A 6 hour walk in Hong Kong

A 6 hour walk in Hong Kong

My friend Chris Handley came and joined me and my brother for a nice long walk in Hong Kong.  I think there is no better way to explore a city than to grab a camera and go for a nice long walk.  It does help to have someone who knows the area but not always required.   Thankfully Chris knows the area well…

Causeway Bay Hong Kong…  I started shooting the view out of my hotel window everywhere I go this year.   It is going to be interesting to see the collection of photos at the end of the year.

I love shooting with other photographers who shoot very differently to me.   Chris is one of those photographers.   Every time I saw Chris framing a picture I couldn’t figure out what he was trying to frame but then when I saw the shot it was really good.   It was just something that I didn’t see myself.   This shot is one example of that.

Note:  All of the other shots that are really good below were probably my idea… :-)

I don’t shoot shots like this a lot but I saw him coming and want to make sure I am catering to both my male and female readers, so Ladies of ShootTokyo this is for you…

We stopped and play with reflections in water a bit…

One thing I like about shooting with other photographers is when they captures some ‘action’ shots of me…

I think it came out pretty cool…

One tip Chris gave me after shooting this shot was to make sure you have a Protector, or filter, over your lens as these sparks are hot enough to damage the glass.    Thankfully I always have them on my lenses.

A public service announcement:  No photos please.

I take photos of these to help let the larger photo community know they don’t want photos taken.

No taking photos

It’s OK to chimp as long as you are with friends…

  1. Dave,

    Awesome walk about photo shoot! The Alley shots are wondrous! Thanks for the Man candy shot.

    I was thinking about you and your style yesterday when I was walking through China Town in Philadelphia yesterday afternoon. I am not that brave yet but I have a few candid and signage shots.

  2. Hong Kong is super vibrant! I imagine you and your friends must have so much fun there, at least that’s what the photos says. :D
    Love the water reflection shot.

  3. Liked the chimp shot of you. Was everyone using those cute little cameras? Not sure what the graffiti of the $$$ (right after the cute girl in the black dress) is trying to say. Is money good or bad? Very jealous, must have been a great day. Would love to do the same one day.

  4. I love the colors of Hong Kong. Thanks for giving us a glimpse! Extra points for the eye candy for the ladies ;) – Teena

  5. WOW !, excellent pictures, and of course thanks for sharing these with us.Cheers

  6. Getting ‘Lost’ is one great way to see a city..Fantastic post.

  7. Thank you for documenting Hong Kong and Tokyo! Your photos tug at my heartstrings and make me wonder why I am not there.

  8. Wow, you walked just past my office when you were in Sheung Wan. Wonder if I spotted you (I spend too much time in front of my office building smoking.) Glad you’re enjoying your visit here!

  9. How many people does it take to fix a cable :) Hehe.
    I really love the picture of you next to three statues. They all look like they are checking their blackberries.

  10. Very interesting shots and article!

  11. Memories: A fist full of finger-sandwiches and some NICE pics…

    Life is Good!

  12. Celesta – I know it was interesting to watch them fixing it. I found the guy talking on his mobile phone while they were doing it pretty funny.

  13. Russ – All of us were using the cute ones… Stopped lots of people for some shots.

  14. Have never seen Hong Kong, so am very excited with this opportunity to see it through your eyes (lens) and travel with you. Am loving your shots. And a special big thank you for THE RUNNER—big smiles!!
