Hong Kong Buildings
I know I’m like a dog with a bone when it comes to buildings – but I still get excited by the mix of old and new architecture in Hong Kong. I still stand under the giants and look for a new angle to see them from.
A couple of the leviathans in Central especially excite me and I find myself knowing what time of day to go to them and what type of sky shows them off the best. This is not that strange as I have people seeing pictures of specific buildings and reacting in the same way that I do.
Here are a few recent pictures of the specific buildings in HK that I go back to time after time – Jardine House, IFC, the Emerald City, the old Mandarin in central and a godown in Kwai Hing close to where I work in the New Territories.
These were all taken using a Kiev 4AM rangefinder with a 53/1.8 prime and a separate meter on Fuji Acros Neopan 100. Developed in HC-110 dilution B for 7 minutes at 20 degrees. I removed the odd spec of dust using photoshop but apart from that they remain as taken and developed.
