This past Monday, I went on a wonderful hike on Hong Kong Island that took me from Wong Nan Chung Gap up to Violet Hill before ending at the edge of the Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir and provided me with terrific scenic views (two photographic examples of which can be found here). For the most part, what caught my eye during the hike were natural rather than man-made.
However, as we came to a part of the trail that presented a view of Repulse Bay and its surroundings, my attention was taken by a building that had me having a major "Eureka!" moment with regards to having found the perfect subject matter for this week's Photo Hunt. After all, it's not every day that one sees a building that's curvy in the way that the most foregrounded structure in the above photographs is, don't you think? ;b
Some additional notes about the photos: Firstly, they're taken from various elevations and I included the second one in this entry because I think it gives a better idea of how beautiful the seaview from Repulse Bay is. Secondly, one reason I kept clicking away at the same subject was that it was really windy up there on the high ground that I was hiking on and I feared that my hands were shaking so much that I wouldn't get good shots of what I was aiming to take. But after seeing the result, have to say that I'm pretty happy with both of them -- as I am with a lot of other photos I took on the hike and plan to put up on this blog to share before too long... :)
