YOUR SHOT HAITONG YU WHO Yu, a camera engineer living in Shenzhen, China WHERE The Choi Hung public housing complex in Hong Kong’s Kowloon district. Its full Chinese name translates to Rainbow Village. WHAT Using a Nikon D610 camera with a 20mm F1.8 lens While on vacation in Hong Kong, Yu visited the Choi Hung housing complex. The cluster of multicolored buildings is a popular photographic destination, appearing frequently on Instagram. Yu arrived at noon, hoping the midday sun would minimize shad- ows on the facades. Near one building, he noticed laundry hung out to dry (next to a sign that said no laundry!). The drying clothes added a new dimension—and later, when he looked at this shot, he liked picturing the shirts and pants as emoji.
