The last time around that stripes were the theme of a Photo Hunt, I offered up a trio of photos of pedestrian road-crossing zones, the classic example of which are known as zebra crossing because of their visual similarity to zebra stripes. But because the markings in Hong Kong have yellow stripes on the road rather than are black and white (like in other parts of the world including Britain and Malaysia), they -- which I find to be interesting photographic subjects -- are actually called tiger crossings!
One and half years on, I find myself drawn again to putting up photos of tiger crossings; albeit different ones -- and in one case in particular, of a markedly different scale -- from the last time around. More specifically, the upper photo is of a little section of Hong Kong that remains small-scale (note the small size of the flower shop as well as the short length of the tiger crossing) in an area of the territory known for increasingly towering constructions along with deep pockets.
Meanwhile, for the second photo, I went less for one of my "artistic" shots. Put another way, I like the visual sight created by zebra crossing stripes being reflected onto -- and creating the optical illusion of looking like they continue right onto -- a bus door's glass. (And for those who don't see anything special in that vision: well, these are the kinds of things that one looks out for to make one's regular commute to work less boring than it can be! ;b )
