Old Building in Hong Kong

Maybe a bit too much about Artipelag, now let's move to other continent. I took this photo in Hong Kong. I just like the dramatic feeling the old building offers, decorated with a lot of air conditioners and clothes-drying bamboo sticks. Compared with European residential buildings, those old buildings in Hong Kong offer no details or color, they were just built for practical reasons, housing as many people as possible. Maybe this is characteristic of Hong Kong.  Behind this old building stands a relatively newer building which i guess was built in 90s, creating a strong contrast.
