Thx! If you go one day plan a summer visit when you have the chance to have clear skies!

A few more. Went up SKY100, the observation deck. It's tough to get shots because of the reflections especially to photograph HK island side.

N.B. I always post very high res images on my flickr site.

That is just... stunning. You're a great photographer and I love your style!

I might use one of these as a wallpaper on my desktop but it's hard to choose just one.

Thx guys! Let me know if you want a certain desktop. I'll send you a version without my web adress!

My flickr site contain very high res versions always by the way. Many images are several shots stitched together.

Probably the most known spot but I still love it. I asked my girlfriend to marry me here. A 15 minute walk west from the busy Peak tower.

About time for an update! N.B. much higher res versions are on flickr.


An old street in Shek Kip Mei Kowloon. Most likely to be bulldozered in the near future by the over-industrious Urban Renewal Authority.

A typical elevated road that snakes through the buildings on HK island. The light on the right comes from central HK.

Some nice unaltered pictures would be great too. Hong Kong is certainly the epitome of skyscrapers.

Time for an update.

Kowloon is getting more vertical all the time. The horizontal blocks are being replace by tower flats.

The verticalisation of Kowloon by xavibarca, on Flickr


New sports grounds pop up everywhere in the city. Sometimes in unexpected areas such as an industrial area.

Made in Hong Kong Part 8: Industrial playground by xavibarca, on Flickr


The residential (left) and the industrial (right) often sit oddly side to side in Hong Kong. In the old days I guess the workforce lived close to their work.

A view from another new park towards the Western Hong Kong skyline, the Sun Yat sen memorial park. The first waterfront park on the island.

The Portal by xavibarca, on Flickr


Old architecture in one of the poorest neighboorhoods of Kowloon. On the right a social housing block.
