Started off my new project weekend, to photograph the station names of every single MTR station in Hong Kong. I don’t know how long it will take to do them all, but 3 or 4 weekends may be just enough. The idea is simple, take a camera, one lens and stop at every single station and then move on to the next.
There has not been any over eager security guard asking me to stop photographing so far, and to keep things interesting, I’ve got 2 months of backlogged podcasts to keep me company while continuing the task. The only thing I learnt is that there is a limit to the time you can spend in the metro, once you pass the gates. Its about 2.5 hours. And I spent a little more than that, and the Customer Service office let me out without a penalty. Otherwise it would cost a little more than 20HKD. I believe it was 21HKD that they mentioned.
There’s no deadline to this project. It will be completed when its completed, and I will figure out then what to do with all the database of photos! Today I managed to shoot 512 NEF files!

The bokeh on that first shot of the “handle” is to die for 🙂
Bravo! Quite the projek … Time to shoot Dubai metro next, ok!
one metro line at a time… can’t be too ambitious.
Are you sure it is Chai Wan,not Shang Wan?D3S without flash?You’d also come back to shoot Shanghai Metro which means more to you,I guess.
very sure… shang wan is below ground.
Hi..I like the ‘inside HK MTR train’ pic, that’s a great picture! I wonder if you allow me to put it on my blog as illustration of one of my blog post, with link to this site. Would it be any charge? Thank You. 🙂
