As can be seen from my offering up just one photo (rather than the more usual two or three -- like with last week's sadly under-visited entry), this week's Photo Hunt theme is one that I don't have all that many suitable candidates for. To be sure, I could have gone and taken some snaps of the wrinkled clothing I have on account of my never haven't really mastered the art of ironing but I figured that would make for too mundane a sight! So, instead, here's offering up a photograph of one of the many gold colored and other statues that are to be found as one makes one's way up and down the hill that is home to the 10,000 Buddhas Monastery near Shatin in Hong Kong's New Territories that I visited -- and went rather snap-happy at -- last August.
Rather than be one of the 10,000 Buddhas on display at the monastery, however, this statue looks more to be that of a Chinese sage -- albeit, one would think, one who has been suitably enlightened by Buddhism. Perhaps that is why, for all of his having a wrinkled forehead, he looks pretty happy and content -- an exemplar of it being thoroughly possible after all for one to grow old happily as well as gracefully! ;b
(*Weather update for those who've been keeping track: The typhoon warning signal hoisted is now down to 3 as Nuri has passed through Hong Kong and now up north.)
