Mong Kok has become colourful and purposeful.
Something is waiting to happen.
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind…
It’s all on the wall.
Even the minions are here, patiently manning the barricades.
We’re all tourists here.
The lion wants true universal suffrage.
The people are here to stay.
The umbrellas were indeed open at 6p.m., 28th October, to remember the teargas used by the police on the protesters a month ago.
It says “Stop unethical policing”, not “stop policing”.
There is still a need for law and order.

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.
