Photographer's Note

Today marks 10 years since I arrived in Hong Kong. So I went back to Sai Ying Pun - the eastern district of Hong Kong Island where I lived and worked in my first 8 months - and took a few shots.

I wasn't sure about Hong Kong in the first few weeks, but I thought that even if I didn't finish my 3-year contract, I could at least have a nice 3 month 'holiday'. Ten years, one wife and two kids later - and I'm still here. I should have checked the fine print! ;-)

Des Voeux Road West is famous for all the shops selling Chinese preserved foods.

This shot was taken from the tram stop in the road. If you follow the tram lines, you can see the other tram stop in the distance. The MTR doesn't come this far eastwards - at the moment - so buses, trams and minibuses are heavily used.

Tech: Cropped slightly. Resized and sharpened.

(This photo was originally 800x600 with a 5 pixel border - but it was over the allowed size. So I cut out 789x589 and it just made it under the wire.)
