twilight zone 迷離境界

2013.1.26 | 李鄭屋古墓 lei cheng uk han tomb museum

遊歷香港的古跡,迷離虛幻,拜強烈的環境對比、現實跟歷史的感受落差。

visiting historic sites in hong kong most of the time feel surreal; thanks to the big contrast of reality and history, intensity vs simplicity.

舉例。屏山的聚星樓,建於明代。香港最古的塔,有六百年的歷史;滄海桑田的鮮活例子。一個四層樓青磚的古雅建築,原來面水靠山,如今落得夾身電氣鐵路和停車坪中間。

one strong example is the pagoda of gathering stars at the ping shan heritage trail. the only surviving pagoda in hong kong of six hundred years of history is awkward standing short between the modern electrified railway and an ugly privately owned parking lot. the location back then was the best choice of feng shui, because it was facing the water and having a hill/mountain at its back.

李鄭屋古墓如今委身小學和公共樓房中間。一千七百至一千九百年前,此南蠻之地是傍海的,如今離海岸二千公尺遠。墓的建築,放于現代世界,像愛斯基摩人的冰屋。
