Containing My Excitement // Shipping containers are liberally stacked on both sides of the channel separating Tsing Yi Island with the Kowloon Peninsula - a slice of the gargantuan Port of Hong Kong.  This shot was actually a bit of an accident.  I was flying nearby Stonecutters Bridge to the south of Tsing Yi and my focus was on getting some shots of this wonderful piece of infrastructure in the evening light, but as I returned, I saw this view and took a snap.  I wanted to explore the container terminal in more detail (and take a couple of those awesome lookdown shots that play on the scale and symmetry) but a combination of lack of battery and poor reception put an end to that.  Those shots will need to wait for another day. Shipping has played a central role in Hong Kong's economic development since its colonial era - even in its earliest days it was seen as a gateway for Chinese goods to be exported to the rest of the world, and vice versa.  In the 1980s, when China embraced a more open model of economic development and trade, Hong Kong's port was poised for growth.  I believe it was around this time that Hong Kong shot to the top to claim the mantle of the busiest shipping port in the world.  It was handling an incredible amount of goods - goods made in Hong Kong and China were flowing out to the world, and in turn Hong Kong handled increasing amounts of imported goods as local consumption trends became more sophisticated in line with increased wealth. Alas, Hong Kong eventually lost the mantle of being the world's busiest port - first to Singapore, and then, eventually, to Shanghai, Ningbo and Shenzhen too.  Hong Kong's status as a manufacturing hub faded by the 1990s, and the reality is that its role as the gateway to China was only ever going to be temporary.  As shipping laws and restrictions were relaxed and China built up ports in Mainland cities, Hong Kong's position of uniqueness gradually faded.  For now I still think we can count on there being a massive bustling container terminal in Hong Kong, but there has been plenty of talk that old container terminals will yield something that the city so desperately needs - urban land for housing.
