Centered around 17 Shing Wong Street, an old hilly neighborhood that's just a stone's throw away from downtown Hong Kong, this little collection titled "Down Memory Lane" captures the moment and whimsical spirit of a lively and breathing community. The core of the series - the 1950s era walk-up building - celebrates its 70th year birthday this year as it overlooks the surrounding block that has now commenced redevelopment work.
"STORY IN THE VIEW"
"A short story is what you see when you look out the window" - Mavis Gallant
Peering out of this post-war era wrought iron window and balcony, the stories one sees changes every day in the subtlest way. Businesses come and go, a new neighbor moves in, or a regular at the coffee shop below brings home a new four-legged companion. Under the shade of the age-old banyan tree, little may have changed outside these emerald green frames in the grand scheme of things, but as revitalization works in the block commence, the story of this 70-year-old neighborhood will enter a new chapter.
