Photo Adventures with Curiosity and Learning

November 20, 2009: Bintan Agro Beach Lotus pond

How I got there.

The Friday ferry was booked - so I took the Thursday evening ferry - arriving about 9pm. Since there was little light, no photos from Nov 19 - but the morning of Nov 20 (Friday) was amazing. Mr Tjiagus has planted the pond near reception with lotus plants - something near and dear to my heart. Two years ago - there was a small lotus pond near the fence that disappeared for new construction and with the missing pond - was my missing these lovely plants and the insects that zoom in and out. Now they are back. Here is a blue lotus

And a cubist rendition of the flower. Wonder what this would look like if printed on canvas?
