A Sea of Umbrellas

I have spent the last few days getting acquainted with Hong Kong and all her temperatures! Its the monsoon season at present and today was an excellent example of why it is important to have a good umbrella - the first one we had broke under the weight of this mornings down pour so now Jay and i have one each which works well but you have to be careful not to get poked in the eye by passing umbrellas on crowded foot paths.

I have been working on a project for the past month creating illustrated artwork for a cafe called Holly Brown here in Hong Kong and now we are here to finish off the project with photography. This week I will photograph coffee, cup cakes and gelato which will be a lot of fun. The shop is almost finished being constructed and we have meet some awesome people from around the world who have all been brought in on the project. Im looking forward to working with them all. Time now to get some sleep for the big week ahead...
