Fuji X-Pro2, 27mm, f/8, 1/10s, ISO 200
It won’t have escaped your notice that I’m fascinated with Hong Kong buildings. Having said that, admiring them and framing them in an effective composition are two different things. As I walk around the streets of Central or Causeway Bay, I try not just to see cool looking scrapers but to structure them inside a photo. Work in progress, as they say, but I think I’m getting there.

Fuji x100s, 35mm, f/2, 1/500s, ISO 3200
I spent a short week in Hong Kong recently, and went out nearly every night to try and capture the particular atmosphere of the city after dusk. I was mostly on Hong Kong Island around Central (my favourite part of HK anyway) and this week I will share photos from a series I entitled Hong Kong Mood, trying to express what makes Hong Kong what it is visually. I was greatly helped by the incredible low-light performance of the Fuji x100s with virtually no grain at ISO 3200. Liberating.
Early evening over Victoria Harbour in Hong-Kong. Now you know why everybody you see on the shore after 6 PM carries a tripod.
