Photographer's Note

January, 2006, Central, Hong Kong Island, Hong Kong SAR

A tram bound for Kennedy Town rushes through downtown Hong Kong. The island has successfully managed to blend these old relics of the British Imperial legacy with the strive for modernity-- the neon lights glowing skyscrapers not contrasting oddly against these quaint double-decker trams. Riding near the front window on one of these is the way to experience Hong Kong by night-- provided you avoid peak hour (if that is even humanly possible).

Admittedly this one is a bit psychadelic in its presentation; I was experimenting with slow-sync flash on my film camera by leaning out the side of my tram and snapping oncoming ones with a burst of TTL flash.
