Photo of the Day – Hong Kong Ferry – Hong Kong, ChinaThe Ferry between Hong Kong island and Kowloon is a fantastically efficient service and has some incredible views of both sides that make Hong Kong the incredible metropolis that it is.
When you go to Hong Kong, do not miss out on the Ferry and be sure to not only take it several times, but to also use it morning, noon and night. At each time of the day you’ll have a different take on your surroundings as the sun highlights different areas for your eye to wander into.
Photo of the Day – City on the Hills – Hong Kong, ChinaThe Hong Kong skyline is unparalleled in the number of buildings that shoot up from the edge of Kowloon Bay to the steepest parts of the nearly mountains that make up Hong Kong island. I remember taking the tram up to the top and being blow away by the sheer number of buildings. And I’m not talking about small 30 or 40 story buildings (ha!), I’m talking about 60+ story buildings!
Photo of the Day – Streetside Butcher Shop – Hong Kong, ChinaWill and I have posted over 200 photos of the day so far this year. Lately, I find myself spending lots of my free time combing through the thousands of photos that we have taken all over the world in order to find the very best to share with you.
There is definitely one theme that I have taken away from this repeated exercise. The easiest place to find beautiful and thought provoking images is at the colorful outdoor markets found in every city across the globe.
I took this photo while walking through a small market on the Kowloon side of Hong Kong back in 2010. Please take note of the pigs feet hanging behind our lovely butchers head
