Our Visit to the Family Home

This is the carp pond in my aunt’s community. As you can see by the purple smears for lily pads, my A75 was a bit moody at that point. Though in this shot it kind of came out interesting (to me anyway).

Shao Hei got a significant haircut, which made him look even smaller, and must have been much more comfortable in the heat.

The pond by my grandfather’s house apparently has been frequented by a hungry crane lately, who has gobbled up all the fish and the carp too big for it to gobble, it managed to flip out onto the yard.

In the yard, the longyen tree was beginning to bear ripe fruit (the way to see if they’re ripe is to pick them off the tree and eat them). We hunted mosquitoes with the electrified tennis rackets, which can make a mosquito caught in the cross-hairs sizzle. And my visiting cousin from NJ gave me a haircut with an old set of barber’s scissors I found in the storage area. (No worries, Mom, I just got the trim you wanted to give me but didn’t have time to–nothing drastic this time.) I sat out in the yard, and we brushed the clippings into the gutter on the edge of the porch– perhaps a bird will use it for its nest. My uncles had fun photographing the process.
