Photographer's Note

This was taken while walking the financial district of Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of the world's most important financial centres. The density of skyscrapers (apartment blocks and commercial buildings) are bewildering. About seven million people live on 426 sq. miles and is one of the most densely populated areas in the world. This Special Administrative Region is part of the Peoples's Republic of China (since 1997).

Despite the huge number of people walking the streets it is very orderly crossing the road at traffic lights or on elevated (and often air-conditioned) walkways. I remark on this because I am in Hanoi now where crossing the street cannot in anyway be described as orderly or safe!
