kung lee cane juice

Another old Hong Kong shot... This is one of the few old shops that has remarkably remained unchanged both in terms of decoration and business style (since its opening in the late 40's). Fresh cane is used every morning to make juice for the day and no juice will be kept overnight! Apart from fresh cane juice, it's also famous for its "turtle jelly", a traditional Chinese health food that is good to the skin and throat. Both were the favourites of my generation and now of my kids...:-)

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...

Beautiful shot! I like the angle and the colours of sprinkler in the foreground. Cane juice and turtle jelly? Have to try sooner or later!

Very good document. I think that here the angle makes the photo.
And it is a good adress to drink cane juice when I go to Honk Kong.
Splendid image, Hugo.

Wonderful light and subjects, Hugo. There are many hydrants in my earlier work. They still fascinate me as little anonymous sculptures throughout the cities, towns, villages, communities, parks, and even farms - throughout the world. I must reincorporate them. Thanks!
