Blog #113 Umbrella [Series]
Umbrellas are a common site in Asian cities such as Hong Kong. Umbrellas are used to block the hot rays of the sun, keep the pouring rain off of our heads, and occasionally as defence for cans of tear gas shot from the Police during revolutions. We Hongkongers carry an umbrella in our bag at ALL TIMES!
In this week’s blog post, I will share a select few of the images that I have been collecting over the years from Hong Kong. One of the images is from China, see if you can guess which one it is.
If you’ve got a “WR” [weather resistant] camera, head out to make some cool images of people in the rain with umbrellas. I really enjoy street photography especially under these types of conditions. I guess that there is an interesting element or gesture that we only get to see when it rains [or is super hot and sunny].
Whatever your reason, bring that umbrella!
Hey, you never know.
