Victoria Harbour & the CBD, Hong Kong... a view from Tsim Sha Tsui.

If you're interested, more pics of the harbour can be found here.:-)

I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

This is no less great than yesterday...you just spoilt me by showing the mono first...which I favour by the smallest margin.

@Ted: Thank you Ted!! Personally, I find it a dilemma to choose between the two - I like the subtle beauty of the b&w but the city splendor and cloud formation of the colour version are quite appealing... Decided to keep them and show them both - a happy dilemma.:-)

Have a great Sunday!

@Vink: Thank you Vink!! it's quite a vantage to view the CBD and the harbour. I only managed to get there through the help of a friend who arrived some two hours before the sunset. It's amazing how the place was crowded with people in the evening, local and tourist...

Cheers,
