Ladies’ Market

This is Ladies’ Market at Mongkok.

It’s a short stretch of market stalls popular with tourists and locals alike.

We were a bit early so we got to see the stalls being set up.

This is the ubiquitous red/white/blue canvas.

The material has been used to make awnings, bags, covers, etc.

It was a hot day.

The goods were arriving.

People were doing all these calculations.

Hong Kong, of course, is defined by numbers.

I was using my Olympus XA2.

The 35mm lens was great for tight situations.

I was worried about the shutter speed in the shade and hence was using the Fuji Superia 800 film.

The film has a “powdery” painterly effect sometimes.

Wonderful colours.

Seasoned tourist.

I like the (faux?) leather notebooks.

Hong Kong’s street markets are literally full of colours.

A bit of heartfelt advertising.

I especially like the above image because the slight blur as a result of the camera shake adds to the sense of urgency in the way we look.

A bit of effort.

For collectors: open-edition prints are available at my Saatchi Art page.
