Street Photography

Hong Kong is one of my favorite places to do street photography because is a city of contrasts, where old and new coexist in a vibrant and dynamic way. This diversity is reflected in the people, the culture, and the architecture.


Hong Kong is a city of vibrant colors, but none is more iconic than red. From the traditional taxis to the Chinese lanterns to the neon lights, red is everywhere in Hong Kong. And for a photographer, it’s a feast for the eyes.

One of the subjects that caught my attention the most is the red taxis of Hong Kong because they are one of the city’s most iconic symbols. They’re everywhere, zipping through the streets like colorful beetles, and adding a pop of color to the city’s streets.

Overall, I had an amazing time shooting red in Hong Kong. It’s a city that’s full of life and color, and it’s a photographer’s paradise.


Hong Kong is a great place for street photography because it is a city full of life and energy. There is always something to see and do, and the people are generally friendly and welcoming. This makes it a great place to practice your street photography skills and capture the unique spirit of Hong Kong.
