About me: Born in Guyana, raised in Canada, lived and travelled around the world. Now living with my wife and daughter in Hong Kong. An artist by any other name...just enjoying life and drawing it, sometimes photographing it. My friends envy this way of life for some reason!

It's unusual to see sunrises and sunsets in Hong Kong--I don't know why, but in my six years living here, I've only ever seen two sunsets worthy of any mention. The sun just sinks below the horizon wi... Thu, 09 Sep 2010 16:39:00
