Weekly Photo Challenge : Curve

This week’s DP photo challenge is Curve.

An immediate picture comes to mind is a picture taken at the Kai Tak Cruise terminal, Hong Kong.DSCF0827

This new cruise terminal is a big show off of the use of curves in the architecture.

Whichever angle you look at it,it embodies many curves which are aesthetically pleasing.DSCF0823

Also appended here is a photo taken of the same curved arch, underneath which shows a part of the Victoria harbour.

The Other Side of Hong Kong (Kowloon) 4

No sure everyone know that Hong Kong is the collective name of three parts:

* Hong Kong Island

* Kowloon (peninsula)

* New Territories ( and the outlying islands)DSCF0835

Each part has its distinctive character.

I rarely photograph the Kowloon side.

However, my recent visit to the new Kai Tak Cruise Terminal afforded me a chance of shooting the less known and popular part of Kowloon – Kowloon Bay, from the roof top of the new cruise terminal. This is also the first time  I photograph this area.

The set of pictures here are taken of the architecture of the terminal itself.DSCF0827

According to Wikipedia – Kai Tak Cruise Terminal is a cruise terminal terminal that opened at the site of the former Kai Tak Airport.DSCF0837

Its completion date was delayed into 2013 due to re-tendering. DSCF0830Following an international competition, Fosters & Partners was chosen to design the cruise terminal. The new terminal opened on 13 June 2013, and has the capacity to berth two large 360-metre (1,180 ft) long vessels, which carry a total of 5,400 passengers and 1,200 crew, as well as anticipating the demands of cruise liners currently on the drawing board.DSCF0823

The Government announced that it would focus on the development of a new cruise terminal at Kai Tak development area to help Hong Kong become a regional transport hub for cruise ships. DSCF0843

It was built by Dragages Hong Kong Limited and site formation was completed by Penta-Ocean Construction Company.
