Photographer's Note

This is another of my shots from Chinatown, in this case from the upstairs section of the Chinatown Centre on Spadina.

I like the way this man is looking over his shoulder at us, turning his attention briefly away from the miniature world in front of him, like a casual god interrupted in the act of creating the small reality we see in the background.

(In fact it's an architectural model which, as far as I know, has nothing to do with him... I think he was actually watching the Chinese opera karaoke competition that was going on one floor down... so I let my imagination run away with me sometimes, so sue me.)

Tech: this was a photograph of opportunity, which means that I didn't have time to get everything just right while shooting it. I cropped it, did some colour burn, and lightened up his face somewhat, plus evened out its skin tones.
