Not Peking Duck – Dead Duck

Hong Kong’s subway is state of the art – no question. Advertising shouts from its walls, see me, buy me, eat me!

There was something about this image (below) I scanned as I scurried by – with battalions of Hong Kong people – that left me feeling a little despondent.

I couldn’t quite define my disquiet. Was it because the composition (body language) of the young duck suggested to me, ‘feed me’ or  even perhaps ‘protect me’?

Sometimes I think I could be a Vegetarian again. Vegetarians have a point of view that is worth considering more closely.
