near Ma On Shan Central Park

Adjacent to Ma On Shan Central Park, facing Tolo Harbour, is a homely stretch.

On a leisurely weekend, you’ll find joggers, sunrise/sunset photographers and people simply out for a walk.

I’ve underexposed these shots, and realized one could transform the homely and familiar into something uncanny, slightly gothic and perhaps even frightening.

I think it has to do with seeing and not being able to see. Simply by playing with light, one could change things.

That is why I think street photography is about “capturing” as much as constructing and playing with reality.
