Photography: Snapshots in the rain

Every time I think the sunshine is back, it’s a lie – it is actually raining again! This year really has been bad when it came to the amount of rain that fell.

Looking at the Hong Kong Observatory’s fantastic and in-depth website, you can see that we had 14 days of thunderstorms in May this year. The highest in any month, since 1947, is 15 days. So we are not far off… and seeing how June started, this could be another thunderstorm-rich month. If you are wondering what to do on a rainy day, check out my blog posts about spending a rainy day on Hong Kong Island and/or Kowloon.

Anyway, that’s not an excuse not to take my camera out and go shooting… so one evening I just went over to Kowloon to take some pictures. Here are some snapshots (in no particular order and not with any description apart from ‘rainy Friday evening) from walking around Mong Kok and Tsim Sha Tshui.

  1. Wow, what a month May was.

    Nice pictures, though it’s hard to see the falling raindrops in photography I think these pictures work well.

  2. I love the second one! All photos are fun though… so interesting to see the different expressions of people in each. Every time we are in winter, I forget how miserable the summer and rainy weather can get. And it’s not even typhoon season yet :-(
