Photographer's Note

Double-decker trams have run along the fixed track in Hong Kong Island since 1904. The track is 16 km in length, from Kennedy Town in the west, through Sheung Wan (Central), Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, North Point, Quarry Bay and end in Shau Kei Wan in the east, with a branch line to Happy Valley. This is one of the best ways to observe and absorb the local life-style with the tram slowly rattling along the track. The flat rate fare for any distance, pay on exit; entrance is at the rear, and the upper deck definitely offering a better view.

Selective desaturation, colour contrast adjustment and an unsharp mask applied.

Comments and observations always invited.
