Located in the northern part of the New Territories, Hong Kong is a fish pond which has been there for as far as I can remember.
It was a spot of great scenery and liked by many picnic goers.
The fish pond has long since been abandoned as locally reared fishes are no longer competitive in prices.
This is a picture taken at one of the fish ponds.
Basically, it is abandoned; although it still has its beauty – it is more of melancholy or in a sad state.
That was how I saw it when I was last there.
I see a lot of abandoned ponds in Delaware state. Some have Tod’s now, others birds. Nice pictures.
The pond was much bigger previously, it is now overtaken by grass and weed.
It looks very natural…beautiful photo.
The pond is gradually taken over by grass and weeds, reducing the size of water, unfortunately.
I like this picture Michael!
Nice to hear from you!
“Mélancolie” would be a perfect title.
Didn’t thought of that, should have consulted you!
