I have been staying under this footbridge for more than 10 years

Michael has been staying under the footbridge near the MTR station for over 10 years. He's seen many changes happen in the North Point and Fortress Hill areas over the years, especially with the construction of new buildings and a number of individuals affected by homelessness coming and going.

"They're building a new commercial block in that empty space across the footbridge. Those bags on the chair belong to another man who has now moved into public housing somewhere, so he's just left all his belongings that aren't valuable there. I see him come by sometimes".

Whilst there are a lot of changes happening around him, Michael has still captured the things that have remained unchanged over the years, like the wet market stalls and the letterboxes in front of the old nearby building.
