I'm reposting some of my old Hong Kong fire engine photos from 2002. This time the photos are scanned from the negative.

Previously before I bought the scanner, I've used my digital camera to take a photo of a printed 4" x 6" photo.

There is a story behind these photos. Following our brief stay in my mom's home town in Chencun, Canton, China, we took the ferry back to Hong Kong. As the bus that took us from the ferry pier to our hotel passed by a fire station not far from the hotel, I noticed that the doors of the Canton Road fire station were wide open, with lots of people inside.

As soon as we settled in the hotel, I ran back to the fire station. Rather than having an open house, it appeared that a group of seniors were visiting the fire station. Technically I shouldn't really be allowed in, but the firemen were too nice to kick me out and let me take photos of the impressive array of fire engines inside the station.
