Tears of a Clown...

This week I have mostly been playing tour guide to my parents, who are here to visit for 10 days. John (my step-dad) had never been out of Europe and Mum had only been to the U.S, never toward the east, so they are both really excited to be here.
We've seen the Tian Tan Buddha, Victoria's Peak, they've been to Macau and tomorrow we're going to the 10,000 Buddhas temple and Kam Shan Country Park to see the wild monkeys. It was Mum's birthday the day they arrived and so we took her down to Shek-O beach so that she could paddle in the South China Sea and get sand between her toes <3.

It's wonderful having them here, showing them the sights, sounds, tastes and smells of what has very fast become one of my favourite places in the world, and my home. We've been here 6 months now and every so often I do still stop and think "Wow! I actually live in this place. This is my home!". Normally when I'm on the ferry going across the harbour or on a hike looking across the sea and the outlying islands.

Now, I promised all of you who have joined me on my Facebook Page that I'd have some new images to share with you tonight. Fear not! My Dropbox folder has been pinging all day and I've finally got the last of them downloaded.
They're from my recent shoot with HumbleJim Photography, Albert Chan and Taxi makeup, one image from which I posted in my Model-versary blog a few weeks ago.
I had such an amazing time working with those three and sincerely hope we get to do it again some time. Taxi's styling skills are phenomenal - she was the makeup artist, hair stylist and wardrobe stylist for the shoot and, let me tell you, there was no "jack of all trades" going on there! Absolutely brilliant attention to detail and she's wonderfully creative and talented!

I absolutely *adore* the emotion in my face here. Like some sort of sad Chinese clown!

The bath really was this colour! 

I hope you enjoy, and please do let me know which one is your favourite! I just can't decide!
