The Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong by night is just magical.
It’s lights everywhere and the reflection is twinkling.
The best harbor view I have seen of all the places that I have been.
The Old Man and the Sea?
Not sure, but this is a picture taken by my classmate (YM Chan) of a fisherman in traditional hat fishing on a sampan.
The sea was sparkling – there were twinklings reflected from the sea.
I like birds in flight – but my photographic equipment is not good enough for capturing them.
Here are a couple of photos which are taken by my calligraphy classmate Mr. Chung Kwok Fan.
He said they are not good enough to be shown in a blog; but I think otherwise.
The first one shows an egret in flight and the second one has got a fish in its beak.

Repetitive architectural patterns usually appear as convergence when viewing the whole length.
The first picture was taken at the Cultural Center of Hong Kong. There is a line of inclined struts at the ground level. The picture was taken underneath the struts.
The second picture was taken at the aquarium at Okinawa, Japan.
The roof has a repetitive pattern of triangular arches; again they appear as converging at a distance.

Many of my classmates have now reached retirement age and are now enjoying their new phase of life.
Quite a number of them actually have taken up photography.
With so much time in their hands, they travel and take photos – some of them are just awesome.
Here again, are some photos taken by my university classmate YM Chan.
I like egrets – capturing their motion in flying or even at rest.
I do not have a lot of opportunities to take photos of them – in fact, as I do not have the necessary long lenses to do that.
Please enjoy these photos taken in Nam Sang Wai of Hong Kong!
Whenever I traveled, I know I have left my heart in Hong Kong.
This is the place so dear to me in my heart.
Of all places in Hong Kong, I love the harbor best.
The picture was taken by my university classmate YM Chan; it is a wide angle view of the harbor and with magnificent clouds.
I just can’t stand fishing under the sun!
However, many anglers do enjoy fishing even when the temperatures are high and the sun was burning.
Here is a picture showing the anglers fishing in Hong Kong. Most of them have put their caps on; those who do not have a cap do have an umbrella.
In the background is the Victoria Harbor and some of the high rises.
From the picture, you can feel the heat coming out.
This is yet another picture from my angler friend CP Chan, to whom credit is due.
