Shamshuipo, as you can see, is my other haunt.
There’s enough bustle for street photographs.
The colours can be interesting too. The red and green combo is nice.
He didn’t even notice me.
I was testing out a generic rectangular lens hood on my lens to make sure there wasn’t any vignetting.
This is one of two flea market stalls selling film cameras.
It’s a low volume high flow business. The offerings change every week.
Occasionally, you could see a few Leicas. I saw an X Pro 1 here once…
Thanks for reading!

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.

We were in HK in 2013 and loved it. We didn’t get out to Shamshuipo, but did spend a lot of time in Mong Kok. Obviously a great place for photos! This is one of my faves: http://sjp.id.au/photostory/photo-story-monk-mong-kok/
Cheers Steve. Thanks for sharing!
