Photographer's Note

Taken on Nathan Road (Kowloon).

One way that this vigorous juxtaposition of the old and the new in Hong Kong is demonstrated in Hong Kong is the abundance of unusual bamboo scaffolding. This scaffolding encases so many of the tall skyscrapers - as new buildings rise up and old buildings are revitalized. It is awe inspiring to watch the skilled workers climb twenty or more stories high as they work on the buildings using this ancient and renewable resource.

Bamboo scaffolding is everywhere you go - a constant reminder of the expansion and energy of Hong Kong.
