Mongkok, Hong Kong view map

At the backyard of busy commercial buildings,

Cooling tower in China and HK is very common,not so in France .I remmember in 200? the problem of health;Asia is not alone in Hawai the famous trouble with the bactery in this water circulation,the sick of legionner.Not easy to solve in France each summer the pb comes back ,the number of watercontrols grown up without 100% of safety.The mixing with the carbage is complicated to solve in the big city.

I realize it's a back alley, a place to put the garbage until it is picked up... but look at the alley, as far as the eye can see... clean, very clean, not a scap paper anywhere ! I've seen that in all of your Parallel Life Serie... HK must have the cleanest back alleys anywhere in the world !
A very beautiful image CM, the BW tones are perfect...

This is a common site at back alleys.
A striking image in B/W, CM.
