ABC Wednesday #31:

Playing ABC Wednesday on my 31st week now and this would be my first A. For my initial A, I share shots of anthurium that grows inside my living room :). My mother back in our days of living in the tropics grew anthuriums. She continues her love affair with them. So when she spotted a little anthurium pot in the nursery she immediately purchased it. The little plant has grown more than what I believe is expected of it, being an indoor plant and all.

One evening, it called out to me from the darkness of the living room. With very little light from the outside coming in through the thin curtains of the living room, I managed to take these shots. All are SOOC and all are from archives. The plant thrives until now.

Photo Hunt #199: City Where You Live/Celebrate

IMG_0627

I live in a small suburban town outside of San Francisco. In my town many small parks are scattered in different neighborhoods. The biggest of those is this one, which abuts the street where I live. This is a popular park for families to bring their toddlers to play in the grass or in the swings and also to feed the ducks and birds. Many walk and bike and play soccer or picnick and others also celebrate birthdays and other occasions here. Some people do yoga here too and once a year there is a cultural fair with arts and crafts and foods from different countries. The domed structure is also a favorite spot for wedding pictures.

Spotted this sign on a car next to me in the parking lot. I don’t understand what it advertises. Does it recreate a crime scene so CSI can solve the case? And about the word “advance”? Pretty puzzling to me 🙂

Happy happy New Year fellow bloggers. We had a successful year sharing SIGNS in 2012. May it continue to inspire us to hunt for more SIGNS this 2013. Cheers!

First off, pardon the blurry image. I was trying to be covert in performing the task of photographing this sign/label on a frozen duck at an Asian grocery store. Somehow, I felt that they weren’t too friendly with people bringing camera inside the grocery store and shooting at random merchandise so I was shooting and running without much attention to the quality of the image.

Anyway, what struck me about this label is the word BUDDHIST. Now we don’t just see halal meats (for the Muslims) and koshers (for the Jews), now we also have specific meats for Buddhists? Just curious!
