Travelling to Hong Kong to shoot a wedding was pretty damn awesome, having a few days after to indulge in some sightseeing was the icing on the cake!
So elsewhere on my sight I will soon be sharing the wedding of Ricky and Josephine. For now I wanted to share some of the shots taken on the 3 days after that me and my photo buddy Matt had to explore in the amazing Hong Kong.
First a trip to see the Big Budda on Lantau Island. The MTR soon became a regular part of daily life, and we took this to Tung Chung station. Followed by a windy bus ride (the return journey back down the mountain was in no way too fast....)
Personally, after the hectic few days on arrival, I was very much appreciating the quiet and sun. At the top it was incredibly peaceful.
After a rather interesting high speed bus descent and some souvenir buying, we took the MTR to Central, the busiest part of Hong Kong right on the harbour, where we then headed up Victoria Peak. I loved the look of this guy...
Day 5 and we had read about the markets of Mongkok. 3 stops on the MTR, and we arrived at the big, rather gritty, colourful town. We got there a bit early tbh, and stuck out like a sore thumb! Walking through the food market was very real. No tourists, well except us!
The best way I could described Mongkok was that it felt a bit like Blade Runner! I'd loved to have spent more time there. In fact, we found it so interesting we decided to return later on
And then the last day was upon us. Always the worst day. I hate the end of a holiday!! But we planned a trip to Cheung Chau, a heavily populated small fishing island that promised a throwback and less tourism. We weren't disappointed
Just want to mention Matt a bit more here. He came along and was an amazing help for me on the wedding day, and caught some superb shots. We had a great time, plus his film work is incredible. Go look at his work on www.mattseye.com
