Street Snaps: Hong Kong

I love to watch people go about their lives without me being involved, just watching in a distance sometimes reveals so much how a person’s day has been going so far. I used to do it a lot on my solo trips in museums, and parks in Manila. I’d seat in a corner, camera in hand, and stay there for hours, letting the world move past me.

In Hong Kong I had a few quick moments of watching people and here are some of what I took there. This concludes my Hong Kong blogs. Thanks for reading through the series.

Nothing to sweep clean but leaves – Hong Kong is a very clean city

A good case of ‘Human Trafficking’

Old but Gold Love – I almost got hit by a Taxi while crossing because I was so focused in taking a video of this lovely couple, the taxi missed me by a few inches.

BONUS: I also took videos of my couple friends during our trip, and I caught some good moments of them, most were secretly taken. I chose to shoot only in 720p quality as I wanted a film feel to the video.

Cheers!
