I have been enamored with simple and clean Large Format photos lately. Maybe I am getting sick of living in a megacity like Beijing, I don’t know. I wish it was a bit warmer though so I could load up my 4×5 kit and go hiking in the mountains. That is something I really don’t do enough of. I need to change that…
A little bit of a departure for me. Here is some colour shots from my trip. I am not against shooting colour, I just don’t do too much of it. I find shooting colour more difficult that shooting B&W. Everything needs to be more precise or the image lacks punch. I hope I was able to get some punch in these shots.
I never get sick of going to Hong Kong. The place has everything. One thing I miss about Beijing is the green space. Hong Kong has that is spades. Right now, Beijing is in the midst of winter. It’s cold and brown. It will stay like this for months. Then, we’ll have a few weeks of nice green, then the heat and dust will kick in and it will be back to brown. Why did I choose to live in a desert?
On a different tangent, I would love to live on a boat. A small 30′ sail boat would do me just fine. Moor it in Hong Kong and I’d be a happy camper. (captain)
I am starting to plan a trip back to Canada. My passport and visa will expire next year, so it is time to renew both. It’s rather crazy how much this will cost me. With a limited time of two weeks, I’ll have to rush both the passport and visa which pretty much doubles the regular cost. In the end, it will cost more for my documents that for my flight home.
