Water and light combined can make a pretty picture
even without a rainbow in sight ;)
I really do love how the water can look like
it's glittering when light reflects off it :)
Pretty much wherever I go these days, I tend to have a camera in my backpack or an outer pocket of the cargo shorts I like to wear in the summer (rather than the cargo pants I prefer when the temperatures drop). Believe it or not, this wasn't always so. In fact, there have been periods of my life -- which I now really do regret -- where there are scant photographic records because I didn't like as well as think to have a camera around.
Thinking back, I reckon things changed quite a bit with the advent of digital cameras. And my coming to have a blog also made me more inclined to take more photographs, including of everyday scenes which -- sometimes, upon looking back -- actually are pretty interesting; this because I feel that the likelihood has increased of someone out there enjoying seeing my snaps besides just myself!
Along the way, I've found myself not only taking more photos but also experimenting with such as taking pictures from different and unusual angles as well as a variety of subjects. Thus it was that, while taking the Star Ferry from Wan Chai to Tsim Sha Tsui, I once again couldn't resist snapping some photos during the short but pretty much always enjoyable ride but decided to opt for shots that were less conventional than usual.
For one thing, rather than focus on the views of skyscrapers on the sections of land to the north or south of Victoria Harbour, I opted for shots where the sky met the water instead. And rather than have the horizon be near the center in the photos, I had it either super high or super low in the picture instead. And if I may say so myself, I reckon the resulting pictures are pretty cool -- and consequently worth sharing on what I had intended to be a text-light blog post but actually has turned out to still be rather wordy...! ;b
