Tea from China

Yesterday I received a Pu-erh tea cake from Yunnan province in China. Pu-erh (普洱) is one of my favorite tea areas and this tea improves in taste over the years. That’s why the tea is commonly labeled with the year and region.

The way the tea is packaged is very esthetic.

The Moon today is in a Waxing Gibbous phase.

Clean Up Crew

A member of the aquarium clean up crew at work. It’s a Malaysian trumpet snail. They do a good job of keeping the tank clean, but you have to keep an eye on the population as they reproduce at a fast pace. 🙂

Betta Fish

Recently someone wanted to get rid of a Betta fish and since nobody wanted it, I had to save the little fellow’s life. After I took him in, I upgraded his home to a bigger aquarium that gives him more room to swim and be happy.

He’s quite the smart guy and didn’t mind showing himself off when I was taking pictures.

Old Skies

Taking pictures of clouds is something I’ve been doing for a very long time. The 3 shots below were taken in 2002, with the Sony Cyber Shot DSC-F707.
