In Pictures: Dear humans, how many pairs of shoes do you need?

Lantau resident “Billy the Cow” has collected photos of washed-up footwear on Pui O beach. His shots were taken as Hongkongers spend a second weekend clearing beaches of an influx of trash.

“Change your wasteful habits and stop blaming others for the mess we are creating for ourselves,” the photographer said.

However, he was happy to see residents taking a greater interest in cleaning up shorelines. “This has been happening on Pui O Beach for many years, now. I am happy to see so many humans finally taking an interest in cleaning up my yard.”

HKFP History: The British luxury liner at the bottom of Victoria Harbour

Buried at the bottom of Victoria Harbour remains the keel, hull and boilers from the QEII predecessor, the RMS Queen Elizabeth. It was purchased at auction in 1970 by local tycoon C.Y. Tung, who wanted to make the vessel into a university for the World Campus Afloat programme, the predecessor to Semester at Sea. Tung renamed the ship Seawise University, a play on his initials.

However, the vessel sank two years later, on January 9, 1972, following a fire.
