kowloon hong kong

the dragon, the man...

" Art is the expression of the self.
The more complicated and restricted the method, the less the opportunity for expression of one's original sense of freedom.
Though they play an important role in the early stage, the techniques should not be too mechanical, complex or restrictive.
If we cling blindly to them, we shall eventually become bound by their limitations.
Remember, you are expressing the techniques and not doing the techniques.
It is as though when I call you, you answer me, or when I throw you something, you catch it.
It's as simple as that no fuss, no mess. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Moving, be like water. Still, be like a mirror. Respond, be like an echo. " ... Bruce Lee

Bruce Lee was a Chinese American martial artist and actor, widely regarded as the most influential martial artist of the 20th century.
His movies elevated the traditional Hong Kong martial arts films to a new level. They also sparked the first major surge of interest
in Chinese martial arts in the West. Bruce Lee became an iconic figure particularly to Chinese.
Many see Bruce Lee as a model blueprint for acquiring a strong and efficient body as well as developing a mastery of martial arts
and hand to hand combat skills. He began the process of creating his own fighting system known as Jeet Kune Do.
His evaluation of traditional martial arts doctrines is nowadays seen as the first step into the modern style of mixed martial arts.

Even his statue demands attention. I like the fact there's nothing else in the frame to distract attention away from him.

His words are really the truth. A kind of Zen philosophy. Cool shot, of course. Roberto

Excellent treatment, adds a lot to the final result.
Guest 11-Jul-2006 16:59
High key Bruce Lee gets a vote from me :)
Guest 11-Jul-2006 15:34
Likely that without him, films like "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" would have never existed. Superb high key.
Guest 11-Jul-2006 15:25
So cool. A decision was made recently to errect a statue in a war torn Bosnian city... They needed to choose a figure who would be equally accepted by Bosnian Muslims, Croats and Serbs. Bruce Lee was the man that was agreed upon. I thought it was amazing - quite an unexpected yet powerful tribute. Love the treatment on this shot. Gmv
David Grundy11-Jul-2006 15:13
