Received funding some time ago to work on a book.
Am taking walks and doing some thinking.
It’s a street photography-based research.
Prepping my cameras.
It’s a social documentary of glimpses…
Thinking about stuff.
And running at times with quirky ideas.
Murakami at Tai Kwun.
All going by so fast with phone and cameras.
Were all those really Murakami?
Finally gave in and bought that mirrorless camera because it will help me save money. Haha.
Because with a few adapters, I could use my various Takumars, Leica mount lenses and Canon EF/EFS lenses. I accidentally bought a 28mm Industar…
The Voigtlander and a few others allow for zone focusing.
Though I wasn’t fast enough sometimes.
Looking and thinking with some focus peaking.
A homely arrangement.
We all need to find home.
Sonny boy has this great idea about trying out the beef ball noodles at Haiphong Road Temporary Market which has been there for 30 odd years.
So yes – I’ve an excuse to whip out the camera. The scene was quiet at first, with a guy eating quietly and a lady appearing on the left.
Then I looked again and the scene changed in a matter of minutes.
Such drama suddenly, quietly taking place.
The beef balls were great, with a tinge of citrus.
Sonny boy wanted to go cycling.
So we did.
There goes my plan to do nothing.
Plover Cove Reservoir is fantastic!
It’s nice stroll.
The dogs are out.
Lots of healthy walking.
Some more walking.
A love story waiting to unfold.
Fun fun fun!
Wind, water, hills.
All we need.
Was at the HK Food Festival at the Convention and Exhibition Centre, because sonny boy is interested in food prep and stuff.
We tried the squid.
Were tempted by those.
Can’t carry those back.
A pensive moment.
Sonny boy had those rolled ice cream.
We didn’t try those beef cubes either…
On Royal Caribbean’s Voyages of the Sea, to Kaohsiung and Taipei (Keelung) from Hong Kong.
There were wonderful views at the top deck.
In a contemplative mood.
Lots to take in.
The restaurant queue was crazy at first.
But the restaurant was awesome.
Hiking with folks from my church, ECC HK.
Here. No, here.
What a view. Think about those property prices…
Are we lost?
Nope – we know where we are.
Here we go.
Can’t go wrong from here.
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.
There’s a history here waiting to be figured out.
Nice little courtyard.
Kids everywhere are the same.
Here kitty kitty.
Just for contrast here.
There’re busy scenes.
People are at work.
You could find quiet moments as well.
Sharing time together.
Or simply by yourself.
You could frame and reframe a moment.
Until you disappear and everything is just right.
