Suppressing our emotion is a good way to show ourselves being in control. While not emotionally attached to a specific set of photos, may very well leads to a higher quality to the collection. Once in a while, It’s not particularly a bad idea when the material working with is already contrasty as a day that’s almost in monochrome. The entire world was underexposed. It became quite a ‘fun’ challenge to myself – It’s how I would describe the afternoon with typhoon signal no.3 in force.
As much as the expected rain had yet to come, I made my way to the Kwun Tong Ferry Pier. I like visiting the harbor front whether it’s a good or bad day. I just did and I knew there’s always someone, something right there despite the expected poor weather condition.
I wandered through the former industrial area (now mostly rented as offices which is very common as most factories have migrated to Mainland China long ago since the 90s). In just a few blocks I arrived at the harbor front. It’s one of the few locations where anyone can kick back and relax in the city.
Further down, there was the recreational area. I was heading there and just in time I made it half way to the public pier. I did not intend to stay longer than 2 mins at the pier until the rain started to pour. At some point, the visibility was so low that I couldn’t even see anything but the rain. The gusty wind started to catch up as well. I saw birds flying without moving, hanging in the sky. The cruel nature gave no mercy to the little life.
