Weekly Photo Challenge: Shine ( Through Clouds )

This week’s photo challenge is Shine.

This is another view from Kowloon Bay, on the Eastern side of Kowloon, Hong Kong.

The sun has set but still sending some of its colorful rays up, shining through the clouds.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Local ( Kowloon Bay )

This week’s photo challenge is Local.

The harbour of Hong Kong can be viewed from many vantage points, but tourists stick to touristy places on either side of the city area of Hong Kong.

Here is a view from the seaside promenade of Kowloon Bay in Kowloon.img_6955-3

It was a typical Summer night when people will come out to the seaside, taking a rest and gazing towards the Hong Kong Island side.

Some residents may play their guitar and sing their songs too.

Just across the bay is the newly built Cruise Terminal and in the backround are the buildings on the Island.

A typical Summer’s night!

Another View from Floor 102

We were disappointed when we arrived at the restaurant on level 102 as we couldn’t see anything from the windows on account of the rain and the condensation.

So, we just enjoyed our lunch.

The weather turned better after finished lunch and I have my mint tea.

The mist seemed to be rising from the sea ( Victoria Harbor) as I went near to the window to get some shots.CIMG7843B

The mist seemed so thick and fantastic as I aimed my camera towards the Ocean Center and the China Macau Ferry Terminal on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong.

The view was so surreal!

 

 

The Cruise Ship and the Terminal

I know I will never be able to take such a picture or process it to such quality.

This picture was taken at Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon in Hong Kong.

It shows a liner berthed against the Ocean Terminal which was built in the 1960s.12132434_1190803077603497_6253951385515784263_o

The sun was setting and it cast a golden film on the Victoria Harbor.

You can also see the Victoria Peak behind the terminal and some buildings on the right.

The picture was taken by my class mate YM Chan; this serves as an inspiration for me to take better photo!
