"Lo Baan" Temple 魯班廟

A quick sketch at "Lo Baan" Temple, Ching Lin Terrace, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong

"Lo Baan" is worshipped as a protector god of all construction workers and architects in the Chinese world. What I like most of this temple is the interesting roof design.

Masonry Wall Trees at Forbes Street, Kennedy Town, Hong Kong

Wall trees are considered a unique cultural heritage in Hong Kong. They sprouted naturally on masonry walls built before the Second World War. Many of them are now mature trees that have roots wrapping up old masonry walls in many parts of Hong Kong Island. The Forbes Street wall trees is the largest and most majestic group in Hong Kong!
