30 Years Ago

Kowloon 1980's Click to Enlarge
This photo is about 30 years old. It was taken about 1981 or 1982 in Kowloon Hong Kong. Today when I searched the web for the “Floating City - Kowloon” I was not surprised to find out that Kowloon - The Floating City was all but gone. What struck me about this image was the background, high rise buildings in the background, boats lashed together in the foreground. It was also a very gray day when I “took a tour” of the city on a floating taxi. I also captured this image and was drawn to the color of the clothing against the gray sky. I was told that many people in Kowloon never set foot on land, that many in the city live their entire lives on water. What an experience for a young 20 something American just starting to see the world.

I did find some other photos even earlier around 1954 - Posted by Phil Roeder that were photographed by his father.
