For somewhere which looked almost Soviet in style, there was life to be seen up above the road.  From street lights above a big crossroads (Tonkin Street and Cheung Sha Wan Road), pigeons were watching the wildlife below.

Moving a little further way you can see these older apartment blocks with the beautiful corner buildings.  It is in between these buildings that you find the street markets and the life of this place.
