Click, snap and be merry

In the name of Christmas cheer (and commercialism), public spaces like shopping malls and MTR stations have brought out the decorative heavy artillery.

The festive installations seem to have a magnetic effect.
People appear convinced that standing in front of them enhances their photogenicity. (Actually, maybe it does. Who wouldn't win an attractiveness contest against Goofy?)


Then again, why not... taking a photo is a way to create a fantasy world. Only I’d rather that Times Square or MTR Corp didn’t have a say in mine.

  2. Christmas is crazy in HK - but mostly very commercial.
