As regular visitors to this blog know, I am not one to put up photos of myself or family members on it. Consequently, what people tend to know via this blog about my family (particularly, I realise, my mother) is through my writings and the occasional peek of them from the back and/or a distance. As for myself, ditto re the writings and substitute shadow for "from the back and/or a distance". So here's offering up two more opportunities to view me in this Photo Hunt entry -- or, at least my shadow! ;b
Incidentally, the first Photo Hunt week with a shadow theme that I participated in was back in July 2007. And although I had moved to Hong Kong a few months before, the photos I put up (including, yes, of my shadow) were actually taken while out hiking back home in Penang -- more specifically, in that section of the state where the world's smallest national park lies -- rather than the Big Lychee.
This time around, the two photos with my shadow in them were taken while out hiking in Hong Kong and feature natural background "designs" that caught my eye. More specifically, the first photo gives a glimpse of some of the 290-million-year-old Permian sedimentary rocks at Ma Shi Chau, an island in Tolo Harbour that is part of Hong Kong Geopark while the second photo was taken at Tai Long Wan of abstract art-looking patterns formed by a combination of sea water, sand, sunlight and shadow.
And speaking of subjects: I can't remember or figure out if there's another shadow besides mine in the first photo -- but if there is, it would be of my regular hiking companion and show what the two of us do quite a bit of while out in the wilds of Hong Kong besides walking (and huffing and puffing a lot): i.e., pausing to admire the scenery before and around us and putting our cameras to work! ;D
