Photo of the day #87

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…

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.

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…
