"emergency exit"

Posted by hugo poon (hong kong, Hong Kong) on 16 February 2010 in Transportation and Portfolio.

Through the rear window of a double-decker...

Nathan Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong

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...

In this photo you put two things together, the Hong Kong night cityscape and the tramway. Well done.

You know I love arrows in images - this is really nice. Attention to sharpness and detail carry the image well.

The colours and the ambient light are rendered well, even the back seat of the bus shows up clearly. It's a lovely night shot of the street with friendly looking shops.

Excellent shot! Great lighting and to think you took it 'through' a glass. Very well done

I absolutely love how you have framed this! Your use of the night light as well as in the inside showing us the 'emergency exit' sign makes this superb! Love it Hugo!

If they don't stop at the Body Shop, pull that handle! Another nice one, Hugo.

Great street photo. I love the neon glow an it's reflected light. From a technical standpoint both the outside and inside are perfectly exposed. A job well done. I love your street stories.

These street views that you take through the window of a tram or bus really make me feel like I'm actually there with you Hugo!

Makes you think that if this is what an alien first saw if they landed would this be the first shop they would go to?
At least the arrow is pointing in the right direction
