浮罗山背 Balik Pulau


浮罗山背之名,让人联想到宁静的,适合隐士居住的地方。浮罗是岛屿的意思,这里是槟城岛上山峦的背部,山峦正好将喧哗的城市隔开,让喜好大自然的朋友们有个好去处。

一行人来到浮罗山背的宝盛榴莲园,尽享各品种的美味榴莲,小孩则乐于嬉水泳池中。夜晚烧烤会之后,在蝉鸣声中入睡。一觉醒来,晨运于山中呼吸新鲜空气拾榴莲,把城市生活中累积起来的胆固醇与压力消解掉,当然也不忘记摄影一番,把浮罗山背上的花草树木拍下记录在云端。

以下是浮罗山背榴莲园里所拍到的作品,愿与各位分享。



I enjoy coming to this place called Balik Pulau very much. We came here mainly for its quality durians even though Balik Pulau has much more to offer its nature loving visitors than durians. 

Bao Sheng Durian Farm is a place that you should not miss if you come to Balik Pulau. It offers lots of durians with different tastes and provides comfortable accommodation with swimming pool attached.

Besides eating lots of durian and walking around looking for durian in the durian farm, I managed to take some photos of this place for sharing with everyone who may like to know more about this wonderful place.

面纱(The Veil)


炎热的午后,她轻轻地来到院子里,显得异常孤单。
我正玩着相机,随即被这不请自来的访客吸引,其披在身上的纱布,更是精致至极,不像出自人间工匠之手。

我开始摄影,她也不甚避忌,只稍微含羞以纱布半遮俏脸,任我为所欲拍。
拍毕,她挥挥衣袖离去,不留半点曾经到来的痕迹。

留下的,唯独这张“面纱”。。。。
On this hot afternoon, I was running out of subject to shoot.

Out of a sudden, a dragonfly landed on a plant in my little garden. I was attracted by its translucent wings and the interesting patterns on the wings. I tried out a few shots to make the wings the main subject but failed to capture them satisfactorily.
Instead, this shot of the translucent wing half covering the face of the dragonfly like a veil of a woman became my shot of the day.

Luck sometimes does play a role in getting a good shot.
I shall try again on a close-up shot of the translucent wing the next time I come across the dragonfly…
