Hong Kong Memories

My first impression on my very first visit to Hong Kong was that of a very large, urban area teeming with people.  But it didn’t take me long to discover that there were several different aspects of Hong Kong, some of which were very surprising.

I did not expect to find the scene above — it almost appeared to be a view from some tropical island.  The photo was actually taken at Repulse Bay in Hong Kong.  This image is made from a slide taken in 1987; I used Photoshop to clean the image and remove some of the damage.
