What a difference the sun makes. It’s literally night and day! (Ha! Sorry, I’m in a strange mood today). Here are more photos from my Hong Kong trip. This time taken on the return trip on the ferry at night. To see the same scene but in the day time click here!
How amazing are cameras now? This was taken with the Fuji XE-1. With the boat moving and no light, no tripod. Just shot with a very high ISO and with me bracing myself as much as I could to stay steady. No, I’m not sponsored by Fuji (but I’m open to it, wink wink) I’m just genuinely impressed.
On my last trip to Hong Kong I rode the ferry for the first time and completely fell in love. There’s just something utterly calming and romantic about being on a ferry. Or I may just have that impression from years of watching Grey’s Anatomy. I especially love that it was a cool and cloudy day. Some would say gloomy, I say mysterious. I do enjoy cloudy days.
Feeling extra touristy, we took a spontaneous trip up Victoria Peak- the highest overlooking view of Hong Kong. After a taxi ride, a train ride, and a multitude of escalators we finally made it to the top. And it was freaking windy! Word to the wise: a dress is not the kind of outfit you want to plan on a trip to the Peak. Unless you want several Marilyn-esque close calls with a bunch of total strangers. Stand to close to the edge and this happens
But the view was well worth the chill.
