  1. Karen Duan says:

    I like the pictures of bird-singing contest and the hiden moon.I love both because of the distinct feeling the two show me.
    The bird-singing contest gives me a sense of peaceful and conventional. I like the scene that the old man looking up at the bird cages with attention. While human being kill animals including birds furiously, it is time for people to respect other living things.
    The style of Hiden Moon is what I love most. It describes a peaceful, quiet night without any breeze, but I feel there must be something mysterious as well hiden in dark.
