Admiralty Again

Again I find myself walking around Admiralty.

There are messages I’d like to read again and again.

_MG_1659 640

An expression of people’s will.

A bicycle – I wasn’t sure if that’s an exhibit or simply a bicycle.

_MG_1679 640

That’s an exhibit for sure – I saw this same car on campus at CUHK the other day.

“Jan Po Suen” is the Cantonese pronunciation for true universal suffrage.

George Orwell. Has it really come to this?

_MG_1704 640

Very creative.

_MG_1712 640

Translation: unity is strength.

_MG_1719 640

Pretty brollies…

_MG_1724 640

Colourful.

_MG_1725 640

The number of hours that must have been spent making these.

_MG_1732 640

But the medium is the message, I’d think.

_MG_1741 640

Meaning all of these are so fragile and vulnerable.

_MG_1751 640

Not unlike the will of a people.

_MG_1759 640

There’re obstacles.

That’s the People’s Liberation Army Forces Hong Kong Building – a very visible ominous reminder.

_MG_1771 640

Would a people’s determination be enough?

_MG_1775 640

History, we know, will sort out the villains and the heroes.

They’ve even got a map, in case a visitor is lost.

Thanks for reading!
