It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a new Gallery page here. It’s also been a long time since I’ve shot an event like this one. Friday Night Rocks featured 8 local HK indie bands and 1 Korean band – all outdoors at the New Central Harbourfront, as part of the HK Fanzone activities for this years Hong Kong Rugby 7′s.
