Hong Kong offers endless photo opportunities. I could spend weeks just walking around and capture what is going on in this bustling mega city. Over the years, I have collected my favourite Hong Kong pictures which I would like to share with you. I am sure they will make you want to come and visit Fragrant Harbour!
Hong Kong’s “Flat Iron Building” in Causeway Bay
This picture was not taken in the 1940s but in 2016. It is one of my favourites with the butcher selling his meat produce on the street and the guy in the trench and hat walking by.
View of Sai Kung, a seaside village on the mainland’s East part. It is popular for its seafood and junk (boat) trips.

Mail boxes are made by hand by the owner in this street stall shop in Sheung Wan
After some time, you barely notice the Ferraris, Maseratis and Bentleys anymore. But a pink limousine still stands out.

In a city like Hong Kong we barely notice the ground because we constantly look up.
