A shower a day, keeps the heat away!
Here is a photo taken by my friend CP.
Dor Dor is having a shower, he has one of his eyes shut to prevent ingress of water, otherwise he was thoroughly enjoying it.
Dor Dor’s owner, a woman, was giving him a shower.
She belongs to the Tanka people – people who catch fishes in Hong Kong for a living. With fish resource now dwindled, some of them resort to rearing fishes in the sea.
Her traditional straw hat keeps out the sun, she was wearing a colorful shirt and has Crocs on for her shoes.
In the picture, you can also see how those mariculture rafts are assembled – basically inexpensively from plastic water tanks on the peripheral and with fish nets in the interior.
Hope this picture helps you to understand the condition under which Dor Dor lives!

Dor Dor likes apples.
Understand apples are a nice treat for dogs with many good ingredients including fiber.
Dor Dor likes playing around with apples too, treating it almost like a ball.
This picture caught Dor Dor looking anxiously at the apple.
The apple was a bit out of his reach.
Like a child, he was not able to reach for the thing he wants, could only look at it from a distance!
Background is a hill, a boat and the sea.
His owner, of course, gives him an apple, at least one a day. The second pictures shows Dor Dor start nibbling at the apple.
It appears that many readers have asked many questions about Dor Dor.
Please be patient many of the answers are in the upcoming posts!
My friend CP spent many hours on the raft, doing nothing, just fishing.
When the sun came down, he was rewarded.
He has many fishes, but more importantly, there was a beautiful sunset before his very eyes.
The dog, Dor Dor, was however, not totally impressed.
He just lied down on the raft resting.
He has seen so many sunsets before!
I am thrilled to start on a new series.
It is about a dog that lives on the floating rafts where fishes are maricultured and where visitors can visit and stop by for fishing.
The dog is a Labrador named Dor Dor.
My friend CP Chan would go out fishing on these rafts, stay there for a few hours until the sun sets. While waiting for fishes to take his bait, he would take pictures of the dog and the surrounding.
The attached photo is the first one I posted to give you a general idea of how life is like for Dor Dor and the environs. Basically, Dor Dor is surrounded by water.
Dor Dor is so cute and likeable.
I am glad that I found him!
I realize the WPC Challenge has changed its theme to Fray this week.
But there are so many good photos which I still haven’t got the chance to show on Silhouette.
One of them is the photo below.
This photo has so much mood in it, especially the clouds and the sea.
It is an image taken by my friend CP Chan on one of his fishing trips to the fishing rafts in the New Territories in Hong Kong.
Our eyes (and brains) are always caught by something which we have never seen before. To me, this is one of those!
Here are a couple of images which I think show the most beautiful part when driving along the Pacific Coast or State Route 1.
Both images were taken by my wife as part of her 5400 miles travel in the Southwestern part of the States.
While the National Parks in the SW was her major focus of the trip, the drive back from Las Vegas to San Francisco along the SR1 was one of the most memorable.
The first photo was taken about 16 miles south of Big Sur, looking south at the McWay Rocks. The fog and the sea was just too atmospheric to describe.
The second photo shows part of the Bixby Creek Bridge in Big Sur.
Both images are wonderful examples of silhouette which I would like to share.
This picture will dispel many people’s impression that Hong Kong is a vertical, urbanized and busy city.
There is a lot of mood here, the clouds are just frightening.
It looks as if it was going to rain heavily soon.
Picture was taken by my friend CP Chan for which the credit is due..
The background are some of the hills in the New Territories of Hong Kong.
What could usually be an enchanting seaside scenery can become so intimidating!
