Those who have been following me know that I love Trees.
I am sure it wouldn’t look so interesting if the tree is captured right in the middle of the picture.
I don’t think Hong Kong has ever been named as the City of Lights.
But I am sure visitors who has been to HK are impressed by the colorful lights they saw around the Harbor, up in the Peak or in the urban areas.
Here is a picture taken in Tsim Sha Tsui, by my classmate YM Chan, during the Christmas of 2014.
The picture of the Peninsula Hotel seems to have very few colors and looks very interesting!
This week’s challenge is Rule of Thirds.
This is definitely a photo which is off centered.
While the water is blueish with ripples from the rain drops falling hard on the winter lake, this contrasts greatly with the school of bright colored kois rushing towards a focal point.
This week’s photo challenge is Rule of Thirds.
I learned this rule very early but have basically forgotten about it when taking pictures.
I would like to think this is a rule for the novice so as to get them away taking photos with subject of interest exactly at the center.
The picture here was taken by my wife while travelling in the South West of USA, visiting many national parks.
On this picture, the tree trunks are taken at almost the third points, leaving a lot of “empty” space to show the background – in observance of the rule proposed by the Challenger.
Unfortunately, this is the only one picture I can find right now fitting this week’s theme!

I think symmetry is the basis of many designs but many contemporary designs also show asymmetry can also be beautiful too!

For Chinese, the second day of the Chinese New Year is almost as important as the New Year’s Day.
Peach blossoms symbolize growth, prosperity, long life and romance. Because they are associated with romance, peach blossoms are popular with singles who decorate them in the hope of finding love in the coming year.
Here are two photos, one showing the peach blossom tree while the other the flowers.
Hope you like them 🙂
