    The neon signages of Hong Kong are disappearing changing the iconic street views of this city forever. In fact, since my last visit 6 months ago, 3 of my favourite signs have already been taken away including the famous ones around the Koon Nam Wah Bridal sign. These particular signs in this picture are up at one of the oldest dim sum restaurants. Neon signs are the reason I fell in love so much with the city, but at least we will have photos to document one of Hong Kong's most iconic features.

    The neon on lights caught my eye as well, Steve. Also this is a perfect moment as the two young women in the photograph are wearing bright yellow dresses that create a contrasting color to the neon glow from the signs. Excellent work here.
