Great set. Have certain vintage feeling on them, late 60's type of. HK is great location for photography. Your style is inspiring!

Thanks. This is precisely the look I'm trying to achieve!

I must agree with Cosmoza. I like the processing and some of it really captures Hong Kong/Chinese culture. We can see tall skyscrapers anywhere, but a man chopping roast duck with pigs and ducks hanging from a hook? That's hard to get.

BTW my parents are from HK!

I completely agree with you; I'm not inspired by taking yet another shot of the skyline (as beautiful as it is). There are lots of those kicking around, and most of them are done much better than anything I could do.

I'm inspired by people, and that's the spirit with which I took these.

Btw, no double-decker bus shots? That's my favorite transportation.

I like your taxi shot too. My dad used to be a taxi driver in hk.

Nice set. One thing I gotta say, I would not want to buy meat from those guys. They don't even wear hats to cover their hair...dirty looking meat processing station

For me, i come back to this thread to see that "meat prosessing" picture. I like the idea of a bit maybe chubby chinese guy and the picture of the pig in the logo below. Gives an thought of happy restaurant and happy worker. Real money shot. I need to bookmark your site!
