1. The lyrics of this song paint a picture of a man catching the glimpses of a woman from afar and then follow her image with his eyes.
The lyrics go on to describe the woman in some details and what the man imagine or wish could have happened between them.
So a fuller meaning of the song title is: Following her image with my (or his) eyes.
But since this is too cumbersome, I will settle for the two words translation Her Image.
2. Her Image ("倩影") was composed and sang by Kenneth Choi.
Ken Choi was considered both an idol and talent singer - I think he did have the looks for being an idol.
Ken Choi was involved in one of the most infamous incident of Cantopop of the 1980s and that stalled his music career for 25 years.
In 1985, Ken Choi was co-host of the most important TV music show in Hong Kong: TVB's Jade Solid Gold.
During a segment of an episode of the show, Ken Choi criticized Leslie Cheung with the words: A moment of brightness may not represents eternity ("一剎那光輝未必代表永恆").
I remembered watching that TV episode and still have some vague memories of its contents.
Leslie Cheung was than at the peak of his career and he and Alan Tam were dominating Cantopop.
Ken Choi made his infamous comment in that TV segment after some reporting about Leslie Cheung's concert by another reporter.
Since the TV show was broadcast live, there was no opportunity to correct the mistake.
Most people thought that Ken Choi made the comment out of jealously and that it was an inappropriate and unprofessional comment for a TV host to make.
As far as I am aware, Ken Choi never did apologize for the comment.
This incident lead to the downfall of Ken Choi's music career.
There is an English saying that God helps those who help themselves.
But Ken Choi was not one who helped himself.
After struggling for another few years, Ken Choi basically disappeared from Cantopop.
I am happy to see that Ken Choi has been trying to make a comeback since 2011.
He is a talented singer and I hope he will treasure this opportunity late in his life.
