1881 Heritage: Day and Night

2011-09-10

There are places where photos taken at different times of the day or of the year can end up looking completely different – 1881 Heritage is such a place.

I like walking around Tsim Sha Tsui in Hong Kong with my cameras in my bag and 1881 Heritage is one of the places that I just keep visiting when I am in the area.

Located on Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, 1881 Heritage used to be the headquarters of the Hong Kong Marine Police. It was built 120 years ago with unique Victorian architecture, which epitomizes its rich colonial background. It was declared a monument by the Antiquities and Monuments Office in 1994. Recently, it was refurbished into a shopping mall, a heritage hotel, and an exhibition hall.

Since it re-opened in 2009, 1881 Heritage, with its integration of old and new, has given the city a touch of style that is so different from the other modern buildings around.

People usually only go there to take pictures during festivals such as Christmas. During Christmas, we will be attracted to the very beautiful Christmas tree there. But besides Christmastime, 1881 Heritage is also a great place for taking photos during other times of the year.

1881 Heritage looks so different in daylight and at night.

Its architecture itself is very special and what’s more is that the decorations or exhibits there will be changed from time to time.

On different times of the day or of the year, 1881 Heritage will probably look differently in your photos. I like to shoot it using different films and cameras. Since going there is not very difficult, when you visit Hong Kong, besides just dining out or going shopping at Tsim Sha Tsui, why not drop by there and see if you can capture its unique atmosphere?

Address: No. 2A, Canton Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong
