One year ago today, I started writing this blog. Looking back at my first blog post, the mood it captured seems serious and a bit wistful, sad even. These days, I like to think, my blog entries are written in a generally cheerier vein and spirit. And, indeed, early on, I did hope that this blog would help release my inner Pollyanna. Hence my trying to write to focus on that which makes me happy, like and love.
Which brings us to this week's Photo Hunt theme: one that I very much enjoyed thinking about and mulling what to especially focus on. At the end of the day though, it's really impossible to go beyond the fact that I Love Hong Kong (and being in Hong Kong). Hence my going ahead and putting up a couple more photographs taken in the part of the world that I am ever so happy to be able to currently call home.
More than incidentally, this pair of photos were taken on the type of day in the Hong Kong which I particularly love: i.e., those of low pollution and beautiful, bright blue skies. Much as I would like for it to be otherwise though, over here in the Pearl River Delta, such days aren't ones that can be taken for granted any more. Instead, when they do occur, they get cherished all the more and compel me, even more than usual, to want to be out and about and enjoying being in the ample public outdoor spaces that the place that likes to call itself Asia's World City is rather unexpectedly able to offer up.
