Hong Kong City

Title: Pick-Up Sticks.

Taken at Victoria Peak, Hong Kong, this time during the day (the night version of this scene is Hong Kong Night-scape).

Regarding the title, the shape of the buildings reminds me of pick-up sticks in a jar.

(Pick-up sticks being an ancient game my grandmother would pull out for us as children. You tip them on the ground then go around the players, each one picking up a stick so as not to move the other ones. Your turn’s over if you move the sticks, and whoever ends up with the most sticks wins. See, you’ll learn a lot if you read my site.

Huh, it’s not as obscure as I thought it might be. Just checked and there’s a Wikipedia page on it.)

I also did a green monochrome take facing in the opposite direction called The Peak.
