[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was in Hong Kong one time before and I remember the Pier in Kowloon. I liked seeing the older people doing excercises in the morning and the old fishing boats...most of that is gone now. The pier has been rebuilt and is teaming with tourists enjoying the great view.

I did manage to find these two old friends fishing off the new Pier. My lens was fogged up with the warm humid air and I liked the effect which reminded me of my trip years ago.

Hi Roger,
Yeah that part of the pier is no fun. There are still a few places that are more authentic. There you can still find people doing Tai Chi in the morning. The effect of the fogged lens is great and together with the wide aperture it gave it an old look.


I like so much this atmosphere, looks like grain, very interesting.
The b&w is a good choice for this scene, intense.
Excellent work well balanced.

Awesome composition especially in B&W and I like the effect of the hazy and grainy atmosphere on the mood. Very well done, tfs.

Roger. I like the tension between the large bldgs and the fishermen. Best, Phil

Ciao Roger, fashinating composition with fantastic grain, very well done, my friend, ciao Silvio

Bom dia Roger
