Peeping Out the Nightclub

When you shoot street there are sometimes things you discover after the shot that strike you as more significant than what you wanted to shoot in the first place. Such is the case here, I only noticed the guy peering out the top window when processing the shot.

People here love their street food. You can see people eating snacks at all times of the day (and night). This guy though, with the artificial blonde hair and the Sasa backdrop really stood out.

This is another shot from Sham Shui Po. I really love the light here, all artificial, coming from the little store, at something like 5 AM. To be fair I’m not often up at that time, but I should try and make the effort more often…
Quiet Night in CWB

Iconic night shots of Hong Kong feature these massive and colourful stree signs. In my first weeks here I did a few night outings hunting down these signs. Not easy to find balanced compositions, but I think this one works, the mini-bus balancing the sign.
Choose Your Meat

For me as a Frenchman used to mostly aseptic butchery stores, the naked meat on display in Hong Kong is both weird and strangely appealing. I have a lot more meat photos to share, but let’s start here.

There are a few pedestrian streets in Wan Chai, in between Johnston Road and Queen’s Road East where street stalls have taken over. While most of them are a food or dry goods (or junk from over the border), there’s a nice enough flower stall there, and the owner seems fairly relaxed.

I often walk past this seafood stall in the Causeway Bay wet market. That evening, the seller had this stance that reminded me of a dancer’s, so I pressed the button.

There are not many open air wet markets here like you expect to see in France. But there are a lot of indoor markets with tiny stalls one after the other. This stall stood out because it was so small, paradoxically.
Bric a Brac

Besides street food which is abundantly available in the streets of Hong Kong, there are a lot of street vendors with the kind of odd selection you can see here. In fact, under this bridge on my way to work there seems to be a different bric a brac reseller every day.

There are a lot of lollipop men or ladies in Hong Kong advertising for services. The ones working for Sasa (a cheap cosmetic retailer) tend to have it better than most: they get to be seated and read the newspaper.
