Harmony with the beasts

A little girl riding very happily on the backs of two beasts. To be able to master the beast of nature and to live in harmony is a fine art of adaptation by man to his environment.

Tribal Doc

A tribal doctor attending to his patient. The head of the doc is in the top centre, wearing a moustache and a black musketeer hat decorated with flowing frills. At his waist level laid three patients on a bench, two with heads on the right and one with head on the left and wearing a headdress.

There were two native faces below his right arms, close to his body, looking at the patients. They had a worried expression on their faces.

The photo is looking more like Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Carribean: )

Killing Fields

The killing fields of Kampuchea. The orange and red figures are the new lives that have survived the ordeal. They are existing alongside the skulls and skeletons of the tragic past. Life goes on, a new beginning.

For those who remember, the infamous Killing Fields and Khmer Rouge of Kampuchea where millions were killed by the children soldiers of the Pol Pot regime. What's left in the Killing Fields were stacks and stacks of skulls and bones. A new life has taken over kampuchea, thriving, while the memories and skulls of the Killing Fields, and pains, live on as part of Kampuchea's gruesome past of a political regime gone badly wrong.

Grotto Art

Cave paintings. Look carefully and you can find many figures of human images and beasts on the walls of the cave.

Eva, the original woman

The original first female? Who came first, Eve from the bible or Eva from Africa? The first female is likely to be African. Here she is, with her fig leaf and modesty covered. Ain't the kois clever?

The Cow

I could call this piece The Cow or The Chicken and The Cow. The images are not in the normal form but looking at them one cannot miss the chicken and also the cow. Some may see two cows and some may see many other things. Don't let your imagination runs wild.

The kois have a great sense of humour.

Big Fish

This is a defensive mechanism where small fishes grouped together to give the impression of size. Here the fishes took the shape of a big fish. No photoshop fiddling. The photograph was created naturally.

Global Warming - Temperature Rising

I managed to create a few pieces of these images showing fishes melting under high temperature in the deep of the ocean. I have enough for a set of 4.
