In addition, when I think of bad weather days, gray is the colour that tends to come to mind -- and it's not just the dark grays and black of storm clouds but also the bleary low visibility-causing grays of pollution-causing haze and more natural mist.
On those low visibility gray days, it really can lift the spirits to catch sight of some bright colours, as was the case one afternoon when I took a cross-harbour ferry from Kowloon City to North Point. For while the sky was gray, and so too quite a bit of my surroundings, the sailing craft I spotted out in Victoria Harbour most certainly were not -- and ditto re the working boats and even certain of the buildings located near the harbor such as the colorful -- and thus easily recognisable -- Kowloonbay International Trade and Exhibition Centre (aka KITEC).
Consequently, it was an easy decision to use a couple of snaps I took on that ferry ride for Sandi's and Gattina's Photo Hunt this week. As for the photo at the very top of this blog post, it actually was taken near the end of a hike from Discovery Bay to Mui Wo where the weather closer to the route was very fortunately not as dramatic looking as further away near the higher Lantau peaks! :)
