好重 = hou chung: very heavy

Sunday morning in Silvermine Bay, 10 am and I was already sweating. So I could feel for these ladies:

Heavy water buckets balanced on one shoulder...

... and pushing a loaded shopping bike up a long, steep incline (the photo is misleading, but what you can see bottom right is actually a downward flight of steps)

By comparison, a kilo of camera is as light as a feather!

More country chores.

  1. I particularly feel for the woman in the top photo -- and, at the same time, appreciate the composition of your shot!

  2. Thank you. Yes, the buckets were full of water, so they must have been very heavy, and she was quite an old lady.
