Just another face in the crowd

Spectacular view of Stromboli volcano at sunset from Tropea in Calabria, Italy.

Stromboli is a small island in the Tyrrhenian Sea, off the north coast of Sicily, containing one of the three active volcanoes in Italy. It is one of the eight Aeolian Islands, a volcanic arc north of Sicily.

Present times!

I am in constant awe of nature who assay our courage by encrusting snow so deep. We shall neither compromise nor let this affect our present.

These pictures are taken today while travelling.  I shall submit my first entry to Nancy Merrill’s “a photo a week challenge : your weather today” 😀

 

Glimpses of Hong Kong

In Hong Kong the number of tall modern buildings are so many that it seems impossible to take a picture of any place without interference of another structure. I tried and I failed. I am going to live with it. I have taken some lovely shots with reflection but will keep them for another post.

In my free time I decided to travel to Hong Kong island and visit 3 places

  • The Victoria Peak
  • Man Mo Temple
  • Zoological and Botanical gardens

I took the peak tram to go up and bus number 15 to come back to town. The Victoria peak is a typical tourist spot. From the top one gets nice view of Hongkong island and of Kowloon side. It was a warm day with clouds.

Then I visited the 150 years old Man Mo temple. A small temple premises near the hectic financial district. The giant hanging incense coils are very special.

Finally I visited the zoological and botanical garden to take some rest and fresh air.

This is my fourth post on Hong Kong trip! The earlier posts are just a click away!

The World’s Biggest Pedestrian Crossing in Shibuya, Tokyo

wpc_07oct17wpc_07oct17_2wpc_07oct17_3

For this week’s photo challenge I decided to share pictures of the world’s biggest and busiest pedestrian crossing in Shibuya district in Tokyo. According to some published figures during rush hours around 2500 people cross the streets at the same time 🙂

I am glad that for once I was part of this crowd and you believe or not but there was not a sinlge incidence of misbehaving. World needs to learn so many things from Japenese people.

You can watch from live camera the present situation 🙂  Soon it will be 4 am in Tokyo. How about watching it tomorrow around 6 pm Tokyo time?

Back to Business/Busyness

Hello friends, I hope all is good at your end!

I am overwhelmed by your kindness and would like to thank each and everyone of you for supporting my scheduled posts.

Here is my first regular post for “floral friday” after Hong Kong and Tokyo trip. The picture was taken in Botanical garden in Hong Kong. I shall soon be writing detailed posts on both the cities including travel, accommodation, food, culture and sight seeing information.

I have taken a great deal of photos and will need time to sort and work on them.  Most important is I will not keep you waiting forever 🙂

Have a nice weekend!
