The Sampan

Low tide and the burned-out remains of the abandoned 250-year-old fishing village of Ma Wan on Green Island, Hong Kong.  In the distance, above the trees, is the Tsing Ma Bridge, one of the world’s largest suspension bridges. A single sampan sits in the once-bustling bay – contrasting old world and new.
