Today, and Tomorrow

My family took a bus, which we had not taken for years, from jetty to Kimberly Street for dinner before we walked to Esplanade to start countdown. It was New Year eve, and the temperature was high at that place, driving to there was not advisable.

Street scene from inside of a bus

We thought of a different new year, but the moon was revolving in the same manner, quietly in the dark sky, no matter it was 31st of December, 2009 or 1st of January, 2010.

The moment Jubilee Clock Tower struck twelve o'clock, the mynas started to scream and fly wild, not to celebrate new year, but were disturbed by the explosion sounds of the fireworks.

And then we started off 2010 with flying colours.

Will there be any difference between today and tomorrow? Or tomorrow will just be another continuity of today?

Happy New Year! Wonderful images from your part of the world. Yesterday we had a blue moon (2 full moons in 1 month) and you were lucky enough to "capture" it.

Diane AZ said...

Fantastic photos, I especially like the colors and abstract qualities in the first one. Seems every day must be a new day, just as we can't step in the same river twice. :)

Ginnymo said...

Ginnymo: May your world be colourful as well. Happy, happy and happy new year.

VanillaSeven: Same to you, my friend.

Happy New Year.

Every day does seem the same, but the memories of times, and years past make all the difference. We have those memories and experiences to make us wiser every new year. Happy New Year.
