The Backyard of a Restaurant

Yuen Long, Hong Kong view map

This part of alley was abused by a restaurant for cleaning work and the storage of LPG containers.
For these ladies, lives are never easy, they have to work in this dark, hot and
dirty area for more than 12 hours a day.

Doesn't look all that dirty CM, but I guess it must be hot, dark and humid there...
I call your serie... " Parallel Lives " because there's what's happening on the front and at the same exact time, in the back, another lifestyle, occupation, needs, environment exist.
Wonderful images CM
