HK Dichotomies

I’m continuously fascinated by the dichotomies of Hong Kong: old, run-down buildings next to sleek and modern skyscrapers, a colorful 16-person public transportation bus next to a Porsche at a red light, traditional Chinese herb and tea shops next to a Starbucks, the vertical city skyline backed by beautiful mountains and surrounded by tropical waters…I could go on and on. Here is a photo of a dichotomy, which really caught my eye: a posh coffee shop specializing in lattes of which I have never even heard, seated directly next to what appears to be a no-frills, traditional “fix-it-all” business in the Wan Chai district.
