The Markets of Mongkok
Go down the right alley in Mongkok and you can find a market selling everything you want. All other alleys and streets have more markets to sell you even more stuff.
Taking photos at the different markets in Mongkok is one of my favorite things to do in Hong Kong, it is great just strolling around but by taking photos it makes me focus more on the individual interactions.
Some of my favorite markets are the bird and the fish and aquarium markets. The bird market especially is a nice mix between a park, temple and market all in one.
Of course, a highlight are also the fish markets although some places might not be ideal for people who don't like to see blood.
The markets also change a bit throughout the day so you get a different atmosphere depending when you there.
This was one of the busiest days in terms of photography and I ended up with lots of photos but also with all Epson RD-1 batteries being dead by the evening so I switched to the Ricoh GR.
I could have taken way more photos and keep wandering the streets till late at night but I decided to go and see the Victoria Harbor light show in the evening so started to head there after it got dark.
The last photo is one taken with the Ricoh GR and the one that doesn't fit in the series but I figured I had to post at least one photo of the skyline at night.
