Lights out

20180602-01lidoold school

Bye, bye Lido Multiplex.  Opened for operations since 1968, this standalone cinema turned out the lights for the last time on 31 May 2018.  The movie theater played a pivotal role during my teen-age years for I probably had my first movie dates there.  For a certain generation, it was meeting spots for more than just a movie and popcorn.  Many tutoring schools and educational establishments were in the area, so it became the hub for adolescent trends and fashions.  If you want the latest in-things, you can find it at shops behind the theaters.  Now the lights is off and the marque is left blank,  . . .so bye, bye Lido, thanks for the memories.

Half Light

Moon river, wider than a mile
I’m crossing you in style some day
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you’re going, I’m going your way

Half-Light

I’d been photography the full moon for many months now.  And also hand held.  One day I’ll make a series of my ‘full moon’ photos.

Actually the song reminds of my mother.  She’d always humming it.  But it also reminds me of the full moon.  And Audrey Hepburn – she was one of my favorite actress, even as a child.
