Thomas Birke photography.

Photographer Thomas Birke has some amazing shots of HK on his website. He seems to pull so much light and color out of the night–I wonder if that is how he takes the pictures or something he does in post-processing? His goal is to capture urban existence by showing 1,000 people or their traces (windows, laundry, etc.) in every picture. I love how crazy most of HK’s streets are.

Of course, Victoria Harbour never gets old.

And I have a real obsession with shipyards
I think one of these shots would be a great going away gift for someone leaving this great city. Check out his site for more great shots of other big cities around the world (I love the ones he did of Paris especially). Thanks to John Lawler for the head’s-up.

  1. Hi! I happen to stumble on your photos online and I’m in love with them (since I was brought up in Hong Kong, it really brings back memories). I was wondering if I could use one of them for my art project? šŸ˜€
