Hong Kong streets
Hong Kong to date has been our favorite city for street photography. After traveling on some of the worst roads we've ever seen in the last couple of months, when we first landed in HK the efficiency was somewhat staggering. The metro, tram and ferry are equally pleasant, and each was just a couple swipes of our Octopus card away. And after being tethered to our car for a few months, using our legs, feeling the cool breeze come off the harbor and taking cheap public transportation was quite thrilling. Hong Kong is also the most visually appealing urban jungle we know. In fact, you don't have to leave the city to look down upon it. Streets are woven over and under, up and down, in and out. Reflection is built in, which is rare among urban sprawl these days.
During our two weeks in HK we fattened up on good food and company. We also took each and every opportunity, rain or shine, to take to the streets and exercise both our legs and camera trigger fingers. With some loaned kit (a Fuji GA645 and Zeiss Ikon) from our ever-generous friend Dan, we tried to capture some of the energy of the Hong Kong streets on film.
