"glorious fast food"

Posted by hugo poon (hong kong, Hong Kong) on 20 August 2011 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Ladder Street is a street consisting entirely of (1000+)"steps"... And at the top of the "ladder" is this glorious fast food!:-)

"Colours of the Street" (ii)

While I do admire b&w works... interestingly the "colours" on the street just keep fascinating me.:-)

Ladder Street, Sheung Wan, 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...

@ordinaryimages: Trust me, local people really enjoy this!

Very interesting to see each country street art, yours is so different than ours (or the contrary ;) and i love that drawing along with the muted lights here in your fab compo that offers such a rich palette of colors, it's so full of details for the eyes and the fast food joined to the fast bus passing by in the extreme right side of the frame is the burger on top of the cake ;) Have a nice pause my dear*

@k@: Glad you like this too k@! Not only was I attracted by the drawing but I also felt a strong urge to document this local shop - buildings and original shops in the locality are being replaced by highend ones in an amazing pace! You too have a lovely break!:-)

A feast for the eye, Hugo. This looks great, and the larger one looks better. What a fantastic combination of colors and lights in this image! Fantastic job. Have a great weekend.

The place looks filthy - not sure if I would eat there myself? But I trust your judgement, I'm sure the food goes down well :-) Nice capture. Have a nice weekend Hugo!
