Central Ferry Pier

Here are my pics taken at the new Central Ferry Pier. This was also the first SSC meetup that I've ever attended. It was really great meeting forum legends: Rachmaninov, chisinchai, Kaitak747, Aboveday and hkskyline.

I expected hkskyline to be a rich businessman with a private jet or airline company... and that's not far from the truth .

Thanks to Rachmaninov for organizing everything.







This is the widest shot I could take... compare this one with the photo taken by chisinchai!


The pier where every object is fake...


... except for the plants.












If you look really closely, you can see Rach + Kaitak747 in the red and green shirts!!!




I'm leaving in a day or so and probably won't be able to return for a few years.
Next time I come back to HK will be in the distant future. Nina Tower will continue to have green mesh and ICC will be the new tallest building. I will definitely try to catch up with you guys again. Hopefully we can take a new group picture there!

I've got to attend one of these things one of these days. I can't imagine what hkskyline is like in real life.

BTW, great pictures, skybean! What kind of camera do you use?

I love your night shots, Skybean. Keep them coming...I can imagine being there right now.

How long have you been in HK? I believe you've had more than my measly two weeks...which flew by.

Sorry, I can't post any people pictures. But really, the forumers are a good-looking bunch.

I use a Canon S3 IS. Nothing special really. I really bought it for the 12x zoom and image stabilization. It should be really cheap now.. the next version S5 is out already. During the time I bought it, it was only slightly more expensive than most other 3X zoom digicams that you can buy. So I thought it was a good investment. It serves me quite well, but sometimes I wish I could swap lenses for wider shots. Wide angle adapters are too expensive.

Thanks for your compliments. I've been here for 4 months! I'm leaving tomorrow
