Photographer's Note

A typical scene of a Mainland Chinese tourist having her picture taken in front of the Christmas decorations in Hong Kong's Times Square (Shopping mall) in Causeway Bay.

I confess that this isn't amongst my better pics but I was eager to post it for this was my first shot from my first time doing street photography with a medium format camera.

It is surprisingly easy to use on the street, that is, once I've become used to the manual focusing and exposure. Also, by looking down at the viewfinder (instead of through the viewfinder when using a SLR), people were much less aware of you shooting at them, thus more 'covert' - despite its huge size.

This was actually shot on a colour negative but the colours were rather washed out, so I changed it to BW in Photoshop and added some contrast.

Was scanned from print processed by a lab, but they didn't print it on square paper so it was cropped.
