Choi Hung - the rainbow estate

Choi Hung the rainbow estate

Photographer's Note

The Choi Hung Estate is located in the Wong Tai Sin district of Kowloon.

It was built in 1962 and consists of 11 blocks of public rental housing.

In Cantonese 'choi hung' means rainbow - hence the seven colours used in the estate.

I took this photo this morning from a flat on the 16th floor of a nearby residential block, which overlooks the estate.

The sun was very strong this morning and so the colours seemed to stand out even more than usual.
