The Fujinon was once the everyday lens on my X-E2, but since I wanted to challenge myself with another focal length, I have left it on my desk in favour of my Touit 32mm F1,8. Unfortunately, the 32mm is slow to focus and I’ve lost many decisive moments as I try to compose on this […]Read More Visiting Soho, revisiting Fujinon XF18mm F2
This year marks my 4th year with my Fujifilm X/ Zeiss Touit setup, and recently I’ve been playing with the idea of switching to the holy grail – Leica M. The thing with the M system is that almost all the lenses are manual focus only prime lenses, so I’ve been training myself to get […]Read More 50mm Street photography
Late October isn’t exactly a flowering season in the Northern hemisphere, yet this orchid tree down the scenic Sha Wan Drive in Pokfulam went against all odds as the only tree that blossoms… From a distance, bauhinia looks pretty much like cherry blossom, at least in terms of colour tone of the flowers, but up […]Read More Street photography: The bauhinia that decided to go against all odds
Last Sunday, I went hiking with a friend (who happens to be a fellow Fujifilm X shooter as well). We brought along our cameras as usual, his being the mighty X-T2 and 10-24mm F4 & 56mm F1,2; for me, I’ve settled with my usual X-E2 and here’s the challenge – Zeiss Touit 32mm F1,8. The […]Read More Conquering West Buffalo Hill with one camera and one lens (Fujifilm X-E2 + Zeiss 32mm F1,8)
Was strolling around the (tourist-infested) Central Pier after work the other day, got a few shots that turned out rather well, and here they are…Read More Central Pier, Hong Kong (and some thoughts on the Fujifilm X-E2)

Read Part I here Recently, I have been trying to develop my own style of street photography – apart from shooting photos of interesting-looking people, I am working on the composition and colour. Like I have mentioned in the previous post, I am restricting myself to my Zeiss 32mm F1,8 (50mm equivalent in 135 format). […]Read More Limiting myself to one camera and one lens (Part II)
As I tried to summarise what I’ve done so far this year, I suddenly realised: how the hell could I have missed out the photos from my trip to the West Coast earlier this year! Although it was meant to be a business trip rather than a holiday, it was great fun nonetheless, having the […]Read More Travel Photography: Las Vegas/ Grand Canyon/ Napa Valley (Part I of III)

Street performances are arguably one of the most popular and clichéd street photography topic. I must admit I’m also guilty for this, but who else on the street’s more willing to be shot than a busker? You ain’t gonna be told off, no one’s gonna mistaken you as a creepy psychopath, most performers don’t mind whilst some […]Read More Street photography? Or just random photos of random buskers?
