Roaming Hong Kong – Causeway Bay on a rainy night

with 3 comments

The Causeway Bay area of Hong Kong is one of my favorite areas to roam, especially at night.  It’s a youthful area so there’s a certain amount of energy and buzz that makes it an interesting area to photograph.  And when you factor in neon signs and lots of people, well, it gives you a lot to shoot.

Last night, there was the threat of a typhoon and of course, accompanying the typhoon is usually rain.  Rain is great for enhancing photos, whether by naturally saturating colors or delivering greater doses of reflection.

On this night, I walked from Causeway Bay to the adjacent Wanchai and then back.

Photos taken with Nikon D700 and Nikkor 24-70mm f/2.8 zoom lens.  Photos shot in RAW with little or no post-processing.
