My name is Edas Wong, living in Hong Kong. I am a day-dreamer and love imagination. Street photography is an excellent media to express my crotchets. There are many surreal scenes which happen around us. What I need are just “go outside”, “stop playing smartphone”, observe” and then “click”. It is rather simple.
