Hong Kong – Macau: A Visual Diary

Last Updated: June 14th, 2018

 

Are you into street photography, and do you think you should take it seriously? Clearly, most people are more of a point-and-shoot kind of person when it comes to taking photos.

Composing a shot back then sounded foreign to me. I used to just clutch my camera around, take the shot and move on. While I don’t consider myself a good photographer–at least not yet– I think I already improved when I started to take photography seriously.

Here are some of the photos during our trip which I don’t think turned out that bad –considering my lack of interest in composing shots back then. This visual diary of our trip to Hong Kong and Macau were taken on November 2013 and March 2016 and were taken mostly with my Fujifilm X100s and my old Nikon.
