These are from the Octoberfest project. It was early morning and a typhoon was approaching so everybody stayed at home or un a safe place, and schools and business were closed. The usual busy streets, malls and commercial buildings were all deserted. It's calm and peaceful, before the wind and rain came.

All photos taken with the Leica Q2M.

Great images - eerie without the people - looks like the site is being used by a horror movie.
Thank you Allan

I echo what Allan has said.

I have overnighted in Hong Kong a couple of times while going to other Asian destinations . I could not imagine what the city would look like empty. Even in the late hours there were people bustling about. Very nice set.
