Incredible Hong Kong architecture photography that makes the HK look surreal!
Photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze captured Hong Kong’s architecture in his Vertical Horizon Hong Kong architecture photography project. He’s made it into an 80-page book of photos from his 2012. The 26-year-old French photographer captures the city’s skyscrapers from vertical angles – all looking up. So cool!

Photography tips: How to capture these:
Next, let’s talk about how they shot these photos. These vertical angles were captured through a wide-angle Sigma lens with a 10 mm focal length. Unlike a fisheye lenses, he says a sigma lens avoids distorting the urban landscape’s straight lines.
Now let’s look at one facing downward instead. This below photo reminds me of the Guggenheim museum in NYC, but it’s actually Tai Hang.
I love all of these!
From French photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze:
Where’s your favorite skyline architecture that you’ve seen? Hong Kong’s skyline is certainly a candidate for me!

Most Impressive New Year’s Eve Fireworks Around the World
The New Year’s Eve fireworks celebration in Sydney (see below video) might just as impressive than my last two years of New Year’s.
Last year I kicked off my half year trip in Hong Kong for New Year’s Eve, and the year before I was in Taiwan. Both of their fireworks celebrations were impressive! Videos for all 3 are below:
That might even be more impressive than my past two years – check out the videos, with fireworks coming from the sides of a building, I was just across the harbor – aka Tsim Sha Tsui East Promenade. The Hong Kongskyline is one of the world’s best. I highlighted some of the Hong Kong architecture here. Happy New Year!

2009-2010 at “Tapei 101” – the largest building in Taiwan. At the time it was the largest in the world, but that lasted less than a month. Check it:
NYE at the International Commerce Center in Hong Kong. Such a cool fireworks display!
