There's plenty of green -- and, for that matter, blue -- in the top-most photo of this entry for Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunts this week "but where's the wind?" I can anticipate some of you asking. For that, I ask you to focus on the colored specks on the water -- for those are windsurfers out there practicing and enjoying the only sport for which Hong Kong has won a gold medal for at the Olympics!
One afternoon decades ago in Penang, I tried my hand at windsurfing and concluded that it wasn't for me. But I do reckon that windsurfers at play often make for eye-catching sights -- and especially so since they often do so in photogenic locales (such as in the vicinity of Wong Shek Pier and in the Tolo Harbour off Tai Mei Tuk here in Hong Kong).
Even more spectacular than the windsurfers are the kite surfers, including those of I've seen speeding about in -- and even spending some time in the air above -- the waters of Cheung Chau, the charming island that I most associate with Riley Ip's lovely Just One Look but which many Hong Kongers most associate with Olympic windsurfing champion Lee Lai San.
Now that we've established that all three of these photos in this blog post fit the wind theme, here's also pointing out that in addition to there being colored green bits in all the images, they are of sports that are pretty environmentally friendly -- i.e., green. After all, they don't require any motorised components to carry out -- only wind along with human power! :b
