Some weeks, I spend part of my Saturday afternoon after work -- yes, alas, mine is a 5 1/2 day work week :S -- going around town with a camera, trying to find a worthy and appropriate subject for the week's Photo Hunt. Some other weeks, on the other hand, are ones with themes that get me happily thinking "Yay, I have just the photo(s) in my collection to showcase!" And as it so happens, yes, indeedy, re this happening to be one of the latter weeks. :)
For, back in July of this year, I had gone on the Ping Shan Heritage Trail and towards the end of my explorations, I had come across the small shrine, complete with orange offerings (which, for the purposes of this Photo Hunt, are great for emphasising how small the pair of religious figurines in the photo in question really are!)
But precisely because the figurines are rather small, they may not make for quite an impressive photographic subjects. Consequently, I'm also including a second photo in this entry that also have small religious figurines as their main subject matter; only this time around, they are ones that are part of a much larger and, accordingly, far more visually impressive assemblage!
As you might imagine, I was close to speechless when I first spotted this unusual assemblage of religious figurines; and this not least because I honestly had never read or been told about its existence! To this day, I don't know much about who is its creator -- or creators -- and such. Only that this collection of figurines is to be found in what looks to be part the apparently not very well known -- or visited -- Waterfall Bay Park, located near Wah Fu over on the western side of Hong Kong Island. And that another intrepid blogger also has been to the area and similarly thought that the shrine was worth photographing and mentioning on a blog... ;b
