It's late and I had to go... As I was leaving, I looked back and was captivated once again by this colourful street corner!

Better view the Larger

Pak Sha Road, Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

An atmospheric side street in this busy shopping district that I've been trying to photograph. However, don't know why, can't remember getting shots I really like until this night... BTW, my friend's "new camera" didn't let me down.:-)

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 really is a captivating image. Photographically and humanely. The richness of colors, lights and histories is fascinating, and your superb capture of it is a feast for the eyes. Besides, the seated people on the pavement and sidewalks gives a great atmosphere of humane contact in this neighborhood. Reminds me of my neighborhood 40 years ago in the hot summer nights. Now it is over. Thanks for sharing these images.

So much static energy in this . . makes me so conscious of the use of light.

Good night shot. I like the people sitting on small chairs on the empty, it looks a bit weird (to me), but why not.
