Living on Lamma has been an experience. You get the best of both worlds, a traditional, quiet and relatively friendly community, and 25 minutes by boat you are in one of the busiest cities in the world. Lamma has change a lot in the 8 years that my wife and I have been here. Like the rest of HK, Rents have gone up, new houses are built, shops have come and gone, and a tourist explosion pushes the islands services to the max, but something, that makes Lamma very unique is the diverse local and international characters that live here. Love Lamma as much as i do? Good! Over the next few weeks I’ll be showing my collection of candid shots of the local community.
Omg ! I love your photos . It’s been years since I moved out from Lamma Island and it’s nice to look at the photos you took and all my childhood memories came back along with them.
So glad to hear you like the pics! Lamma is such a special place. Check out next weeks blog for part 2 and if you have time please like my Facebook page!
I already did and I love the photos you took and posted on your Facebook page ! Thank you for all the beautifully taken photos 🙂
Lovely images 😉
Great photos! I particularly like the one of the man pushing the cart! Lamma is such a peaceful retreat from the rest of HK 🙂
Thanks for the comment! On the weekends it can be a bit of a nightmare, especially on the main drag but there are a few secluded trails, beaches and areas that rarely get visited- locals only!
That old man is still farming; everyday I see him working on his land, I think a lot can be said about physical work and living longer…
Your photos are totally amazing Sean! Me? 27 years here on Lamma never with a camera at the right moment, yet you’ve captured some of the best characters…
