I’m taking a break from street photography to look at mundane stuff.
Stuff our eyes don’t normally focus on.
But they do create an environment of sorts.
Repeat something enough and it becomes a life.
Pavements can be interesting.
Stuff lying around.
There’s an order of things here.
A call to discipline.

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.

Very mundane! 😀
Nice stuff. I have been collaborating with a photographer using similar imagery.
Beautiful. I have a series called, “Discarded,” of furniture left by the curb. Cindy Rinne

I was wondering where in Hong Kong these was taken? The last picture made me curious for its Filipino/Tagalog translation (though with typos).
It’s in a village in the New Territories area. 🙂
Ohhh. Thank you. 😀
I enjoy the mundane.
