Collision off Lamma

Last night, two ferries collided off Lamma Island, Hong Kong. One of the boats, carrying over 100 people on the way to watch the National Day fireworks display, sank immediately with its passengers aboard.

36 have been confirmed dead, and rescue operations are still under way.

Update on 4-Oct: The death toll has risen to 38, and flags flew at half mast starting today to mark the start of a 3-day mourning.

Update on 6-Oct: A 10-year old girl passed away yesterday, the rest of the hospitalized are said to be in stable conditions.

Occupy Central and… What’s Next…?

Yesterday night, the Occupy Central community organized a music festival to greet the eviction order handed to them by the High Court. Lots of youngsters vented their emotions via loud music.

Youngsters enjoy in the music festival.

At 10-month, it may be one of the longest continuously running Occupy movements in the world. Many others had been put to stop, gone into hibernation from time to time, or become protests that are being held at regular intervals instead.

Tsim Sha Tsui

Some random handheld shots in Tsim Sha Tsui and Hung Hom.

Though the newer RAW engines do wonders in noise reduction for high ISO shots, perhaps I should still bring a tripod next time.

Hong Kong Flower Show 2012

Went to the Hong Kong Flower Show 2012 yesterday.

Although the weather was not very nice and it’s mostly overcast, it didn’t stop people from coming in flocks and taking photographs.

Scavengers

They turn the needy from the pathway,
and the poor of the land hide themselves together.
Like wild donkeys in the desert
they go out to their labor,
seeking diligently for food;
the wasteland provides food for them
and for their children.
– Job 24:4-5
