I know it doesn't look it, but it was almost dark and I didn't have a tripod. The only way I could get a clear enough shot was by having the aperture wide open... even then this was a one second shot. It looks crap and I don't know what to do about it. I should have gone back the next day but didn't have time. If anyone has any idea on how this could be improved upon, please let me know.


This is the famous "Wedding Card Street" in Wan Chai, Hong Kong. It used to be full of shops offering wedding card printing services and all sorts of other wedding stuff. There were a few pretty good eateries there too. It was such a thriving part of town. But now the whole street is closed for redevelopment. Businesses and residents were forced to move. If you walk there at night there is only darkness. It is just really sad. All this will be gone soon.
