Banyan Tree, Forbes Street. Dr Bruce King, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University.

This is inspired by the work of Prof. Jim at HKU. Until I met him I had not paid much attention to our lovely banyan trees growing on old stone walls, now I look for them everywhere. The roots of the trees remind me of the complex, intertwined nature of life in Hong Kong. Such a busy and complex city means that our lives cross and re-cross, just like the roots of the trees. The walls are the foundations of our city, supporting us in our daily lives. Lets hope there is ample substance to them and they don't crumble due to the needs of a few powerful people or from the pressure of external influences.
