Stunning images of the endless buildings and skies of Hong Kong

Romain Jacquet-Lagrèze is a French photographer who loves Hong Kong.

It's easy to forget how beautiful the world is when we shackle ourselves inside all day. Maybe on the weekend we'll take a hike, we say. Maybe next month we'll make a trip out to the woods, we plan. But even if we do all that, we still don't see it enough. Good thing photographers like Brian Donovan are capturing the… » 1/21/14 8:00am 1/21/14 8:00am
