“Billy Clarke” / 香港人 Hong Kong Humans / SML.20130508.7D.41422.L2.BW

I met Billy Clarke rather randomly—on Instagram.


Most people use social media as an extension of their existing real life contacts, I on the other hand do things in reverse. I find interesting people on social media and then proceed to make human contacts.


Although I have been on Flickr since 2006, I joined only recently in 2012 shortly after moving to Hong Kong. I discovered that Instagram is a great way to know what’s going on about any place quickly and so I think that I found Billy through the #HK tag.


Billy, who works as a writer for many publications in Hong Kong, has now become my eyes-and-years of Hong Kong. It is he who alerted me about USS Peleliu’s arrival at the Harbour City [1]. It was he who gave me the details about the rubber duck [2]. And it was he who told me about the M+ Inflatable sculptures [3].


Every photographer needs a source of good materials, and this 30yo writer in Hong Kong has more than enough to offer. Besides being a good trusty human database, he writes great articles on his blog and has a great sense of humor. Trust that I would be adventuring with him more in the future—stay tuned.
