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…

You see a lot of these roast duck (and, I’m assuming other meats) stores in the streets of Hong Kong. This one is in Causeway Bay, and as I often walk past it to get back from work, I always like how the light illuminates the customers in the early evening hours. This time I captured it.

It can get pretty steep on the upper parts of Tin Hau where we live. This is in fact just down our street, and I thought it was a good way of representing the gradient of the hill. And yes Pirelli is a very popular brand here.

We used to see these stores selling all kinds of seemingly unrelated junk all the time in Shanghai. They also exist in Quarry Bay, it seems. I love them, so Chinese!
Seven Eleven Heaven

There are a lot of 7 Elevens in Hong Kong. I mean, they’re just everywhere. When we went with my family, we had a running joke whenever we got lost in the streets (which kind of happens all the time): whenever one of us would see a 7 Eleven, he’d say: « Oh, I know where we are! Here’s the 7 Eleven ». Anyway, I quite like this shot because not only does it show Hong Kong by night, but it shows the differences in levels with every store a little higher than the previous one. That’s Central for you.

The first evening, at dusk, I was struck by the possibilities offered by the bright shop windows before closing time to do silhouettes. I have it a shot and was quite pleased with the results. Unfortunately, it requires time and patience, and with kids in tow I had neither, so this is the only attempt. Definitely something I will try again.
