2017-08-22  HONG KONG FROM VICTORIA PEAK

By |2017-08-20T19:10:10+00:00August 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+00:00June 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+00:00February 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+00:00February 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  🙂

2017-01-31 STREET LIFE IN HONG KONG

By |2017-01-31T19:13:00+00:00January 31st, 2017|Hong Kong|

If New York ist the “city which never sleeps”, the same is true for Hong Kong. Streets are very crowded, full of life, full of impressions on every corner, a steady flow of people which never stops. A real metropolis … here one typical scene of the streets, shot with a wide angle lens.

Often in Hong Kong sights, subway stations, observation points, visitor bridges end in a shopping mall, so there’s no excuse that time was tight and you couldn’t bring home some presents :-).

2016-11-02 THE TYPICAL BUSES OF HONG KONG

By |2017-01-10T20:15:22+00:00November 2nd, 2016|Hong Kong|

Many cities have their trademarks which are typical and you can only find there, one of those trademarks are the tram buses of Hong Kong. They are slim and have a first floor, inside its is relatively tight if you want to go upstairs …

2016-10-30 LAST HURDLE TO REACH VICTORIA PEAK

When you have reached that place, you are at the last hurdle to reach Victoria Peak in Hong Kong. Here the waiting before and the drive with the Peak Tram are over, you passed the walk through the souvenir shops and soon you are before the two big front doors to reach the observation deck.

2016-10-10 ESCALATOR IN MACAU

One typical style element of the big casinos, whether Macau or Las Vegas, are the big long escalators which brings you to the different floors of the big casino buildings. Often they are built and decorated with brass and glass elements.
