Although I may not write too much about doing so these days, I do (like doing) my share of reading. Not too long ago, I read the very affecting My Losing Season by Pat Conroy. Which may be why when I saw the theme for this week's Photo Hunt, I just couldn't get the phrase (and title of one of Conroy's best-selling books) The Water is Wide out of my mind!
Still, rather than plum emotional depths in the way he -- and a traditional folk song with that title -- does with, and behind, that phrase, I've taken it more as face value. Which is why my photos of choice -- both taken with my trusty Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ2 (which comes complete with wide-angle lens (recommended by a friend as being ideal for taking landscape shots) as well as a wide zoom range) -- literally show wide expanses of water, with the added bonus of having wide swathes of blue (along with bits of brown and green) within... ;)
(And for the record: Yes, these are photos of Hong Kong! More specifically, of Clear Water Bay and High Island Reservoir respectively. :b)
