I'll not lie: When reading the theme for this week's Photo Hunt, I found myself wondering whether I could just point you to my Blue Skies in Hong Kong photo-essay that I put up just a little more than a month and be done with it! But, then, I figured that would be depriving me of the pleasure of going through my photo archive and hunting for some more photos with nice splashes of blue in them to put up this week.
While doing precisely that, I came across the third photo in this entry (with -- I think you'll easily agree -- its beautiful blue sky over Clear Water Bay); whereupon I must admit to thinking that, really, I might as well stop right there. But after some thought, I also decided to put up the first two photos even if they pale -- or, at least, seem less outright blue -- in comparison.
The thing with the first photo is that I really like that it shows how, what with the sea being blue as well as the sky, there are times and places (e.g., one afternoon while hiking out in eastern Hong Kong Island) where it's hard to figure where the sea ends, sky begins and horizon is! As for the second photo: some might describe the flower's color as more violet than blue but, all the same, what I like about it is that it's closer to blue -- my favorite color -- than the 'usual' (for flowers anyways) red, pink or yellow! :)
