signs at war

these were taken during my visit to hong kong in 2004. the street signage and adverts are amazing. trying to out-do one another the signs reach further and further over the street to create an aggregated neon canopy, a physical manifestation (or predecessor) of those annoying web pop-ups. the interesting thing about this signage war is that they actually manage to mask the dilapidated 50 story housing blocks above them.
