Today, we play the numbers game; or, at least, do something with numbers on account of this week's Photo Hunt theme being a numerical one (pun intended!). ;b
On a numerical trivia note: I generally archive my photos in folders with numerical names. For example, the two photos above are from the 2010-05-23 folder -- numbers which help me to remember that they were taken back on May 23rd of this year.
On that pleasant Sunday, I took my mother -- out here in Hong Kong on one of her visits -- to Lamma Island where, among other things, we hiked the Lamma Island Family Trail that goes across the island from Sok Kwu Wan to Yung Shue Wan. Rather than do a round trip on foot, we took the ferry from Hong Kong Island to Sok Kwu Kwan and then the ferry back from Yung Shue Wan.
As we headed towards the Yung Shue Wan pier, we saw the next ferry fast approaching and lots of other people hurrying to catch it. Even as I did my own bit of rushing though, I couldn't resist pausing to take photos along the way -- including of a helpful electronic indicator box telling folks not only what time the ferry would be sailing out but also how many "seat" (sic.!) remained available on that ferry. (And yes, there really were many vacant seats left on the boat -- so we were able to have our choice of seats as well as comfortably spread ourselves and our bags about on the approximately half an hour ride back into a more bustling, densely populated part of the Big Lychee.) ;b
