The GeoFoodie icon is a photo of one of the red light covers you find in all the markets in Hong Kong.  You can read more about them in the post “The colour of everyday life“.

The photo on the Where is Home? page was taken in Hong Kong, in a place where you can pick your live fish from a tank and have it cooked. Alas, and probably thankfully, given the pollution in Victoria Harbour, the fish itself has travelled from elsewhere.
