Photos: Postcards from Hong Kong

I recently came across photos from my brief visit to Hong Kong back in September 2011 and it made me feel all nostalgic.

I visited Hong Kong twice during my 4 years in Beijing and loved it. It was such a contrast to Beijing. Beijing is land locked, dusty and geographically boring. Hong Kong is by the sea, vibrant and surrounded by lush green hills.

I was there for four days on my second visit and just spent that time wandering about taking photos. Here’s a some of my favourites (- the full album can be seen on my flickr page).

  3. I really love your pictures! I’m very jealous too, as I didn’t really do Hong Kong justice with my photos when I was there last year. Great shots! 🙂

    • Thank you for yoru kind words! I actually felt I could have taken better shots in HK actually. I was still getting to grips with my camera and photography in general (still am!). Your blog looks great, I will be stopping by soon.

      • Oh I know the feeling, I was pretty much working out my new camera on the go while I was in Japan. I don’t really have a great technical understanding of photography either, but I hope to change that.

        Glad you managed to check out the blog too, it’s massively appreciated. I’ll be reading plenty more on here 🙂

      • Yeah, self teaching seems to be the way a lot of photographers start. I try to set myself little challenges when I visit somewhere, like perspective or colour challenges. It’s a bit geeky, but it gets me thinking!
