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,
