20+ years ago again
In 1997 – 1998 I visited Hong Kong for 3 months, staying in Tai Po Market and spending my days wandering and wandering and wandering… And now, next week (24th October 2018) I am returning again. Alas not for 3 months; 12 nights will have to do this time. Last time i made-do with my eyes and a series of cheap *disposable plastic cameras to log the scenes i saw, this time i will be fully-armed with 2 Fujifilm cameras (X100F & X-T2) and a large selection of cheap and expensive lenses; nothing will escape my beady eyes… or that’s the plan anyway. Mr Andrew Welford will be my comrade for the trip, we will be staying in Wan Chai (Dorsett Hotel) overlooking Happy Valley and 3 cemeteries, so please give us a poke if you see us.
