Rackets and shuttlecocks

HDP  051
Badminton really is something here; you can find courts everywhere, from the sidewalks in the city center to the public parks as you can see on this shot. I went to play last Saturday, and boy was it fun – and physically draining, with the heat and humidity!

  • Hahaha yep!
    Semi-blinding light too, I see 🙂
    I spent 5 months in Hong Kong last year and remember seeing badminton in most parks! was so much fun when i eventually picked up a racquet, but I could never consistently hit the shuttlecock cleanly!
    i agree with virginia too, that sunlight through the trees is special… especially that purple glimmer through the lens.

  • Badminton’s still a middle to upper class sport here, but it’s getting there! I only tried it once and my tongue was hanging out after only five minutes! 😀
