Weekly Photo Challenge: (Neon) Sign

This is something unique in Hong Kong.

Neon signs everywhere jutting out onto the streets.

Different colors, designs, some vertical, some horizontal, some straight, some curved – all bright and lit up during the night.2667919810_dce8d9b353_oA

Most of them are written in Chinese – only readable by those who know the language.

Neon signs used to be associated with vibrancy. Of course, we are a vibrant city – a city that never sleeps!
