Anything positive that I’ve ever told you about my summer job I take back.
I am literally counting down the days (21) until I can leave and never have to suffer through another shift of pulling pints for racist, sexist, homophobic neanderthals. (They’re not all that bad, but unfortunately a minority of loud assholes tend to overwhelm a majority of decent human beings (some of whom I shall actually miss dearly)).
Also tonight I managed to set off the alarm when I was locking up because I was so knackered.
And the other day I had to fish stringy bits of sick out of a bath plug hole in one of the hotel rooms.
Basically no, my hot coworkers and the (few) nice customers no longer make up for the crappy pay and long hours.
Hong Kong has been covered many times by many people in this style. The density of the city screams for these sort of compositions. I never really acted on these instincts, the idea of copying someone else really throws me off.
The thing is, when I really think about it, everything has already been done. Why should I limit my self because photography has been around for all this time, so here we are…
