Celebrating My First Century Of Posts With Some Hong Kong Photos

I've been thinking about what to do to celebrate the 100th post for my blog and I decided to share some photos taken on my trips to Hong Kong. I just some picked out and grouped them into themes.

I've really enjoyed the doing the first 100 posts and hope to carry on for many more!

Incredible images. The closest I've ever came to Hong Kong was Chinatown in San Francisco, but one day I hope to get there...

Well done M. on 100 posts, we look forward to next 100. You should be proud of the blog, it's an excellent body of work and I stop by every day to brush up on my HK Cinema - its essential reading...

Great photos. The skyline never gets boring, does it? I liked your side-street shot from Macau as well.

Congratulations on hitting your 100th post!

(Fellow blogger secret: I'm about to hit my 800th and I've timed it so that it falls when I'm back in HK!)

Wes, I hope you get there, I'm sure you won't be disappointed although it changes so quickly, many areas are almost unrecognisable from when I first visited.

Thank you so much for your incredibly kind words, it means a lot to me!

Glenn, I could sit at the harbour for the rest of my life and never be bored. Thank you for your encouragement, I hope to still be going long enough to get anywhere near 800.

I'm so excited for you Glenn, re your forthcoming trip. I'll have everything crossed for you! Hopefully you will have time to keep posting from HK?

Wow, those are some amazing images you have taken, H! I scrolled through them more than once. Beautiful. Congratulations on 100th post!

venoms5, Thanks, it's really cool of you to say, I really appreciate it.

Congratulations on your 100th post -- and that's a lovely photo-essay. Where did you take the photo you captioned "One of the more bizarre sights you may see in a major city"? I actually don't recognize that area! :O

YTSL, The Whampoa ocean liner in amongst the apartment blocks is in Hung Hom and is actually a shopping centre! It's worth the trip just for the novelty.

Thank you for your lovely comment.

Hi again A Hero Never Dies --

Ohhhh, the boat! I didn't noticed it until you mentioned it -- and of course re the Whampoa! :D

Great photos of the ifc in Central. I hope you aren't planning to jump off the ifc like a certain billionaire with black cape and pointed ears...

No plans to do that at the moment anon, I'm more of a Bank of China person anyway! Thanks for your comments.

Aaron said...

Great pics! Looks like you had a heck of a trip.

A hero never dies said...

Aaron, the pics are from 3 or 4 different trips, but yes they were all amazing trips.
