Tai Po Market (大埔舊墟), Hong Kong

Recently got around to scanning the Yashica Mat-124G negatives taken during Chinese New Year in Hong Kong.

Even with the instant feedback and convenience of digital systems, it is another beast altogether to use the light-meter, set all the dials, cock the shutter, and focus on the subject.

I ventured out to Tai Po Market one Sunday just to wander around the local parks and markets.

The elderly looking after their grandchildren.

Others playing ‘bone’ cards, a traditional Chinese card game.

Convenience store in the midst of government housing.

Roasted chestnuts are great in the cold weather!

A lot of people were buying groceries for New Years family gatherings.

    Love these shots, you certainly have an eye for the ordinary lives of people (markets!), and apparently cats as well haha.

    Man, I gotta go out and shoot some more!
