A beautiful photographic walk into the Umbrella Revolution, the student movement for democracy in Hong Kong.
This is what night looks like in Mong Kok.
Needless to say, there’re many people here who’re simply walking about, looking at the exhibits.
I’ve come to think of this place as a temporary museum of sorts.
There’s no shortage of onlookers.
And it sets us thinking.
About what it would take before people take to the streets.
People are waiting.
People are reading.
People are living a life.
Elegance is an attitude.
Ever ready attitude.
Rough translation: No one knows when we’ll arrive at the destination of democracy, or even if there will be such a day; but today, if we’re able to take a step, we’ll take that step.
A beautiful umbrella – one of many.
There’re always reminders of how this might end.
Thanks for reading!
