Hanging Out In A Hong Kong Park, Kowloon
There is a lot going on in Hong Kong. For the photographer trying to capture something, there is so much of everything, that focus can be compromised.
For a change from the skyline views that follow you everywhere, finding a novel peek of the skyline is not challenging, try an interior perspective from any of the public architectural marvels about town. Kowloon, in central Hong Kong, is a commercial conglomerate, the glue that sticks everything together, consumerism, is pervasive. One finds even the tiniest side street layered up to the sky in signs begging for trade. For a break from the hustle bustle follow the signs to Kowloon Park, easily walkable from anywhere in Tsim Sha Shui. Leave the flashing neon signs, the hawkers (oh, yes, they actually left central HK years ago with upscale market cleansing), the nonstop parade of storefronts on every street, and the shopping crowds (including full regalia wedding parties weaving up Nathan Road on weekends). In Kowloon Park you can find respite from the hysteria, take in a few candids of people enjoying the escape as much as you do, and possibly escape credit card overload. Here locals will be meditating, hanging out, people watching, playing with Dad and doing the same things people do in parks around the world. Relaxing.
