Photographer's Note

This was taken in a marketplace in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong. The guy in the background was the proprietor and some of the goods he sold were copies of Chairman Mao's Little Red Book and the Proletariat type hat you see in the foreground. I like how the man was standing in a not very welcoming pose. I chose to focus on the book to sort of give the impression that it could have been Mao himself looming large in the background. I just wish he was wearing more traditional clothing.

I really don't use my 28mm lens often, so I view this as a bit of an experiment.
