Today, I took the ferry from Hong Kong to Macau, and spent a few hours taking photos –one of my favorite pastimes.
The new, looming over the old
This post has nothing to do with web strategy, but I’m on vacation until Oct 1st. Today, I did one of my favorite activities: exploring and photographing a foreign city.
Macau is radically transitioning, there are construction cranes on every corner, it’s aiming to be the next Las Vegas (The Venetian is just like the one in Vegas), with the amount of casinos being built (over a dozen, I’m told) it will certainly be a major destination for global travelers.
Macau is one hour west of Hong Kong via hydrofoil, you can walk most of the island by foot (I walked at least for 6 hours), and only took a taxi twice –to change islands.
I use $300 dollar Canon camera, and some of the images get processed in photoshop, I have a shotgun type of photo strategy, I take a lot of photos, and a few turn out pretty decent. Storage is so cheap, that I’d rather take a lot of photos, and capture my experiences.
If you like these photos, see my posts from my China and Japan trips last year:
Update: I found a summary article from NYT on Macau’s Vegas aspirations.
