唐樓賜予的美感與動感 the beauty of tenement houses

2017.03.01 | 元州街 273 un chau street 很喜歡這種較剪式唐樓樓梯的設計,為街道的上空,不但勾勒出硬朗的幾何畫面,更投入一種動感。 這裡還一連三樘的樓梯,彷彿在這舊區的大氣放下一座手風琴,隱約感受到老舊時光的音符。 可惜的是樓宇老舊,也缺少保養,不知多久這裡會淪入發展的時代巨輪下。 i always find this kind of staircases really awesome looking. it is scissor-like, coming in par, putting outside the tenement houses or tong lau on one side. not sure if residents finding them comfortable to use but they certainty strike a great visual effect to […]

2018.02.25 | 旺角染布房街 yim po fong street 從旺角東火車站走落亞皆老街,抬頭張望,視線落在染布房街,因為兩個大型的霓虹招牌。 前面『華夏別墅』屬「純粹租房」式的賓館。斗大楷書只為一個訊息,告訴你這裡有房出租。 後面『泉章居』則花巧多。圖像有皇冠包圍「金牌鹽焗雞」,標示其招牌菜;文字強調「正宗客菜」;主角是其金漆名號。搜尋資料,才得知這是「當代草聖」于右任大師的墨寶。後知後覺,連番審視觀賞那揮就灑脫的字體,對此七十多年歷史的飲食行尊,多一番感受。 插寫于大師的資歷,他是清舉人,同盟會成員,民國政府的開國元老,亦是中國書法名家。 yesterday afternoon i took a different route after exiting the mong kok east train station and there we have some great street scenery discovery. walking on argyle street, looking around. two neon billboards drew my eyes to the skyline along yim po fong street.
