(Sony A55)According to this statistics, Hong Kong is the fourth most densely populated place in the world. Fact is, it should have ascended to the winner's throne since a large part of the territory is designated as country park where no development is allowed. Take for example our most densely populated district, Kwun Tong. Its population density is a terrifying 54 530 persons per square kilometre as at 2010 (For comparison, world’s most densely populated Macau has 19 610 per square kilometre). Today’s shot of a typical old residential tenement building in Kwun Tong gives a glimpse of how crowded the place is. Such tenement buildings of five to six storeys are mostly built before the Second World War and are therefore generally known as pre-War buildings.
(Leica X1)Curvature was what sprang to mind at the sight of this scene. The echoes of curvature of the ceiling, the standing man, his belly and the crooked back of the folk sitting in the foreground (and his knee too) flow around the image nicely. My fav shot of the day.
(Leica D-Lux 5)The scene appealed to me as it so befitted the mood of the relaxed atmosphere of a two-day holiday immediately after the weekend. No wonder when a photographer is too tied down to feel the mood inside or around, the chance of snapping a fav shot is low. I usually find myself sniffing out my own mood by the camera cabinet before picking the right camera to bring with me, if you ask me.
(Leica D-Lux 5)After the break with much fuss about my sprained ankle, I have found myself arriving at the day of the Mid-Autumn Festival, a day for family gathering and eating binge and full moon spotting.This is Sunday. Have a nice day!
