Trying out a new lens… wifey was braving the heat at Sham Shui Po with me.
Trying to get into the flow. I think I was spotted.
Hard at work.
Was a bit self-conscious with wifey next to me but I did a good job of ignoring her.
I need a better camera bag… one with an external mesh pocket for a water bottle.
I can see wifey melting in the hot sun. Am ignoring her.
Listing them down.
Wifey is checking the time on her watch. Am ignoring her.
A 35mm lens gives me a 56mm view with the crop factor. Ok lah.
Maybe I should get that 7Artisans 50mm lens for a short telephoto 80mm equivalent.
Wait… where’s wifey…

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.

One thought on “Canon M50 with 7Artisans 35mm F1.2”
The photos work well with your amusing narative. They wouldn’t be as interesting without it I think. Well done and thanks for sharing, hope you found your wife! 🙂
