    Hong Kong

    Thanks to the workings of fate, my holiday trip to Hong Kong coincided with the huge democracy protests that have erupted. I've spent the last two days photographing the protesters in Mong Kong and on Hong Kong island (near Admirality). Almost 20 rolls of film shot, all of it black and white because that's what I can process at home. My color film has to be done in a lab and since I live in China, sending film like that in is NOT going to happen. I also normally send my black and white negatives in for scanning, since I do not have nor know how to operate a film scanner. Again, THAT isn't going to happen in China since these photographs are of a VERY sensitive topic.

    So sadly, it will be a looooong time before I can properly view my images.

    On the plus side, my duo of Fuji GF670 and GF670W are EXCELLENT reportage cameras.

    Contact labs in HK, I bet they can do it and send you a thumb drive back. Color Six on Wellington St is what I use. If that doesn't work, send them to me and I will do it for you.

    The world needs to see.

    Mark my words.....democracy is coming to China in our lifetime......the people have had it with Communism.......fight the good fight and take lots of pictures. You will have failed if you dont blow through all of your film there. The world needs to see....the people waking up.

    buy a cheap scanner. 6x7 film will still look pretty good. basic scanning is as easy as making a photocopy.

    Try Tung Fong Photo - ph: 852-2384 7198 - I got this from a friend, he has used them before but thinks they may have moved since he last used them, so call and verify that A: they're still open, and B: what is their current address.

    No commies in China. The leadership is a collection of Nazis who will cling to power over every Chinese persons' dead bodies, if need be. Wake up and smell the cordite.

    The same friend who passed me the name of the lab STRONGLY recommended that you have the film processed/printed/scanned in HK, then ship the film home to someone in the US who can keep it for you, because the PRC customs/border control people will be aggressively searching for anything relating to the HK protests and seizing it. Best to keep any copies of scans on an external thumb drive or CD that you can easily surrender, instead of having your laptop confiscated.

    Be careful, on a T.V. news show last night showed footage that the Chinese authorities are using drones to do surveillance on the crowds to identify them.
