Saturday in Hong Kong

Saturday in Hong Kong

I love shooting in a 'new' city.  I have been to Hong Kong many times but never have I had a few days to explore and shoot it.  If I was lucky I just an evening free in the past.  Having 4 full days has given me so much time to see and explore .  I have never had a Saturday in Hong Kong free before.   I really love this city. The Prada Flagship Store in Hong Kong...

This is a good example of finding a scene and then just waiting for your subjects to walk into it.  I saw this wall covered with a Giorgio Armani sign and thought it would look nice to expose for the wall and silhouette the people walking by.  Now I just needed to wait for the right people to walk by...

One thing I love about asian cities is all of the levels...

I stopped by the Apple Store...  I couldn't believe how massive it was.   I had to wait about 20 minutes for someone to not be walking in front of me to get this shot.  I can't imagine the monthly revenues from this store.   Louis Vuitton opened a Flagship Store in Hong Kong that is pulling in $25 Million USD a month, mostly through sales from shoppers from mainland China.

I have been fortunate enough to travel all over Asia on business over the past 10 years.  I love how unique each of the cities are. Each have their own distinct personalities.   I think my favorites are Tokyo and Singapore.   Probably because I have lived in both so I know the cities really well.   Hong Kong is also starting to join the list of my favorites.

One thing I love about black and white shots is your subject can be a little blurry and still look good.   Often it adds to the photo.   The same usually does not work for me in color.
