The Majesty of All Under Heaven, Hong Kong Museum of History, Hong Kong

Posted on October 14, 2012 by


Come for a night at the Museum with photography addict Alanala and see the humbly named Majesty of All Under Heaven.

The special exhibition of the Terracotta (The Eternal Realm of China’s First Emperor). It’s part of the celebrating programs of the 15h anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong S.A.R. It features 120 artifacts from China.exhibition listAlthough photography without flash is allowed, I do not feel it’s appropriate to photograph with my X2 (especially I was with friends). So I left my X2 in my bag, instead I pull out my Galaxy S2 phone. Knowing this series has nothing to with street photography, I treated it as a personal photo diary.the exhibition listA personal story
With photography in mind, it’s already become part of my life. It doesn’t matter what camera I use. The crappy quality did not bother me from shooting from the beginning to the end. It was an experience to remember.exhibition listMoreover, I just do not see myself could financially fund any of my trips abroad any time soon in my life. My family do not like the idea of traveling abroad especially my mom. It’s being considered a luxurious activity. exhibition listAll my friends have traveled all over southeast asia. They either travel with their friends or family. It makes me so darn jealous whenever someone travel. I just can’t do anything but say ‘have a nice trip and get me souvenir!’. Lame?the exhibition list

I visited the museum at 9pm. I’d never visited any museum this late. It must be the special program. The rest of the museum section was not open anyway. It was a nice little visit and hangout with friends for the night.the exhibition listthe exhibition listthe exhibition listexhibition list

Thank you to Alanala for these amazing pictures, you may not be able to travel at the moment but you are in an incredible city! The main reason I created this blog was for people to share their experiences – especially for those who are unable to visit. The Google Art Project is another amazing resource…
