A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part VI, Tsim Sha Tsui

Tsim Sha Tsui's a place that I always visit at least once whenever I'm in Hong Kong on business. Probably because of the view there. I carried the same mini tripod I used at The Peak so the pictures are fairly sharp but it's hard capturing the shapes of all the bright neon light signs. Making my way to the harbour. Lots of roadblocks set up so...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part V, Victoria Peak

This is Central where another of the tourist "traps" are, Victoria Peak. I've visited the place before as a kid but didn't really appreciate the view at the time so having taken an interest in photography, I decided to go again for the view and some night shots. Dropped by Cafe de Coral for some chicken beef burger sausage rice . It's not...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part IV, Import Goods

Spent some time going around the stores to see if I could find some of the import goods I was planning to order online before I left for Hong Kong. Sogo is one of them at Causeway Bay which is a Japanese department store complete with elevator ladies and all the other customs you would expect from Japan after watching all those J-dramas and...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part III, Ngong Ping 360

The next place I wanted to visit was the Ngong Ping 360 cable car ride which leads to the temples and the Tian Tan Buddha Statue. It was already up the last time I was here but was very much plagued with problems so I never went the last time. This time I decided to go because it had new "crystal glass" bottom cabins and thought it should be...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part II

One of the things about Hong Kong is there are fairly much at least one single shopping plaza at each underground station. They all come with their own kind of interior decorations and most importantly, they're not filled with the same stores everywhere such as they would be in Glasgow with Curry, WHSmith, Game etc. And here is one of the...


A Stroll Around Hong Kong Part I

Been here for almost a week now and hasn't rained at all yet. Still trying to get used to the blazing sun and the heat which is around the 27C mark. First thing when you're in Hong Kong is to get yourself one of these "Octopus Cards" from the MTR, train or bus stations. As the name suggests, it has plenty of uses. You can use it for all the main...


Panoramic Photography

Took this photo yesterday, a day after the snow blizzards at the same place on top of a hill. Decided to give the Canon Powershot A720's "Stitch Assist" mode a whirl because the skies were so clear and I could see the Campsie Hills in the background. This helps locate the seams in the scenery but unfortunately, the camera limits you to auto...


A Stroll in the New Year's Snow 2009

Looks like the east of UK has been receiving some heavy snow - the heaviest in 18 years. And it's really hampering traffic and other public services. A few schools were closed in my area and of course, children are out sledging, throwing snowballs and building snowmen. It's about 30cm deep, fluffy powdery snow not the kind that falls on...


A Stroll Around Glasgow, Christmas 2008

Decided to take some photos of the Christmas festivities while out in town. Most of the ones you find here were taken over the weekend but because some of them didn't turn out so well, I had to use others I took earlier in the month. Prince's Square Located on Buchanan Street, Prince's Square is quite an exquisite place. I can't remember...


A Stroll About London for A Day

Been meaning to put up these photos ever since I got back from London where Makoto Shinkai appeared for a live interview at BFI. I had decided we would go down by an overnight train and also went for the London Pass so that we could do a bit of sight seeing while we were there. The pack includes a map, guide book, a travel pass for getting around...
