This might be one of my favorite pictures that I have taken in Hong Kong. I just happened to walk by at the perfect time on a cloudy Saturday afternoon to catch this artist painting a market street. I never know what I'll see when I explore this strange city, and I love the surprises. The angle isn't perfect and I don't know anything about the painter, but this strikes me as a special Hong Kong moment.
This week I saw a man in a coffee shop reading Lance Armstrong's It's Not About the Bike. A younger man in the same shop was reading The Memory Palace by Mira Bartok and a woman was reading something in English on a 3rd generation Kindle. I spotted a man flipping through The Leisurely Hiker's Guide to Hong Kong by Pete Spurrier. This morning on the train the woman next to me was reading a little black book in Chinese that reminded me of a pocket Bible. I spotted three other Chinese readers this week and one comic book reader.
It's your turn. What are people reading in public places around your town?
