長沙灣荔枝角道是條木棉道 a tree cotton path along lai chi kok road (cheung sha wan)

最近經常走去深水埗長沙灣一帶,對長沙灣屠房(已停用)、蔬菜統營處周遭馬路兩旁的闊落尤其喜愛,特別知道這附近不久將來又會賣地發展面貌將大變遷後,更珍惜每次走在這路段的光景。 上星期走逛這區時,因為近日紅棉時節,對此樹種特別敏感,喜發現這裡路上很多木棉。 這裡是老區,所以不少木棉都非常壯大。城市中的大樹,正正是社區的年輪和時計。但願更多城市人對樹木也對其他與我們共享生景的物種珍重。 been exploring sham shui po and cheung sha wan recently. love the wide and spacious as well as calm along lai chi kok road. cheung sha wan abattoir that left vacant since 1999 is my favorite spot. it is a govt facility built in the 1960s but stop functioning in 1999. to...

柏架山行記錄 2017 a walk at mt parker, journal

一月中這星期天,天陰微雨,決定起行走進郊外。原因是近年香港人都愛鑽進郊外,好天氣的週末,山中的人多比美購物區,所以有點刻意避開人潮。天氣不佳但未至於差的日子,應該是寧靜郊外行的好時機。 但仍然是不折扣的城市人,選擇還是很城市的路線。 countryside has become the new hot spot for hongkongers in recent years. people rush to country parks and rural areas over weekends and public holidays. it is more so when weather is good. i started avoiding crowd on blue sky days. last sunday, the sky was grey. i told myself it could be...

冬與春之間 winter meets spring 2016

踏入2016年,聳動多事,無論是社會或天氣。 三月的第三星期,整個星期天色晦暗,似暖還寒。過了驚蟄;早上起來,日光六時多已展現,冬天的晚鐘已經褪卻。 也許這就是春的曖昧,欲拒還迎。 這畫面是另一說明,冬候鳥絲光椋鳥遇到紅棉春開,一棵樹,冬與春在交流。 many grey days lately, seems to reflect how this city is like. i cannot complain, spring here is supposed to be like this, overcast or foggy, air is saturated with moisture and shades. but while i thought winter was away, as daylight starts to crack as early as 6ish in the...
