KENNEDY TOWN, HONG KONG: I'm fascinated by the small red and white pilot boats that I see pretty much anywhere I'm by the water in Hong Kong.
I don't know how many there are, but I imagine a large port like Hong Kong needs a lot. I've seen number '1' once on a rainy evening just off TST. Here's number 22 on a blustery afternoon approaching Kennedy Town.
I'll soon be setting up the Hong Kong Pilot Boat Spotting Club (HKPBSC), an exclusive club with a membership of 1. Anything requiring a six letter acronym is always going to be pretty niche!
I've never had much luck with marine scenes on B&W film. As I recall the OM-2 was metering pretty wildly, so I went with an arbitrary 125th/f4 and hoped for the best, which seems to have worked.
Next time - colourful boats in colour!
