A local noodle shop, Queen's Road Central, Hong Kong

Streets, shops, people, life... another series of my everyday encounter.

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...

Ox stomach is one traditional dish in Portugal, not cooked in the same way, for sure.
Well done.

The limited range of colors, the bright light and the sharpness all add up to a very pleasing image.

Thanks anyway, I'll stick to the noodles. I must admit, though, that it looks kind of good. Great shot of these interesting textures.

Not tried it, but I've grown to learn that everything tastes better in Hong Kong the more I visit.
Great composition, and the old man harmonises the scene perfectly.

I guess ox-stomach would translate here in the north of England as 'tripe' but I doubt very much that it would taste the same :-)

Lovely shot Hugo!

I think I'll skip the main course and have noodles only, please. I agree with everyone, that one guy sitting there is a great point of interest in this excellent composition.
