Hong Kong Dispatches: End of Days
Posted on April 18, 2011
Okay folks, my time in Hong Kong is winding down. Yesterday was my last full day of shooting, so I decided to hit the most touristy part of Hong Kong. I made the journey up the mountain on the Peak Tram to have a look at the Hong Kong skyline. I have to say, I was surprised how much fun I had enduring the relentless trinket shops and watching as multitudes of nationalities lined up to snap themselves in front of the world renowned view. It was well worth the effort, and I ended up spending about three hours on top. After my descent I made my way back through Central, made an odd snap or two, then headed to the Foreign Correspondents Club with David McIntyre, a local photographer and someone I’ve known since 1993. When I walked in the door I said to myself, “I know I’m going to know someone here.” Five minutes later who should come walking along but David Hume Kennerly, LA-based photographer and winner of the Pulitzer prize…among his many accolades. We were able to hang out, have a drink and talk about…..Hong Kong.
So, the contest is now down to a vote. Then entire voting process is new to me, but it is raging as we speak. If you fancy a vote for me, have a look here. CATHAY PACIFIC VOTE HERE
