Between. Capture something in the middle of two things. It can be a person or object, or simply the space in between. It can also be a feeling or relationship — a bond that connects people, or a space that separates. This word might also reflect a choice you need to make — the challenge of choosing one thing over another — or any kind of transition, from childhood to adulthood, single life to married life, day to night. – The Daily Post
I’ve been doing this whole Hong Kong trip recap. It somewhat fits the theme of between as in a transition after their handover back to China, they have the whole 50 years of no change but you can see the influence the change it as has as they transition into a whole new environment. Plus, crossing into this world from my normal life in Canada is a temporary but in between feeling.
However, aside from those technicalities, Hong Kong is known from their precious land as you look its endless amounts of skyscrapers.
With that, walking in Central, there never stops to have that feeling that you are small when looking between buildings, there are even more buildings. Its just an endless backdrop of them.
Between the buildings, more buildings
Hong Kong is always changing even when I only went a year and a half instead of my normal three years. There’s always something new to see and while walking on the overpass, I saw parallel to us, the interesting location of the Apple Store, between sandwiched between two buildings under the overpass. It is a catchy location, don’t you think?

Now, we can’t talk about Hong Kong and not talk about its harbors and the water and this brings us to my always needed Star Ferry ride between the two harbors. Its decreased immensely in time from when I was a kid, thanks to the whole filling the water for man-made land. I’m skipping that over because I’ll get angry.
Still, on the foggy day, you can see the outlines of the tall buildings on the right in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui on the left. Between it is between the harbors and it always has some boats sailing about. Even in the fog, it was a treat to be on there.

Here is my response to the Weekly Photo Challenge this week on Between. How would you interpret it?
