2019-03-29 HONG KONG AFTERNOON

By |2019-03-28T18:57:14+01:00March 29th, 2019|Hong Kong|

“What did you like most about HongKong?” Walking through the streets, looking in the shop-windows, eating some street-food and drinking an ice-cold coconut-drink.” In Europe, we always get news about Hong Kong being the most expensive city in the world. I can tell you; you can visit there and need less than thought. We had a Sushi restaurant near the hotel, where we got sushi at about $6 where we all were replete. And the green tea was free.

2019-02-16  HONG KONG PIZZERIA

By |2019-02-12T22:03:49+01:00February 16th, 2019|Hong Kong|

Some pizza in Hong Kong? The diversity of food corresponds to the variety of little restaurants along the streets. I stayed with Asian food. Since I live relatively near to Italy, I can get pizza more often anyway. 🙂

2019-02-13  HONG KONG NIGHT TOUR

By |2019-02-11T21:24:03+01:00February 13th, 2019|Hong Kong|

The city of Hong Kong is a mixture of a high-tech extravaganza, modern infrastructure, and traditional Chinese shops and restaurants. Everyone can discover exciting places for themselves. I decided to take photos from different perspectives but wanted to preserve the Hong Kong touch.

2019-02-05   STREETS OF HONG KONG

By |2019-02-04T21:37:20+01:00February 5th, 2019|Hong Kong|

I loved the action movies that were playing in Hong Kong. The streets with the small shops and Chinese characters, the triads in the dark streets, the Far Eastern atmosphere. This scenario between modern skyscrapers was one of my cinema highlights.

2019-02-04   THE THIRD VENICE

By |2019-02-03T19:29:01+01:00February 4th, 2019|Hong Kong|

The original Venice is in Italy, the second Venice in Las Vegas and the third Venice, shown on the photo, is in Macau. There you can see the canals, Italian restaurants end even gondolas with gondoliers. The sky is always blue, the weather still fine and no flooding or dried out canals — nearly the perfect artificial city.

2018-10-19   HONG KONG VIEW TO THE SKY

By |2018-10-18T20:56:44+01:00October 18th, 2018|Hong Kong|

In Hong Kong sometimes a sky-spot is only possible surrounded by skyscrapers. With my camera adjusted I was on the road and caught the city-scenes. I think the town is more crowded with higher buildings than New York, so you don’t have to search too long, for dramatic photos.

2018-01-31   THE NEW VENICE IN MACAU

By |2018-01-28T16:17:08+01:00January 31st, 2018|Hong Kong|

A Venice where no flood disturbs the sightseeing, no empty canals give a wrong view, no rain hinders you from walking around. Gondoliers ship you on smooth water, which is always blue, no corrosion on the buildings. This little Venice exists inside a prominent hotel in Macau. They have done great work to replicate the bridges, houses, and canals.

2018-01-29   ASIAN GIRLS WAITING AT THE HONG KONG FERRY

By |2018-01-27T15:20:21+01:00January 29th, 2018|Hong Kong|

I used the waiting time at the Star Ferry Pier to shoot some photos. These two little girls were interested in my photo habits, at least they looked at me during photographing. I captured that image with the glass front of the ferry building and the two girls behind.

2018-01-25   HONG KONG STREETS

By |2018-01-24T20:19:06+01:00January 25th, 2018|Hong Kong|

Exploring the streets and watching the hectic was my “hobby” in Hong Kong. I like the colorful billboards with the Chinese scripts and the hundreds of shops from ginseng roots to electronic equipments. For relaxing a had dim-sum and a cool aloe-vera drink.

2017-12-23   TRAFFIC IN HONG KONG

By |2017-12-23T18:17:31+01:00December 23rd, 2017|Hong Kong|

Footbridges are a good idea, I have seen them in many Asian cities. They keep the traffic flowing and reduce the traffic lights for the cars. Standing on a footbridge, I shot this photo with the traffic in Hong Kong. Handheld, because my son didn’t want to wait before placing the tripod. 🙂
