Gorgeous - Ocean Centre

The filming location of the first Jackie vs Brad Allan fightscene. The upper parking deck of the Ocean Centre offers a gorgeous panoramic view of the harbour and Hong Kong Island. Unfortunately, I managed to lose all the pictures I've taken there with the exception of this one:



Luckily, the great Silke Oettel offered me to use one of her shots. One of many well worth seeing photos from her enjoyable article Discover Hong Kong on Jackie's Traces. She is also from Leipzig and very active in the JC Dragon's Heart Foundation http://www.jcdragonshearteurope.de/. Thanks Silke!
