Wan Chai Development, Kodak Portra 400

Another walk from Matty’s house to TST and another shot of the development at the harbour front in Wan Chai – also known as Wan Chai Development Phase II.

Despite having taken a few pitchas of this area I’m not particularly interested in building developments in Hong Kong. We have to walk through this area if we walk from our place to get the ferry to TST so I just snap pitchas as we walk through. I find architecture in Hong Kong uninspiring at best. The rents and lack of affordable housing and the fact the government seems uninterested in constructing anything that would
be in the interest of the general public is enough to make anyone feel glum about this kind of thing.

The third pitcha is of a community art installation near the Museum of Art which was quite nice.

Chu Chu, Cafe, Konica Minolta Centuria Super 400

Chu Chu and Matty went for some coffee at Le Pain Quotidien in Wan Chai. Ok coffee in some over-sized cups and a comfy chair. We had some average carrot cake as well. Not bad overall.

Supermarket Bokeh, Fuji Industrial 400

Supermark/eh! in Wellcome.

“Wellcome” is a supermarket in Hong Kong that wants to be like Tesco. It fails at that quite miserably. It also smells funny, and by funny I mean unpleasant.

Jouer – Wan Chai – Fuji Industrial 400

Some photos from Jouer, a little coffee shop in a quiet corner of the faintly pleasant Star Street area of Wan Chai, specialising in home-made French macaroons.

A highly characterful space decked out with vintage trinkets and curiosities and a few copies of stylish magazines including Monocle (shop also in Wan Chai across the road) strewn about for good measure.

The coffee is pretty good here and the macaroons are very tasty even though you’ll need four of ’em to make a mouthful – they are absolutely tiny. A lovely way to spend an afternoon.

Supermarket Bokeh – Fuji Superia Venus 800

More silliness – the supermarket bokeh series! The 759 store in Wan Chai this time. Wonderful.

Nikon F100 / Fuji Superia Venus 800

I’m not particularly impressed by the Superia Venus 800. The extra stop isn’t worth the extra grain.
