Fuji GW690iii + JCH400
The backalleys of Central are a treasure trove for graffiti lovers, which is not what you’d necesseraly expect of this otherwise affluent neighbourhood. I regularly roam the area, and quite often find that black and white is just as interesting as colour despite the polychromatism of the original.

GW690iii + JCH400
With the protests that have been ongoing since last summer, new, more political tags, have been appearing all over the city. This is a set of narrow alleyways and stairs in Sheung Wan and I liked the combination of the column, the leaves, the stairs and the tag.

There’s a little bit of street art in Tai Hang. Not a huge amount, but what there is is quite nice. This store screen is my favourite. It makes me smile each time I walk past it, and for some reason there is nearly always a bicycle parked in front (I can’t guarantee it’s the same one each time…)

Tai Hang is one of my favourite places to hang around and shoot in Hong Kong. Often, I shoot street, but this still life of sorts called out to me. There’s a neat kind of balance between the four elements in this shot.
