I recently went for a vacation in Hong Kong with my wife. I usually do portraits of people on the street. I talk to them, ask some stuff about what they do then ask them if I can take a portrait of them. It gives me more story to my images and learn more about the place.
A small used stuff store in Central, Hongkong. He was really nice to let me take a photo of him.
I always observe random people when travelling and I noticed that a lot of them are looking down.. looking down at their mobile phones. So I thought of shooting people on their mobile phone.
Looking for her partner
It became addictive for me. I began shooting a lot of people on their mobile phones. While browsing through my pictures, I saw photos that looks connected so I tried to combine them.
Why can’t we talk

Today, we are too attached to our mobile devices. Sometimes we just have to look infront of us, on our side, or above us to appreciate life.
I am glad that I took these photos. Of course, I did took some other photos. We just have to look around to find something interesting to shoot.
All photos are taken using my Fujifilm X100T which is the only camera I brought for this trip. It is an amazing camera for candid photos. It is fast, silent and jpegs are great. One thing I wish was a Fujifilm TCL-X100 for some closer shots. The 23mm focal length can be too wide for some shots. I also did minor adjustment in Lightroom for some of the photos.
Here are more photos.
