Nathan Road, Hong Kong

    “This is heaven for street photographer” was my first impression when i hit Mongkok & Nathan road in Hong Kong. The city is too busy for them to ‘care’ about us. They don’t mind when we point on our viewfinder. Everyone having walk in Nathan road, not only teenagers but also some very old mens. Hong Kong is great place for you that love to walk. In case you are tired, you can go down to the subway, and buy ticket for your trip.
    I was upset when i wasn’t able to take some pictures in ladies market. I was blinded by the need buying some unique things there.

    Here are some of my photos in Nathan Road;

Far from camera

Here, in the middle of wasting time waiting for another flight, i stared at a guy who bring his mirror-less camera.
A moment, i miss for what i used to be, and i start questioning myself, why now, i rarely bring my camera on hand. Even one of my friends said to me that i’m far from my camera now.

    Meanwhile, a few hours ago, in the plane, i read the review about X-pro1. Is my curiosity for photography only ended up on hunting new camera? Instead of taking picture and posting it to the web?
    And deep in my mind, i know i’ll be foolish to buy the expensive X-pro1.

I start hating myself for not often in taking pictures anymore. Is this because i’m no longer involved in the photographer community?
I remember that the community who built me up loving photography.
But to make it as an excuse, is like cheating to myself.

    So why? Why i stop taking pictures?
    May be the reason why is not important, and the important and also the hardest thing for all action is to start.

Ya, that’s right. i need to start without questioning the reason why i stop.
