I enjoyed a whirlwind photo walk in TST and Mong Kok for a few hours before flying home. I logged 9.2 miles of walking and got some interesting close-up shots. I used the 14mm f2.8 lens on the Fuji X-Pro2 for all of these images.
Ningbo was cold and crappy – except for one day, which was like a glimpse of spring. But it was just a tease.
The weather was warm and it felt great to get out and shoot. This is my first trip with the X-Pro2 and a bag of lenses and it was amazing! I spent most of the trip experimenting with settings and lenses.
I was lazy and didn’t get out to the Qingxi wet market early in the morning like I usually do, but there is always activity there and an opportunity for street photos. I also stopped briefly in Shenzhen and got out for a couple hours.
Another stop in Yangjiang and I wandered down into the old part of the city for a few photos. I’m experimenting with Fuji’s 56mm f1.2 lens for street photography. All of these photos were shot wide open at either f1.2 or f1.4. Two words – Not easy. […]
Not China, but it sure does feel like Hong Kong – and an amazing place for street photography. Kuala Lumpur is a melting pot in Malaysia, with people from all over Asia and the west. It’s also an incredibly cheap place for a holiday. We stayed in an AirBnB one block from the main bar […]
I was in Ningbo twice on this trip. Nice stays, but not a very good hit rate on street photos. Win a few and lose a few.
The weather was GORGEOUS and I was able to spend 5 hours enjoying some street photography before my flight back to the US. I was staying in TST and took the MTR up to Mong Kok to grab some shots in the shopping district.
This was my third trip to Beijing. Each time I see the same sights, so this time I was prepared to get some decent photos because I’ve already done the scouting.
It was blazing hot in Yangjiang this July. I was only able to get out for street photos a couple times because it was raining so much and my schedule was nuts. Heat + rain = humidity. Not great for lenses sitting in an overly air conditioned hotel room. I had to preheat my camera before shooting.
I’m pretty sure my design associate and I were the cause of a beer shortage in Ningbo in late June. Sorry about that city of Ningbo. Work hard – play hard.
I went to Qingxi to celebrate the fourth of July with a group of expat friends. I also made my usual tour of the town for street photos. It never disappoints.
I made a few quick stops in Shekou in between trips to Yangjiang, Ningbo and Qingxi. Lots of cities on this trip.
We ditched-out of Yangjiang for an afternoon in Zhapo on the South China Sea. A day at the beach is very different in China compared to the US.
We took a great walk through the Ladies Market in Mongkok before dinner. I love the energy of that area of Hong Kong. It’s an incredibly target-rich area and home to a couple great camera stores. What else could you ask for?
I made my usual stop in Ningbo and took photos near my usual shopping mall (Wanda Plaza). Except for the people in the photos it looks like the photos could have been taken in Minneapolis.
More photos from the Seaworld area in Shekou. Very cool area of Shenzhen with lots of stuff going on at night.
I was in Hong Kong on the first and last day of my month long trip – which is my typical routine since I fly in and out of Hong Kong. I LOVE this city. So much energy! So much great material for street photography!
Lots and lots of rain in Ningbo. It never stopped. So I spent my time shooting inside a mall or out in the rain.
I’ve driven by Macau about 30 times over the last four years and each time I think “I should make a side trip to Macau sometime”. Well this year I finally pulled the trigger and spent a couple days in the old city a few days before Chinese New Year. It was a mob scene.
I often go to Southern China in January to escape the winter in Minneapolis. This year winter followed me to China and I witnessed the first snow in Shenzhen in over 40 years. I had to go out and buy a freaking winter coat because it got so cold. Not exactly the escape I had […]
I had a few hours in Hong Kong on my way home and grabbed some street photos after dinner. It was a really great trip and this was the icing on the cake. Once again, these were all taken with a small Nikon P7800 with an extra on-camera flash and not my usual big DSLR as an experiment.
I absolutely love southern China in October and early November. The humidity and big heat are gone. You can actually walk around in the middle of the day instead of hiding in an air conditioned office or hotel. That meant I could get out and enjoy lots of street photography without my lens fogging.
My trip took me to both Ningbo & Guangzhou where I stayed at hotels that were both next to a Wanda Mall. This is a chain of upscale malls where China’s middle class goes to spend the money they’ve earned from Walmart.
