big buddha in hong kong silhouetted against partly cloudy blue sky with trees in foregroundOn my way back from Vietnam in 2014 I had to travel through Hong Kong. I had about 12 hours between flights there so I decided to do a bit of sight seeing. The Big Buddha was pretty nearby so once I figured out Hong Kong’s confusing three different colored taxi systems I made my way there. I then pretty much forgot I’d taken these pictures and haven’t done anything with them until this weekend. Here’s the first, the Big Buddha in silhouette. If you want to get a sense of size, zoom and you’ll see tiny people just below him.
