Hong Kong is notorious for its long working hours among other countries and cities in the world. No matter how fast and efficient you are in a company, you can seldom leave the office before sunset. Yet, some people are much worse than that! They have to bring the unfinished duties home as home office. These endless duties have threatened the workaholic to risk. Is this the ideal life that you are expecting? If you are courageous eniugh, try to give yourself a little break; spend some time with nature and be with it. Let nature refresh yourself. Reflect upon the road you have chosen to drive on or you may have unexpected rewards in return. Your future could be much brighter than what you have now!

This time, my latest production "Escape" was made by the methods of Timelapse and Hyperlapse. On the one hand, it reflects the seriousness of long working hours and imbalanced city life of most Hong Kong people; on the other hand, the camera brings you to indulge yourself again with the stunning naturalscape. It can calm us down and let our minds relax for a while. These stunning views of Hong Kong perhaps make itself be the best and happiest city in the world.

So why don't let go yourself from the bustle and hustle then?

4K / UHD "Seen By My Eyes", Hong Kong 《我所看見的美麗香港》 Timelapse



Winning film of the 4th Finisterra Arrábida Film Art & Tourism Festival
1st Prize in Mountain Toursim
2nd Prize in Best Timelapse
2nd Prize in Places in History
3rd Prize in Natural and Wild

Over the past year, I have been to places away from the hustle and bustle city and taken pictures of Hong Kong’s natural scenery, the pure, natural side of Hong Kong. These thousands of pictures have been turned into this time lapse video. I want to show that we can still find these amazing natural scenery such as sunrise, sunset, starry nights and even clouds in our Hong Kong. Sadly, upon the increasing demands of urban developments, it would be a question of seeing such beautiful natural scenery of Hong Kong in the future.

Just as the lead-in “What is depleting is not the shutter but time” of my recent publication “The Beautiful Hong Kong Seen by Me” says, I won’t mind killing the shutter of my camera, as long as I can capture things that I see today as a review in the future.

A trip to Cingjing, Taiwan (Starscape and sunrise)



It’s my honor to cooperate with Hong Thai Travel Services Ltd to hold a tour to Cingjing, Taiwan. The tour is mainly about teaching the skills of shooting timelapse. Unfortunately, because of the tropical storm, Fung Wong, our effort was in vain for the first two days. Luckily, we could take some nice pictures on the last day. In the timelapse video, I have added a small part taken during my first investigation in May. The whole video lasts for 1 minute and 30 seconds.

Special thanks: 康泰旅行社, Columbia, Gitzo

Taken at CingJing, Taiwan. May & Sept, 2014.
