Heart and vintage (This week's Photo Hunt themes)
As regular visitors to this blog (including fellow participants of Sandi's and/or Gattina's Photo Hunt memes) can't help but realize, I love hiking in Hong Kong -- and really heart that there are plenty of cool sights for me to check out when I'm on the trails.
To be sure, when out on a beautiful, clear air day hiking such as the Tai Tan Country Trail (that I like so much I've happily hiked it twice -- with different pairs of friends -- as well as took enough photos to make up three photo-essays (see here, here and here) the first time around), it can be hard to tear one's eyes away from the gorgeous -- vintage even? ;) -- vistas that abound in this part of the world.
But my experience of hiking on hazy, misty, foggy and polluted air days have trained and taught me to look closer around me as I walk along the trails. And now, even on days when one can see far into beautiful blue yonders, I find that there invariably are nearby things that will catch my eye.
Thus it was, that (even) while walking along the Tai Tan Country Trail, I came to spot two rocks -- whose age I can't tell, but probably are old enough to be considered vintage -- that looked to me like nature had carved into hearts! (For surely you won't be stone-hearted and not allow me this stretch of the imagination that makes it so that I can "play" this week? ;b)
