North Point

I took this photo in North Point (north-eastern part of the HK island) yesterday before it got dark. North Point is one of the areas in HK where new immigrants from Mainland China like to settle in. More often than in other districts, we can hear regional dialects on the streets and small eateries featuring provincial cuisine.

lisi - this image is sooo fascinating - so much going on and I can only image the noise of various dialects conversing

Hi Lisi! That McDonald's sign looks out of place in the midst of these chinese signs. But I love the photo! :)

This is the HK I know and love! Still the old neon signs and 70s buildings.

Interesting stuff. Are there a lot of new arrivals from the mainland?

Hi all, you probably won't find a lot of tourist attractions in North Point but this is quite a safe area to browse around and have a look of local life...

thanks!

Looks like a busy city! Nice photo!

Wow! It may look common to you, but to a dweller in a smallish city, that scene looks quite remarkable!

It's a crazy quilt of color and texture -- very wonderful visual rhythms, a nice take on "common."
