For @passionpassport‘s #PPRushHour challenge // I had just finished work for the day and was passing through a sea of rush-hour commuters in Mong Kok, one of Hong Kong’s busiest districts. Although I walk this street and boarded these red minibuses every day, something about the controlled chaos of this particular scene made me stop and get my camera ready.
