We're in the middle of a heat wave in Hong Kong but you can't get street photos unless you brave the conditions and head out. Life doesn't stop around us so why should we? Today I set out with +Gazzaroonii T. and another visiting photographer to Mong Kok and Sham Shui Po.
I have been shooting for many years but street photography is fairly new for me and really only something that I picked up when I visited Tokyo about a year ago. Now in Hong Kong, I feel like my learning curve is growing exponentially and I am seeing constant improvement in my personal work on an almost daily basis. I feel like no matter how good a photographer you may be, there is always something new to learn and ways that we can grow as photographers. My time in Hong Kong has been the catalyst for a new period of growth for me and has renewed my passion for the craft.
With street photography, we always find ourselves going and finding what the street has to offer... finding the interesting scene that conveys a story or emotion. Sometimes, well... the street just finds you. This guy was quite funny. He seized the opportunity to practice his english on us. He really wanted us to check out the food in Hong Kong.
