Bridge and Ways (This week's Photo Hunt themes)
As I pointed out in a previous entry for Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunts, one can go under Victoria Harbour. Of course, this is just one means to cross from one side of Hong Kong's major waterway to another; with other ways to do so including by way of various ferry routes.
But since there are no bridges connecting one side of Victoria Harbour to the other, I've had to look to other parts of Hong Kong to find appropriate photos for this week's Photo Hunt entry. Fortunately, there are a variety as well as large number to choose from -- with an added bonus coming from many of them to be photogenic in their own way.
In the end, I settled for shots of the following (from top to bottom): Ting Kau Bridge and Tsing Ma Bridge (which, incidentally, happens to be the second longest bridge in the world) as viewed from Lido Beach; a stone bridge over Tai Tam Tuk Reservoir that I can't help taking photos of every time I'm in the area; and a rickety wooden bridge in Sai Kung's Tai Long Wan that I must admit to not wanting to go on the first time I saw it (but have since done so, and without any mishaps too)!
And BTW, Sandi, Gattina's had "bridges" as a Photo Hunt theme before -- but it's okay since I managed to to find a different way to work with that theme this week from the one I came up with back in July last year! ;b
