Trash The Lens

Journeys and photos

Hong Kong Noir

On my last day in Hong Kong I went to Lantau Island to see the Tian Tan Buddha. I took the MTR to Tung Chung, changed to Ngong Ping 360 cable car and went up the mountain. The higher I got, the denser the fog (smog?) became. Up to the point, where at the top of the mountain the visibility was limited to no more than a few meters. Literally, standing at the base of the Big Buddha statue I couldn't see the top of it! But there is an upside to such weather as well: it makes for eerie and atmospheric photos.

I generally don't do street photography, but sometimes the circumstances are such that it would be a shame not to take a shot.

Believe it or not, this isn't a night shot. It was taken sometime around noon! (2016-04-14 Lantau Island, Hong Kong)
