The times we were free, I dumped my colleagues and ran out to the streets to take in the sights and sounds. I reckon I must have looked pretty tourist-y toting my Crumpler messenger bag and with DSLR slung around my neck.
But who cares.
Like every aspiring photographer, I was after only one thing - the perfect shot.
I have always loved taking pictures from the plane as the I enjoy the surprises that new perspectives bring to common things.
Tsui Wah char chan teng. Apparently a favourite supper haunt for HK celebrities. We didn't see any. Or at least none that we recognised.
Yung Kee is a must-go gastronomical destination in HK. The roast goose here is to die for! !
The Mid-Levels Central Escalator - the longest escalator system in the world. Takes pedestrians up and down the hilly streets of Hong Kong.
Lan Kwai Fong. Entertainment hub of the city. A smörgåsbord of people and cultures. I certainly could get used to hanging out here!
Took the Star Ferry to Tsim Sha Tsui just to snap a picture of this already world-famous view of Hong Kong Island. Electric!
The lobby of the place I call Home in Hong Kong, which I sadly hardly spent much time in.
Sweet dreams. Another new day beckons.
