As I'm sure many of my fellow Photo Hunters will agree, this week's Photo Hunt theme is one where we're spoiled for choices in terms of what direction to go and photos to put up. And yes, I easily could have been content to just put up the top-most photo in this blog entry and leave it at that -- but, as you can see from it, I often find it hard to be content with just one kind of thing (be it desserts at a very nice lunch buffet or photos for a Photo Hunt!).
Also, after seeing the sign featured in the second photo from the top -- whose message I like but whose creator's inclusion of a heart symbol really seals the deal on it sweetness -- I got to thinking of illustrating the sweet theme in more abstract ways. And with the help of a couple of artists who participated in the one-day-event last November that was Sculpture on Hong Kong Sea, I believe I have.
To elaborate a bit: I am one of those people who emotionally as well as intellectually responds to art ("even" modern art) -- and among the pieces on view that day that not only captured my attention but also got me thinking were sweet as well as cool were Wong Chung Wing's simple yet evocative Helping Each Other and Bill Chan Kwok Man's Walking Together (the latter of which also made me smile because of its probably inadvertent resemblance to Gumby!).
(Additionally, yes, I do feel that it's pretty sweet that this week's Photo Hunt theme has given me the opportunity to put up more photos of that event! ;b )
