I visited Sydney's Chinese garden recently. As it's in winter, trees lost a lot of leaves. This one is from the end of autumn. Full of leaves and sun coming through.

Before I turn on the lights and put my Kodak Carousel projector away, thought I’d show one more travel Pic from the 2011 archives.

 

For the younger generation, a slide projector is one of those

gadgets your grandpa used to pull out at the holidays, and force you to sit through a slide show : )

 

This is the Li River. An amazing area of China.

China town is a neighborhood in Manhattan, New York. From ethnical perspective, it's one of the oldest neighborhoods in New York city.

It's probably not as colorful as anybody would imagine a typical Chinese neighborhood to be. But, it definitely resembles a simple Chinese neighborhood with its shops and foods.

 

I took this picture from my walk on Manhattan Bridge a few days ago. I loved every bit of that visit.

Very end of autumn day.

I expected autumn colours but there wasn't much autumn here.

Air was cold and warm sunlight was really nice.

Plants

 

Physalis alkekengi is a distant relative of the new world P. peruviana. This species is native to Asia unlike the rest of Physalis that is native to the Americas. It is easily identifiable by the large, bright orange to red papery covering over its fruit, which resembles paper lanterns.

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

I could escape this feeling, with my China girl

I feel a wreck without my, little China girl

I hear her heart beating, loud as thunder

Saw they stars crashing

I'm a mess without my, little China girl

Wake up mornings where's my, little China girl

I hear her heart's beating, loud as thunder

Saw they stars crashing down

I feel a-tragic like I'm Marlon Brando

When I look at my China girl

I could pretend that nothing really meant too much

When I look at my China girl

I stumble into town just like a sacred cow

Visions of swastikas in my head

Plans for everyone

It's in the whites of my eyes

My little China girl

You shouldn't mess with me

I'll ruin everything you are

You know, I'll give you television

I'll give you eyes of blue

I'll give you men's who want to rule the world

And when I get excited

My little China girl says

Oh baby, just you shut your mouth

She says, sh-sh-shhh

She says, sh-sh-shhh

She says

She says

And when I get excited

My little China girl says

Oh baby, just you shut your mouth

And when I get excited

My little China girl says

Oh baby, just you shut your mouth

She says, sh-sh-shhh

She says

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

Oh, oh, oh, little China girl

First about the watch:

This is a vintage (mid 1970ties) Chinese wrist watch Seagull (海鸥) ST5-D (29J automatic movement). It came with original manual and original bracelet, but shown here on a steel mesh bracelet.

Nice silver pie pan dial.

The ST5-D was the first indigenous Chinese automatic movement, made by the Tianjin Watch Factory (天津手表厂).

 

That pocket dictionary used as a prop is not too good, but it has the character 表 at the right place for the photo.

 

Now for your Chinese lesson:

The character 表 biǎo has many meanings, more than given in that dictionary, most usage in a technical context is for anything with a dial. Depending what other characters it is combined with one gets the actual meaning.

 

Examples:

表带 biǎo dài watchband

手表 shǒubiǎo wristwatch

钟表 zhōngbiǎo clock

压力表 yālì biǎo pressure gauge

高度表 gāodù biǎo altimeter

Nothing is what it seems in China..... The Bat is a shadow,of course. Chinese scientists claim that corona is coming from wild Bats.

The Chinese name of this rarely seen melodious laughing thrush means "painted eyebrow"

I found a beauty in old, dry pods of Chinese lantern plants. The colour faded, the leaves broke, but there is still so much beauty in them.

They are at least 3 years old. I was about to throw them out.

Chinese geese are considered by many to be the most graceful and beautiful member of the goose family. They are elegant and dignified on both land and water. Sometimes referred to as "Swan Geese" because of their long and graceful necks, they, in fact, descend from the wild swan goose native to Asia.

 

Many thanks to people who view or comment on my photos.

Wikipedia: The Chinese pond heron (Ardeola bacchus) is an East Asian freshwater bird of the heron family, (Ardeidae). It is one of six species of birds known as "pond herons" (genus Ardeola). It is parapatric (or nearly so) with the Indian pond heron (A. grayii) to the west and the Javan pond heron (A. speciosa) to the south, and these three are presumed to form a superspecies.
