Wet

It was a wet weekend during which I continued with my travel. I was like a snail, carried along no shell but a backpack, moving slowly and leaving a trail behind. A trail that is visible to you in the blogosphere.

It was wet all over the places. Everything looked clean and clear after the wash out, but someone might perceive it differently. The wooden hammocks were left idle.

It was a little different for me as well as I shifted my search to something that looked very ordinary and nothing special to usual me.

And I took the picture of a leaf that was found lying on my trail. I could see the days the leaf was with the worms or bugs. I could see the water droplets which served no more purpose to the veins that originally supposed to transport water throughout the leaf, besides as a structural support. Somehow it served its final task to decorate my picture of the leaf.

My wonder started from here, and it continued.

I seldom value leafs. I donno y.

Mei Teng said...

Wooden hammock?! Wow..so one can take a rest when you're tired out from hitting the trail. Good idea.

What's with the black spots on the leaf? It looked like ink spots.

i would love to take a rest in the wooden hammock, so nice to gaze up the sky on that :)

the leaves has dark spots, like Mei, they look like ink to me too. some animal deposits?

Harumi said...

Wow.. a wooden hammock..! Never seen a one before. What a perfect way to catch your breath and enjoy nature at the same time.

The best about the leaf are its network of veins they almost resemble a fine cobweb.. sprinkled with micro pearls.. and inkblots and fungi motifs.. =D

Kirigalpoththa>> It rained a few days back coupled with strong wind, many trees were uprooted everywhere.

Icy BC>> It looks nice but not really comfortable to be used. Haha...

Willie>> You are just another man who values other. That's it.

Mei Teng>> Besides hammock, we have some equipments up here for a workout. The black spots are actually the holes created by either the worms or some bugs.

betchai>> These are artworks by some worms or bugs, natural arts.

Harumi>> I am thinking of taking pictures and narrated by you, is it a good idea?

Mike>> Is your place affected by haze as well? The monsson rain helps to clean up the haze for a couple of days only.

I hadn't heard of wooden hammocks. I think I'd want a cushion!
 
I can only imagine the rush of jungle growth after a good soaking rain like that.

That hammock is making me dreary eyed - time for a nap :)

Pacey said...

That's a very inviting hammock, what different styles we have for this hammock. Great post rain. Love reading your wanderings.

After reading this, I now want to take a walk in the rain. It's a beautiful day here, but you make the rain seem so good.

michael said...

Hi there! You have a very nice posts! I'm happy to discover your site!

Harumi said...

Nope.. it's not a good idea at all.. lol Cuz your narration is way more interesting and vivid than my feedback. ^__^

Heather Dugan>> I can agree with you on "the rush of jungle growth after a good soaking rain like that", these included mushrooms, mosses etc. If you love them, then they are the wonder.

Poetic Shutterbug>> Good nite by then, or not, you are going for a nap...

Pacey>> A little bit of marketing: this is what we called delighting customers. lol.

Ratty>> rain -> wet -> clean -> clear -> misty -> mysterous and rush of jungle growth = wonder. This is what I want. So enjoy yourself.

Michael>> welcome abroad.

Harumi>> hahaha. I would say, instead of hehehe.

Cate said...

wooden hammocks sound a little...hard and properly slippery. The leaf's structure looks beautiful, I like how it's full of holes a form of nature's beauty.

Harumi said...

hehe.. but I'd say it still wouldn't work. =D

Ana said...

Beautiful capture. Water always stills every part of nature, as it encaptures every present space. I love the picture of the hammock, as it encompasses this, and your story. :)
