The Management of Space

We’re all very space conscious in Hong Kong.

Everyone is watchful.

Are windows for looking in or looking out?

We’re mindful of where not to go.

We know where we are at all times.

Even nature has discipline.

I’m fascinated by what you could see when coming down the Mid-Levels Escalator at Central in Hong Kong.

You could see lots of small businesses, restaurants and shops.

You could also see unruly leaves and branches against grey concrete buildings.

Things happen, though they don’t always announce themselves.

Life is understated sometimes.

At other times, it is in your face.

This is how concrete lives.

The unruly beauty of nature and concrete.

We can’t help but look again and again.
