Word Play: Queens Rd Central Hong Kong – in full flight. Homogeneous mirror - glass monolithic monster phallic buildings. The bold hard exchange of commodities. More. High energy and frenzied. Pervading. Exciting but overwhelming. Brand victims walking. Want. Significant and insignificant. Sharks feeding. What’s next?

Hong Kong’s subway is state of the art – no question. Advertising shouts from its walls, see me, buy me, eat me!
There was something about this image (below) I scanned as I scurried by – with battalions of Hong Kong people – that left me feeling a little despondent.
I couldn’t quite define my disquiet. Was it because the composition (body language) of the young duck suggested to me, ‘feed me’ or even perhaps ‘protect me’?

Eclectic and random vignettes (all images made on the Fujifilm X-Pro-1) of ‘living Buddhism’ on the streets and in the temples of Bangkok made over the last several days. All images are concerned and connected with the the central theme of ‘Buddhism’ and it’s ubiquity and universality in contemporary Thai life.

My sentiments exactly. The cape crusader saves photography from mediocrity and probable extinction – once again! Thank you Batman. What was the Boy Wonder thinking? Holy Gotham City!
