Ever read that interview on dpreview in which the interviewee speaks about the doom of photojournalism being a career? The turth of it is yet to be tested. But what is sure is that being a photojournalist is a dangerous job sometimes. Just yesterday, an uptown residential area in Hong Kong saw a handful of cranes with arms spurring up in the sky from where unprotected photojournalists raced to take shots of the ernomous scandalous illegal basement beneath the house of the Government's former second man Henry Tang -- now the candidate hopeful for Hong Kong's next helmsmanship -- which is reportedly built under his knowledge during his term of office in the Government. Tang has spoken evasively to the press this week in the hope of covering up the matter. Yesterday's incident is reported in some international news media.
As an aside, we have seen here some creative bloggers taking advantage of digital post-processing to bring us some entertaining images to ridicule the adsurdity of the scandal and Tang's responses -- he now makes his wife the scapegoat for it. In effect, this is to say that he has nothing to do with the illegal basement while living on the floors above.
