Central, Hong Kong
As someone once said, there are always patterns in life, either by design or by patterns created by space – as in the space between things.
On the occasion of taking this particular picture – well, series of pictures – I was standing on an upper podium overlooking the veranda where this particular restaurant was located below me. It must have been late afternoon and where these waiters were having their down time between sittings. Here they are casually sitting around and where some are playing a Chinese board game.
I looking down at this group there was nothing there that really grabbed my attention. That is, until the patterns in the shape of things became apparent. There were the white shirts and black trousers, the relationships between all the entities, the hands around the board, the bodies around the board and the juxtaposition of those bodies in relationship to each other.
