Cemetary in Hong Kong

I thought this cemetery was interesting.  I’m used to seeing sprawling cemeteries with lots of grass between the headstones.  In Hong Kong, they are very compact and terraced.  I like all of the lines in the photos.

Victoria Harbor, Hong Kong

Hong Kong – Cheung Chau Island

Esther and I took a ferry to Cheung Chau Island.  We ate at what the guidebook called a local seafood place (we agree, seemed very local and cheap), then rented bikes and rode around a bit.  It was HOT and we were just soaked with sweat.  There are no cars allowed on the island, so the “road” is really just a sidewalk and the hills were horrendous!  I wasn’t sure if I was going to make some of the hills in the heat.  Some of the interesting things we saw there: grown-ups riding bikes with tiny training wheels, the steepest and most crowded cemetery I’ve ever seen, and the steep, winding sidewalk/streets of the town itself.

Hong Kong – The Peak

The Peak has the infamous view of Hong Kong.  Wow – it’s been a year since my only other trip to Hong Kong.  Here are the Peak photos from then.

What do you think of the fisheye lens?  It’s totally a novelty lens, but I bought a big new camera bag so I have room to lug around a couple more lenses than I usually do.

Hong Kong – Stanley

Last week I spent four days in Hong Kong.  My friend (we went to school in Sweden together, then visited her in Belgium and last summer she came to Shanghai) Esther’s sister lives there now, so Esther came to visit and so did I!

These photos are from Stanley, which is known for it’s market.  We weren’t that impressed with the market – it seemed similar to any other Chinese one!  We did find one shop with very unique clothing, original designs silk screened by the owner.  We both bought clothes there.  The waterfront was nice though.
