As evening came on, the staff, at the end of their work, were illuminated in a kitchen enclosed by windows.
I could grab some shots and enjoy all the details of pots and pans and various appareils de cuisine.

A pot for evry possible need, and all black with use!(I think that there is a chinese proverb "The blacker the wok, the better the cook")

I enjoyed all the images in this series as they tell a story via moments and objects. I would imagine the folks in these phtographs would love them as well.
