Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 2018 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

Hong Kong towerIt’s been a while since I’ve encountered a photoblog that stopped me in my tracks. The images of Hong Kong appearing at overshadowed have me totally mesmerized. The city, bathed in artificial light on a foggy night, looks like a cleaner, saner version of Blade Runner’s “Los Angeles 2019.” And the subway shots! Don’t even get me started about the subway shots!

the lucky duck had this to say (03/02/2005 16:31:06):
Yo, tourist! Stop calling it the subway! It's the MTR.
When you click on the image on the right, you will see a building with circular windows. When I was growing up in Hong Kong (1975-1985), that was the city's tallest building. It's a lil' dwarf now.

Your thoughts?
