I had the opportunity to visit Hong Kong for a brief period of three days in 2010, during a video shoot. Despite the short time, I was able to take a photo walk through the city and capture its unique beauty and character. These photographs showcase the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong's streets, the vibrant nightlife, and the stunning skyline. I also managed to capture the city's blend of Eastern and Western cultures, as well as its traditional and modern architecture. It was a special opportunity to capture the city before the Chinese government started to exert more control over it. These photographs offer a glimpse of Hong Kong's vibrant energy and unique spirit from a time when it was still a semi-autonomous territory.
