Hong Kong portraits

Countdown of HKSAR 20 begins!

20 is a beautiful age to be. China Daily has put together a cluster of videos that look back on the last 20 years. Here is the first of the video series.

What would make the best generic shot of Hong Kong people?

Sitting around tiny tables, chatting over steaming cups at the neighborhood cha chaan teng? Ladies in elegant qipao posing for an impromptu photo shoot by the roadside? People riding the city's never-ending escalators, including, ostensibly, the world's longest at Mid-levels? Or playing with pet cats who seem to be rather smugly aware of their special status in the city?

We had a hard time choosing from this compilation of Hong Kong portraits. Pick your favorite and let us know!
