There's no shortage of beauty in Hong Kong, and its architecture is no exception. For years, I've watched Chinese dramas and various videos in which the Hong Kong skyline is used as B-roll footage. Of course there are the few buildings that you always see in photos and videos of Hong Kong, but there was one in particular that I was extremely intrigued by.
After pestering a bunch of my relatives for information about the building to no avail, I could not figure out where this building was, or what it was built for. Fortunately, after hours of scrolling through Google Maps, I actually found the building on Street View. It was the HKSAR Central Government Office in Admiralty.
Once I found out where it was, I knew I had to go visit in person. It was beautiful. The sheer scale of the building took me by surprise, and the whole area was blessed by a quietness that felt very peaceful. The view of the surrounding skyscrapers also helped to add to the ambience.
Of course, I had to plan a shoot here. So, I reached out to Sarah Watts, a model living here in Hong Kong. A couple days later, we found ourselves in the middle of Tamar Park nearly melting in 90+ degrees weather.
Here are a few of the images we created.
