“Two Old Ladies”
Leica-M Summilux 35mm f1.4 ASPH II + M Monochrom

Happy Chinese New Year of the Snake!

I love taking photos on the street and living in Hong Kong give me plenty of time to do that. Of course I love it and I ask myself why? Well, the answer is simple, because life is always interesting. However, when you living in the urban jungle for too long, you want to shot something else. So, during the Chinese New Year, I went visiting villages in Fujian, China, the land of Oolong Tea.

When I shot this picture, it was Chinese New Year and there were firecrackers everywhere but somehow this two village ladies just sat there and watch the world going on. however, you will see the Chinese New Year celebration poster up there on the wall in red, gold.

This photo was taken by Leica M Monochrom, which shots in black and white with Orange filter. It was a unique machine which brings me back to the old days of shooting black & white film. I shot it like I was shooting with an analogue camera, taking my time, just like the two ladies there and wait for the right moment and take the snap. And yes, it was not only I return home and look at the photo, I can see the details and tonality. Edited in Lightroom 4.2 and Silver Efex Pro 2.
