My Kind of Pub

When I go to a new city, I love to take my camera and just go for a walk...I guess a "Photowalk" is today's catch phrase...so, that is what I did when I went to Hong Kong. I just took the subway to "Central", and got out and started walking. I ran into that famous escalator that is supposed to be the longest in the world....it goes uphill into some old parts of town. I got off about half-way, and started walking down through the narrow streets...there were markets, pubs, street sellers, restaurants, shops, and old buildings...it was just dripping with character...it was hard to keep my camera down...I wanted to take a photo on every corner.

Finally, I ran into this little pub in Soho...they had some very tasty beer that we can't get in Jakarta, so I stopped for a nice cold glass and sat just behind the lady in red...between sips, I got up to take this photo...the people standing around asked me if they should get out of the way...I told them, "of course not, just stay where you are and look natural"...and they did. I love little places like this...it is just my style!!
