Let's start a new photo topic here, inspired by Flickr's photo story feature, where everybody can post photos around a keyword or topic, forming a sequential story without any or just a few words, like a short caption.

Let's post pictures that are TYPICAL of Lamma, than describe what Lamma is all about, an aspect, a facet of our home in a single picture.

I've got the perfect picture to get started, a brilliant photo submitted by Pit today. I used it in the Lamma-zine Blog first, but it's so good and so ironical that it inspired me to start this new topic here.

Who's got the next picture? I'll help with posting, if you have any problems with simply attaching a picture to your posted message.

The Island Bar after dragon boat practice is very typical of Lamma.

That's a great historic photo, Mr Chan!

I had no idea that the Lamma Ladies dragonboat teams have been around since the days of B/W photography.
But it's really a very "Typically Lamma!" scene.

I found a more recent one, from last year, very close to the Island Bar. One of my favourites, shot by Dawn, I think. I like the smug grin of the rooster amidst his harem...

They're starting to recruit for this year tomorrow, Sat, in the Island Bar after 4pm.
If you want to become an official member of the ultimate in-clique on Lamma, this is your chance!

Maybe this year they could pick a better backdrop for the team photo

Uncle Guy,

Any "Typically Lamma!" photo from the moderator of this forum and a very-very-long-time Lamma resident?

Must be getting desperate if you're asking me for a photo - will see if I can find one that links

Typically Lamma?

There are many pretty "birds" on Lamma, but a pigeon is not a typical one, I think...

Anybody else?

My apologies, I must have completely misinterpreted your intention :oops:

Should have realised your purpose for posting was either to get a string of photos about dragonboat racing or women on Lamma. Or is there something else I missed?

I must also confess at being unable to see the connection between a Police Box picture on CNY & the Dragonboat Ladies in front of the Post Office.
My apologies once again. :oops:

OK, I might not have made myself clear enough.
I'm looking for photos that describe the SPIRIT of Lamma, that encapsulate the relaxed, free-wheeling, live-and-let-live attitude or anything else that is TYPICAL of living here, Lamma-specific and DIFFERENT from living elsewhere, especially different from the rest of Hong Kong, good or bad.
Why do we love (and/or hate) living here?

Why do the first three photos qualify?

Fireworking the Policebox:
A prime example of the less restrictive rules of life on Lamma, activites that are punishable elsewhere thumbing your nose at authority, even challenging them by letting off firecrackers right at where law enforcement lives. An activity punishable by $25,000 in town and only done in secret is being done openly on Lamma. Similar to smoking pot in public, hawking on Main Street or putting up posters openly on every available surface, prosecuted activities that could cost you at least $1,500 in town, but here many businesses, the police and politicians do it without fear of the law.

Dragonboat ladies:
What could be more typical of the Lamma community than dragonboating? A great source of local pride (and amusement), a major bonding experience, a good reason for frequent parties during the season, sponsored & supported by many locals & businesses, a cross-section of the expat and local communities,... it all makes it into a major and important part of the Lamma community.

Historic dragonboat ladies:
It pokes fun at a local "institution" in an irreverent way, making light of an in-clique that takes itself sometimes a bit too seriously in an amusing, ironical way. Typically Lamma!

Who's posting the next photo, illustration, artwork, anything?

Rooster? I've always been a monkey.

Don't know how Dawn managed to take the photo as she's in the bottom left! Think a passer by took it, but I can't remember.

Hello Frazer,

The photo was part of Dawn's stash of dragonboating photos (sent to me by Andrew), so she might have goiven her camera to a friend or passerby to take this shot.

I put all of them into one of the several dragonboating photo galleries on the provisional Dragons website with photos from many people of the last 5 seasons.

As an ex-Lammaite yourself, you must have some "Typically Lamma!" photos in your own archives?

Beanburglar,
Typically Lamma? Or Typically Pixar? Doesn't this sweet-natured caterpillar turn into a butterfly at the end of the movie?
<HR>
More Typically Lamma! pictures, please!
Even a dog turd would definitely qualify!

OK so technically this wedding did not take place on Lamma, but it very well could have.

Do I detect some close family resemblance of this guy with your avatar? Eyes, teeth, hair style, the grin?

It's not you many years ago?
It's not your own wedding picture, I hope?
