Signboards

Public Square Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Hong Kong
Hong Kong, Kowloon

if your’e a Global Soul thrown this way and that by the global marketplace – you dwell in a kind of floating International Settlement where you never have to worry that 98 percent of the people around you can’t understand a word you say. The word for foreigner in Hong Kong, gwei-lo, famously means ‘ghost.’
Pico Iyer, The Global Soul

  1. Most interesting, Michael. Maybe we’re all ghosts in this world of ours?! In the meantime, keep taking these street scenes that tell us so much.

  2. Street scenes are so special at night. I like the signs and love the wet streets.
    Great shot.
    I bet if I will travel to Hong Kong I might see ghosts….
