Number 7: 7-11 on the 7th day

Elgin St. at Shelley St., Mid-Levels, Central, Hong Kong

Climbing up to the Mid-Levels in Hong Kong’s Central district is no mean feat. To reach Hollywood Road and SoHo, for example, the climb is steeper than anticipated. The Mid-Levels Escalators are a convenient means of transport for people residing in the neighbourhoods above and commuting to work in the offices below. I chose “unwisely” on this humid afternoon, and I walked a good fraction of the way up, until this 7-11 came to my rescue. One long draw of a cold drink later, I made this photo with the people in the scene “converged” (or is it “frozen”) in their spots.

I made the photo above on 7 June 2012. This post appears on Fotoeins Wide at

    We spent the summer of 2001 in Taiwan, teaching English in a Chinese elementary school. Our three young daughters were there with us, helping us in the classroom. My husband got to visit Hong Kong, but alas, our three daughters and I did not. In Taiwan there are 7-11 stores everywhere, including across the street from each other. I wonder, is it that way in Hong Kong too?

    • Hi, Ann. Yes, it’s pretty much the same in Hong Kong; 7-11s are everywhere, as well as CircleK convenience stores. For someone born and raised in North America, the 7-11 and CircleK brings back memories of being a kid. Thanks for stopping by and for your comment!
