Mention Hong Kong and you would think of skyscrapers, crowded streets, and the wonderful dimsum.
But there’s a quieter, meditative side to Hong Kong as well.
You could find scenes like these…
These are the views you get if you’re willing to live in somewhat out-of-the-way village houses.

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.
