- From Victoria Peak -
 

This is the amazing view from a mountain in the western half of Hong Kong Island. It is also known as Mount Austin, and locally as The Peak. With an altitude of 552 m (1,811 ft), it is the highest mountain on Hong Kong island. 

It seems to stand in front of a huge beehive, an anthill, radiating multicolored lights and glows.

Skyscrapers and buildings stretch to the horizon as far as the eye can see.A jungle of concrete, steel and electricity.

- Hong Kong Island -
 

I'm on the southern tip of Kowloon Peninsula, in short, the part of Hong Kong, which is on the mainland.

That in front of me is the wonderful night view of Hong Kong Island, dozens of futuristic skyscrapers stand next to each other in front of the

waters of the strait.

- Architecture -
 

Architecture is a wonderful photographic subject, can be used alone or as part of a more complex composition, can be "a tool" to tell a story or simply focus the Interest of the public on the play of light, shadows and shapes it creates.

- Street View -
 

This is exactly the view from my little room I rented during my stay.In the heart of the city, the streets are always full of people, even when, as now, the weather is gray and it's raining.

- "X" -
 

Hong Kong is covered with skyscrapers and huge residential complexes full of small apartments, the price of real estate here is very high. If you leave the main roads, you can get lost in a maze of narrow streets and passageways between the tall buildings.
