Hi Luggers,
The air quality in Hong Kong is not good. This partly due to local 
conditions (cars, buses and trucks)
and factory pollution from the Mainland. Think London Fog from the 1950's. 
Indeed articles are
appearing in the Chinese press reporting on the progress that London has 
made in cleaning up its air.
Perhaps a prelude to China trying to do the same. A better example for China 
would be Japan but these
days the Chinese do not want to emulate any good examples from their Asian 
neighbour when they are
fighting about air space and territorial waters. Here's the picture of Hong 
Kong Harbour with two star
ferries crossing - one the Tourist Ferry (the older one) and other a regular 


Taken with the Olympus E M 1 and the 45mm f1.8 ISO 200 1/1600 @ f8.0.

Please look large.
C&C always welcome.
