Hong Kong photo journal


I always hate when blogs have tons of photos and then follow up with a numerical list describing each photo like I should scroll back up and remember each picture and match it to the number? Not that this is any easier to understand, but here's a regurgitation of some of my favorite parts in paragraph form..

I'm convinced Hong Kong has the most perfect skyline, from anywhere you see it or against any color background the sky decides to dream up that evening. The streets are kept but with enough grit, graffiti, and character as to keep you on your toes and your camera out around every turn. As with the food, I'll note the photos above are of contemporary mooncakes (get it? harhar) and what looks like an army of mochi ice cream (get at me). I also had to include the picture of a painting I saw in Forest Bird, a coffee shop/boutique in Central. "I cut off Hermes' feet today, because I want him to stay..." It's one of those pieces so haunting you can't get it out of your head. Anyway, just have to draw attention to the little girl stuntin'. Her dad was taking a picture of her and she started pulling out all these Gisele Bundchen moves.. future blogger in the making? ;)

  16. I only stayed there for about 4 days while visiting Korea but that was probably enough time spent there haha. It was fun but I can't imagine myself being there for a long period of time!

    However the food and shopping was AMAZING and I took a pic of the same mochi counter as you!
