Architecture in Hong Kong

City of plenty, a country in itself. Hong Kong has one of the highest inhabitants per squre kilometre. Housing is a major problem the Hong Kong govenment tackles its own way. Huge housing estates invade the little peninsula and make for spectacular images.  Though living conditions are fairly basic and appartement sizes are small, surprisingly bright exterior colors give a feel of welcome and cosiness. Photographing public mansion like this can be a daunting task, as most are tall and light differences between the base and upper floors vary a lot. In order to get the perspective right, finding a vantage point is essential but far from easy.The image on the left displays the interiour of one of Ho Man Tin housing estates and leads towards more architectural images of Hong Kong.
