Photographer's Note

Hong Kong people do not have many local parks to walk around, so the management offices of resident buildings try to have some nice landscaping for residents to enjoy. I saw this palm tree on my walk home.

Tech: Without looking through the viewer, I held the camera against the foot of the palm tree and took a few snaps. This was the sharpest one. Resized, sharpened. Brightness -3. Contrast +6.
