Just Before the Sun Goes Down . . . . . . . .

Watching sun rise and sun set is my favorite pastime.

If you are in the city part of Hong Kong, then gazing towards to the West of the Victoria Harbor probably gives you the best view without having to travel any further.4896163873_687f31ac34_o

Here is a picture taken in the fringes of the city, on the Kowloon side, just before the sun sets.

I like the sun down to such a level and the silhouettes of the trees.

Please enjoy!

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror ( Night Scene from the Window )

This week’s photo challenge is Mirror.

These two photos were taken with a smartphone behind the window glass.

Both show reflection of some sort.unnamed (1)

The first picture definitely show glare in a few places.

There is also reflection of the distant buildings in the Victoria Harbour too.unnamed

The second picture was also taken in the same building but with no reflection from the glass.

We were dining there, in the restaurant, up on the 38th floor, somewhere in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.

Rain, Rain, Go Away

This year has already seen an unusual amount of rainfall.

As we sipped our tea on the 102 level of the building, we were dismayed by the heavy rain beating against the window pane.CIMG7847

This marred the otherwise fantastic view – this is the view from the tallest building in the area.

The rain drops have smeared the windows, making the views look uninviting.CIMG7848

As somebody with a craze for taking pictures, I wouldn’t mind taking photos of these; recording that the Lord has given me another blessed day.

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!

 

 

Weekly Photo Challenge: Now (Hong Kong)

This week’s DP theme for the Photo Challenge is Now.

I have a series of pictures here taken with a similar background – the skylines of the Hong Kong Island with the hills behind and the Victoria Harbor.12342677_808222855971893_5968102527660572133_n

All pictures have also in common the Star Ferry harbor crossing vessel.

The first picture have been take in the 1950s, the second one in the 1980s.1074828_564517866928007_1891007504_o

The last one was taken Now.

It can be appreciated from the photos the tremendous change that has happened to the shoreline / skyline of Hong Kong Island.DSCF2015

I didn’t take the first two photos, they were downloaded from the internet. As the source cannot be ascertained, I am unable to ask the photographers for their permission to upload. The credit of these photos belong to these unknown photographers.
