A Word A Week Photo Challenge: Industrial

This week’s Sue has chosen the word INDUSTRIAL! I spent a whole week taking forever to get this post up…hoping that I would get a chance to walk around Montreal and snap some pictures.  However, work still seems to have rules my life.  At least, I have a long weekend, so what can I complain about?

Instead of Montreal, I bring in more Hong Kong pictures.  I took a lot of pictures so its turning out to be quite useful.  Hong Kong is quite an industrial place filled with industries because of its geographic location and it differs from where you are on the main island, or outlying islands.  The public transportation is very varied.  With the handover, the phenomenon I hate the most and probably could ramble on forever would be the land filling operations. In order to expand the economy, they only way for them to have more space is to fill in the ocean with land.  I extremely hate this.  Hong Kong is essentially a harbor, and what is the meaning of some day just closing up the water.  It wouldn’t be a harbor anymore, right? Anyways, enough of this rambling, it’ll just get me all worked up.

Here are the industrial Hong Kong pictures!

Here we go! My interpretation of INDUSTRIAL.  Everything industrial has its good and its bad.  We just always have to hope that industrialization will bring more pros than cons to the society and all other elements involved.

  1. Great photos, you’re right, very industrial! Some of those photos remind me of how Canada and the United States were back in the Seventies when technology was only a glimmer in someone’s eye. Actually, now that I think of it, your photos remind me of the movie Rocky where he’s running on the pier and he’s passing by all these boats in an industrial area of Philadelphia. Wow! Now that I think of it, these photos are amazing!

  2. I love these!! Especially the first pic with the mountains and the shipping rigs, it’s like those paintings we were shown in Art History during the Romantic Era/Industrial Age, where people were showing technology overtaking nature.
