We shape the city.
The city shapes us.
We create new possibilities.
But there’re only so many paths you could choose to take.
Sometimes the view surprises us.
Sometimes it stops us from going further.
We have to do the work of philosophy.
To think about what we’re moving, and what moves us.

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.
