Hong Kong Lucida

Street Colours at Mong Kok

Another day on the streets of Mong Kok.

It’s different every time.

_MG_1045 640

I’m pretty sure the above weren’t here the other day.

This is the work of bricolage – the art of making do.

_MG_1047 640

The details change.

_MG_1048 640

But the task of reading and understanding goes on.

_MG_1049 640

What Hong Kong wants is not very hard to understand.

Umbrellas, society and home – who doesn’t want those?

_MG_1066 640

Perhaps the barricades could be a bridge some day.

_MG_1069 640

There’re mobile libraries here.

_MG_1082 640

A community serving a community.

_MG_1084 640

We’ve to learn to read.

_MG_1090 640

There’s a willingness to do the work of waiting.

_MG_1103 640

Cheeky umbrellas.

_MG_1142 640

The minions are still waiting with good humour.

_MG_1150 640

The umbrellas descend.

_MG_1155 640

Mong Kok has a new look these days.

_MG_1173 640

Again, humour.

_MG_1186 640

Waiting.

_MG_1189 640

Some more humour. True democracy is a fortress.

_MG_1205 640

There’s a message here to be deciphered.

_MG_1218 640

Safety.

_MG_1220 640

There’s healing waiting to be done.

_MG_1231 640

The police love Hong Kong too.

_MG_1244 640

If there is no love, respect and peace, there’s no Hong Kong.

What else can we do, except to pray for wisdom on all sides.

    Thanks for giving us update pictures of Hong Kong! As a refugee fleeing communism in Vietnam and having Chinese heritage in my blood, my heart is with the protest! Bless you all!
