After a late night and a sleep in, I missed my window for a trail run and decided on an urban crawl along a streamlined version of my Old Kowloon Tour route. Conditions were quite cool and overcast: ideal.
Lots of photos here guys, so get ready for the barrage:
Overcast! Hong Kong Island
Someone swimming in the harbour!! Not really my first choice of venue!
A tree growing on top of an industrial building in To Kwa Wan
Quite an old industrial building in TO Kwa Wan, possibly art deco style?
Passing through a section of footpath with some building works. I guess the roof of this section was 6 foot tall.... just short enough so I couldn't stand up straight!
Deserted parking garage bordering on the old Airport site
A mass of tangled branches
Maryknoll Convent School on Boundary Rd
A Woman's Volleyball Tournament at the sports fields along Boundary Rd
More urban snatches
Pipes with some random items hanging in a plastic bag
A doorway in Sham Shui Po with an awesome pattern
Detail of the pattern
Locals playing a Shanghaiese card game - I have no idea how to play this
Confusing to everyone else as well?
A park out near Nam Cheong on my way to the western waterfront
A rusty gang-plank. Great colours and textures
Reached the shipping yards in West Kowloon. A huge claw
Three excavators neatly in a row
A man fishing with a handline between the dock and a barge
More fishermen. This time with rods fishing from rocks with Hong Kong Island in the background
I must say that despite talking down road running recently, I really enjoyed this almost exploratory run around some of the less seen sections of Kowloon.
See you out on the trails!
