Water World Wednesday

                                                       Welcome all to WATER WORLD WEDNESDAY
                                                 The second week of July how time flies so quick we are in the middle of 2012! It's our our Episode 16, year 1!

                                                                 How do we gauge poverty?

"However mean your life is, meet it and live it: do not shun it and call it hard names. Cultivate poverty like a garden herb, like sage. Do not trouble yourself much to get new things, whether clothes or friends. Things do not change, we change. Sell your clothes and keep your thoughts. " Henry David Thoreau



" The more you recognize and express gratitude for the things you have, the more things you will have to express gratitude for." ~ Zig Ziglar

Thanks Tina for joining!

Kim, USA said...

Hi Joy I appreciate it! I took it from our hometown in the Philippines. Sometimes if I complain I would think of the people who live here. ^_^

Mama Zen said...

Really cool shots!

Gemma Wiseman said...

Incredible photos! The first one is so humbling! Amazing that people can live in such conditions!

Twiggy said...

Amazing photos. So much detail, even though it seems to have been taken from a distance.
Thank you for making my day! I was really glad to hear that I was the winner of June. Wow!

Leovi said...

Beautiful pictures, I like to live in a place as beautiful as this. But a few days, I do not trust those houses in equilibrium.

bettyl said...

Unique and interesting buildings. Awesome.

Rajesh said...

Wonderful images.

chubskulit said...

HI ate, thanks for inviting me. Joined (hometown)..

Luna Miranda said...

i love the Thoreau quote. a friend once told me that poverty is subjective--a millionaire can feel poor while a man living in one of these huts feels rich. when we want less, we are rich with just a little...so indeed, less is more.:p

Jane said...

Great shots Kim, interesting place.

lina@happy family said...

Poverty is still a big issue here, in my country.
Great shots, Kim.

January said...

I like the quote Ate Kim. I've seen a lot of houses like this here in our country. :(

NixBlog said...

Great shots, Kim. Riches don't always bring happiness...

Thanks for hosting.

Anni said...

I love the Thoreau Quote!!!!

Personally, these photos you've shared tells me that my life is nothing like what they live....and that I have nothing to complain about tho I do.

Lucie Cermanova said...

Very interesting images, great shots. Have a nice day.

Kim, USA said...

I agree Luna. So many I have known who have so much money and material wealth are still looking for something to fill the emptiness in there heart. They can't even sleep well at night while those who live this way had experience the most awesome beauty rest! For me, I'll be happy for what I have now and be thankful. But I am guilty sometimes because I complain a lot hehehehe. ^_^

Kim, USA said...

You are right. You are not alone in complaining I too complain and I feel guilty sometimes. ^_^

lina@happy family said...

Was here again, Kim.
To answer your question: we call it ikan mas (gold fish)here. I think it's commonly called carp fish.

Kim, USA said...

Hi Lina, different names same fish. Thanks for the info! ^_^

HoodPhoto said...

Thanks so much for your Like and invite to this meme, Kim!

HOOTIN ANNI said...

...by the way Kim....I've been meaning to put this in a comment for you, and keep forgetting. After I read your comment you left for me on my birding blog, I just had to come back and make sure I added this...

I have been wanting to say to you, 'congrats on the 10 pound weight loss!!!!"

...and I know just where you lost it....it came directly to ME!

BellaVida Letty said...

I'd love to visit this place and sit for awhile.

shutterbuggbitten said...

Those are amazing shots. Truly we do put way too much emphasis on material goods.

CailinMarie said...

Excellent quote and the shots meet it well! I believe sharing can drive away the poverty and bring equality. Wish I could join the water Wednesday and I see it in other blogs too.

Hugs
Shilpa
