From thatched huts to skyscrapers, from wagons to cars, from bread to superb cuisine, society has been developing nonstop. Is it really for the best though? As the ravenous pursuit for wealth and fame becomes widespread, perhaps the memory of rural life is what we should cherish the most.

Natural illusions are beauties of art. The tree makes a reflection on the smooth surface of the lake while the reflection emphasizes the resistance of the tree. The subject and it’s mirror–one and forever.

Winter has perhaps the most unique aesthetic of the seasons. Chilly wind and still air mingle, suspended in space. The snow-capped subjects cut in sharp relief against other  colored scenery. Cold and warm, white and black: winter.

Who says that zoning out is a waste of time? There are few things more relaxing than staring blankly at the floor when you feel tired or bored. At that moment, there is only you in the world–no others, no noise and the world is still. You can dream freely and without interruption.

The river washes little stones and soil away. The rain washes dry heat and dust. Prayer cleanses the soul, but pain cleanses the body. Can we find a way to wash away the filth in our hearts and purify our souls?
