Hong Kong Skyline

Hong Kong April 2013

This photo was taken on my recent rip to Hong Kong.

I reckon that only 7 or so of the buildings in the front row were standing when I first visited HK in 1980. Those 7 would be (left to right) Hutchison House, the low rise building in front of it which was part of HMS Tamar, the Urban Council building, Princes Building, the Mandarin, the Connaught Centre and the GPO building.

Hong Kong’s skyline continues to change but the effect remains spectacular, even if the view of the Peak is gradually disappearing behind taller and taller towers.
