Tai O Fishing Town (大澳) - Hong Kong (Part 5)

In the month of December in 2013, I took a trip to China to visit relatives and to travel places and take photos. On this trip, I visited Jiangsu (江苏), Anhui (安徽), Hong Kong (香港), and Macau (澳门). I took many photos on this trip and I will be splitting them into many parts. I will do my best in these blog post to describe the photos, however due to the lack of map data for China (on Google) and my horrible Chinese, I may not be able to give you too much details on certain things. At the time of visit, the smog in China is very heavy. In many of the photos, you will see what looks to be fog or haze, but it is the smog (pollution) in China. Be warned, that the pollution in China is not at safe levels. I started coughing less than one week into the trip, and I did not recover until the beginning of March this year (2014). Many individuals in China had the same cough I got. If you haven't done so, you can view my vlogs here. I already posted all my vlogs (of the entire trip) on Youtube, but these photos will come out in parts.

12/2013,我去中国旅游。我去了江苏、安徽、香港、和澳门玩。我会把照片分成很多部分。我的中文没有那么好,我不能翻译所有的东西。 我去中国的时候有很大的雾霾。我咳嗽咳了好几个月。我这次旅游也拍了一些视频,你可以在这里看。

Full Resolution Photos and Prints: If you want to see full resolution photos or buy prints of any of the photos you see, they are up on my portfolio for viewing. To view my best Hong Kong photos from this trip, use this link. To view all of my photos from 12/20/2013, use this link.

Here is Part 5 of Hong Kong, China, S.A.R. (香港特区). I have photos from Tai O Fishing Town (大澳) for today with one photo from Tung Chung Waterfront Road.

这是香港第五部分。我今天有大澳的照片。

Here is the first photo from Tai O Fishing Town (大澳). The boardwalk the buildings are built on is very famous for this fishing town.

A very long pier at Tai O Fishing Town (大澳). I thought it would make a nice abstract.

 Dried fish for sale!

When I first passed her walking into the small town, I felt a bit self conscious getting a photo of her. Walking back toward the bus station, I saw her talking to another man. I felt a bit more comfortable sticking my camera up to them both for a street photography type shot. Turned out pretty nice in my opinion.

 I get back to the bus station to go back to main part of Hong Kong. Here is one final shot of Tai O Fishing Town (大澳).

Before getting on the light rail to get to to Wan Chai, got a photo of this store owner roasting chestnuts. Photo was shot near Tung Chung Waterfront Road.

These are all the photos for today. I hope you have enjoyed them. Next time I will continue with more photos from Hong Kong, China S.A.R. (香港特区). The photos for next time will continue with night time long exposure photos shot in Hong Kong. Please don't forget to share with your friends and family members!
