As each day passes, the Mong Kok camp becames more elaborately decorated with features not present at Admiralty. There are multiple shrines, statues made out of umbrellas and street lights are given a botanical make over. There is enough to confuse or fascinate those inadvertently pass by.

Protestor takes his turn under the barricade. He works nearby and can come to help very easily. He isn’t a student, he is an engineer protesting in his spare time. Sign reads – “Universal suffrage for the legislative council and for civic nomination”.

A few days ago, somebody set up a shrine for the God of Justice which is worshipped in every police station in Hong Kong. This could pose a problem for police later, because when the time comes to take down the barricade, the police have to take down the idol as well. This will curse the police station and the family of the police officers involved.
Many people are merely curious, or refuse to support the protests either due to time constraints or because they are against the protests on principle.
