我們的天星小輪 our star ferry

2013.8.11 | victoria harbour 維多利亞港
今天颱風天。過去一星期多的藍天被風和雲遮蔽了。特意找來前天坐船拍下的風光,想念那赤熱大氣。當日是星期天,雖然怕人多,但慶幸坐的船班滿座。祝福天星。

a typhoon is hitting us today. the blue sky and big sun blessed us for more than a week was swept away. can’t help taking out this photo taken two days ago as i miss the bright hot summer conditions. it was sunday afternoon. i hate crowd. but I am glad that the ferry was full when this photo was taken. bless star ferry.

天星小輪的綠、黑和奶白,在藍天下綠水上,陽金光映襯中特別美。船上每件配件很有味道,而且有工業挺拔的美:船身的每口圓釘,駕駛艙的陀,船首船尾的纜柱,船纜水泡等等。不要忘記,天星小輪的船都是香港製造,在黃埔船塢出生的。

if you are a follower of my blogs or a friend, you know i LOVE star ferry. allow me to elaborate a little, this time on the details of the boat. adore every little and big pieces of these vessels: the green + black + cream colour combination; the double-headed design, the wooden steering wheel and the golden shinning part in the sailing cabin, the bubbles …

apart from the clean and practical industrial design which is already very sexy, sentimental factor plays in – all these “stars” were made in hong kong back in the 50s and 60s at the hong kong & whampoa shipyard; we were all born here.
