father and son...

Lower deck, Star Ferry, Hong Kong

Some everyday snapshots of people met on the bus and ferry... A series of three; this is the last.

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...

It's years since I was on the Star Ferry, and this makes me want to return to Hong Kong. The b&w tones are very good. There's enough shadow detail to satisfy and there's that hint of the city in the background. Love the composition and capture of the moment.
