I didn’t particularly enjoy my trip to Hong Kong but I was pretty surprised to find that the yellow umbrella movement was going on and going strong.
It was very surreal to witness first hand what I had been reading about in the news for months and to photograph the protest. A mini clash between the protesters broke out in which the police then proceeded to shut down the entire street.
The police force deserves some credit for making sure that none of the civilians were harmed during the clash as I even overheard one who was moaning about how he was looking forward to dinner with his wife when the clash broke out and he had to work overtime.
In any case, it looks like the movement will not be going away any time soon.
The Yellow Umbrella Movement
Also, as part of the Valentine’s Day Photo Feature special, my images from the essay: Love Will Find A Way was published in the República in Nepal (Page 8).
Merry Valentine everyone(:

Great shots of the umbrella movement. You’re right, it doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere soon. They are so determined to fight for their rights. Congratulations on the publication 🙂
Thank you so much Mabel(:
You are so fortunate to live such a free creative life and share such wonderful photos.
Yes I am very blessed!
I hope my letter got to you safely.
It’s surreal to see my favorite shops and streets in such a state. Amazing photos!
Thanks Mr Tay!
surprise to see that.
which cam are you using?
Thank you, I was very surprised to know that it was still going on after so long too.
I worked with my Leica M-E and a 35mm Summilux.
Great to know that some one is still using it too. Can I meet up to learn your photography experience
