Fishmonger

One of the attractions in Hong Kong the author has found most intriguing is the lively open-air wet market.  There are several old ones which are worth a visit in Tai Po (near the Railway Museum), Mong Kok, Yau Ma Tei and Wan Chai.  The Mong Kok wet market is my favourite for it has a better atmosphere with lots of makeshift kiosks.  It is a interestingly untidy place to be.  Bring your camera.

If the weekdays have a pattern, it should be a monotonous one.

Philosophy and Photography

Coming across a scene which may be bland to an untrained eye but absorbing to the mind's eye through the imaginary viewfinder, the observant photographers will have their on-board photography-radar devices started bleeping and flashing, and take the shot at the desirable camera setting.

When photographers achieve that level, it will then clearly be not for want of effort on their part to just observe and find out what to shoot but, more importantly, to develop the philosophy behind what they shoot.

Most recent shots of the author have been taken to reflect the undercurrent of charm and calmness alongside the craze of rat-racing in a busy commercial city like Hong Kong.  A quotable quote from Confucius reads, "Whenever you go, go with all your heart."  To the author, the "heart" here can be deciphered as "diligence and sensibility".  We work hard, but we shall feel what and why we are doing so hard -- both with all our heart.

... the red traffic light, he goes ahead, obviously being unable to see what may be coming along to him.

That's the game lots of us do in the week day.  But this is Sunday. Don't do that to yourself.  Have a great day!
