Alone in the High-Rise

A single apartment is lit in a high-rise complex in Hong Kong. Your Shot photo editor Matt Adams published this photo in the Daily Dozen, saying, "There was just something so captivating seeing that one single apartment lit up around dusk. My eye went right to it when this image popped up during my edit of the Daily Dozen. It's a nice little moment that is well captured."
