From the streets of Hong Kong

The streets of Hong Kong present a beautiful blend of levels due to the geography of the island, modern public transport, trams and high fashion stores. This week, have a look at some shots from the streets of Hong Kong. 

Around us the world is always on the go. I prefer stopping somewhere in the middle and soaking in the beauty. Try it to feel what this little practice brings to life. It tells you to breathe consciously and let go. To look around and smile. To stop, experience and then move ahead. On the journey that you had set out for.

    Wonderful captures of the narrow streets and taller than tall buildings!

  2. Nice shots. The narrow alleys beneath the tall buildings, the roads winding in a way that it looks it ends at a building all look so mysterious.

  3. Never been to HongKong, so thank you for the peek into everyday HK. I say everyday HK, because there are so many touristy pics, that are the same thing over and over again, and while they are beautiful in their own right, random clicks like this reveal the unexplored shades of the city. So, thank you. 🙂

      Thank you for saying that. I think professional and experienced photographers find beauty that no one can find and amateurs ones like me, just look around and grab a picture of whatever catches our attention. 🙂 Thank you!

    I like black and white pictures (more than coloured ones) – they bring out the character of the place.
    You do have an eye for great angles, Parul! Loved the shots! <3

    What a great message in your post. We often miss the small things in life sifting through the bigger ones. Missing the beauty that’s right in front of our very eyes 🙂

    Beautiful clicks, Parul! Stop, savor the beauty and move on, but how can we move when presented with such magnificent sights! 🙂

    I loved the use of black and white photography in this series. Brought me right back to vintage photos of my native New York City although the look was different.

    I love these black and photos Parul! And stopping in the middle of the rush to watch a busy city go by is absolutely priceless!

    Beautiful shots. And I’ll try stopping in the middle and see the world go, just to experience what you described 😊

    Gorgeous shots of Hong Kong.
    I agree, it’s an altogether different feeling to stop, marvel at the beauty of wherever you are, let it etch in our mind and then move on.

    There is something about black and white photographs. Nothing looks so nice or pure. Almost raw beauty 🙂

  19. Sulekha says:

    Some amazing clicks, the lack of color brings out the character of the place. The stark reality is equally beautiful.

  20. Nancy K. says:

    Great shots – I love when cities are shot in black and white. It’s like they’re supposed to be done that way.

  21. Cee says:

    Wonderful photos or my which way challenge. Thanks so much for playing.
