Sai Kung is a seaside town North-East of Hong-Kong Island. For some reason, either there’s a lot of dog owners there, or dog owners converge there at the same time I go there. Either way, I intend to go back to do a series of nothing but dogs and dog owners. This is one of them. Interestingly, while many people aren’t too happy about being photographed in the street, if you show interest in the dog, they agree readily!
The kid was feeding a very docile but very alert dog with crumbs of his muffin. I really wanted to capture the dog’s expression.

Villa Borghese, early(ish) morning, hundreds of dogs being walked. What more needs to be said ?

There are a lot of temples in Bali, and a lot of stray dogs in the temples. This one was very peaceful, sitting at the front of one of the temple doors. Mind you it was so hot the poor creature must have been overheating like crazy…

Part of the fun of street photography is in spotting amusing juxtapositions or just funny situations. This photo is more the latter.

One thing you notice when you live in Hong Kong (and more generally in China, it was even more pronounced in Shanghai) is how much the Chinese love their dogs. There’s a special liking for small dogs (I suppose the topology of the city explains that in part) and so I’ve been trying to capture masters and dogs these last few weeks.

Walking the Dog

The lane just outside of our building block is always lined with cones. I wanted to capture the perspective, and one of the great things about the TX2 is that people don’t realise how wide it shoots. The guy walking his dog was looking at me like I was crazy, but he didn’t think he was in the frame.
