Rat Race

(I felt tired posting photos so I ceased uploading for the past two weeks. now I'm back. in black)

Hong Kong, China

The rat race in this place is really intense. You can feel it even in the streets. Sometimes I think it's funny when I see some people walking furiously fast or even running but it's how it is in HK. Survival of the fittest. The strong shall live, the weak shall die.
