Density in Hong Kong

Going from Beijing to Hong Kong is a lot traveling into the future. This is a city like I’ve never seen. People are stacked on top of each other to heights I never thought possible. Every window in one of these high-rise buildings is a different life, a different family, a whole set of different thoughts and dreams… It’s amazing to see and scary at the same time.

    Hi Jim, This picture could certainly tell so many stories. Though from time to time living in the city has wandered into my mind a few times, being a country girl, this kind of city liveing is a bit scary to me. As I am sure country living would be overwhelming to them too. Where do the children play ? How many families live in these massive buildings ? So many questions so little space .

  2. PSA:

    Is it me or is there a ghost like Micheal Jordan rising up from the pavement to do a thunderous 2-handed jam!

    I see what you mean, PSA (by the way, are you too “top-secret” to even give your name anymore?) You must have been really good at those picture puzzles where you see a blob of ink and have to convey to the doctor what it means. I can’t think of the name.
    This city is scary to me, too. It would be interesting to find how it affects a person to go from the country to this living environment. It’s unfathomable to me.

    Rorschach inkblot test

    Well I believe that I failed the inkblot test.
    What I do see here is how millions of people live through out the world.
    Looks to me like the projects in south Boston.
