Photographer's Note

Taken on Nathan Road in Tsim Sha Tsui (TST) situated at the very tip of the Kowloon Peninsula, on my first night there.

Nathan Road is one of the busiest commercial roads in Hong Kong. The lower end of the road is known as the Golden Mile because of the storefront neon signs but especially because it reflects both the price of property in this high-rent area and the retailers' success. The street was named after Sir Matthew Nathan, governor of Hong Kong from 1904 to 1907. As Kowloon was sparsely populated at the time and such a wide road thought unnecessary, it was called "Nathan's Folly".
