Olive Batley R.I.P., Mainland Chinese kids run wild in the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Central and my favourite orb spider dies a glorious death in battle
At a particular spot on Peak Road (yes, the one that leads to the Peak!) you can get a fabulous view of Aberdeen and some of our outlying islands... problem is there is no pavement and it is on a sharp bend and there are loads of tour coaches whizzing by every couple of minutes... the things I do to get the shot.
I spent a couple of hours in Hong Kong Cemetery in Happy Valley, what a fascinating place... this gravestone caught my eye... what a tragedy
Squinting eyes, muttered curses, yup - there was a party of 10 Mainland Chinese Tourists checking out of the Mandarin Oriental Hotel and these tykes ran wild in the lobby, shouting and screaming and pushing the suitcase along at high speed and all the while Mum and Dad sat there laughing at the antics of their misbehaving offspring.
Credit to the security staff in the Hotel for having a sense of humour, I cannot repeat what the other guests in the lobby were saying. .....
One of my favourite Golden Orb spiders is now an ex - spider - it looks like it died in battle with another Orb which also departed this mortal coil, some smaller spiders had moved in and were chowing down on them...
I spotted this Orb spider in a web that was about 9 feet across, it was gigantic!
We have been looking for an ornament to adorn our somewhat size challenged living room so I got very excited when I saw that this Jade Buddha was on sale at a huge discount, my heart sank when I saw the discounted price was still HK$8,750,000 or US$1,125,000 - I am now wondering if they have a payment plan....
Scooters here are getting larger and more powerful, pity about the dodgy red helmet.
Butterflies annoy me, they simply will not sit still long enough to get a decent image so I was amazed when this little blighter landed right in front of me and sat still for a whole 45 seconds. Yahoo!
I got this image by holding my camera above my head as I was stood outside the entrance. The house is located on Stubbs Road and it is so 1970's but it is really showing it's age, shabby is the word that springs to mind. I doubt very much the owner cares what people like myself think, after all it is a huge house with a great view.
I am getting a bit arty farty with my images taken from the Peak
