This is a marvelous shot. The 747 making a sharp right turn near buildings is breathtaking.

I lived there when I was a kid. It's really close that could even touch the wheels of the plane if we standed on the roof!

Ahhh, the mid-90s, when the Kai Tak Glory Days were in full swing. Thanks for the great shot :)

Precise clear details i.e. drying clothes laundry, clear side of building on left with stucco and the drainpipes as well as the fast growing foilage....bushes, plants just above. also the new building on the photos right and the middle building with the tv antennas and scalffolding and single air conditioners unit all come together to give this photo a sense of depth as my eye goes across it.
