Rainy Snaps 雨中攝趣

Most people prefer sunny, blue sky and white clouds to go out taking photos. In rainy day, it will affect the shooting mood, even dispel the idea of photography. This day, I went to Cheung Chau Island in Hong Kong, going to shoot some distinctive views. Unfortunately, it rained all day from the beginning to the end of the trip.

Reminiscing Wing Lee Street 情迷永利街

Wing Lee Street is a short street in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, its street numbers range from 1 to 12 in a 5-story tenement building. Hong Kong film "Echoes of the Rainbow" was shot in this street, produced by Mabel Cheung, directed by Alex Law and starred by Simon Yam and Sandra Ng. The film won the Crystal Bear Award for the best film of the 60th Berlin Film Festival in March 2010 and subsequently made Wing Lee Street world-renowned. It is because of the fame gained by the film and the reaction of the public rejection that the Hong Kong government eventually changed its mind to retain the entire building which escaped the fate of demolition!

City Lights 城市之光

Hong Kong is world-renowned as "the Pearl of the Orient" because of its charming night scene. But in the hustle and bustle of Central downtown, there are still countless combinations of light and shadow that have presented many wonderful images of the city through the glass wall of the buildings. The images presented are fascinating. I walked in the concrete jungle of Central and used the camera to capture the "city of light" to let people appreciate another face of the Central.

Those striving for a living 為生活拼搏的一群

Central is a commercial district in Hong Kong. In this bustling city, there are scenes reflecting people's struggling for a hard life. I was on the mid-levels escalator in Central, discovering many shops opened in the buildings on both sides of the escalator. The internal operation of the shop is a vivid showcase for the customers and pedestrians.

It is a commercial community established to develop digital technology with partnership of companies and IT developers to meet the demand of the expanding digital age.

Love in Shek O 石澳情

Shek O, located in the southern part of the Hong Kong island, is a resort area with a beautiful beach. A small bridge connects the Shek O Village and Tai Tau Chau (lit. big headed island). There is a small trail meandering in the hill. The village is tranquil with gorgeous resort houses. The beach is wide with tidal waves, attracting many tourists, lovers and the newly-wed for a walk and photography.
