Mar 09, 2015 – [Monday] The Places I Called Home: Roofs of Bordeaux

March 9, 2015 § 2 Comments

Bordeaux, France, taken on July 27, 2013

I just realized that the “The Places I Called Home” entries that I’ve posted so far almost follow the exact chronological order of the cities that I’ve called home, with the exception of THIS post (the order being: Guangzhou, Toronto, Waterloo, Hsinchu, South Bend, Bordeaux, Louvain-la-Neuve, and Glasgow). It was pure coincidence and unfortunately Bordeaux is “out of place”. For the next cycle, perhaps I will fix that 😛 Anyway, the roofs of the city of Bordeaux, seen from the top of St. Michel, take on various heights and orders and conformations and structures, giving them an unexpected sense of aesthetics. How I miss this city 😦

Jan 24, 2015 – [Saturday] Letters of the Alphabet: A(ntennas)

Burano (Venice), Italy, taken on December 15, 2013

I still remember very clearly the antennas stretching from the roofs of the colourful houses on Burano island, which I visited with my dad as a side trip from Venice. My dad commented, “These are very reminiscent of the ‘fish bone antennas’ in my childhood.” I think the term “fish bone antennas” must have been what made such an impression on me. You can’t deny the ingenuity of the name – they did look perfectly like the skeleton of a fish!

November 03, 2014 – Tenement

If I am not mistaken, these blocks of houses and apartments are called “tenements” and they are all around Glagow’s residential areas. Hopefully I find lodging soon…

February 13, 2014 – Scarborough moon

The moon has appeared quite a few times in PW, but not yet in Scarborough. On the night before the Chinese Lantern Festival, it seems to want to outshine the lanterns and I think it just might have achieved its goal 😉
