On Cheung Chau island.
The atmosphere is rather relaxed.
One could dream of a life here.
It’s one of those possible doorways.
One could just stand here and admire the wall.
Lack of love?
An advertising and laundry space.
Though sometimes we could be in a hurry.
Oh I’m dreaming I’m dreaming of a slower pace of life.
Is it possible?
It is possible.
Maybe I’m romanticizing too much.
It’s a possibility, I suppose.
Camera: Leica M6
Lens: Voigtlander Nokton Classic 35mm f/1.4 SC

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.

I like your style of photography representation. Narrative. Its amazing how your gray-scale images brings so much character out. Please tell me how do you choose which photograph to be changed to balck-n-white.
Thank you! 🙂 It’s not a matter of choice, since I’m using b/w film. Ilford XP2 is my preferred b/w film for cameras like Olympus XA3 and Leica M6. Colours can be distracting sometimes.
well said…and now i can see that why you sill into b/w photography…its great!!!…lot to learn from these…keep capturing awesomeness 🙂
