A night in Hong Kong

  • May 9, 2014 · 5:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The idea is to gather at dusk somewhere in Hong Kong and then start a journey to witness a night in the life of Hong Kong by shooting the architecture lights, the flow of people after work, the flow of cars slowly decreasing toward the night, the "night birds" starting their 'day' …. the clubers … anything that makes Hong Kong night life.

Then we will end up at Central Pier to shoot the sunrise in Victoria Harbor and finish our trip with a nice, hearty breakfast.

This meet up will last the whole night until morning. Bring some snacks and coffee!


I still need to work out where we will start and some other details.

Coffee, walking, eating, shooting and a lots of fun …. and for sure a lots of memories….


Last but not least: as this will last for around 10 to 12 hours, it requires some logistic. Please make sure you can really attend when you choose to rsvp 'yes'.

Thank you.

  • Nelson T.

    Sorry Chris, I am afraid I won't be able to attend this time, since I will be finishing work real late, have fun, and looking forward to the next meet up.

    • Christophe G.

      Hi Nelson, if you feel like having enough energy and need some fresh air we will be there all night long...

      May 8, 2014

    • Nelson T.

      lol, thanks but i think by the time I finished work, it will be around 3am... And btw, I find there's a place of wild life down south of HK, called "Cape D'Aguilar" never been there tho, but it seems like a nice place for landscape photography.

  • Pete

    Sorry just got back into work yesterday looking like I can't guarantee attending - sorry Chris!

    May 8, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Hi Peter, let's see if you have energy to attend. You never know what tomorrow is made of!

  • Maisie N.

    I would like to join after work around 8 or 9 as well. Could you please send me the itinerary as well? Thanks

    May 3, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Hi Maisie, please rsvp to the meetup as I will send the itinerary only to those who have registered. You will be able to join at 9pm at the meeting point. Thank you.

      May 3, 2014

    • Maisie N.

      Cool thanks!

      May 7, 2014

  • Jeanie

    I get off from work at 6:30 pm from Quarry Bay, where you guys are heading to, I join the group.

    May 5, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Hi Jeanie, I appreciate your enthusiasm but please be a little bit patient; all details wiln be sent after the closure of rsvp. :)

      May 5, 2014

  • Raji T.

    I will join you guys after work. hopefully can get off on time. will call you ron to check where you will be.

    May 5, 2014

  • Alexandra

    I want to join but don't think I can last until sunrise. A good place to consider is Kennedy Town with quite a busy night life these days.

    1 · May 5, 2014

    • ron

      Christophe. The location is not fixed yet.

      May 5, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Yes, I know. It will be sent with the itinerary.

      May 5, 2014

  • Jeanie

    Can I join if I leave around 11:30 pm?

    1 · May 3, 2014

    • ron

      No problem, Jeanie. Not everyone can last the night. They'll be dropping like flies at 2am! hahaha.....

      1 · May 4, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Yes Jeanie you can join even if you leave at 11:30. You will have done half of the trip.

      May 4, 2014

  • Jeanie

    Thanks Ron! After you post the location, will do. RSVP.

    May 4, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Hi Jeanie, the location will be send only to those who rsvp.

      1 · May 4, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Please rsvp before tuesday night, thank you.

      May 4, 2014

  • Nelson T.

    Is it possible if I join after work? Around 11:30pm?

    April 21, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Yes, definitely! I will send the itinerary with the timeline 2 days before the meetup.

      April 22, 2014

  • Christophe G.

    Hi everyone, I change the date to 9th of May.

    1 · April 5, 2014

  • Roger P.

    I am certainly interested. Friday 2nd is not best for me but 9th would be OK. Like Peter, I think 10 or 11pm thru dawn would be about right. There are LOTS of interesting places over Kowloon side including the night and wholesale markets (that I have always wanted to shoot!).....

    1 · April 2, 2014

    • Pete

      Fruit market is amazing at circa 3am...

      2 · April 3, 2014

  • Raji T.

    Me too Chris. If date is not fixed yet can we do it the following week if more ppl can make it? Would really like to do this.

    April 2, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Yes, why not. I just pick up the 2nd of May for the moment as it will give us more time to recover as tuesday 6th is off. But if it is more convenient for the majority to do it the week after, we can do it later. Let's see .

      1 · April 2, 2014

    • Pete

      A Friday night would work best ... Best mix of party goers going home and business waking up if you post pone to 9th or 16th then I'll be in!

      2 · April 3, 2014

  • ron

    Lots of holidays this April. Can even do it on a weekday.

    April 2, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Yes but there is already a meetup during easter weekend. Can be done on the 30th April but I think in May the weather may be a little bit better.

      April 3, 2014

  • ron

    Christophe thought only a few people will join up for this shoot. He'll be surprised that so many will actually attend. Can't wait for it!

    2 · April 2, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      Yes very surprise, especially as it will last the whole night! And definitely we will have fun and remember it ! any ideas to make it funnier is more than welcome!

      April 2, 2014

  • Pete

    Christophe - I would be well up for this but I'm out ok HK that weekend. I have done something similar as was planning repeating. A couple if tips dusk is too early better start later may be 11 if going through the night. Plan a route near McDonald's they open 24hrs and sell coffee....

    2 · April 2, 2014

    • Christophe G.

      The route has not yet been fixed. But when it will, I will set some rally point and time.

      1 · April 2, 2014

    • Pete

      No worries - Christophe just thought I would throw a couple thoughts from experiance. Shame it on that weekend.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
