車窗外望 Looking Thro the Bus Window

On Dec 03, 2011, I was in Hong Kong, taking bus route #40 to Tsuen Wan.  I loved to sit in the front of the upper deck to capture the street scene with my camera.  This time, I made use of the window frame of the bus for photo composition to create a peculiar effect.  The location of each photo was displayed in the map on the right of Picasa.  The map effect would be much better by choosing "Satellite" . 

午後細雨 A Rainy Afternoon

Joy of Photography in a rainy day:  Today is December 12, 2012, a cold and a rainy afternoon.  Temperature is 2 degree C.   I try to capture the changing shape of the rain drops.  This time, I use Lumix G10 Micro 3/4 body with 14-42mm kit lens.  The camera is very compact and is used to test its function.  Picasa is good to display detail information of the photo taken.

馬灣之日與夜 Ma Wan: Day & Night

Ma Wan: Day & NightOn November 29, 2011, I went to Ma Wan, Hong Kong for photography.  My last visit to this island was back to 40 years with classmates when I was a junior school student.  Last year, I went back to Hong Kong.  The airport bus passed the bridge and from there I could see the new and old piers of Ma Wan.  The old village of Ma Wan was deserted.  I could only recall my good old memory from those ragged houses in the village!

Contax super sharp lens: Planar 45mm f/2

I owned a Contax G2 camera some 15 years ago. This is a well known camera always compared with Leica M6 side by side. Contax has produced 7 lens for this camera: 16mm f/8, 21mm f2.8, 28mm f/2.8, 35mm f/2.8, 45mm f/2, 90mm f/2.8, 35-70mm f/3.5-5.6. I have all these except 35mm and 35-70mm.

霍士公園隨手拍 Snapshots at Terry Fox Park

In a cold afternoon of December 31, 2011, I strolled along the Terry Fox Park in Scarborough. Snow stopped falling and began to dissolve. Hence the weather is bitterly cold. I wore the gloves and began to take a few snapshots in the park.

Photo devices: Nikon D200, AF DX 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6, Nikon GP-1 GPS.

雨夜中的立法會大樓 LEGCO Building in A Rainy Night

These photos were taken unexpectedly on Nov 25, 2011. I was returning home after attending a concert of the Hong Kong Chinese Orchestra near City Hall. I was attracted by the lights of the building and eventually spent a while to capture these beautiful photos with my camera.
