Nice lead in lines with the waterline Also the busy street photo is great. It shows the buzz and the vibes of the city. I’ve visited HK few times just before covid struck. Every time I was amazed how safe I felt in what’s without any doubt a big vibrant c...

The situation feels so normal. It could be strange for me if all be back normal again, and i went on living like Covid is still there. Bad times have also some special times. Brotherhood, friendship, together fighting a disease, helping each other to go f...

It's always quite interesting to see the huge contrast between nature trails and crowd city life in such small area. I was once in HK in 1994 and when I traveled from HK to Macau I traveled from UK to Portugal (stamps in my passport are whitness)... long ...

Hi. lovely photos. I am a frequent visitor to HK but have not been for some time due to travel restrictions. Could you let me know where the "countryside" photos are taken? One of them looks a little like Lamma. Thanks. Nick

A little known fact for visitors..

a little less than 25% of the total landmass is developed, 40% is dedicated to country parks and nature reserves. The rest is hilly and mountainous terrain. There are plenty of hiking trails and 'countryside' where one can escape from the city life. But i...
