There are a few days left I think to see my piece in this Smithsonian. I know it was up for the whole month of July, but I don’t know about August. I’ve gotten a bunch of emails from people that saw it – thanks for those. I haven’t seen it myself there, but it is supposedly right inside the main hall upon entry into the museum. If anyone can give the exact location, I would appreciate it. Here is the featured shot that is there:
Daily Photo – Hong Kong from The Peak on a Summer Night
I had a long day waking up at 5 AM to take a series of subways and trains up to Shenzen for some meetings. I was hot and sweaty and in the kind of meeting clothes that aren’t great for being hot and sweaty in. Anyway, I can’t complain… I made it back to Hong Kong just as the sunset, so I headed up to The Peak for a shot.
In the foreground is Hong Kong and on the far side is Kowloon.
I found this on the way to Hong Kong… so I stopped for a quick shot while security eyed me with suspicion… But they have those cool TSA badges that makes them look all official and everything, but I just ignored them.
I made it to Hong Kong just as the sun was setting today (July 28th). I headed over to IFC2 to have a drink and watch the sunset. I was lucky enough to catch an unexpected fireworks show across the bay right after the sun went down, so I snapped this shot for y’all.
I know it is strange to post fireworks shots two days in a row… but… hey it’s kinda cool I guess to see awesome fireworks in two different cities.
One of my fireworks shots is currently hanging in the Smithsonian, so if any of y’all are around DC, be sure to stop by and see it.
This is a place I passed every day when walking from my apartment to Mike’s apartment while in Ukraine. BTW, they now seem to get pretty agitated when you call it "The Ukraine"… just stick with "Ukraine", and it will avoid you some dirty looks, which are not the good kind of looks to get from Ukrainians.
