The street markets of Shamshuipo are very busy.
There’s a constant assault of colours.
There’s so much movement.
So much that may be hidden.
That you can’t take what you see for granted.
Every scene is a visual poem.
The camera is a notebook with which to write.
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.
