Picture of the Week: This trip has kinda stunk, and that’s ok

I’m in Hong Kong right now (where it’s Monday morning).  I felt like I needed to get out of Dallas for a bit so I spent some miles to head to one of my favorite cities for a quick weekend trip (my mantra: if I have a 3-day weekend due to federal/bank holidays, I’m usually out of the country).

The weather’s been awful and I had to deal with atrociously bad handling of the weather at Hong Kong International Airport that was so ridiculous that I ended up missing my first (of only two) hotel night and had to sleep at the airport.

But you know what?  That’s ok.  It’s 5:00am here, I’m laying in my bed at the Grand Hyatt about to make some coffee and attempt to go up to the Peak for sunrise.  Or maybe down to the Harbour.  I don’t know.  I’m flying a wonderful airline today in First Class so there’s still quite a bit to look forward to!  Way more importantly, I know that there are many suffering in the world and no doubt this post will come across as insensitive and #firstworldproblems-y.

This shot is about as clear as the view from My Spot up at The Peak got yesterday.  Not an impressive picture, but I guess the fog itself was pretty impressive, or maybe oppressive is the right word.

Foggy Hong Kong

For the photographers: Camera settings were 1/60 exposure, ISO 100, and f11.  I pushed the heck out of the shadows and killed the highlights in Lightroom then sent it over to a program called Silver Efex Pro by Nik Software to finish it off.
