Hong Kong on Fuji Velvia

The day before yesterday I had lunch in Tsim Sha Tsui, wonderful lamb curry, chicken karahi and chappatis, then (energy boosted) walked to the star ferry, sat on the waves, took a rusty old tram to western market, stood and walked admiring Sheung Wan and all the small alleys with dried fish stalls, barbers, fruit and vegetables, meat laid out in fresh reds, spices and nuts in huge baskets... and I emptied my roll of film, loaded another, walked high up to the mid levels, then down through Soho...sat for an hour at pacific coffee drinking a reasonable latte and reading my Elliott Smith book.

I then headed by the old trams from Admiralty down to Tin Hau, watching the streets and markets from my front seat (the perfect place for Lomo), walked through Victoria Park and spoke to some of the Ayah’s, walked back to Central via Wan Chai which is one of the best places to take photos in Hong Kong although they are slowly taking down all the old buildings, then took the ferry back over to Kowloon, jumped a bus, walked through the insanity of Mongkok, bought some dvds, got some rolls developed, waited until night and wandered through temple street taking shots of the evening through reflections, then took the KCR back up to Tai Wai and waited for the mini bus to return me to here. a sweet day spent in
frames and film. If only they all could be so peaceful and productive.
