The Beauty Contest
This beauty contest was held at the Hooters Restaurant just off Kirby Drive in Houston, Texas during the spring of 2010. Some people condemn this restaurant chain because of the skimpy uniforms the waitresses wear. One should not be so quick because they hire young women with no prior restaurant experience and train them. In this lousy economy, that is something positive. Besides, what they wear is no worse than the cocktail waitresses in Vegas. Originally these were published in color, but there were extreme white balance problems so they were converted to black in white. In December 2012 the black and white conversions on these photos were redone to reflect my current standards. The two color photos were shot at an event called “Barely Legal” which is held on the 21st of each month.
