OK, what went wrong?
Just the day before the e-session of ming and stanley, the weather forecast was very bad and I thought the session was going to be postponed … When I called stanley, “go ahead,” he said !!! And finally, most of the shooting was done in rain. In the beginning, my assistant Siu B, held an umbrella for me. But it just slowed down my style of shooting, so finally we just went on and shoot under the rain.
So what went wrong next? I didn’t actually meet ming and stanley until about two weeks before the shooting. When I first met them, my impression was they ‘re quiet and didn’t talk too much, but I was wrong again !!!! They ‘re such such a crazy couple that they ‘re ready for anything in front of my camera !!

I am a two cameras – photographer — usually carry one 5D & one 1D and use them at the same time. You guess which one survived from the rainy condition? Out of our expectation, the 1D was out of order in the middle of the day, water drops got into the viewfinder and I couldn’t use it any more. (Isn’t 1D a weatherproof camera?????) Had to sent to Canon for service later … … This was taken at the Shek O seaside.
the actual photo
simple but I love the feel of it
rain, rain, rain — but it didn’t stop us !!!!!
