    Hong Kong has always been a city that moves in lightning speed. The first challenge I face every morning is to squeeze myself into workplace lift while people inside are trying to destroy the close door button. The picture shows the lookout at Fei Ngo Shan in eastern Kowloon. It is a place where my wife and I like to go after work so we can seize a short moment to catch our breath from all the hustle and bustle. The silence up there is a huge contrast to the glimmering city lights below.

    Story 1

    I love that you and your wife make the time after work to "seize a short moment to catch [your] breath from all the hustle and bustle." I feel that energy in this frame, and I love it Kenneth. All day we spend going from task to task, and to find a place to pause, reflect, and recharge is important. I love that you recently made this photo, three days before you uploaded it. I love how peaceful this frame feels, as you and your wife are far, far away from the chaos of the city down below.
