The Bamboo Love

The other day I was walking around Central during lunch time. I saw 3 “masters” are loading bamboo sticks on their truck.

In Hong Kong, you can see bamboo scaffoldings virtually in every construction site. It is one of the most iconic temporary structure you can see here.

Still, the business is shrinking because stainless steel scaffolding are becoming more preferred. People say it is dangerous to build and work around bamboo scaffolding, but the truth is we hardly hear any injuries in the news.

I wish to document whenever I see bamboo scaffolding. God knows 10 years later they could be replaced completely.
