Hong Kong

The internet was down earlier this evening so this post is going up a bit later then usual. I've done a load of washing, had dinner and done the washing up. Jamie Oliver is on the telly doing Venice and I'm on the laptop.

I thought I'd post some images from the last stop on my trip - Hong Kong. Hong Kong is a very popular tourist destination for Australians, so it wasn't my first visit and it probably won't be my last. I have a little tradition of staying somewhere really nice the last day of my holiday and chose the Mira Hotel. The hotel is suitably glamorous and after 2 weeks without a laptop, the flat screen interactive tv/pc had me in heaven. I was so jet lagged I was awake all night so it came in handy.

I took the Star Ferry over to Hong Kong and then caught the Peak Tram for some skyline views of Hong Kong.

I went on a walk around the Central District of Hong Kong which is where the following images were taken. I hiked up the hill to visit the Man Mo Temple.

I love the dust motes in this picture.

Along the way I visited the antiques district of Cat Street and Hollywood Road plus Ginseng Street of course. I photographed lots of interesting things, many of which I'd be reluctant to consume I might add.



I walked back down to Central via the Graham Street Markets.

At times it's a little hard to believe that you're in the heart of the financial capital of Asia.

I've always enjoyed street photography and no I don't ask people if I can take their photo. I observe from afar and quietly take my photo when the time is right. When is the time right? Somehow instinct tells you.

The past week I've received a few sweet emails from my blog readers. Thank-you for your kind words of encouragement. It's lovely hearing that you enjoy my images and my little stories. 




It's been a long week and the weekend is now beckoning, so I'll close here.

I'll be back next week so until then,

Jillian

  1. Hong Kong is one of the most outstanding cities in China. I think it is not a destination that most choose for a long term vacation. The hustle and bustle of Hong Kong makes most vacationers over the edge after a few days.
