Sometimes, it is a pain when you realize that what you have is actually good enough.
Sad is the man who realizes he does not have a good excuse to buy another camera.
What happens if you’re already happy with your Olympus XA 2 as a street camera?
You go out and buy an Olympus XA 3, of course.
It’s the same difference.
There’re differences between a Olympus XA 2 and XA 3, of course.
What this also means is that I could go out with 2 different films.
One could be loaded with a colour film and the other with a b/w film.
Or they could have films of different ISOs.
Ah – the joys of street photography.

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.

Reblogged this on Being Southern Somewhere Else and commented:
Normally, these photo-essays are monochrome, and I get lost in the world of forms arrayed before me. This color exposition is shocking, vibrant, and absorbing for totally different reasons. An absolutely fascinating photoblog to follow.
Thank you for your kind words!
