The Torch Relay
“Did you see the torch?”
“No, the torch carried by the runner yesterday.”
“The tick with fire burning at the end?”
“Yes, the runners were on their way to Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.”
“There’re 337 competitors from my country Britain.”
“Yes, 522 from the United States. The Torch Relay began in New York City and ended in Los Angeles, traversing 33 states. There were 3,636 runners passing on, carried the torch on foot for over 9,320 miles. Los Angeles will host the Summer Olympics for the third time in 2028, 44 years from now.”
“I’ll be here.”
The cold winter is here. Even though it doesn’t have snow here, but the temperature drops. When we turn on the heat, upstairs is warm and downstairs is still cold. We enjoy to have fire in our fireplace downstairs. I took photos of the burning logs with the flames dancing. Then I played with Prisma with the same photos to get different effects. I only chose the conservative options. Here they are.
Tuesday Photo Challenge – Fire
Forest fire is a problem in California, especially when the weather temperature gets up to three digits. Signs of “No Camp Fire” are displayed in National Parks. A little spark could ignite and causes a major forest fire.
The forest fire and smoke reminds me of the animation movie “Bambi” that I watched with my daughter. she was little. It was the first movie she saw about death, when Bambi’s mother was burned by the forest fire. My daughter was saddened by the story.
Forest fire is devastating to the nature, the animals, and human being.
