Hong Kong: Cloudy Days

So, way back in September, far before their fight for democracy/self-rule got crazy, Tim and I went to Hong Kong for a long weekend... 

Our first afternoon there was quite grey, cloudy and rainy, but made for some dramatic skyline shots as we took the Star Ferry across Victoria Harbour, from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon: 


Looking back towards the business district on Hong Kong island:


Once we landed on Kowloon, we wandered along the Avenue of Stars, the equivalent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame, where Tim took the most reluctant, half-assed Bruce Lee photo ever: 


It wasn't very late in the afternoon, but the clouds were so dark that the building lights started going on:


We snuck in a couple more harbour-side selfies before the clouds opened up, the rain poured down and we were "forced" to take shelter in a bar:


More on our Hong Kong outing coming soon!
