Around the Temple Street Market
One of the things that drew us back to Hong Kong was the sights and the seafood at the Temple Street Night Market. Last time we’d eaten at the Tong Tai Seafood restaurant and were blown away by the huge tasty scallops and sensational Singapore noodles for dirt cheap. This time around we just had to go back. We were there sorta early this time around. Right when stuff was really starting to come to life. It wasn’t quite as crazy as last time but still a bit hectic. We got the scallops again and a whole cooked fish. I don’t know if it was just nostalgia or what but they didn’t seem quite as good as last time. By no means were they bad just not quite as good as last time. Still enjoyable and afterwards we wandered around for some time just shooting whatever and taking in all the life and the colors.
Here’s a look at some of what we saw around Mong Kok and then Jordan, Yau Ma Tei and the Market itself.
Camera info etc. All shot with Nikon D600, 24mm F1.4 lens and 85mm 1.8 lens. More settings etc can be had by clicking on the image and going to flickr where you can view the exif data. I recently purchased the VSCO Film pack 2 for Lightroom to help speed up processing time. So far I’m really digging it. So much so that when they announced the Film Pack 3 last week for 50% off if you have the other packs I couldn’t resist and got it too. It’s supposed to look like a lot of the Polaroid film emulsions and as one who shoots Polaroid from time to time I’d say it does a pretty good job. They have different strengths and color temps etc so you can get a nice “normal” look up to an extreme almost cross processed or even expired film look. So far it has my approval.
