As I outlined in last week's Photo Hunt entry, one is likely to encounter patches of local culture along with nature when out hiking in Hong Kong -- and as I think the snaps in this week's Photo Hunt entry clearly shows, the former sometimes can be quite whimsical as well as colorful in nature!
More specifically, the photographs at the top of this blog post are of guardians of cultivated patches of land I've encountered over the course of hikes in the Sai Kung Peninsula, northwestern Hong Kong and Lantau Island respectively.
Not your usual generic scarecrows in appearance, I have to admit that the sight of them all caused me to double up with laughter. Also, while the figure in the second photo looks more suited to be a child's beloved plush and the figure in the third photo's maker clearly was inspired by the Frankenstein monster, I can't fathom out what the maker of the figure in the first photo wanted his or her patched up creation to resemble (if anything besides something humanoid enough to scare off pests).
Does anyone of you have any ideas? If so, feel free to submit them in the comments section of this blog entry! :b
