Hong Kong Candids -Redux
People in the uk are funny... they see you point a camera at them and almost all will get quite uppitty. Hong Kong.. they really didn't care. I'm pleased about that to be honest because I love these shots.
Despite what it looks like I asked permission to take this shot... the girls father was trying to get a nice shot of his wife and daughter and I asked if I could take a couple as well, he said "yes! of course!" The little girl looked straight at us both everyutime we lowered our cameras and looked away every time we raised them... this little game was played for about 5 minutes; truth is we all loved it.
Japenese girls, Originally I'd taken some totally candid shots of these three girls but the niddle one turned and spotted me lowering my camera, suddenly they were all looking at me making victory signs.. it would have been rude not to shoot them.
This was my last evening and I was begining to long for home. I had eaten in the Pizza Express (hey! sometimes you want a taste of home) and this young lady took the seat next to me at the same table (she was offered other tables but chose to join me after asking with a raised eyebrow) We chateed but mainly sat in companionable silence. I snapped this later that evening
I like this shot so much, the girl 2nd from the left saw me frame the shot and you can see her looking at me out of the corner of her eye... it feels like a secret little moment between me and her.
