Tin Hau Temple is located just of Nathan Road, Kowloon. Nathan Road is one of the busiest roads in Hong Kong with hundreds and thousands of people walking along it – no matter what time of day/ night. Typically in Hong Kong, within all the hustle and bustle you can still find small places of peace and worship. Chinese temples are incredibly colourful with dominating red and yellows.

Photographer: Benjamin Lee (Hong Kong) Registered
Born in Tokyo, raised in Hong Kong and with the annual trip back to the UK in the summer Benjamin Lee was instilled with a desire to travel from an early age. Early adventures included locations both East and West and when, at 21 he received a DSLR he got cracking on recording his own exploits.
He has always considered himself as a visual learner with a good memory for places and events and he thoroughly enjoy traveling and experiencing new locations. Whenever he look through the lens he is always looking to capture the scene as he experiences it.
He is currently living in Hong Kong however he spends a fair amount of time working in different locations around Asia and Europe. I would classify himself as an observant photographer (if there’s such a category) because he is always trying to capture what he sees around him, whether it’s landscapes, urban landscapes or candid street shots.
