As my time in Hong Kong winds down, it seems like I've been here for months instead of almost 2 weeks. A lot of my coworkers have started to leave- and several of them are heading for exotic vacations in Japan, Thailand, Bali and other places. But I'm happy to be heading home soon. Moorpark isn't too exotic, but it's where I belong!
Here are a few photos I took today, and this evening. At lunch I walked down to the harbor, hoping that the sky would finally be crystal clear for photos of the skyline. It was lovely, but alas, not all that clear.
I've loved neon signs forever... I remember taking black and white photos of neon signs back when I was in college. They seemed so nostalgic and kind of tacky, but I found it interesting how the signs were constructed with all the letters connected together. I took a couple of neon sign photos when I was back up on the sky bridge, it gave me a great bird's eye view of many of the signs. I liked the photo on the right, and how the neon looks kind of luminous as it overlaps the sky.
After work, I took the train to Kowloon Tong, and spent a couple of hours in the Hong Kong LDS temple. It's a gorgeous building, and inside it's so serene and beautiful. I wish I were a better night-photographer. I did my best, but the temple was a lot more beautiful than my photos show.
So that's about it for day 11, day 12 will be my last
day in Hong Kong. See you tomorrow!
