One of the most common online images is of people walking in the street, which are so ubiquitous to the point of being monotonous. There is one dumb-proven technique in making one such shot that may stand out. It is shooting a scene where people are going in different directions. This always works.

I have been slacking off a bit posting here but not for shooting. Bringing along my camera remains a daily must. This has become so built-in that I will feel very insecure without it when being away from home lest a previous photography opportunity will present itself around the next corner.
My GR mounted with the converter gives me even greater stealth in making candid shots in the street coz the converter screens the protruded lens when turned on.
The customisable slots are set with a variety of stylistic modes. I named them like Underground, Street, Light Painting, etc. What a fun camera!

The locals are gradually returning to their normal lives after the Chinese New Year week. Since it is based on the lunar calender, the Chinese New Year day falls on different days between end January and end February each year.

They come over to Hong Kong to snap up items from staple food to dog food. Worst of all, their bad habits and manners like here and here are what frustrate the locals most. CNN has recently reported on the issue here. What do you think?

I seldom read any writing about interpreting composition in relation to the intent of the photographer, say, to complement the intended atmosphere. Let me put it this way: Composition is a tool to use for a purpose, but not a tool to use for showing people that you know that tool.
