shun lee public estate, hongkong - nowaday, it's not easy to get into any public estate's houses(buildings) because main gates have been installed for security reason. in fact, most of internal views of each building are quite interesting. it truly reflects hongkong's culture, history and living. however, there's not open for public access.

This shot is dedicated to former Governor Sir Murray Maclehose who was mapped out and rolled out the policy of public estate in hong kong. He really did a lot of great contribution to Hong Kong while he was the Governor of Hong Kong.

    Photos like this one simply proves that a photograph is not static in regard to perception. The eyes that are looking at a photograph are not still. Our eyes are constantly moving—saccadic eye movements.

    Coconutto exactly. actually, there's hardly to find a space for laundry in their home so they have to make using of some public space for the purpose.

    Anshuman Johri thank you for dropping by!

    Shutterhack thank you for your attention and comments! each floor has similar block settings: door, windows and gate. but they also personalizes their block differently. that's the interesting point, really the beauty of imperfection.

    abceric no. just some of my friend's parents are living there so i got a chance to visit there. anyhow, thanks for passing by!

    ALL thanks for all comments and favorites! really unexpect so many comments and favorites for this shot. actually, it was taken for two months ago. from the beginning, i hesitated to post it or not. because the image is not really sharp as my expected so i planned to bring a tripod to make it again. but finally, i think why not post some for archiving purpose before new photo will been taken. anyhow, thanks for all your encouragement! =)
