Faces On Friday - On The Ferry - Hong Kong




When I was last in Hong Kong visiting my daughter we took a public ferry that just operates on Public Holidays and at the weekends from Sai Kung Pier to Yim Tin Tsai a deserted island, which is now a tourist attraction.  I plan to write about the island for my next Travel Tales post.

Our fellow passengers I think make interesting subjects for Faces On Friday. If I was a writer I think they would be a good starting point for a story!

Update March 18th 2014 I have now published my post entitled Yim Tin Tsai - Abandoned Island - Hong Kong

  12. What a brilliant idea for a story (you should have a go, if even in photo assigning and not in words). And how fun that the ferry is there for the weekends!! What fun to sneak a photo or two. I' m too sensitive about other's privacy. I just can't take a shot without asking. Maybe that's an okay thing?

    1. Mel it is a nice idea, but not for me. What is photo assigning? I try to be very discreet when I take photos from a distance and if I am close up I do always ask permission. People are usually delighted and love to see the photo on the camera afterwards.

  15. They are an interesting group.... I too make up stories about people (in my head) when I'm in crowds. But I can't seem to take a decent picture of a human being...whether family friend or stranger. I wish I could.

  16. it is always fascinating to "people watch". The hard part is to take pics without them knowing. I tried this a bit in SIngapore last year. I know a photographer who did this for several months on the underground railway and made a whole photo story about it. I am sure your subjects would make an interesting start to a story Linda.

Welcome to my photography blog, where I share the world as seen through my lens. All commenter's will receive a visit back from me but no longer individual replies unless you have a question, which I will respond to here. Your praise and kind words are always appreciated but to keep saying thankyou to you all individually, in an original way is not easy. So I am saying it here instead, a massive thankyou from my heart for all the wonderful support, your comments are a great encouragement to me.
