銅鑼灣怡和街天橋 the footbridge of causeway bay

2015.10.3 | 怡和街 yee wo street, causeway bay

經過這路段,抬頭一看行人天橋、「塗鴉」、招牌河廣告,三樣東西各自色彩鮮明,但在此聚頭又有種調和感,所以不禁拍下照片。

先說天橋。必要說說這天橋。實在覺得這行人天橋的顏色、設計、內裡的裝置都很突兀。不時經過這兒,這麼多年來,每次遇見,心裡馬上飛出兩個字「醜樣」。不過,不竟橋已經在此站立不少年,每次遊行均因瓶頸原理停留其下好一陣子,不愛還需愛。

第二項,很簡單,就是外星侵略者的作品。

招牌河,是香港仔南記粉麵一種麵食,對這家連鎖食店蠻有好感的。何況那廣告的圖片影像鮮明俐落。

是的,本來不相干的街頭家具,在此浮聚一塊成為我的風景。

every time i pass by this footbridge, the remark “ugly” never fail to pop up in my head. even after all these years. i found the space of this piece of sky being robbed by this big chunk of circle; the business of the bridge design is choking; the colours suggested a moldy feeling and i can almost smell it. but i have to admit there is a sense of connection as well. that’s because every time when i attended a demonstration/march starting from victoria park, this is a must bottleneck spot. so many times and we spent underneath it, minutes and even hour.

i took this picture, the highlight has to be this ‘landmark’. however if i did not see another two things this photo probably won’t be born. after all this footbridge is really ugly! for one, of course, is the space invader artwork.

then i also have to bring up the noodle shot/ad. somehow the bridge, the graffiti and the noodle shop ad all have their distinctive colours and looks, and yet i found them quite complementing each other.

thus, allow me to introduce this odd yet blending combination of street furniture, at the very own causeway bay.
