Highlights from Lan Kwai Fong

Posted by
Ian Smith (London, United Kingdom) on 22 January 2012 in Documentary & Street and Portfolio.

Heading off the main road, Hugo takes me on a quiet cut-through off Wyndham Street with a view above D'Aguilar Street (Lan Kwai Fong). This old lamp post and it's low wattage bulb was great!
And if you haven't seen it already - Hugo shot me in the back here.

@sunstonemaria: Thanks Maria - though I must add that this shot was taken off the busy street down a quiet back route.

Exquisite details and brilliant framing Ian! The air of nostalgia and abstraction of the city night mood are just beautiful! Can't tell you how I enjoy seeing these familiar places through your artistic eye! Refreshing!:-)

@hugo poon: Thank you Hugo. I certainly do not have your patient eye - I was like a mad man with a semi-automatic shooting anything and everything that caught my eye, as I knew this would be my only opportunity to do a night stroll around here in a long while. I hope you and others enjoy this series as much as me.

I love how you have used the lamp post and its string of lights to tie all of the various elements together. I was expecting something along more simplistic lines when I saw Hugo's shot of you the other day.

I especially admire the crisp light and detail of that string of lanterns against the texture of the street and the wide wall. It's such a pleasure to see your shots of Hugo-land. What fun.
