Cannes going silent, Southern France

18 years ago when I first came here, even when it was at night, it was still very crowded.  Considering a town with 1km long and 200 meter wide with 40,000 visitors, that was the golden era.  This year, it dropped to 5,000 visitors.  On the last photo, that's Carrefour I often visit for some Evian and fresh fruits.

A few hours of sun out of a week of rain and wind, Southern France

The first 6 photos were taken on the only sunny afternoon during my stay in Cannes.  Later on it became so rainy and windy that it had been really chilling cold.  The whole European continent has been having some rough weather.  My umbrella has been with me all the time and it almost got broken.

Dim Sum Bar, 點一龍, Harbour City, Tsimshatsui, Kowloon

This place is located next to the cinema of Harbour City and very close to China HK City.  Out of curiosity that it's run by Cafe Deco Group, I came here for a try, but all the food are not so impressive.  Besides, it's a much too overpriced.  The soup is about HK$48 (only a small bowl).  The dim sum is about HK$30-48.   That told why the shop wasn't crowded.

Macro shopping day, World Trade Center, Causeway Bay HK

A macro lens 100mm F2.8 was used to take the below photos.  Though it's quite difficult to handle (due to the macro distance focal length and at 100mm that it's easy to have hand shake), I find the quality so special and unique, and the nice DOF.

Another Christmas, another year, another city, another story

Will there be another Earth, another sun, another sea, another me….  Another universe?

Harrod's Cafe, KLCC, KualaLumpur

This shop has been in KLCC for quite a long time.  Somehow I didn't try it, until this time that I found KLCC much too crowded for me to find a quiet place for a drink.  To certain people, they may feel that some shops with nice deco. and a prestigious name may mean "pricey".  That isn't the case often.  The drink and cake in this outlet are at the same price of Starbucks or CBTL.  Got an iced mocha which was blended with a choco ice cream.  It's quite rich to me though the ice cream is not bad.  Then we tried an English tea cake.  A bit too sweet to me and overwhelmed the fine English tea leaves flavour.  After all, what I want is a quiet place from the hectic and busy KLCC mall.

鹿回頭, 鹿不回頭 - 海南島三亞市

這裡有一個故事,年輕壯士跑過九十九座山,跨過九十九個海,到了這島上最南端的崖上.  一頭鹿在回頭一望這壯士,化身為一女子,跟隨壯士在這灣內定居.  世世代代,後人為這崖稱作"鹿回頭",這灣為"情人灣"。
不其然,腦海中將這傳說,聯想一位故人。就這樣來了另一個故事⋯⋯
壯士流放到這島上,天天夜夜在想念故鄉妻兒,跨過這島上廷綿溪河,跑過南北西東山崖,對著無盡頭大海呼喊,這些影象攝入一頭仙鹿眼簾內.  仙鹿就在這崖上等,壯士終於跑到這裡。
仙鹿用了畢生的法力,眼睛一貶,將壯士過往的一切忘掉。也在那一貶眼,仙鹿正要化身為一女子,可惜法力不繼,再一貶眼,變回一頭鹿。壯士帶著這頭鹿在這灣區內遊牧,沒有情感背負,忘掉一切,一個人也過得很好。這頭鹿也忘了自己的一切,不用再帶著永遠不死之身去看透世間情,過得很好⋯⋯  
這時我聽到祖母在對我說,這故事我聽懂了,謝謝你沒有將這故事懷上我的恨意,只記掛簡簡單單的一個他,也好讓他走得簡單。不回頭。
