I do not regard myself as a photographer. I'm an ordinary man but extraordinarily obsessed with capturing all the memorable scenes that I encounter in my everyday life. It's like an excited traveller craving to record his memorable journey in a memorable way, but in my case, it's the journey of my life ... If I can record my encounters in such a way that they leave an image on the mind of myself and other viewers, it's a tremendous joy and some accomplishment...
In terms of photography, I'm trying to preserve the moments as my eyes see "something" and my heart feels it too. As such, I seldom feel interested in planned, arranged or manipulated photographs...

I miss HK.I will go there in 2 weeks and for sure with my camera.And certainly visit Mongkok for their camera shops (Wing shing is the best one).
I also like Mongkok , because for me it represents a popular quarter of HK.

Good idea.... get your feet rubbed, haircut, and then check into the hotel.

Cool image...!
