Hong Kong, December 2011

I had a brief visit to Hong Kong in December. I tried to capture some of the awesomeness of the place.

These photos are from my Flickr stream. I will post some more once I have done a little bit of editing.

HK is my dream destination, it must be hard to make a brief trip there, but you captured it well!

Thank you, Ribarca. Actually, your "Concretely Vertical" Hong Kong thread is absolutely amazing work! I was looking at your photos before going, getting all inspired!

I was in Hong Kong for only three days, and on one of those days I did a quick pop to Macau. So my visit was very brief, unfortunately. But I guess that what I most loved about HK was how alive and intense it felt. I was blown away before my taxi even reached the hotel. HK was an incredibly vibrant mixture of different cultures and times. So much to see and to take in at every moment.

The only thing that I was slightly frustrated with was the amount of fog, even though I was expecting some. HK is a real photographer's paradise but during my visit at the end of December, visibility was somewhat limited. Not on the ground level, but at Victoria Peak etc. You could barely see the Kowloon side in the afternoon when I got up there. Things got better at sunset though, and then it was really impressive.

Anyways, I'm hoping that I could have a chance to spend a bit more time in HK some day in order to explore that incredible place further.
