The sometimes impossibly crowded buses in Hong Kong

The night view of Hong Kong from the Peak, more of the Hong Kong obsession with fancy vanity car number plates and the one legged "busker" in Stanley.

Is that the death stare or does she fancy me!! (yeah right!!)

My car spotting thing has thrown up a peculiar bit of info - Bus no. 23 on Hong Kong Island is absolutely packed most of the day despite there being a bus every 8 minutes or so, I have a fair bit of knowledge of how the buses operate here and no doubt the Transport Department has refused the Bus Companies request to increase the frequency of the buses (and will cite studies and statistics)... we had the same problem with bus no. 962 and 962b where we live.

Perhaps the inept Transport Department officials should actually get on a jam packed bus once in a while and get a first hand experience of how horrible it can be.

I have yet to really start taking night images with my Sony RX 1r, here are a couple of the fabulous night time view of Hong Kong from the Peak - for best results one should really use a tripod, these are not bad for a handheld shot.

This number plate basically translates to certain easy life, wealth and long life

Lovely car with a great vanity plate

Brilliant, simple brilliant!

Actually he is not one legged I just timed the shot to perfection!

A photographer was taking this shot so I thought I would as well

This attractive and rather fit young lady managed to stop traffic and zip across the road - she could have just as easily been squished.

Another lady gives me the look!


I do private walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 38 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.

Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....

I am available at very short notice, I get many last minute bookings and may well be available even if you arrive in Hong Kong without making plans! so please check my calendar, if it says I am free then I am available to do a tour!! Simply send me a message for a prompt reply

...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.

All images taken with a Sony RX 1r camera - it produces amazing images!
