Out and about (外出)

 Exercise is good. It's better if in addition to moving your muscles, you can exercise a little the acuteness of your vision in the process.


When you go to one of the outlying islands, you'll never know what you'll find, no matter how many times you've been there.



The most ordinary things are placed in the oddest positions.



and some unusual things too.



The inhabitants appear to have a predilection for bright colors


See what I mean?


You'll find flowers everywhere



hung on the eaves of houses.



in front of houses



In terraces



or just in make shift flower beds


in proper pots


in public gardens



growing by the roadside


on the garden walls


It's entirely a matter of chance whether the flowers will be in bloom


Some flowers looks so unreal!


I almost mistook this one for an artificial flower but it's not.


Some grow in clusters,


others have an aversion to the crowd.


 Light seems to transform everything.



It creates shadows.



in the most unexpected places



it adds colors to trees.



Everything looks starker



It makes leaves translucent



It creates textures



it highlights outlines



it gives a new lease of life to even withered leaves



it calls attention to shapes which you'll never ever otherwise notice.



It makes the clouds much more visible



it makes the sea blue


It creates a sense of layering of the colors of our beaches


It makes different forms more visible


In such a humid place as Hong Kong, there'll always be pictures crafted by rust.


they pock-marked eyes


They mark the passage of time, which waits for none.
