and grilled yam…mmmm, sounds delicious! Happy that the rain has passed, Hong Kong has been very nice although rain may return later this week. Take care and enjoy your week!

    • àh,yin thích “cuốn rau ăn kèm” dưới dạng 1 bài viết ngắn hơn là chỉ share những tấm hình 1 cách đơn thuần (cỡ nào cũng phải ráng chen vài hàng suy nghĩ mang tính tự kỷ vô mới chịu được 😛 ) !

  2. thích note này của chị. còn phần hình ảnh, cá nhân em thấy một số tấm, nếu tiết chế phần màu cho bớt tương phản 1 chút thì sẽ đẹp hơn rất nhiều. Em thích hình con mèo, lọ hoa cúc (?) và cây me đang vương lên, màu tương phản nhưng lại rất hài hòa. 😀

    • ^ – ^ Cảm ơn em đã ghé vườn nha, và những lời nhận xét rất chân thành của em nữa! Chị giữ lại màu gốc của “nhân vật chính” không đó em, không những không chỉnh thêm contrast mà có vài tấm chị còn cố tình làm mờ đi , phủ 1 lớp vàng nhạt lên , chắc vì màu nóng nên trên nền đen trắng cảm giác hơi gắt , để chị cố gắng khắc phục ha, thanks em nhiều nhiều 🙂 !

      p/s: lọ đó là hoa cúc xanh ah em ^ ^ đúng ùi ! Còn mấy em cây nhỏ nhỏ hình như không phải cây me , tại chị thấy thân cây đỏ chóe àh, cũng không biết từ phương trời nào bay tới vườn ở nữa , hehe!

  3. Beautiful. I love how you put color in the black and white pics…just like your words spoke of bringing color to people’s lives!!

    • ^ ^ this is a very sweet comment,thanks for yout kindness, my dear friend!

  4. wonderful pictures and some great words. I love your colourkeys, very impressive. Interesting for me …. your opinion about B/W. I feel B/W often is more dramatic.
