Daily banalities

It's banal to say that a photo 'captures a moment'. Still, it's undeniably true, and I think some photos convey a sense of a 'moment' better than others. Like these, for instance.

Both of these photos were taken with my little compact camera on my journey to work last year, and both photos are taken within 100 metres of each other. (When those kids turn the corner, they'll see the shop in front of which the man is sitting.) I don't carry my SLR around with me all the time but I always try to have some means of taking a photo on me.

After all, it's the banality of certain moments, which, when captured, makes them special.

What is small, fluffy and lives at the Wetland Park?

These guys (Or, to be more accurate, girls)... 

This highly distinctive fluffball is a Daurian Redstart. Obviously. 

Oriental Magpie Robin. Less Christmassy, more oriental, more identity-complexed.

... But also, this little fellow! (Best shot I could get, he was a bit shy)

Is it a vole? Rodents aren't my forte
Happy, fluffy New Year to all.

- More small, brown things -

Land of no cheese appears in Time Out HK's 2nd January issue with a brick wall and other bits and pieces.
