Beauty And The East

Cover for P&O Our World Magazine

That classic postcard view of Hong Kong with a junk boat was in my mind long before I visited the city for the first time. It reminds me those old Chinese movies I used to watch when I was a kid.

These ancient Chinese vessels once used for fishing throughout Asia are now a symbol of the city and used merely for recreational purposes but somehow I didn’t see many when I was there. I was specifically looking for this view from the Victoria Harbour waterfront in Tsim Sha Tsui so my first morning in the city I headed down for a walk along the harbour and this boat was the only one I could see! Perhaps it was too early but Hong Kong was only a stop over and I wanted to make the most of my 3 days in the city. I couldn’t take many photos as the boat was fast but I was pleased with this one.

The image has been licensed this season by P&O Cruises for the cover of their Our World Magazine. I was so happy to receive it last week, it looks great!

Similar view at night during the famous Symphony of Lights. the nightly multimedia show that involves more than 40 buildings on both sides of the harbour
