Title: Please Mind The Gap
Comment from the Winner:
Please Mind The Gap was a personal project that I stumbled upon when I nearly lost my mobile phone through the MRT train gaps, during a time when I struggled to find time to photograph the streets; and this project allowed me to pursue my hobby during my daily commute. While I had self-published a photography book of this project with photographs from Singapore, I continued to photograph and intend to do a Hong Kong edition. All because I still enjoyed the hustle and bustle, the texture I could get from photographing in a similar yet vastly different city like Hong Kong.

This particular shot was captured during my last visit in April. I was rather intrigued by the awkwardness of the subject as he tried to hurry into the train, and yet stood uneasily at the same time to avoid the alighting passengers. And it was the pause that gave me time to compose and press the shutter.

My Experience with the RX1
To be honest, I was very much afraid and skeptical when I moved to the first-ever mirrorless full frame camera like Sony RX1 five years ago, as it was a totally new concept for someone who was too used to SLR cameras. But I made the immediate switch anyway, when it was first released and I never looked back. I enjoyed using the Sony RX1 mainly for its inconspicuous compact size for shooting on the streets, the fine built of the Carl Zeiss 35mm f2 lens (even though it’s a fixed lens), and definitely its uncompromising image quality. I personally didn’t expect to stick to one camera for so long.
