Two contrasts that form part of the modern picture in Malaysia. The old Muslim woman sells flowers in the street in Bukit Bintang, a modern shopping area in Kuala Lumpur (a bit like Ginza or 5th Avenue type of place).
In front of the glow of the upmarket fashion chains, she sells her flowers on the street. I sat next to her and saw the chance to shoot a silhouette.

Hi Justin. Real world and the world behind the display window. Title, picture and text complement each other perfectly. I like the photo very well. The narrow frame looks great. And black and white is a good choice. Well observed and presented. regards, Wolfgang.

The fake world of the ad seems more real than the shadow play of reality. Interesting shot & great to see you sticking to your style in KL. I'm wondering where this might lead to next. Have a fine week.

Fabulous shot as seen in Fashion magazine. The way you treat the silhouette foreground agaisnt a clear poster makes a great result.

it`s interesting to see the contrasts between two different cultures. Or two different worlds, the genuin and the superficial. You captured this scene at the right moment, well done !
Have a nice evening.

A clash of idiologies. Could not be more contrasted like here. The poster woman looks extremly tantalizing. BW, Frank

A lovely graphic photo, it was worth waiting for. The Silhouette has come out really well.
All the best
