Hong Kong 2016 – the urban landscape.

If given the right weather conditions with some broken cloud and some wind, and armed with tripod and Big Stopper ND filter then Hong Kong would be a great place for architectural photography ….unfortunately we just had grey overcast conditions with no wind.

Especially on Hong Kong Island there are many unique buildings such as the Lippo Building left and above, or as it is sometimes called the “koala bear building” because the design resembles koala bears climbing it ….well, maybe to homesick Aussie expats perhaps.

Luckily the weather improved for the last few days of our stay as my girlfriend, a devout Buddhist, wanted to see some of the temples scattered around Hong Kong and if you have ever seen a Chinese temple you will know that they can be very colourful and certainly look better when the sun is shining so the next post will be a lot brighter !

The grey skies did not matter after dark though, when the buildings put on their glad-rags and neon robes for the nightly light show :lightshow-1.jpg
