I’ve been looking though images taken a few months ago in Singapore with my trusty Canon G11. It went through an overhaul and is now good as new.
Generally, on family outings, I bring along my G11 for family snapshots.
Usually, I make a division between street photography (film cameras only) and family pics (digital only) just to keep things simple. But life is not always simple.
I find myself in street photography mode often at various moments during family outings.
These were taken at Sentosa.
I find the high-contrast Daido Moriyama style rather addictive.
The scene looked so good I can’t resist another:
I’m still waiting for my G11 to break down so as to have an excuse to get that Ricoh GR Digital.
More next time.

I am a poet and an educator. I have come to realise in recent years that the act of writing poetry has trained my mind to be always on the prowl for everyday moments that might be suitable material for my writing.
Hence, I turn to photography in order to record some of these moments. I soon discover that the photographs I am taking, using film rangefinder cameras which are more discreet and hence suitable to the task at hand, are in the tradition of street photography.
In search of poetry, I have become a street photographer.
What can Hong Kong teach me about street photography, and what can street photography teach me about Hong Kong?
This blog seeks to address that question.
