Which came first, the egg or the chicken?

As i was shooting at the Auto Show in Chengdu for a car-manufacturer, i suddenly realized how surrealistic the situation was…
On my left, fancy cars with good looking models. On my right, women and men carrying around cameras and using it with no restraint. A kind of ‘hard-core’ situation where models offer their sexiest postures to the excited long-zoom photographers… It  is obvious to me that most of the photographers (including women!) are mostly interested in the models. Maybe the tantalizing feel of being a fashion photographer? Still, would there be photographers shooting if there was no cars there ?
Is the car the excuse to shoot the model ? Or vice versa ?
Which came first, the egg or the chicken?

I thought it would be a nice delicacy to myself to bring some subtleness to the situation. So I had fun being the photographer who shoot the photographers who shoot the models, ooops… cars.

    I am not sure why originally, but i think it might have been because i was too distracted by all the flashy colors from the car show and wanted the viewer only to concentrale on the people in the photo
