I need a vacation

Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Brian Yen

Spotted this little shack on the roof of a building under construction in Hong Kong. It's almost like a secluded little temple on top of the Himalaya. The only difference is the the music of constant hammering and drilling, the aromatic scent of latex paint and occasionally shrouded in concrete mist. One thing they do share though, is the prayer you surely would be singing, wishing you could end up at a better place.
