WOAW Store Presents: Urban Exploration through the lens of @timmy727.
Timmy is an interior designer by day, and spent an afternoon showing us some of his favourite hidden urban landscapes of Hong Kong.
"With my Herschel bag I traveled all the way to Kwun Tong which is known to be an industrial area of Hong Kong. In one of industrial buildings, there is this cafe serving beautifully presented dishes using local produce. The space has a rustic and industrial interior, where all the tables and chairs are hand-crafted in house."
"Standing at the bottom of a huge spiral car park. Looking upwards searching for the only source of light shining through. This is how I experience Hong Kong."
"This 'look-up' architecture is located in Sheung Wan and widely called among Instagrammers as the 'butterfly look-up' spot, because it resembles a butterfly spreading wings. Looking up at the tall sky scrappers in Hong Kong and you will be surprised by how many unexpected patterns that you can find."
"The Hong Kong airport before it was relocated to the Chek Lap Kok International Airport, was once at Kai Tak whereby the proximity of the airplanes and the residential buildings was minimal during take-off and landing. However, this can no longer be experienced and the closest you can get to that is at the Airplane Repair Area."
"I have always had an affection towards building that spiral upwards. I would extend my hand towards the light and spread out my fingers. It is my way of saying 'Hi' to you."
