Sheung Wan, Hong Kong, May 2013
Very appropriate that June is gay pride month! The green and blue characters underneath the colorful face on the left read: “No need to evade. Live life the way I like.”
The four characters in red to the right read: “To purchase electricity” followed by the phone number.
This side street is in a gentrifying area, and a lot of the the buildings are boarded up. I love the tree roots growing down the side of the door – that’s very Hong Kong, gnarled tree roots growing down the side of a street to the next one underneath (Hong Kong Island is very mountainous, a lot of streets slant sideways).
