Macau is my home town and all these photos bring special memories as I grew up in this small place about 50 minutes ferry ride distance away from Hong Kong. Macau used to be a Portuguese colony until 1999 and it is now part of China.

Hin, when I saw your shots about Macau, I felt my mind did travel thousands miles away - to a place where I'd love to visit one day.

In your pic, there's an old building with a Portuguese architecture. Had Macau ever been colonized by Portuguese? I'm just curious :)

Take care and BLESSINGS for you and your family.

Fantastic night photos. I always watch the motorcycle road racing on TV that's held every year from Macau.

Absolutely stunning night shots Hin. My hands shake too much to take night shots, I tend to get coloured blur with my fuji when i try.

Oh Hin Man - how could you ever leave such a beautiful place? Your photography is stunning, you should feel very proud of yourself!

I would love to go 'shooting' with you so that you could give me loads of advice and tips. :)

Your photos of Macau are beautiful at night with all the bright lights. The sights from Macau Tower must be awesome.

Hey Hin, I've been having difficulties in getting onto your site but I'm glad I've finally been able to. Your Macau shots are gorgeous and they are the best I've ever seen of Macau, on film and in person. GORGEOUS!!!
