Dusky View of Clock Tower

Hong Kong view map

It seems like only yesterday that my father brought me to the Clock Tower,
bought two tickets from an old ticket office,
and then we took a train to Shatin (countryside in the old day but a busy city nowadays).
It was more that 40 years ago but whenever I stand here, it brings back my memories.

The location of the building, next to the clock tower,
that donimates the picture was orignially a dark and old train terminus.
The first thing I saw inside the station was a big bronze bell placed
in the middle of a crowded ticketing area.

I knew the story of this place.This clock tower was my first great memory of HK in 2003.It is one of my favorite place and we can have a great view of the bay.With the design of the wall of the big exibition center it is a very nice perspectiv.

I love this photo very much. It mixed with historical, modern design and neutral altogether.
