Poisson de décembre

Earlier this week, pictures of hundreds of shark fins laid out to dry on a pavement in Western District were posted online. This prompted the SCMP to run a story about the stench created by offending fins (as if the poor mutilated sharks were not attracting enough controversy already). However, the report also highlights the fact that wherever you go in this city, you're rarely far from a shrivelled kipper of some sort:
 
hanging out in the street (Kam Tin)

or unceremoniously dangling in a temple (Yuen Long)
Railings, benches and other forms of street furniture are also commonly occupied by frazzled finned (or de-finned) friends. Maybe they would make nice, fragrant Hong Kong-themed Christmas tree decorations. Hmmm.
