After more than year of silence for various reasons, I’m writing a post on this blog. I’m ready to share again some of the pictures I shot in the previous months. In November I went to Hong-Kong, my first vacations alone, and when I went through my pictures of Hong-Kong I realized I managed to shoot quite a lot of picture with only one person in the frame. When you know that Hong-Kong has the one of the highest density of population in the world, I find this quite odd but the pictures resume perfectly my vacations : alone, but still, surrounded by millions.

This place is just unbelievable and had a great time walking in the busy streets with my Leica around my neck trying to capture the unique atmosphere of this city/country. After visiting Japan I’m definitely so in love with Asia. Within a few minutes of walking you can go from the super crowded and oppressing modern neighborhoods, to quiet and traditional areas.

Shot with my Leica M6, on Kodak TriX 400, Portra 400 and Fuji Superia 400. Processing and scanning made by Carmencita Film Lab.

Usually when you need to take public transportation you think about subway, tramway or busses. In Oslo it’s a little bit different as boats are part of the public transportation network. For the price of a bus ticket you can make a small cruise in the Oslo bay in a boat that goes from island to island (this is one of the few cheap things to do in Oslo).

As usual, the light was really beautiful and the contrast between the colorful houses, the deep blue sea, the low sun and the sky allows to shoot some cool pictures.

The architecture of this building is really amazing and is now a trademark of Oslo’s landscape. There are so many compostions to try, each perspective of the building makes it unique, the light can change the place dramatically. I wish I would have tried some long exposures too (maybe next time ?)…
