HONG KONG – Another productive day with my Leica Q. Even worse than yesterday in terms of difficulty of editing. Consider this a mini gallery. If you came here looking for a single picture for today I’m sorry. It usually isn’t like this. I’m now running more than two weeks behind in posting images. I’m catching up by doing two posts a day until I’m only a week behind. Enjoy these images while you have them. There are less productive days ahead.

Day 2164 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.

HONG KONG – People think of places out here in the Far East as close together. It’s actually a long day of travel from Tokyo (where I started this morning) to Hong Kong (where I am now). Typical travel day crud from a photographic standpoint. Still shooting the Leica Q, which is a perfect travel camera.

HONG KONG – A long day of meetings. I managed a walk in the park in front of the Mandarin with my Panasonic GH2.

My personal workout includes a stretching and flexibility routine that draws on elements of yoga, dance and sports stuff but I could work full time for the next 10 years at it and I wouldn’t achieve the level of discipline that this woman has.

HONG KONG – We visited a vast container shipping terminal today. Seemed pretty promising as a subject but the rules of engagement were that we stayed in the bus furnished by management (i’m here on business, not as a photographer). I managed to capture a couple of images despite the limitation with my Panasonic GH2. Moody cranes was about the best I could do – the sky was poor and the light flat. I used high ISO so I could use a fast shutter speed because of the bus’s movement – contributing to the moodiness.

HONG KONG – It’s been a few years since I’ve been in Hong Kong. You would have thought that central Hong Kong was built to it’s maximum density, but there’s a project to “reclaim” land from Victoria Harbor. This made the walk from our hotel (the Mandarin Oriental) to the Star Ferry to cross to Kowloon about 300 yards longer than it used to be – the ferry terminals have been moved. All images with my Panasonic GH2.
