Simply put,

I love carrying around a camera, and trying to get people to look into the lens.

Hong Kong

I rarely like vertical photos, and especially not my own.  I took a lot of vertical photos in HK.  My solution to this problem was simply to make them into horizontal photos.  Simple solutions are usually the best.

 

Hong Kong

One of the things I love about living in the Philippines is that I can go almost anywhere in SE Asia for the weekend.  Friday evening, fly to HK, Sunday afternoon, fly back to Clark Airport.  Usually, RT tickets can be had for under $100.  What the hell, sometimes I just go to HK for some dumplings and tea, and fly right back… that’s how I roll.

I’m still disappointed that the HK Gov tore down the Kowloon Walled City.  It was the most densely populated place in the world.

We were enjoying the view in Aberdeen, when this guy came along and livened things up.

HK street food is so good.

Hong Kong Travel Photography

I liked the food in Hong Kong better than the photographic opportunities.  But that’s just because the food is blow-your-mind amazing.

It was in the 60s at night and the 70s in the day.  This was my first chance to comfortably wear jeans in, like… forever.

We stayed in a hotel that should be avoided at all cost.  However, the location was money, and the price was right up my alley.

My inspiration for the trip was the Kowloon Walled City, which used to exist within the city limits of Hong Kong.  Unfortunately, government officials had it torn down in an effort to “modernize” the city.  I can only imagine what a wild place it must have been.  I would have loved the chance to photograph within it’s dense maze of streets.  It was once the most densely populated place in the world, and it is said that many of the residents would never see direct sunlight.  Before it was torn down, a team of city planners or something, from Japan, did a cross section of what some of the buildings were like.

In Hong Kong, every market has a specific theme.
