streetSNAP: People of Lamma Island Part 2

POLI (1)
With 6000 or so people that live here, the island has attracted many Chinese, western and international people because of it’s laid back lifestyle, natural environment and cheap(in the past) living. Most of the population is concentrated in Yung Shue Wan and this is where all the candid pics below were taken. It’s a great place to be a street photographer as a quick trip down to the village with camera in hand, to buy some buns, milk or even a can of lager, may result in a great shot!
