Concrete Jungle

HongKongCityscapeWith very limited land on a hilly island, the HK side is much more packed with tall buildings than the Kowloon peninsula. Shorter, older buildings such as those in the foreground are giving way to skyscrapers. And there seems to be an ongoing competition among the skyscrapers to be taller to get a bit of open view, or if lucky, a sliver of harbor view. I took this photo in SoHo, an area with interesting contrasts of old and new, east and west as you can also see in my previous post Trendily Traditional.

I have a friend from Hong Kong, he said that it is about the size of Memphis,Tennessee, USA where we live. The main difference in size is people. We have 1 million, you have 6 million. That is a large amount of people for one place, I can see how important tall buildings are! Very nice Photo, you seem to capture the city with every one you take.
