Photographer's Note

A shopkeeper at a fast food place in one of the Beijing hutongs pauses for a moment to count some loose change.

My previous hutong photos were taken nearby the Forbidden City. This hutong is much further out near the south 3rd Ring Road. Whereas the previous hutong could be described as Beijing's showcase hutong, being so close to the centre of town, this one is a bit more down to earth... everything is a little dirtier and a little less organised.

Tech notes:
Heavily cropped from the original. I'm not 100% sure if I got the cropping correct, so workshops or comments most welcome. I'll post the uncropped photo as a workshop to this photo.

I waited until there was somebody going past before taking the photo.

As it was a heavy crop, and was ISO200, there was a bit of noise visible in the photo. I decided to add even more, so the noise you see is intentional.
