Hazy Summer days of Hong Kong - Repulse Bay


For the whole week I was in Hong Kong, the sky was barely visible. There was a thin veil of haze that made me think of the song, Those Lazy, Hazy, Crazy Days of Summer. Think of this Nat King Cole song as referring to Hong Kong in a lazy, hazy summer...no soda and pretzels and beer but we did feel like singing a song of cheer!

Sky watching  was a totally different experience...no sign of clouds, nor sun nor moon!
But it did add a misty, mysterious atmosphere which turned out to be quite beautiful, contrasted with the bright, colourful statues in the Chinese Garden by the bay.

  5. The sky may have been gray, but it did not take away the beauty of the land. I love the laughing buda. And all the photos were fantastic.
