INFRARED HONG KONG: YIU YU HOI




Happy Lunar New Year from Korea. I ushered in the year of the dragon by visiting the doctor and getting up to date on my vaccines. Lots of upcoming travel = fun. Getting five shots in one day = not fun.

I celebrated last year's Lunar New Year with a trip to Hong Kong. For five days I walked around that city mesmerized by the incredible architecture, amazed by the bright lights and bold colors of the neon signage, and enchanted by a record-holding giant Buddha and a silted fishing village. All that being said, it was a very different place than pictured in Yiu Yu Hoi's infrared photos of Hong Kong. I didn't think Hong Kong could be any more enchanting until I saw these photos.
