Travel Photos Series#12-Kirin Sculpture at Wong Tai Sin Temple, Hong Kong

Kirin Sculpture at Wong Tai Sin Temple

I remembered when I first came to Hong Kong many years back, Wong Tai Sin Temple was the very first destination that I visited. It is the most famous temple here and you are deemed not to have visited Hong Kong if you have not pay it a visit. There were extensive renovation  over the years and I personally felt the place has become overly commercialized to attract tourists. Nevertheless, I still love to visit the temple as it offers many photo capturing opportunities with it's fabulous architectures and beautiful gardens.

This photo was taken on 3 December 2014. I presented it in black and white to reflect the rustic charm of this religious ground.

Travel Photos Series#11-The Javanese Musician

I was glad to capture this photo when I checked into Manohara Hotel on 17 March 2015 for my visit to Borobudur, one of the UNESCO World Heritage Site located in Indonesia. I spotted this friendly Javanese musician playing the traditional instrument-Gender at the reception hall.  He sportingly posed for a few photos when he seen me taking pictures of him. I always remember the smile he wore on his face :-)
