snapshots from hong kong...x

i love how hong kong is a huge city of contrasts....the high tech skyscrapers on central contrast with the older colonial buildings, and the rundown highrises with all that washing hanging out the window, precariously balanced on washing lines high above the city streets....the money & finance on central against the rag trade of sham shui po....i love the fact that the history of the city remains, traditions such as the star ferry and the trams, that on one street you can shop in dior & prada, yet turn a corner & happen upon a fish market & traditional stalls selling paper lanterns....
