photoblog image HK Day4: Causeway Bay

HK Day4: Causeway Bay

This is in the Causeway Bay of Hong Kong, off Pennington Street. The tram line below has stops near the staris. The circular elevated pedestrian bridge was unique to my eyes. It is not so easy to make out in this wide angled view, but there were a lot of non-HK locals laying down plastic sheets and newspapers and sitting down, chatting with each other and partaking packed food. It was a Sunday, so I imagine they were making a picnic, right in the center of the shopping malls, departmental stores and retail outlets (Causeway Bay apparently has a ‘hip’ factor that goes through the roof).

There is a somewhat similar elevated pedestrian bridge near Victory Monument in Bangkok, Ayush, but it features the skytrain rather than trams.
Ayush Basu: Bangkok and all of Thailand are places that I have not had a pleasure of making myself familiar with, Ray.
Striking design...
Ayush Basu: It is quite unmissable if you are around here, Larry.
Oh I really like this!!
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elizabeth. Not sure if the two of you may ever find yourselves in this part of the world.

Every inch of the place is utilised isn't it Ayush
Ayush Basu: This is certainly a hot spot so there is quite a commercial aspect to space usage here, Chris.

Rom this angle it looks quite a busy and confusing place Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I have no clue I climbed which and got down which flight of stairs, Chad.
Concrete heaven, where would they be withoutit
Ayush Basu: Yes, I imagine so, Martin.
I guess there isn't an enormous amount of countryside area to go to in HK.
Ayush Basu: Well there is some, but not in this part of town, Brian.
This does look very strange to my eyes Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I think I can partially relate to the going-ons around here, Bill - it is not so unlike Singapore.
Nice. I like the way that pole divides the image.
Ayush Basu: Yes, I did not think about that, Michael.

This is a wonderful picture and thanks for the write-up, I do see some people sitting around.. It is a way of life is my guess. What a place to be, Ayush
Ayush Basu: I think it is an inexpensive way to meet up and chit chat, Astrid.
Location. Location. Location. We all know how important it is, Ayush. smile
Ayush Basu: Precisely, Ginnie!

This place looks like a massive concrete jungle, Ayush
Ayush Basu: At this spot, it does, Lisl.

It sounds fascinating place to see for yourself. It would not be my choice for a picnic location but perhaps people do just because other people do it?
Ayush Basu: I think the driving factor is that it does not cost anything and the authorities do not mind the congregation of people, Alan.
Wouah.....impressionnant !!!
Bonne journée
Ayush Basu: Merci, Claudine. Enjoy the weekend.

Concrete all over HK, or so it seems. Those people with the plastic sheets and newspapers - we have such people in our country, but they are of the homeless types.
Ayush Basu: These are not homeless, Louis - they just meet up with other people and dispense with the affair of attending to large groups of visitors at cramped, limited home spaces. Made sense to me really!

The curvy lines in the middle ground contrast with the square windows in the background.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for your take on that, CherryPie.
