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.
Travelling by boat from Central, Hong Kong to the nearby outlying islands has always been something enjoyable.
For a reasonable fare, you can just jump onto a ferry and, off you go, in less than an hour you find yourself in one of the beautiful islands with a lot of its own characteristics.
The ferry piers in Central have their own characteristic too. They usually have two decks for berthing double decked ferries.
On a beautiful day when the sun was setting, this pier looks like a toy house – a toy house on water.
The pier was illuminated in the interior and you can see all the details inside.
What a splendid sunset!

Here is another submission for this week’s challenge – Minimalist.
One cold morning, we stopped by the river bank in Luk Keng, NT, Hong Kong.
The river meets the sea here. It is a place where egrets would come and look for their prey, especially when the tide is out.
We saw this lone egret standing there, maybe, waiting for its prey.
Apart from the white body and the reflection of the egret, the background was just placid but enchanting.
There was a sense of calmness throughout in the river estuary.
Earlier this year, on a trip to Shikoku, we stopped by a waterway.
We saw a lone swam swimming.
Again, apart from the swam, there is minimally nothing - only the dripping plants and the water!
We walked for a couple of hours towards Hoi Ha Bay in the New Territories of Hong Kong.
It was getting a bit late and there was no sunshine.
It was a coastal walk; viewing out towards the sea, we noted that the sea and the sky seemed to merge.
Further away were some lonely islands.
It was peaceful and minimalistic!
How’s life like on a fishing raft during Autumn?
The easterly monsoons are now coming in, bringing with it fine but cooler weather.
It could become quite cool during the night, especially out on a raft floating on the sea.
Sometimes, Dor Dor would put on a scarf around his neck.
See how gorgeous he looks!
Buildings wrapped up with photos and paintings?

HONG KONG — One of this city’s first-ever public art installations has been unveiled, courtesy of Louis Vuitton and artist Richard Prince, who has wrapped the Hong Kong Museum of Art with enlarged replicas of pulp-fiction novel covers.
The installation, which takes its theme from Prince’s “After Dark” series, heralded a significant exhibition of paintings, photographs and video installations collectively called “Louis Vuitton: A Passion for Creation” that was displayed inside the Museum of Art.
Located along the Tsim Sha Tsui promenade, the Museum of Art is one of Victoria Harbour’s most recognizable landmarks. Prince has covered the entire exterior with printed fabrics featuring bright colors and animated graphics. Each panel illustrates after-midnight stories in different cities around the world, with every other panel representing Hong Kong After Dark. The images are created using “rephotography,” a process Prince described as “resemblance more than reproduction. A rephotograph is essentially an appropriation of what’s already real about an existing image and an attempt to add on or additionalize this reality onto something more real — a virtuoso reality.”

These 2 pictures taken several minutes ago remind me of Autumn.
They also remind me that Summer is gone . . . . . . . .
and some cooler weather is coming.
But at the moment, I just enjoy these views outside my window!
