Hong Kong Tour | The Yuen Po Bird Market, Mong Kok, Hong Kong

I keep avoiding getting into an electric powered taxi, a moody look at Causeway Bay from Kowloon and superbike looking scooters prowling the streets

I still remember the creepy Alfred Hitchcock thriller The Birds and whenever I visit the Yuen Po Street Bird Market I get a bit freaked out by these oddly human like birds, it is the way they look at you, it is a look that says I want to tear your eyeballs out.

The images are shown in a grid format and clicking on the thumbnail images will show them in full size, hovering over the bottom left of the image  ( in full size ) will give a description and click on the arrow to move along.

Enjoy the images.

A plug in car

Whilst it is true that we do not have many of these "Made in China" electric taxi's prowling the streets they do seem to follow me about and twice in the past week I have refused to hail them down, completely irrational of course, I am pretty sure they are not going to explode. 

gosh

At some stage I am going to have to embrace dusk and night shots, I do not feel as I have got the right camera for the job at the moment, even though the Olympus is known for it's low light capabilities. 

This image did come out just fine, it had rained non stop for 8 hours and it was just clearing up at dusk - this is Causeway Bay on the Island taken from Kowloon side.

A super scooter

I have developed a bit of a thing for scooters.. not that I would ever ride on of course but I have noticed that the scooters here are looking more and more like superbikes and this one looked very cool and the driver was happy to pose to for me but my hopes for him pulling a wheelie were dashed due to the bumper to bumper traffic. 

Yes, it really is a Government Building. 

The massive Government headquarters building with the massive Feng Shui hole, it is an impressive building when compared to our other Government Buildings but I can't help but think of the waste of space - given our issues with lack of space for housing (do not get me started on that subject) the Government could easily put up a couple of Public Housing blocks in this wasted space.. just a thought.
