"The sharp knife of a short life

I've had just enough time..."

- "If I Die Young" The Band Perry

I see Beauty in many things. And like the ghosts that only speak to you if you notice them, they tell me wondrous tales. With my camera and my thoughts, I captured these as faithfully as I can to share with you. And by doing so, they gave me the reasons. And though the thousand reasons may not all be sweet and some indeed bitter; they are still reasons to live. Come to think about it, that is Life, isn't it?

No Photo, Yes Tomato.

I've had just enough time to...   shoot a "No Photos" sign

Taken in a Shanghai food exhibition :D

I said “no photo” 

You said “yes tomato” 
I said “no film” 
You said “yes firm” 
I wrote it in black & white 
You said its blue & black 
I said “its Chinese” 
You said “No Italian” 
I look at you 
You look back at me 
I smile sadly 
You smile back 
I put down my sign 
You put down your camera 

The world is alright

These are the celebrity chefs they asked us not to shoot, ain't you glad I did! :D


  1. Sometimes, I don’t understand the rationale behind things. Here was this company staging this big event to promote their products with a huge stage and celebrity chefs in the premier food exhibition in Shanghai. And they annoyed the people they tried to attract by having these poor guys walking up and down with the sign saying “no photos or films” in two languages. It made no sense. They have zero control of the situation. Why would anyone listen? But I do pity the guy holding up the sign with the resigned look. He cannot offend the customers and nobody is paying him any attention. I take this shot of him out of sympathy more than anything else and wish for him that he will leave this ignoble job and found something better in Life. My friend, I wish you well.

    Well we all feel the same as you Thou....
    As you read the news today our area took the headlines with a horrific massacre:-(
    I think we can never understand what drives a man to do such horrific act, killing one person you can say is a personal, killing innocent children is monstrous:-(
    Have a fun weekend my friend!
