Weekly Photo Challenge: Contrasts

Light and dark, tall and short, happy and sad — this week, share a shot that captures a contrast. – The Daily Post

I’ve been on my Hong Kong recap, so I figured I’d search up some contrasts.  They are in a lot of pictures and it just takes going back to find them 🙂

Color contrasts are possibly my favorite to look at.  Light and dark, colorful and dull.  It gives a picture life.

What contrasts catch your eye?

Hong Kong at Night

Hong Kong at night is possibly one of the most amazing things you have ever seen.  Its colorful and wonderful. You can tell right away that the appearance of Hong Kong is important to them because if not, they wouldn’t have a light show with music and all every night for its tourists at 8pm at the harbourside.  I went to that in 2009 already.  This time, I passed by it when I was strolling down the street and saw the flickering lights.

There really isn’t much to say but here is the night view of Hong Kong on both sides of the harbour.  One side is in Central where we find the Central Pier.   This was also where our ferry from Sok Kwu Wan dropped us.  The other side is in Tsim Sha Tsui where we can see the Star Ferry.

The building on the far left is supposedly currently the tallest building in Hong Kong

This one is definitely my favorite shot.  All the colours reflecting off the water makes it even prettier.
