Page from My Sketchbooks Part 9: Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter, Hong Kong, 16th March 2013.

New notebook 2

The typhoon shelter area in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, makes an ideal refuge port for hawkers in Sam Pans. Not sure they pay harbor fees but observing their living conditions, I would guess not. It should be difficult to survive in such conditions. In addition they are surrounded by elaborate and noisy sea reclamation projects being done in their vicinity.

You may think it is glamorous to live on the sea but here its definitely not. The photo from my iPhone creates a colourful and interesting composition, but I think my sketch shows the real life situation that the boat people faces by living here.
