ruinas de la catedral de san pablo, macao, macingosh photography
The famous Ruinas (de la Catedral) de San Pablo in Macao. Probably one of the most coveted photographic scenes there.

Even though I only stayed for one day in Macao back then in 1997 I had a feeling that the general ambiance was totally different to Hong Kong. Whilst Hong Kong to me was Asian through and through I sometimes felt like being somewhere in South Europe when strolling through Macao. I wonder if it still is like that today.

Lantau Island, Hong Kong, macingosh photographie
Another one from my 1997 trip to Hong Kong and Macao. That day we paid a visit to Lantau island with its famous ancient fishing village Tai O. I remember having some kind of crab or crawfish for lunch which looked like a giant woodlouse. Very special but yet very good.

Sha Tin racecourse, Hong Kong, macingosh photographie

Oh dear, another photo of the day forfeited yesterday… I’m actually plundering my archives so here comes some really old stuff.

Today’s capture dates back to 1997 when I visited Hong Kong and Macao. Hong Kong already went back to China about half a year earlier and Macao was soon to follow.

The only camera I had with me was my big, bulky medium format dinosaur the Mamiya Universal Press and two lenses (100mm and 150mm as far as I remember). This shot above was captured at the famous Sha Tin Racecourse. Unfortunately I only had one afternoon left to go there and when I finally arrived, I had to learn that the races would happen next day. So, no horse-racing action shots for me.

More of this to follow during the next days… Hope you enjoy.
