A couple pose for wedding pics in the High Island section
of the Hong Kong Global Geopark
Another couple in the midst of being captured by a
photographer's camera -- this time at Nam Sang Wai
Instead of going hiking earlier today like I usually do on Sundays, I went to a friend's wedding this afternoon. Considering my shutterbug propensities, it may surprise some people to find out that I actually didn't bring my camera with me to the event -- not least because it would be against my general blog policy to put up pics of a private event involving friends or family.
At the same time though, while I definitely would not think to gatecrash strangers' weddings to take photos, it's also true enough that I reckon that couples posing for wedding photos in public spaces -- including Hong Kong's geoparks and country parks! -- are fair photographic game. All in all, I must admit to being fascinated as well as amused as to where people will go -- and what some of them will do -- to get interesting wedding photos.
Put another way: I no longer am all that surprised any more to come across a couple in formal wedding garb posing for pictures in out of the way parts of Hong Kong. And I now realize that some couples are willing to do things like lie down on the water's edge at a beach in order to have some unusual photos to celebrate their impending marriage! ;b
