Close quarters….

Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world.

This is a 20-second exposure looking up from the courtyard of an older, high density U-shaped housing estate in the Quarry Bay district.

The movement of the clouds in the blue twilight sky provides a great background to the colorful and geometric apartments. One could see clothes hanging in the apartment balconies.

It could almost be mistaken for a housing block of a futuristic space colony, floating thousands of miles above the Earth.

Close quarters are a fact of life for the vast majority of human beings….and it will most likely remain so far, far into the future.
