Hong Kong

Looking back over my files from 2011 it seems that as well as visiting Prague I also took a trip to Hong Kong. While I had visited Shanghai a few years earlier this was my first trip to Hong Kong. Here are a few shots from around the city.

Winter in Prague

Flights from Tbilisi to Prague tend to arrive at odd hours of the day – either very early or very late. Perhaps things are better now, but when I visited back in 2011 my flight landed at around five in the morning. I arrived at my hotel before six where, needless to say, my room wasn’t ready. I dropped off my carry on, pulled out my camera and went for a walk. It was 29th January. At the airport it was -14° C, in the city it was a balmy -11° C. Brass monkey weather. I had just arrived from Tbilisi where it was a tropical 6° C. Still, on this, my fifth trip to the city, I finally got some pictures that didn’t consist mostly of tourists.

I’ve taken a lot of photographs of this scene so if you think you’ve seen this before, you have.

I’m not generally an early adopter. I prefer to wait until the reviews are in and the price has dropped. Yet when Sony announced the original RX100 I decided to get one as soon as they became available. I’m a fan of small, serious cameras and have been ever since I pickup up a Panasonic LX3 ten years ago. I sold the RX100 a couple of years ago because I was finding the slow lens a little limiting and as I – and my eyes – got older, I found the absence of a viewfinder frustrating. Sony corrected both those failings with the RX100iii and subsequent versions but they were even more expensive that the original RX100. I may yet buy another RX100, with the RX100vA very tempting.
