“流水 Water Flow” / 寧 Serenity / SML.20130326.7D.36470.C23.BW

水 Water is an important element in 風水 Feng Shui—if you know Chinese, you would know that the two characters 風 Feng means wind, and 水 Shui means water.

 

Water is important because it flows. In Cantonese, the character is synonymous with money. And money should always be flowing, thus at the garden downstairs at 聽濤雅苑 Vista Paradiso, where I live, water flows continuously on many manmade falls.

 

I took my tripod with me to do some panorama in the neighborhood. On my way back I passed by the garden and took some photos. It is rainy today so even though I did not have an ND filter, I was able to photograph this under a long exposure (5 second to be exact, but enough to render water is silk).
