A SUNDAY ON LAMA GRANDE JATTE —2015

Not far from the southern shore of Hong Kong Island, there's a small scenic island called Lama. That's where they build a large coal fired power plant supplying a large portion of electricity needs on Hong Kong island. This stretch of the beach is sandwiched between the power plant and a sewer exit. Since there are so few accessible beaches in Hong Kong. On a nice spring weekend, people still hang out at this beach even if the water quality and scenery is less than perfect.
