Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Earth

This week, the challenge is the Chinese Element of Earth.

Earth/Harvest: Clay, Rock, Dust, Sand, Mud, Crystal, Powder, Shadow, Space, Darkness, Gravity, Bone, Silicon

I took this picture in front of my office several days ago. After office hour, I grabbed my iPad and took some pics of the statue. The statue is called Patung Pemuda Membangun (Young Man Develops (the country)). It was built to reward young male and female who contributes in the country development. It holds fire shield that never die to describe the spirit of developing the country (hopefully) would never die. The statue was made from rock, thus match with the topic of the last challenge in the Chinese Element series.

In the second picture I put the whole scenery of the statue with water fountain, electric poles, fire on top of the statue, and the trees behind. The pic shows all of the Chinese Elements.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wood

This week’s Fun Photo Challenge theme is Wood. I took the capture few days ago in a train station when I was on the way to my office. I work 5 days a week in an area full of concretes from 7 am to 8 pm. It was rather difficult for me to hunt woods when the challenge came 🙂

I took the photo using my Blackberry Torch 2 and isolated the red-brown color from other colors using Lightroom.
