Pentax 6×7 (Portra 400)

I’ve been photographing a lot of jewelry and small product requiring a macro lens.  I think I may also need a new eyeglass prescription or a really big monitor.

The first thing that struck me when I exited the plane was how much Cantonese I still understood.  The conversations around me weren’t as foreign as I had imagined and I found myself naturally responding in Chinese.  And that’s kind of how the rest of my trip to Hong Kong went, a slow naturalization process where I soon felt as comfortable wandering there as I did at home.  My family still drove me nuts.

I had the wonderful pleasure of photographing Tomoyasu Hotei’s show at the Highline Ballroom.  Guy is awesome and picked an awesome line up of US musicians to back him up.
