Dancing willow

It surprises me that willow leaves are still green/yellowish in this gusty chilled November. I'm glad to catch this windy look of the plant. I try to search a good name for this post, find some "weeping" names in quite a few places. Although I understand the gentle sorrow of that "weeping", just don't like the upset part of it. "Dancing" is more like it...

Also like to share an interesting fact. There is an ancient Chinese proverb describing this very well: "树欲静而风不止". It means that, the tree wants to stay still, but the wind just doesn't allow it. It's kind of feeling of "zen", "tao", "yinyang", you know what I meant.


Modern Sculpture at Downtown Toronto

This metal sculpture is just amazing! It's abstracted (dinosaur? elephant? giraffe?)  but does convey some senses on power, agility and dignity. I added some time lapse (1 second) to give it more speed feeling...
