Say ‘so long’ to Hong Kong

When this article is posted (at 0001 UTC, 2 July), my scheduled flight will have departed Hong Kong, southbound for Singapore. Located at a mere one degree of latitude north of the equator, I’ve a few more days of sweating it out in the tropics, before I venture farther south and pile on the extra fleece to encounter southern winter.

I’ve had a great month of June in Hong Kong, including a short sidetrip to Saigon, Vietnam. Thanks to my sister and my brother-in-law who provided shelter, travel tips, food, and conversation, and thanks to the new friends I’ve made in the last few weeks. I leave H-K-G with great memories of the city, the surrounding area, and of course, the food.

“Bye bye, 香港!”

I made the photo above on Hennessy Road near MTR Causeway Bay station on 21 June 2012. This post appears originally on Fotoeins Fotopress (fotoeins.com).

      Jen, it seemed like yesterday I arrived in Hong Kong, and “suddenly”, a few weeks later, I’m leaving! I’ve gone to Singapore for a few days to have a look and get some eats.

      Hi, Stephen! When I visited five years ago, my stay was a mere week. Even after four weeks, there is still a bunch of sights in the area I would’ve gone out and seen. I really should try to get a China visa the next time so I can visit Guangdong/Kwangtung province. As you likely remember, it’s easy to spend hours just walking through the streets for many photographic opportunities. Thanks again for reading and commenting!

      Hey Henry … I always feel like I’m just scratching the surface of HK, even after multiple visits. I think as photographers we look at places differently than most. Like you said, just wandering the streets with no agenda at all can produce some of the best photo-ops. makes us want to go back again and again…

      Thank you, Xandré! It’s a simple truth, it’s always the simplest of truths – time goes by very very quickly. 😉
