Feral cattle in Hong Kong?

If Hollywood are to be believed, Hong Kong is a city entirely made up of towering glass and steel skyscrapers, and while a small area of the territory is like that, over 3/4 of Hong Kong is actually country parks, small towns and villages.

The area around the town of Sai Kung (Eastern New Territories) is well known throughout Hong Kong for its feral cattle. Formerly farm animals when rice farming was common, they were abandoned when it became uneconomical and now roam the hills and country parks around the town. As seen here they also regularly wander through Sai Kung town and this image juxtaposes Hong Kong's original beasts of burden with their modern equivalent, the ubiquitous mini-bus.

The image is available as a Black and White print (unframed) on archival quality Hahnemühle matt fine art paper in two sizes 40cm x 26.6cm and 25cm x 16.6cm.

Good causes: 10% of the profit from each print sale goes to a good cause. The causes I am currently supporting are Catherine's Puppies and Best Friends Together

Please note: These prints have a border to allow for easier matting/framing. As a result the total paper size will be slightly larger at:

44cm x 31.6cm and 29cm x 21.6cm

Free shipping within Hong Kong.

More about good causes.
When people started asking to buy prints of my work I decided that I didn't just want to do business; I also wanted to do good. Don't get me wrong I'm no saint, I am just a regular guy. But even a regular guy can do a little bit of good and if we all do a little it will add up. To that end I decided to donate 10% of the profit from each print I sell to a variety of good causes. Current that amounts to HK50 per 40cm print and HK$20 per 25cm print.

The causes I am currently supporting are:
Catherine's Puppies (a local Sai Kung animal welfare group) https://www.facebook.com/catherinespuppies/, and
Build your Future Together (a Cambodian child welfare NGO) http://www.buildyourfuturetoday.org/home.html
