Mostly I shoot color because that is the native mode of digital photography.  However, I found a few scenes here that looked good in monochrome.  These were shot in five different European countries.

If you have not seen my photos from Hong Kong and Macau, please don’t limit your journey to this post.  It was an exciting trip.  You can share my experiences for free (as in beer) by scrolling down the front page of my blog and checking out the galleries.

Along the streets of Macau there are small businesses located behind garage doors.  Electricity must be expensive because few had lights on.  It appeared the majority of these places were food related, either small restaurants or some kind of take away.  These micro businesses were a stark contrast to the giant gambling casinos.   Dried meat is a local specialty.  Tourists from China couldn’t get enough of it.

Part of the network of elevated pedestrian walkways on Hong Kong Island is a series of escalators that move people up the hill to what is called the mid level.  That and other scenes are featured here.  A long line in an Apple store is characteristic of the crush of people living here.

Street photography is about people and there are a lot of people here.  Often the crowds are too dense to make visual sense of anything.  Once I raised my camera, a short Indian man ran into my elbow and he said something I was happy to not understand.

I wandered up to the Houston Heights and saw the sights on 19th Street.  It looks like Main Street in a small town despite being surrounded by sprawling Houston.

That evening there were more art gallery openings than one could attend in an evening.  Most of these were true openings with new works, not just art store open houses like the ones seen on Canyon Road in Santa Fe.  Photographs in the background in “3 Blonds” are by John Runnels at Redbud Gallery.  “Cecilia” is at Archway Gallery.

From Galveston Island, this is happening right now.  Pretty girl bartenders, promotional models and thousands of roaring motorcycles across the street from the Gulf of Mexico.  Stay tuned, I have more photos to publish.

These photos are mostly of active people in Mission Beach, California.  They are bicycling, skateboarding, walking, and cooking.
