“I can only draw what I see.” – Claude Monet.
I see colors, colors from the reflection of sunlight, colors of different time of the day and different temperatures.
Hong Kong, a tiny city where East meets West, is blessed with so many attractive local districts, each personalized with distinct and exciting features.
9:00AM – The Peak 山頂
Take a breath of the fresh air in the morning;
With a ray of warm orange sunlight reflecting on the high-rise buildings;
Look far into a distance, I can easily find the bustling Central, Wan Chai and Tsim Sha Tsui districts.
1:30PM – Sheung Wan 上環
The steaming hot temperature has casted a bright red color on the buildings;
Vaguely I can smell the dried seafood, hanging around the old streets like pieces of colorful flags;
The trams passing by slowly …
5:00PM– Ngong Ping 昂坪
The earthy yellow color of incenses embraces the color of dawn;
The smell of burning incense is getting stronger and stronger, to remind us all how Hong Kong received its name;
Wait!…is there someone watching us from above? haa…
6:00PM – Airport 機場
The setting sun dyed the sea water golden yellow;
Watching the airplanes going up and down;
Wondering how many people are leaving or returning to their loved ones?
7:00PM – Stanley 赤柱
Dusk has filled Stanley with a layer of dreamy mist;
The restaurants have put on their lights while the streets liven up;
With the waves orchestrating a masterpiece, as if I’m trapping in a distant paradise.
9:00PM – Aberdeen 香港仔
A golden shiny giant is flooding on the sea;
One after another, the fishing boats cut through its reflection;
Suddenly, I smell something familiar, it’s an essence of ocean; my hometown.
