Making sense of my photography hobby in retirement

Morning Papers

Newspaper Man, Star Ferry Pier, Kowloon, Hong Kong, China, Copyright Chris Gregory 2012

Here is another image of my visit to Hong Kong in 2009.  As is usual during any visit to a new area I tend to wake early and go for a walk with my camera.  After a night of high winds and pouring rain the morning dawned fine and the area sparked in its newly washed state.  The Star Ferry Pier was any easy walk from our hotel.  People poured onto and off the ferries as they plied the  routes across the harbour.  At the entrance to the terminal building newspaper vendors set out the morning editions of English and Chinese language newspapers ready to catch the passing trade.  As this man and his papers were in a patch of morning sun he caught my attention.  It is one of my favourite Hong Kong images because for me it captured a bit of Hong Kong life at my favourite time of the day.
