I like looking outside my window.
In my blog, I have various posts titled : Gazing Out From my Window.
This is a view outside my window around 6pm last evening – the so called Grey Hour.
The clouds were colorful and in a funny configuration.
The air was stuffy as typhoon Megi just passed north of us.
The picture was captured with a smartphone.
The hot Summer has passed and I have just started hiking up the hillside of the nearby hills.
The temperature is below 30 degrees, but it is still hot at times.
Walking up the hillside, I discovered this tree stump with some bright color fungus.
I have never seen them before and was glad to have captured them with my smart phone.
I always remember the bright and full moon during the night of the Mid Autumn Festival.
When it is dark, children will get their lanterns out to play. It is a fantastic sight with so many lights of different colors and shapes brought together.
Families will gather together; some prefer outdoors and enjoy their favorite seasonal food and moon cakes.
The strongest typhoon this year Meranti has just passed us by, landed several hundred kilometers north of us in China.
Meanwhle there is another typhoon which is making a ninety degree turn to hit the southern part of Japan.
The air here is stagnant and stuffy. These typhoons have messed up the weather conditions here.
The sky was full of clouds when it was just getting dark.
I know the moon is not coming out tonight and write this post on a Mid Autumn Festival night.
Nevertheless, the sky was beautiful during the golden hour when I took this picture with a smartphone.
This week’s photo challenge is Mirror.
These two photos were taken with a smartphone behind the window glass.
Both show reflection of some sort.
The first picture definitely show glare in a few places.
There is also reflection of the distant buildings in the Victoria Harbour too.
The second picture was also taken in the same building but with no reflection from the glass.
We were dining there, in the restaurant, up on the 38th floor, somewhere in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
This year has already seen an unusual amount of rainfall.
As we sipped our tea on the 102 level of the building, we were dismayed by the heavy rain beating against the window pane.
This marred the otherwise fantastic view – this is the view from the tallest building in the area.
The rain drops have smeared the windows, making the views look uninviting.
As somebody with a craze for taking pictures, I wouldn’t mind taking photos of these; recording that the Lord has given me another blessed day.
We were disappointed when we arrived at the restaurant on level 102 as we couldn’t see anything from the windows on account of the rain and the condensation.
So, we just enjoyed our lunch.
The weather turned better after finished lunch and I have my mint tea.
The mist seemed to be rising from the sea ( Victoria Harbor) as I went near to the window to get some shots.
The mist seemed so thick and fantastic as I aimed my camera towards the Ocean Center and the China Macau Ferry Terminal on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.
The view was so surreal!
It has been raining for several days.
We were up on Floor 102 of the Ritz Carlton, Hong Kong enjoying our lunch.
The weather was pretty bad and we couldn’t see a thing from the windows.
Then the sky suddenly cleared up.
There were still rain drops on the window pane.
The view of the Victoria Harbor from there was just magnificent.
The clouds beneath us together with the rain drops really add to the mood.
