[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
It was a warm marning but full of fog. It was on my way to go to Beijing, and I asked for a stop in Hong Kong for one day to at least see a part of it.

I choosed to visit the Lantau Island and one of the biggest attractions is the Big Buddha on the top of a mounatin. The statue is really huge... but the fog was so dense (even high up there) that I couldn't get a good shot. I decided to look around and try to find a subject that is usually hidden by the fame of the main attraction.

So here are the statues placed at specific places around the top of the mountain in order to present offerings.

I had to wait a while for a moment when there's less fog (the constant wind clears the way sometimes). I can't say I expected something outstanding but i tried, after all this is how to learn! After all, it isn't that bad in my opininon.

Once more, I wish I could have a digital camera at that moment (this is a scanned photo).
