Sham Shui Po is a little run down, but is full of life when you move towards the street markets.

What you may notice in these street photos is the predominance of men!  Maybe because the streets here sell all sorts of electrical gadgetry and renovated hardware.  You can even pick up a pair of long johns to keep out the winter chill.
