Sheung Wan, Hong Kong 2015 | Minolta X-700, Kodak ColorPlus 200
Hong Kong is what I call my second home. Ever since I can remember, my family and I have been going back and forth a couple of times a year to visit. With my mom's office based in Lantau, we usually stay during the summers and holidays. Only the past year did my sister and I start exploring and braving the city streets on our own, trying to discover fresh venues for shoot locations and go to various shops we've been eyeing out and restaurants and cafés we've been wanting to try. With the country's convenient transport system, it's easy to go anywhere, even those that are far off from our place.
Sheung Wan, located in Hong Kong Island, is a district bustling with art scene. Full of murals and dotted with galleries and hole-in-the-wall pubs, it's an area that screams to be admired and noticed. In the two previous posts, I recounted our experience in the city where we visited art galleries and stumbled upon art murals along the way, getting lost and meeting folks in the process.
To wrap up our series of sightseeing in Sheung Wan, here are a couple of film shots I took during the trip. I lugged my film camera around with me that day in hopes of capturing the scenery. Despite the fact that I'm still trying to familiarize myself with the manual settings of Minolta, I still love how the photos turned out. Some are a bit off and the majority are washed down but it gives it a more authentic and dreamy feel, which is how I definitely describe that day.
