HK Day1: lofty

This should give an impression on the buildings, with respect to streets and pedestrians.

All those red vehicles below are taxis. I will have some info on them in my next post.

I like this shot, Ayush. I took several like this the last time I was in Hong Kong as they do seem to give an impression of the character of HK.
Ayush Basu: The rooftops resonated with me, Ray - a different time and a different place but the ones seen above are not so different from the one I used to visit as a boy.

Que c'est haut ! Il y a beaucoup de taxis.
Ayush Basu: Yes, availability of taxis did not appear to be a problem and the public transport is good too, Martine
Niiice! I love the rooftop patios!
Ayush Basu: I liked them too; a personal space for the residents among the skyscrapers, Elizabeth

This view makes the thought of so many humans crammed into such a space almost cruel.
Ayush Basu: I would counter that the vertical expansion has spared lateral expansion at the cost of greenery on this tiny island, Chad.

This definitely taxi-land Ayush, and air conditioning land too..
Ayush Basu: Yes, availability of taxis did not appear to be a problem and the public transport is good too, Chris. We are addicted to air conditioning comforts.
One glance at this makes me sense my Vertigo problem, I would hate to live right up there.
Ayush Basu: I can look down into the distance, not directly down below, Brian. I do not believe I can live long term at that elevation.
What an interesting photo, Ayush. I like the rooftop gardens.
Ayush Basu: I like them too, Frank, although I do not have anything more than a potted plant.
Cracking picture Aysuh. I could not live somewhere this crowded!
Ayush Basu: There are tremendous economic opportunities in this metropolitan city, Bill, and being a free state, many are attracted here.
So nice. I like the roof top gardens.
Ayush Basu: So do I Michael, thank you.

J'aime bien les jardins sur le toit.
Ayush Basu: I like them too, Martine.

Oh my word! I love how you have shown this. What a clutter! The air con units in the apartments are quite a feature.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Alan. These blocks are relatively shorter so I assume they came up some time in the 90s. We are horribly reliant on air conditioning.
Impressionnant !!!
belle prise de vue
Ayush Basu: Merci, thank you for the kind comment, Claudine.

Some have washing and some have plants on their rooftops. Quite a view.
Ayush Basu: It is quite an Asian thing to dry laundry in the abundant sunshine, Louis.

wow!! i would love to live in an old loft apt with a ceiling patio!!
Ayush Basu: Think you and I have something in common, in addition to photography, Elaine.
you don't suffer from vertigo for sure Ayush... great shot of the street from up there....petersmile
Ayush Basu: I was only a short term resident there, Peter. I hope the locals there do not suffer!
I am fascinated by the rooftops... lots of interesting detail...
Ayush Basu: Yes, isn't it? I was a bit surprised by the several dish type antennae, Larry
That's certainly what the word vertiginous was coined for!
Ayush Basu: Fortunately I was not affected, Tom.
