In which the Summit has constantly retains is organic Edwardian look with its rich colonial past as to its previous historically nature as it was once was a Fortified Pa Maori Site village in which numerous archaeological features still can be found while the present has caught it up with it past…

One winter afternoon day is the looking in between two harbours, Manukau to towards the Waitemata harbour……

Among viewing from the summit, it’s also the final resting place one of the founding fathers of Auckland Sir Logan Campbell, in which he’s rested in the same location where once the Marae- a community meeting house hall.. Among nearby is a flatbed in which is lowered is where the Pa’s Chieftain Residence once located…

#YesterdayInAuckland |#Auckland- Managere Bridge township and the old Bridge- A Gallery-

July 31, 2017


 

At one time in Auckland History, a Township naming Mangere Bridge, located in the Manukau Harbour, Used to be a major suburban hub that interconnects between Mangere Bridge to the Onehunga, in which that township was busy  in up to the mid 1980’s as the final construction of the new constructed  Managere Bridge that became operational in 1983…. In which took ten years to build, to replace the previous one in which still stands today….as a recreational park, part of the Community, in where people now days used it to walk to work, school.. Recreationally fish from the Harbour, with as part of Auckland’s bicycle peddling network also is a resting spot for resting..

Before 1983, the old Mangere Bridge constructed in 1914, it was widely used to the point where bridge up to moment in 1980’s it was beyond saturation point more than Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong’s old Kai Tak International Airport in Kowloon Bay   As the its replacement was still finalized in construction after a ten year stall after stall in construction due to labor disputes..  Back then driving on the old bridge in which Coronation road that lead up into the Mangere Bridge Township was intense intensified as the new bridge waits…  With one of the known traffic also it was one of the known roadways that link up travelling in from Auckland CBD towards Onehunga towards Mangere Bridge Township towards the Jean Batten international Airport- Auckland international Airport…

 

The old Mangere Bridge in which still stands today in which constructed during wartime 1914 in World War one and two, was design to be a wartime bridge the way how it was layout and design was to have elements of being Anti-Tank block, with some sentry towers… as a procedure the harbour also the bridge was mined for just in case.. Interesting enough the bridge itself was designed lowered as to counter any larger wartime or patrol boats from entry the mouth of the harbour…

bike riding is the now replacement of the Old Bridge in which previously serving the heavy automobiles that once saturated it’s tarmac roads..

During those times when the old Mangere Bridge was active, traffic thoroughfare through the Mangere Bridge Township was a lot more intensified than as now today… as now days the traffic is no longer through the main street of the village as it’s completely diverted through Auckland’s South-western Motorway –SH20.. As the large component of traffic is diverted the township has recently enjoyed its now provincial humbling as its thriving growing local community…..

香港 #AlreadyTomorrowInHongKong- Adventuring without #TARDIS | #HongKong – Central- A man made canyons of oriental towering Canyons- A Gallery

July 26, 2017


Hong Kong Central -中環-  is located in the very center of Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong.. in which is more boarded into the western District of Hong Kong Island..  it is greatly opposite to the Central business area of Tsim Sha Tsui  across the Victoria Harbour- in its previous name of the district was formerly named Victoria City that naming of Central hasn’t been used, or it’s been rarely utilized for name..

Within the Central, it’s one of the many cores cities that within Hong Kong Region..  as existing today is still the main focus area for international First Class for Multi Nationals finances – technologies Corporations- also the many countries consulates also a massive networks of arrays of  Malls every level   to be located within that district… Central’s landscape is like the in Mainland China’s Grand Canyon in the Hubei Province in where organically through time the Hubei’s Canyon landscape carved out by wind ice into towering mountains landscape like in throughout Hong Kong Landscape in which is replaced with the Concrete, metal steel glass towering buildings within a tropical forest that surrounds Hong Kong Also the mountainous areas of New Territories…….

 

Central in Hong Kong, is also was developed by the People of Hong Kong, also from the day from the day of British arrived developing Central on Kowloon Peninsula in which Central could be knowingly extended outwardly towards Sheung Wan, Aberdeen Street –Wing Kut Street with Admiralty.. After 1997 during the handover the People of Hong Kong made the region stronger with long term planning in which Hong Kong Has gone through strength to strength more. As that strength in long term planning translated in the succession of continuous buildings- construction developments that played turn Hong Kong region’s building towering landscape that it’ll always keeping itself already always in tomorrow…

When I look at every individual building, also every single street in Hong Kong,  this case in Central each of its own has its own story to tell, in which its individual design has lot of to say about its functionally how it reacts to the street environment organically, in which that organically component is Feng Shui- wind- water.. Also within that Feng Shui component each building is design according to street layout in which given way of giving them more flow of good energy in some cases like other designs try to absorb that good energy also deflect negative energy… in which the street way orientated to that manner in which that…every street town planning has a it’s Feng Shui elements..

canyons of towering mountains with ever changing oriental night time lantern skyline..

Changes towards the night its view is always constantly changing throughout from the morning towards the later in the night with its neonic towering city landscape, the Symphony of Lights which begins at 2000 Hours Hong Kong Time every night… in which it lights up from Wan Chi towards the Central, in which most of the building neonic with a symphony light show in between Tsim Sha Tsui……
