Tessellation (missing)

Some of the buildings that used to house the motel are down to the slab now, but the floor tile in the bathrooms is still in place.

This is the floor from two different bathrooms, with a gap where the wall used to be. But it reminded me of M. C. Esher’s drawing of geese transforming themselves into fish, so in my mind*, that gap was the space where hexagons transformed into rectangles.
