photoblog image HK Day3: Quarry Bay another one

HK Day3: Quarry Bay another one

To get here, I took the tram from Kennedy Town to Shau Kei Wan to Tai Koo station. A short walk leads to the courtyard, surrounded by symmetrical buildings, chequered with balconies, windows and over-hanging air-conditioning units. I saw professional as well as amateur photographers getting their versions. It took a bit of walking around the neighborhood to get a feel of the local "mom-and-pop" businesses and the residents amusing themselves with some banter or board games. And this young lady was having several go-s  at perfecting her shots. So, I helped myself to this.

You description portrays life there very well. I like the point of focus, too; the buildings providing a good backdrop.
Ayush Basu: Just happened to be at that spot at an opportune moment, Alan! And I like the human component of this place.
this is an amaaaazing picture... it reminds me something, not sure what?? like she is standing in front of a wall of polaroids... she is so sharp in the picture against the mysterious background! lovely

What a great picture and description Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Anne, for the kind comment.
Neat shot, Ayush - I hope you bought the lady a coffee for acting as model smile
Ayush Basu: I would, Tom, but she was absorbed in her shots and her poses grin
Excellent image Ayush, you certainly had an eye for a pretty face to include in your photo.
Ayush Basu: I have to admit I do not have her specific consent for that, Brian!
i would say that your portrait of the young lady was worth the effort of photographing the square Ayush....petersmile
Ayush Basu: Thank you for helping me look at the bright side, Peter.
You enjoy exploring just like we do, so much better than just doing the tourist hot spots.
Ayush Basu: Spot on, Martin!

Ayush Basu: I agree, Beth. And thank you for the compliment!
That is a fabulous background for a portrait. Very nicely shot.
Ayush Basu: I am delighted with your feedback, Michael.
