Is it a general optical quirk or just one confined to my digital camera? I'm referring here to the fact that many naturally purple items I've seen in real life turn out to more grayish, brownish and reddish (e.g., rocks I saw while hiking in Northeast Hong Kong) and whiteish (i.e., more than one flower) than purple in photos I've take of them.
On the other hand, until I hunted through my photo archives to find suitable candidates for this week's Photo Hunt entry, I hadn't realized that the night sky over Hong Kong Island in one photo I took looked as purple as it did!
As it so happens, that was the evening I had ventured over to the Hong Kong Cultural Centre over in Tsim Sha Tsui for a show and happened to find portions of that normally pink-tiled edifice looking distinctly purple tinted. Consequently, here's offering up a pair of night shots even though, normally, I don't feel that my night photos are as good or successful as the products of my daytime camera-clicking efforts.
