An Article for HK Time Out: Chasing Down The Dragon

Back in March 2011, I had the good fortune to be asked to pen a short article for Time Out HK magazine. The topic, as you may have guessed already, was the various locations used in Enter The Dragon for which my blog had already established itself as a useful online source of info. Anyway, once again for those who missed it and because my stuff never seems to make the cut for the online version, I have attached a scanned version and with Time Out’s permission, you can view it here for yourself.

As usual the graphics guys at the magazine made me look as though I actually know what I’m talking about and they made good use of the photographs of the locations. What I couldn’t do in the article, but what I can do now, is to thank two people in particular for getting me out of a tight spot. I had most of the photos I needed but was lacking two specific location shots: Tai Tam Bay and Aberdeen Harbour. I was all geared up to go and grab them on the previous weekend when the heavens opened and my one free day got pissed on big time. A couple of quick emails later and I had the shots I needed – so a big thank you to Thomas Ngan (already a prolific help over on my film locations blog). The other thanks go to my Tai Po-based friend Eddy Lo. Both of their photographic contributions were included in the published piece - Thomas supplied the shot of Aberdeen and Eddy gave me the photo of the Tai Tam stone jetty.
