Fishmen, living on boats for can't afford the apartments on land...
Jardines noonday gun, funny custom!
Gunshot is nothing...
Come on, perfect weather for sailing...
Dancing arrows! :)
I'm confused with the white boat...

Sir, what do you want to tell us?
Obviously people prefer the waterfront...

Once, a friend of mine said to me, my photography generally is OK, but some pictures are not accurate enough, like the focus, like the balance of composition, like the preliminary subject... I appreciate so many professional suggestions from him, and he is one of the photography fever patients i known. It can be judged directly from his equipments, supporter, films, all sorts of lenses for all kinds of occasions, several camera-companions, preparing overnight for one satisfied sunrise image... I really admire his attitude of devotion.
But for me, i admit my photography is rough, sometimes a little bit obscure, but i just enjoy the moment of shooting, the atmosphere from lens... Camera is like my third eye, I'm not a rational machinist, the results of photography are always surprise... That's mean sometimes i thought that would be a nice one, but it turned out average; while sometimes i shot by chance, but proved to be an incredible one... I would never know the answer in advance, the only thing i can do is just keeping shooting... Also sometimes, the story is really what i'm concerning about, not only the visual scenery.
That's not my excuse for the loose works. Maybe comparable to the painting, his work is like classical oil-painting, mine is more like sketching; or on the other words, his is like a movie made in Hollywood by Dream Works, whereas mine is more like an independent film; his is from album disc, mine is from live show... Anyway, we are just for fun, ain't we? :)

a dream is the relief of overload for the unspoken promises;
and a promise is the access of spirit for the immortalized hopes.

This is also a part of real Hong Kong, not only fancy cars, smart white-collars and luxury brands. Urban design, distinguished from all the other fashionable designs, is concerned to care for the fragile group, and can't be only served for the hierarchy. This is a real responsible field. Deterioration, that's social phenomena, even we are reluctant to face it sometimes.
I have heard a joke, for some reasons, it is always eventually architect become artist while urban planner unfortunately become politician... Urban design is happened to be between... God, sounds terrible futures for both!
But, who can tell me why Ram Koolhass is called politician now? Politicize, shall we?

If sunset's opposite is sunrise, does it account?
Man, did you ever feel lonely?
Where's beyond this ocean?
