I loved all of the bright colors on this boat... saw it during our boat trip around Sai Kung.

The Seven Star lake in Zhaoqing, China... very beautiful and serene. It's a nice break from the "hustle & bustle" of Dongguan and Guangzhou.

The "ginormous" OYC hotel as seen from the outside on a damp morning (looks a little creepy). Prior to taking this picture, I got bitten by 15 mosquitoes and had 7 motorcycle drivers offer me a ride around the lake.

Clocktower in Kowloon, Hong Kong. Thought the blur from car headlights was cool

Hong Kong skyline... one of the most breathtaking skylines in the world.

The view from the self-proclaimed '7 star' OYC Hotel (aka mosquito hotel). It's actually quite a breathtaking view when it's not too smoggy. However, the OYC is just a super weird hotel. It is either completely filled with people or completely empty. Apparently, it hosts some government functions (which causes it to get full). When it's empty, it feels like a reenactment of "The Shining"... because it's just so massive and creepy. A few of the creepy things listed below:
-In order to get to the gym area, you need to go through a giant/underground maze that leads you past a "cavernous pool" (a pool designed to look like you're in a cave). When you get to the end, they have a large cafeteria set up that is always empty.
-The breakfast buffet has a giant fish tank in the middle of it... with a woman swimming in a mermaid costume.
-There's a slight mosquito problem in the rooms... because the maids are kind enough to turn off your air conditioning and open your doors when you leave for the day (which can also cause your sheets to get damp if it's humid enough outside).

Kind of a silly photo... it shows all the awesome "treats" I get when I travel to China. I have no idea what any of those things are, but some actually taste quite good.

Another image from the temple in Zhongshan, China... very beautiful scenery (some photoshop effects added)

I thought it was fitting that since I was in just landed in China, I show a picture I took of an old Chinese temple in Zhongshan... messed around with Photoshop a bit on this picture.

Sometimes the best treasures are hidden at the "end of the road"... (Barra de la Cruz, Mexico)

A lovely evening in Boston... sailing boats out en masse! I really liked the reflection of the white boat on water. Taken during the final days of summer in 2010.

Going back into my photo archives, I found this amazing sunset picture from Playa Montelimar in Nicaragua. This place was amazing...

I'm not always the most patriotic of people, but I thought this picture came out really cool. Was taken at the lighthouse on Point Judith. I just really liked the colors and the brightness.

Blinded by the light!.. setting sun in Boston. During a certain time of year and a certain time of day, the sun creates a unique glowing sensation off the John Hancock Tower.

Another picture from hurricane Earl. Winds were super strong offshore on Saturday. In this particular shot, we have a longboarder dropping in and holding his line... I think he made it. I really liked the colors in the water as well.

Chasing the remnants of hurricane Earl in Rhode Island. Some really good surf in the first half of the day... kind of got killed by all the wind. Here you can see the strong offshore winds at Point Judith... and one guy doing the "rock dance" to get out.

The North Church in Portsmouth's city center. A beautiful/sunny day in the port's mouth.
