  1. A good balance and echo of colours, particularly the green-shuttered window. The Hop Hing meat company is great – beats Hybu Cig Cymru (meat promotion Wales).

  2. For me it is all about the driver wearing his corporate tee shirt slumped over the wheel.

    Is he asleep?

    Is it a position of despair?

  3. Rex – he’s dead meat, especially now that Colin has told his employer that he’s asleep on the job.

  4. He’s certainly not hop-hing, is he? :-)

    More stories – this is very entertaining. Wonderful colors, elements and details like the green window with AC unit. That black triangle graphic on the truck seems dynamic — in contrast to the driver!

  5. I guess it was the effort of turning the wheel that lead to this position. That turned wheel does add some depth to this slice of the HK scenery. The chinese characters for Hop and Hing are an ‘interesting combination’ (that’s how they could be read in Japanese anyway!). I can’t help but think that the truck is hiding another interesting scene behind involving Victor Workshop.

  6. At first I thought the truck was moving, rather worrying.

    An unusual sight or at least sleeping position. It’s amazing how important the yellow shirt is.

  7. blues and yellows work well, particularly with his yellow shirt. He isn’t really hop hing to work though.

    Oh Christina made the same bad pun. I think I’ll leave it in anyway.

  8. do they sell Kangaroo meat?

    yellow shirt, the black diagonal/window diagonal/hand diagonal, good dynamics.

  9. It would have been amusing without the yellow shirt, but… I think that if this fellow saw the picture he would be hope hing that his boss didn’t see it. Sorry, the tone had been set and my resolve was weak.
