Good morning, Tsim Sha Tsui (2)

Most shops in the arcades are still shuttered. But some of them are beginning to open up already. Soon the arcades will be full of people.

The street is still wet from the washing. But adventurous tourists are already out on the street. Nowadays a lot of them are from mainland China. But this family has a Middle-Eastern look about them.

This pearl-necked turtle dove has found a nice perch. From this angle, it appears you don’t need to be filthy rich to be looking down on the fancied International Financial Center 2.

The Star Ferry looks practically incandescent, bathing in the golden glory of the reflected sunlight.

The shadowy sky-scrapers in the backdrop appear to be floating in mid-air. We may not work in them, or be able to afford to live in them. But the view is at least available to all.
