Photographer's Note

Well, I guess the title says it all...

Continuing on with some of my "less good but one's I like theme"...

This shot was taken from the pedestrian viewing tower (next to the aviary) in Hong Kong Park. Every morning hundreds of Hong Kong residents get up out of bed really early and head to the wonderful parks of Central to participate in the art of Tai Chi. This section of the park seemed to be a really popular section. The tower in the park gives you spectacular views of the city as well as the people just below.

For those that haven't been there, Hong Kong Park really reminded me of Central Park in New York. A great place to wander around in a green space in one of the premier cities of the world. Surrounded by skyscrapers and having all kinds of interesting places within it's boundaries, one could almost spend an entire day in the park. An aviary, zoo, orchid house & garden, botanical gardens with indoor displays including art & photography, ponds, trails, paths, monuments and tai chi to name a few of the things one can see and do.

I tried to be a bit artistic in this one, with the Yin Yang in the corner, balancing out the image...and the desaturation to give emphasis to the symbol and lines in the photo.

Let me know what you think,
John
