Shining Towers

I had a minor screw up with the editor this morning and wound up deleting a post.  Sorry if you received more than one email notification.

Due to the scarcity of space in Hong Kong everything is built up instead of out.  Their thriving economy is housed in glass sheathed skyscrapers while most residents live in high rise buildings.

  5. It makes it easy to get around, everything is very close together. Not like Texas where you have to drive for hours to get anywhere.

    • One does not need a car there, but S class Mercedes abound.

      • Same in Singapore, tho they tax the hell out of them to discourage car ownership. Is it the same with the taxes in Hong Kong?

        • Jill, I don’t know how Hong Kong taxes cars. In Singapore they limit the number of registrations and auction off 10 year permits. After 10 years the cars must be exported.

        • yep, it makes it very expensive to keep a car, not even thinking about parking, repairs, insurance, gas, etc. They do have a very good metro

    Great compositions, particularly eye-catching are Crystal and Tilt. Very well done. It would be interesting to see them in monochrome. 🙂
