Modelling is quite a popular pass time amount the domestic helpers in Hong Kong on their days off. Whether this is just for mini competitions, amateur photographers or just to have fun with friends. Whilst in Mei Foo for my uniform shoot (see previous blog post) close by us was a small group of Indonesian girls, working on make-up.
It transpired of the girls Maya, was entering a beauty competition in Causeway Bay that afternoon and they were spending the morning getting ready in the Park.
Whilst we were taking a break on the uniform shoot, we got chatting and took some shots for Maya; which is an example of some of the strange things that can happen in Hong Kong.
These shot were taken as a favour to the girls so they had a record of the day; however, everything is a learning curve and not spotting the union jack and the missing contact lens is something that I won’t forget again.
