Critically acclaimed Chinese photographer Fan Ho spent the 1950s and 60s taking gritty and darkly beautiful photos of street life in Hong Kong. His photographs, to be published in his new book “Fan Ho:A Hong Kong Memoir,” reach back through time and space to connect us to the everyday sights of this bustling metropolis in a way that many of us have never seen before.

To the folks mentioning they're actors: Sure. And? Does that make them any less random? Or strangers? Any given cast is usually a group of random strangers. None of these reactions seemed calculated to me. So either they're all exceptionally good actors, or they were truly in the moment. How is either one bad?

Oh great. The actors vs. non-actors kerfluffle was bad enough when I heard about it: now I've got Method vs. non-Method kissing debates in my head.

A rare selfie, at the more rare venue of 21.

Well, I can see why you'd say so, but I enjoyed myself a fair bit.  I keep looking much grumpier than I feel.  A shame, but if Orwell is to be believed, this is the year my face is what I deserve.

For when you're cutting magnetic paper, obviously.

Hm. More oriented towards the common man, but feels like a variation on Walter Tevis' novel "The Steps of the Sun."

"A gay player wouldn't be welcome in an NFL locker room."  Well, the NFL has about 1700 players.  So it's statistically likely they already have about 170 gay players, who are presumably all in the closet. And since football is the most homoerotic professional sport in America, it's probably more than that.  Oops.

And oh, yeah, Mr. Hansen: Well done.

The Santa Maria della Salute church in Venice (http://ow.ly/sE5gz).

it’s not all gondolas and (apparently) smelly canals.

This Roman Catholic church, known as the ‘Salute’, is located on the Grand Canal in Venice. The famous city is sited on a group of 118 small islands, all connected via a complex system of bridges and canals.

A house in Kirkland. Lit by sunset, dark with a storm.
