The Eyes of Cerok Tokun

I was told I can find myself in the eyes if snapping without flash, so I zoom, I continue to zoom in, unfortunately I find myself not being reflected.

Nature is mysterious; the books of nature are now stacked as tall as Cerok Tokun, so much so that I have not, and shall not read her wholly.

She must have actually kept her eyes on me every moment when I am at Cerok Tokun. This is a new found secret that I would like to share with you.

If you visit nature one day, try not to use flash, tell me then whether you are trapped inside her eyes. Tell me how you feel. Tell me how our world is looking from inside out.

We have then only finished reading one page of the first book.

I think you are not reflected because you are magical and invisible.

It is a dragon hanging up side down.

When i was in NTU, when I was the unpaid gardener, I was working among my plants and a very jade green "dragon" came to supervise me. A friend told me, don't let it bite me, otherwise, I walk 7 steps, then I die.

I never use a flash, but I always see nature's eyes looking at me. There are so many of them. Nature is always watching.

You may of missed your reflection while she winked at you? I used to always be late for dinner when I was young- outside..I took my time. When I grew up- I rushed..now I try to take the time to listen- nice thoughts and photos. Thanks so much for the uplifting B Day wishes! Today I had to finish unpacking and clean things up (whew) so I only heard clanging of pans and dishes. Have a wonderful day:)

After a night with heavy dews, when the sun first comes up, there will be thousands of sparkling eyes, beaming with hope and only nature lovers can see them and appear in their eyes..........

CH said...

The eyes look very mysterious to me.

eyes are the windows of the soul...
through the eyes of nature you see the soul of the world which is turned upside down by the humans...

If you cannot see yourself in their eyes, you must have escaped their traps. But, if they can't see you, are you really there?

RNSANE said...

You can be sure that the eyes of Cerok Tokun are watching you.

I am sure that you probably don't need a flash. Your camera seems to be VERY versatile and capable of immeasurable range so that you can capture incredible photographs with any assisted lighting.

ruthi said...

I am amazed at how you see things around you. You see beauty in simple things and appreciate them like a hidden treasure that you stumbled upon.

Harumi said...

Beautiful interpretation. Those watchful eyes.. I wonder if the world they see looks the same as us or not.
