HONG KONG

- "A Hundred Day's of Wonders" -
 
 

 - in celebration of Hong Kongs reunification with China, July 1st. 1997.




Here a series of pictures from Hong Kong which will NEVER be seen again.
On July 1st. Hong Kong was reunited with China - - -
I simply had to go back to Hong Kong as soon as possible after that date in order to see for myself, and to record this unique event with my cameras.
