STATUE SQUARE .. sometimes I have heard it called Chater Square because Statue Square North and South is separated by Chater Road. Statue Square is pretty much the very heart of the downtown Hong Kong Central Business District.
To go to the Central Library ..
To use the computers .. Patti and I almost daily walked through Statue Square. I just did this exact walk and decided to share it with Patti for memories and with all of you who might be interested in the beauty of downtown Hong Kong.
You get off the Tram ..
After getting down from the Tram .. you walk West and then turn around and look up at the HSBC (Hong Kong Shanghai Banking Corporation) Building.
Then you turn around and proceed through Statue Square heading North for the Central Library.
The below view was probably Patti’s most favorite view as she would sit in the North section of Statue Square and just gaze at the below setting.
This is where we are heading .. The Hong Kong City Hall and Central Library as seen from Statue Square.
I have crossed Connaught Road Central and am standing to the West of the Library looking back from a distance across at the buildings that ‘frame’ Statue Square.
The HSBC is straight ahead above and below. Immediately to the right of the HSBC Building is brown hued Standard Chartered Bank Building.
It is an odd-light-day and the above photos are .. for some reason .. on the dark-side. I tend to prefer darker photos but today I just shot what my camera decided to shoot exposure-wise.
HONG KONG! Truly! I am blessed. I hope you liked the above memory jog my Dear One ..
Smiles .. Cap ..
I JUST GOT A TAD MISTY-OF-EYE SEEING THE ABOVE PHOTOS AND THINKING OF ALL OF OUR WALKS THROUGH STATUE SQUARE MY DEAR ONE!
