No chandeliers

I took this photo while taking a walk in my friend's neighborhoold. This is Wah Fu Estate, a government-built public housing estate in the Southern district. These households are not likely to be decorated with chandeliers but I think collectively, their lights form a kind of chandelier-like glamor against the clear sky of the evening. You can also see Wah Fu Estate in this previous post.
Link: don't miss this photo story by BBC on Wah Fu with very good photos (thanks Anonymous!)

A rough uncut diamond. It's inhibitants: sparks of a jewel, full of potential...ready to burst out when given a chance. I like the sparkles against the black sky.

Avec cette lumiére cela donne l'impression d'être une maquette

Great photo Lisi,
I've always loved night photos and for some reason pictures of high-rise apartments a well. This is one of my favorites.

Is this the same housing project that BBC did a story on a while back (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/shared/spl/hi/picture_gallery/06/asia_pac_high_density_living_in_hong_kong/html/1.stm) ?

w, how poetic and true, the estate was built in the 60s/70s and a lot of the successful people in HK are known to have lived there; some consider the estate a miniature of HK's progress in the past decades.

Olivier, oui, c'est vrai :-)
