(Camera: Ricoh GX200)
The shot was taken on the ground floor of the HSBC headquarters building, now the reinstated citadel of its global business with its Chairman relocated to Hong Kong in 2009. The realignment of its business positioning was said to be a show of appreciation of the Hongkongers' support to it during the bank's Waterloo in the U.S.'s property market. Which is a kind of publicity bullshitting. The movement had to do more with the increasing importance of the Chinese financial market.
The ground floor under the head office building is an idoit-proof place to take shots of silhouettes. If the contrast is too wide for the camera's sensor, the structural overhang could be made use of to reduce the brightness of the sky.
