  2. Chun Wo Construction - Central, Hong Kong

    Like every big city, Hong Kong is always constantly improving itself. Whether building the world’s tallest buildings or just fixing a pothole, construction workers are at work 24 hours a day. It’s not surprising to see someone welding in the wee hours of the morning, and it’s the hard work of these worker that keep the city going.

  3. Thoughts at Sea - Cebu, Philippines

    More shots from the Olango-Mactan ferry. For some mysterious reason, the cloudy skies were providing some great light.

  4. Photoshoot - Olango Island, Philippines

    Not to be racist or anything but Filipinos seem to love taking photos. No matter where they are, whether at a restaurant, hotel or airport, they always seem to have their cameras and cameraphones out, snapping pictures of each other. This was also the case when I was travelling through Vietnam and it makes for subjects that are more than happy to have their photo taken.

  5. Walking on Water - Olango Island Bird Sanctuary, Philippines

    It’s quite a journey getting to this sanctuary but as you’ll see in the next few photos that I’ll post, it’s definitely worth it. To start, you’ll have to get to Cebu somehow, whether by plane, bus or boat. From there, take a taxi to the Mactan Hilton (now the Movenpick) pier and then get on a ferry to Olango Island. From there, you’re still quite a ways from the sanctuary. What we did was rent a motorbike from our hotel (these are typically of the semi-automatic variety) but you could hire a motorized tricycle to take you there. Once there, pay the entrance fee, follow the guide, and you’ll be immediately transported to paradise.

  7. Businessman - Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong

    What is a businessman? Is it a profession? A designation? A subculture? I think it’s gotten to the point where it’s turned to a sub-culture of sorts. Business people (political correctness OFY) already have their own language, traditions and hierarchy. All they need is a PhD to come by and write an extensive paper on them…

  8. Tourists, Tourists Everywhere - Tsim Sha Tsui, Central

    While there’s much to be said about the financial benefits of tourism, tourists are a little bit of a sticky issue in Hong Kong. With more and more businesses catering to tourists and heavily clogged sidewalks and roads, the city’s residents are getting irked at the huge number of tourists descending from the city, particularly those from mainland China. As with any hot issue, there are two sides to the story, and retailers are more than happy to welcome them. Whatever the case, the issue of tourism should be looked at more closely, with attention paid to the affect on environments, whether urban or natural.

  9. Grandpa Cool - Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

    I’ve passed by this gentlemen a few times now and he’s always there with a stern look and his dark shades. People pass him by, barely noticing him but he still stands there day after day. I have the urge to ask him what his story is but I suspect he wouldn’t be too appreciative of that…

  10. Parenting - Causeway Bay, Hong Kong

    I’m not quite sure what to say about this photo. Perhaps it’s a somewhat grim reflection on the society we live in now. It would seem that the family is supposed to be spending some time together but they’re all in their own little worlds. The mom is on her phone, perhaps talking to her friends or checking some email. The son is just bored or daydreaming while the daughter just looks up at her mom, waiting. It’s not just their expressions  but the fact that they’re so far apart. Although they should be together as a family, why have they chosen to be physically away from each other?
