Today was a Good Day!
Lazily doing nothing.
Only watching cranes from afar in Luk Keng in the northern rural part of Hong Kong.
I suddenly realize that I have no post prepared for this week.
There is a disruption at this end as my modem was burnt out and there were some personal issues to attend to.
The DP’s weekly photo challenge is Today was a Good Day.
I don’t need a day with special gaiety and excitement; what I needed is a day when I can walk by the sea and feeling at peace with myself.
This photo was taken when I did such a walk by the seaside of rural Hong Kong ( the New Territories ).
A day sweetly doing nothing but feeling blissful!
This week’s DP photo challenge is Creepy.
A rain storm was coming and the sky was darkened.
There was something creepy about it; with dark clouds and silhouettes.
Picture was taken in a remote part of Hong Kong.
We were up on the 62nd floor of a cylindrical building on Hong Kong island.
The restaurant on this floor has an external core which rotates so that visitors can get a range of different views in an hour.
This is one of the street views “underneath my feet” which I captured.
I know I have been violating the Rule of Thirds – and that’s the reason why I have ended up with stacks of photos which are Half / Half.
Here is a picture taken at a beach in Hong Kong when the sun was setting.
I like the atmosphere and both halves of the picture – the beach and the sky.
Which half do you belong?
The white half which represents light and happiness?
The black half which represents dark and imprisoned?
This is my only departure from my usual landscape / seascape photos.
A picture I have taken of the sculpture by Ju Ming.
This picture was taken just minutes before I got wet from the rain!
Depending on how you look at it, there could be many Halves.
It is a picture of half sky + hills against half water and reservoir dam.
It is a picture with the left hand side dark because of the rain clouds and the right hand side relatively brighter.
It is a picture of contrasting halves, on the right you have the fresh calm water in a reservoir reclaimed from the sea, the armour protection on the right by the side of the road access is still bright and clear. On the left, the sea was already dark and somewhat choppy.
So, this photo taken at Plover Cove Reservoir, Hong Kong contains many contrasting halves!
