Entering a street full of auto mechanic sells.

Fish store signs and old fans up the ceiling.

Street signs guidance. I still get lost because the streets are crowded and curvy to follow.

This man is nailing his steel art work along with Hong Kong’s infamous beeps of the traffic light. He did looked at me then went right back to his work.

Wow, as you can see, buildings really age with years. Tenants hang their clothes, bras, pants, undies to air dry.

Shoppers are bustling for fruits and veggies. I notice that people carry their own tote bags. It make sense because according to HK law, buyers pay HKD $.50 to $1.00 for plastic bags.

Another side of the corner with old store signs. I like how the ground casted its shadow from the beaming sunlight from sunset.

Looking through street poles so I can focus the center of urban life-style in household chore. Air dry those clothes!

Orchid blooming…just like hundreds of orchids from colorful stores along the streets of Flower Market Road

A line of moto-bicyle, I think that’s what they are called.

I stepped side to take a shot of these two workers freshening their flower stock.

Gold Fish Market! Yes, many of these plastic bags are filled with at least 2 fishes or a group of fishes. Ranging from a school of fishes to a single big fish in a bag.

Wayne Lai advertising for a beer brand. It’s cool to see him on advertisement that I wouldn’t be able to see in nyc.
