Cat Nap...

He stretches,

He scowls,

He goes back in for a nap,

Flower Lanterns or Lantern Flowers?

On my walks today I saw these pretty things. They remind me so much of Chinese lanterns, perhaps they came out for the festival?!

Waterfalls and Water Gods

Today I took my new BFF (camera) for a jaunt on the bus to Wah Fu on the south side of the island, to visit the mostly unknown Waterfall Bay Park. One thing I noticed about the Wah Fu estate was that the population mainly consisted of people over the age of 60. Which is probably why the Waterfall Bay Park was deserted as they were all playing Mahjong. BFF and I sauntered down to find the waterfall and came upon these guys...

...after a quick map check we realised the waterfall was on the opposite side of the park. After a short and sweaty walk we reached the waterfall.

Its pretty and serene but very confusing...its smack bang in the middle of two residential estates.
Only in Hong Kong.

High rise living...

With square footage rather rare the only way to make buildings big enough to house the millions of people in Hong Kong is to go UP.

灯笼 ...

The Mid Autumn Festival is fast approaching and decisions need to be made on which lantern is right for the occasion. I am drawn to the little bunny ones...

...although, this angry birds one is kinda funny.

Home Sweet Home

A couple of weeks ago I took a trip home to visit my new niece. Who is beautiful and perfect and it was very hard to leave her. Sniff sniff.
It had also been a while since I was back home so I took the opportunity to capture it with my little mini diana. I love the square mode on it, the pics always look cute so this is what I set it on...although you will see that the format changed somehow...who knows why?! Wasn't like it fell off my shoulder or anything, eh hem. Thankfully the results turned out ok...hooray!

Pedestrian Crossing on Des Voeux Road Central

I love this image, I took it this morning when I passed a truck on Gage Street. The intensity of the blue is amazing. I also love that the paint has been layered over years and gives these doors a little character.

ps. I am loving my new camera.

Guess what I've got...

... a new camera! The Boy came up trumps and has given me a snazzy DSLR. (not that I dropped hints or anything, eh hem) So we took it out for a test run the other night and these are some of the shots.
Thinking about it makes me smile.
