By the beach, Penang 2015

Georgetown, 2015

Being from the UK, I always struggle with the idea that a place can be hot enough to live outside all year round.

Here you can see someone fishing with a hand net, casting from the beach, probably for a restaurant which is just behind where I took this picture. 

 

A View of Hong Kong Island

Stitched PanoramaI never really left the UK until I was well into my thirties. Never felt I had the money, or to be honest, the inclination. But then, I got a job working overseas – and it has never really stopped since then.

This is a composite made from about five photographs of Hong Kong. All hand-held with a DSLR and then stitched together in software. And I quite like it. Part of me wants to crop the bottom of the picture off, but I like the light on the waves. I also like the two ferries in the foreground, with the warm light in their cabin. For some reason, I always enjoy going on the Star Ferry, particularly at night and watching the lights across the harbour.
