Hong Kong Rocks! Believe it or not, that's the title of an article I wrote around this time last year -- and which, I was proudly surprised to find, currently comes up number 3 when one does a search for "Hong Kong rocks". (At the same time, I don't claim responsibility for such as the typo in the final paragraph as I had left that particular publication by the time the piece was published!)
The Hong Kong rocks article focused on natural geological formations found in the territory, notably the iconic Lion's Rock that I featured in a previous Photo Hunt entry and the phallic Lover's Rock, a photo of which can be seen in this photo-essay but also such other geological curiosities as dog head-shaped rocks.
Rather than go along that route, however, I've opted here to focus on some rocks found in Nan Lian Garden over in Diamond Hill, a part of Hong Kong that invariably gets me thinking of the movie named after it as well as Hollywood, Hong Kong, one more film set in the area (and partly named after its Plaza Hollywood complex).
Designed as a Tang Dynasty-style garden to complement the nearby Tang Dynasty-style Chi Lin Nunnery, it has sections that strike me as Zen-like -- and get me contemplating the interesting shapes, textures and beauty of single or isolated groups of rocks. And yes, it also does get me thinking that Hong Kong really rocks for having places like this in which the public are free to wander, wonder and generally get some aesthetic respite and inspiration. :)
