Boat Trip 

Went on a boat trip from Sai Kung to an outlying island.

The famous Chung Kee Noodles in an alleyway.

Checked out various boat trips on offer.

Looked at the fresh seafood for sale.

An old lady approached us and quoted $250 for a trip and off we went.

It’s a salt mine village.

There were many abandoned village houses.

Then we saw this.

Beautiful.

There’s a history here waiting to be figured out.

Nice little courtyard.

What joy!

Kids everywhere are the same.

Here kitty kitty.

Everyday Things

These are things I see on a daily basis.

I see, therefore I am.

IMG_20151201_0022 640

This is my mind, even if it’s only for a while.

IMG_20151201_0023 640

Sometimes I feel like this.

Mostly though, I’m like this.

 

This is a third companion piece, after Mundane Objects and  Common Things.

On Being Careless

To be interested in street photography is to be careless.

The above might look better if the boats were cut out of the photograph. The subject would be clearer.

But the eyes don’t always discriminate properly.

Found scenes are things as they are.

IMG_20150929_0048 640

Boats and paths as they are.

IMG_20150929_0049 640

A child as he is.

IMG_20150930_0001 640

There’s an accommodation of sorts.

IMG_20150930_0002 640

An ordering of nature.

On Sense and Sensibility

What, really, is there to talk about when it comes to street photography?

IMG_20150929_0029 640

In the end, we’re capturing our selves.

IMG_20150929_0030 640

And the constraints that shape us.

IMG_20150929_0033 640

Street photography is another way of thinking.

IMG_20150929_0034 640

Another way of looking.

IMG_20150929_0037 640

Sometimes the scene seems a bit bare.

IMG_20150929_0038 640

Until one encounters a human figure.

IMG_20150929_0039 640

The art is long and life so short.

In the meantime, my exhibition is still on-going – come by if you’re in the area.

Rural Views

I’m here again and again.

IMG_20150929_0014 640

It doesn’t look like much – but it has wonderful views.

IMG_20150929_0017 640

The environment is a work of art.

IMG_20150929_0018 640

The mood is always leisurely.

IMG_20150929_0019 640

The debris is zen.

IMG_20150929_0020 640

There’s artless beauty here.

IMG_20150929_0025 640

I’m happy to be marooned here.

Another Place in HK

Sometimes, we need to disappear into that rabbit hole.

IMG_20150929_0022 640

To an alternative Hong Kong.

IMG_20150929_0001 640

Where you could walk at your own pace and not worry about obstructing others on a crowded pavement.

IMG_20150929_0015 640

You could take your time (and not have it taken away from you).

IMG_20150929_0024 640

You could just stay put.

IMG_20150929_0016 640

Have some peace of mind.

IMG_20150929_0027 640

And mental space.
