    RattyMouse,

    Nice set of unusual shops and wares. Leaves so many questions...

    Are the turtles for pets? Food?

    Is that a wall of goldfish in baggies?

    Scenes like this all around must seem strange to you. Or are you getting used to it by now?

    Thanks for looking.

    These turtles were for pets although I suppose once out of the store anything is possible. The street was all aquatic life stores, so yes, that was a wall of fish in baggies.

    No, Hong Kong is not strange to me. This was my 21st trip to the territories and I know the place pretty well. I carry a map with me when hiking but rarely need it.

    My favorite city in the world.

    Let me point out that the first and last image were from the aquatic store street. The middle 3 images were from a market in Wan Chai (far away). I should have arranged these better.

    Hello Ratty, very good street pics. Love the sharpness of them.
    Digital is best taken with a grain of silver.

    Hong Kong

    One of my favorite cameras and favorite films......oh, and one of my favorite places too. Used to go there on business every 4-6 weeks back in the late 90's when I was living in Beijing for a few years. Haven't been for a long time. Miss it a lot. Very nice shots.

    Thanks. I think Hong Kong is the best place in the world to walk around with a camera. I can do it day after day after day.

    Hong Kong is a cool place, Ive been like 2 or 3 times, but havent now in maybe 10+ years. Great images, those little mini cakes that the lady in the second picture is making are delicious. Reminds me of this one shop in nyc's chinatown where customers would line up around the block by Columbus park to buy them from this womans tiny hole in the wall shop which was curiously located on a very slanted street, quite odd for a place downtown. Well she made a fortune on them and closed shop. Now there are little stands that sell em for $1 for 20/15 or so, but they dont taste the same. I wonder how they taste in HK.
