Well Bird a Day it is but today I shot some street. Shock horror. The M9 went for a walk. First, so as to comply with my BAD requirement, another bulbul. Sooty-headed Bulbul is reasonably common in some localities, Long Valley being one of them. They are not so easy to photograph though. They don’t seem to have the exhibitionist tendencies of their cousins. They sit higher up. They also seen to have a built in GPS to make sure their location is perfect for frustrating the photographer. Invariably against the light. This week I found a small group in a farmer’s shelter at Long Valley. I seized the opportunity to take a quick snap, rubber gloves included. This sort of shot is kept only until I get something better. It may survive longer than I hope.I went out this morning to support a new photographic studio in Sai Kung. Lightjar Photography opened today and I wish it well. Mrs. Ha and I dropped by and they have a nice bright airy studio above the premises of my former employer. Good choice, Karin. I then went for a stroll and here are a few of the shots from our walk.
Staring at a gweilo is undoubtedly better than getting your face wiped by mum. Laughter is infectious, whatever the age group. This elderly lady looked very sad but maybe she was just tired. If I can do headless birds surely I can do headless people. The future’s bright…..? For some the shock of the sunshine was just too much.And that concludes our whirl around the town for today. A huge vote of thanks to Sooty for stopping it being a clean Sweep by the street.
