Photographer's Note

The central district is one area of the Hong Kong island northern coast located in central west in Hong Kong. It is located in the opposite side which faced across the Victoria harbor from southernmost Tsim Sha Tsui(尖沙咀) of Kowloon. It is a central business district in Hong Kong, and there is headquarters of many multinational financial institutions. Achieving a duty as money centers from the beginning of the British colonial days in 1841, after the Hong Kong handover in 1997 is bearing the duty as an executive center. Although after return it is yielding Shanghai the commercial center, it has still played the large role of the foreign trade in China. Politically, it is in one country, two systems enforced after return. The freedom of association and meeting are accepted now. Since the diplomatic right of Hong Kong belongs to the People's Republic of China central government, the future situation seems to opaque. This photograph was taken towards Central District of Hong Kong island from Tsim Sha Tsui of Kowloon. It seems that the building is changing more now.
