Green Raw ....! Fresh, relaxing... after rain! I would like to have a green dress like that ...!Simona

And I would ask you for a dance, and you could teach me some dynamic latino movements and rhythm, dear Simona!

And when I needed a rest I would sit and applaud while you went on dancing for you would look stunning in Kape Green! Perhaps, then it may be droplets of champagne that are wetting your glorious gown!

_I love the image of a dance with you even if I would be wearing a simple dress, green and without shoes on the beach ... or we be in a beautiful dance hall with the most elegant emerald-green dress and the shoes dance!

Sometimes you can live the most beautiful moments only dream, listening to music what you want, dear Ian!

Let the music play and keep the dream alive, Simona!

Yes, Ian! Let's dance ... floating above the water, the ocean two of us! I hear the music already.... Simona

I like this photo. The green color is attractive.

Cheers, Jeff

And this is what I meant when I said that rain is good for close-up photography. The camera was actually being protected from the rain by being under this large kape leaf. Glad you appreciate the colour, Jeff.

You forgot to bring your umbrella? You planned to do so. Walking under the rain is romantic occasionally.

I thought it is a kind of vegetable leaf. It is just after wash. Water droplet remains on it. You are preparing salad. :) :) :) :)

These leaves of the Kape are the best umbrellas around. They are better than banana leaves for the don't tear as easily. Thanks for your comments, Jeff, for sometimes I forget to interpret the image the way others might.

You saw salad being prepared; Simona saw a wonderful dress fabric; and I saw an opportunity to shelter from the rain.

I like the lotus leaf. We put sticky rice, pork, dried scallop, dried shrimp, chicken meat, salty egg yolk on lotus leaf. After wraped into a pyramid shape, it is steamed for a while. The rice are full of scent from lotus leaf. It taste very good. Have you tried it in Hong Kong.

Same subject. Eat again :) :)

Cheers, Jeff

Sure have, Jeff. Many times. Cantonese cuisine is a bit of a favourite with me.

I did not know Kape leaf are edible, Ian! I love salad so I amusa idea to have a dress that can eat! If raining can use the leaves as the umbrella! And if the sun - sunshade! :)Simona
