2018-10-19   HONG KONG VIEW TO THE SKY

By | 2018-10-18T20:56:44+00:00 October 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+00:00 January 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+00:00 January 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+00:00 January 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+00:00 December 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. 🙂

2017-11-11  HORSES RACE TRACK IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-11-10T21:14:26+00:00 November 11th, 2017|Hong Kong|

The stadium of a famous sport in Hong Kong, Horse Racing. I shot that photo from the high deck of a RedBus line motorbus. I used every stop at a red light or traffic jam to get shake-free photos. It’s one of my preferred city tour expeditions, sitting on the open air deck with my camera in hand. Walking a dozen miles every day with the photo gear gives you pain after two or three days, even packed with mirrorless cameras, like the Sony E series.

2017-08-22  HONG KONG FROM VICTORIA PEAK

By | 2017-08-20T19:10:10+00:00 August 22nd, 2017|Hong Kong|

There are two classical Hong Kong motives; one is the skyline shot from the Ferry Haven, often with a red junk on the sea, the other the skyline from Victoria Peak, both in the day- and night shot variations. What to do? Indeed, I shot them too, the classical skyline photos.The light was OK, some smog in the background, I used HDR to make it more pop.  🙂  However, Hong Kong is a metropolis and joy for every photographer.

2017-06-05  STREET PHOTOGRAPHY IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-06-02T19:18:51+00:00 June 5th, 2017|Hong Kong|

The never ending flow of people in the streets of Hong Kong brings you to street photography automatically. It’s a city with great buildings, neon signs, a high dynamic atmosphere. I had my Skechers with the memory foam sole on; the streets give your feet a run for their money  🙂

2017-02-26 DIM LIGHT IN HONG KONG

By | 2017-02-24T22:09:54+00:00 February 26th, 2017|Hong Kong|

If you hear Hong Kong, many think about the world famous skyline, the old junk boats and the ferry. For me there are also those little Chinese shops in dim light which make this city. They offer excellent food or spices, health products, dried fruits and cool drinks.

2017-02-12 HONG KONG FROM ABOVE

By | 2017-02-10T21:44:18+00:00 February 12th, 2017|Hong Kong|

I was very happy with my hotel room on the 27th floor. Normally I don’t like to shoot through window glass but here it was the only way to catch these views. Most notably there were no bad reflections on the glass therefore nobody is thinking about that it have been shot this way  🙂
